About

About Found Object Fashion

Found Object Fashion is a labor of love that began in 2008 while I was working two jobs - neither of which served as my creative outlet. I spent frequent evenings and weekends in front of my sewing machine, creating to my hearts content. Every order, every item lovingly packaged and shipped off to a distant address gave me joys that money couldn't buy.

I choose to use repurposed materials because of the clash of two ideals - wanting the best of everything and wanting to waste nothing. By reusing materials I find in my local thrifts stores (and sometime my own closet) I am able to do my part in leaving the world a bit better than I found it.

Everything in my shop was handmade by me using a combination of my mother's Pfaff sewing machine and hand sewing. Because of the repurposed nature of the materials, each item is one-of-a-kind and therefore not easily reproduced.

Thanks for visiting!

I try to only repurpose items that are at the end of their life cycle. Where do I get these items, you ask?

1. People give things to me. If I cannot use them, I donate them to Goodwill or St. Vincent 's.

2. I rescue things before they make it into the trash. The apparel industry is (unfortunately) not the most eco-savvy industry. Samples are made and cannot be reused because of gaping holes or fitting marks left behind. Who would want these? Me! Creative cutting can do wonders.

3. I visit my local "last chance" thrift store. It is a wonderful place full of all types of colors, materials, and prints. Unfortunately, you literally have to dig through giant boxes. But, for you, I'm willing to make the sacrifice.

Payment
If you are a Wisconsin resident, sales tax will be collected with your payment.

Please pay promptly! If payment has not been received within 3 days, the sale will be canceled and the item re-listed.
Shipping
Items will ship within 2 business days once payment has been received.

Since each piece is one of a kind, I try to include Delivery Confirmation on all orders shipped within the United States. Please let me know in advance if you would like to add insurance to your order, as shipping charges will need to be adjusted.

I reuse as much shipping material as possible, and I kindly ask that you reuse the boxes/envelopes shipped to you as you are able.
Refunds and Exchanges
I hope you are completely satisfied with your purchase. If not, please return the item(s) within 7 days of receiving it (please send me a message so I know to expect its arrival). I will refund your money (less shipping charges) only if the item is returned in the condition it was delivered in. Damaged or used items are not returnable.
Additional policies and FAQs
At this time, I am unable to do custom orders (unless you are like my auntie and you live in the area. Come peruse my stash of repurpose-able materials!). Everything I make is a one-of-a-kind as I am restricted to materials I am able to find in the area.
