About IfAndWhenWorkshop

Sales 213
On Etsy since 2013

Happy. Quirky. Home.

If and When Workshop was born out of my life-long history of handmade goods crafted for friends and family, and the need to find a new creative project after a day job fell though during a season of budget changes.

Feeling exasperated at the dry offerings of more paper-pushing office jobs in Washington D.C., I asked myself "If and When" was I finally going to take a leap of faith and try to live the creative life I had hoped for? With the encouragement of family and friends, If and When Workshop began offering homemade goods and happy design for the here and now.

Based in a tiny urban apartment in Washington DC, all of the designs that come out of our workshop are home-grown and nurtured with love and thoughtfulness. This one-woman show aims to provide simple and happy designs that will cheer up your living space and bring some much needed joy into the world.

Returns and exchanges
Our items are all made by hand, and have some natural variations and minor imperfections that are part of the beauty of buying handmade! Please take the time to read carefully through the product listings before you purchase!

We love what we make, but if you are for any reason unhappy with your purchase, or if you require a different size or style, we welcome both returns and exchanges on *non-custom created* and *non-sale* items within 7 days of receipt.

Items must be returned in their original condition in order to qualify for a refund. Return shipping is the customer's responsibility. Refunds will be issued upon our shop receiving the returned item.

All sale items and "grab box" items are final sale and are not eligible for refund or exchange.

We do not accept returns on custom orders. However, if you receive your order and have any concerns, please get in contact and we will do our best to work out a solution with you.
We're glad to offer easy payment options through Etsy Direct Checkout or Paypal.
PLEASE NOTE: FINAL SHIPPING FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON WILL OCCUR DECEMBER 18th. Thursday, December 16th 2015 will be the last day for orders that will be shipped before the New Year! All orders placed after 11:59 EST December 16th will be shipped out Tuesday, January 5th 2016! Get your holiday orders in early so we can be sure to get them to you before our holiday break! Thank you for your understanding!

Domestic Customers: Until teleportation becomes 'a thing' (and we hope it does), we look forward to shipping your purchases to you through USPS Priority options. In-stock items ship in 1-3 business days upon receipt of payment. Custom created items are subject to the stated turn around times agreed upon in their listings. Please note: if your Etsy and Paypal addresses do not match, additional time may be required to verify proper shipping information.

We'd love to send a guardian angel or fairy godmother with every one of our parcels to make sure they are timely, but unfortunately once they are handed off to our sweet mail-woman the timing depends on USPS. We do our best to be sure that tracking numbers are available for all shipments so that you can keep an eye on your purchase's shipping progress.

Please contact us if you have domestic shipping requests outside of our standard shipping procedures. We'll do our best to come up with a solution!

Potential International Customers: We hope to serve you soon! We're new at this, so we're working to better understand how to send our happy goods to your hands. We hope to have international shipping options ready for you in the next couple months. Thank you for your patience, and please keep our goods in mind for the future!
Additional policies and FAQs
{Custom Orders}
Turning your vision into reality is part of what we love about creating custom. When you reach out to us to make a custom creation, we will make a listing specifically for you! The turn-around and shipping times for custom creations vary, so we ask that you read your custom listing carefully and communicate openly with us about your hopes and expectations.
Custom orders are a great way for new ideas to knock on our door! We reserve the rights to all artwork, right to photograph and reproduce ideas that begin as custom orders unless an exclusive agreement is arranged before the order is placed.

We are working on offering our items for wholesale. Contact us for more information and to be put on notice when we begin wholesaling!

{Discounted Prices}
Our pricing is something that we think long and hard about. We do not offer special discounts or bulk discounts other than the *sale* prices that we set on individual items or special occasion coupon codes. Thank you for understanding!
