Once upon a time...

Imperial Fiddlesticks Emporium came to be when I had a very difficult time in life, several years ago. I was feeling very down and the only thing that kept me going was what I have always loved: Creating, designing and making beautiful things.

I started to make mini hats for my own use to go with my everyday Lolita wardrobe and eventually was convinced by a couple of friends that I should try selling them as well.
It escalated from there.

I have developed my own techniques in creating my items and I have also, after some time of just making hats, branched out into making other accessories as well.

There simply aren't enough pretty things readily available in this world and I will do my best to rectify that!

Thank you for visiting Imperial Fiddlesticks Emporium!

Please read before ordering:

All things found in my shop are designed and handmade by me in my home studio.
The hats are usually one of a kind and can not be replicated, whereas the hairclips and bowties are either one of a kind of limited edition.

In a few cases I may have extra of a certain fabric and can make more of the same kind of bowtie or hairclip but I can’t guarantee it. However, if you are interested in either a bowtie or hairclip in a particular color or print that has already sold, please don’t hesitate to ask me if I can make another one. :)

Please feel free to convo me if you have any questions. I’ll be happy to answer and I will try to do so as soon as I can.

Imperial Fiddlesticks Emporium also has a facebook page where you can see more pictures of my work as well as pictures of recent custom orders and possible news of competitions and special deals.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, you are free to notify me and we can try to work something out. However, any return shipping fees are paid for by the buyer.

If the items break in some way during shipping, let me know and I can either explain to you how to fix it, or I can offer to repair it myself. This, however, should not happen as I am very careful when packing and shipping all orders.

Also, please make sure the item/s are really to your taste before purchasing and keep in mind that colors may vary slightly depending on your screen settings.
Payment is accepted through Paypal only. If you need to cancel an already made order, please contact me as soon as possible to let me know. If I haven’t heard from you and have received no payment I will re-list the items after one week.
All ready-to-send items purchased in my shop will be sent within a week of a received order. Hairclips, bowties and any other smaller items will be send through regular first class mail, carefully packed in padded envelopes. Larger items, such as the hats, will be sent with registered mail and will include a Tracking-ID so that you can keep track of where your package is.

If you would like your items sent any other way, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do. Bear in mind that shipping costs may rise, though.

If there are any problems with the delivery, contact me and we can sort out the problems.

Please be aware that all international packages will go through your local customs office and additional fees, taxes and duties may be added. This is entirely out of my control.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always welcome provided I have the time to execute them. Please convo me if you are interested in one and I will let you know if I can take on the project.

Note that before I start on any Custom Order I require payment in advance, usually a 50% deposit to cover any material costs. The other 50% should be paid upon completion. The time required to complete a Custom Order may vary depending on how busy I am and how much work is required. Custom mini hats will take more time than a Custom bowtie. I will, of course, keep the buyer updated with progress pictures throughout the whole process to ensure you get exactly what you are looking for.

If you have questions, comments or issues, please do contact me first to discuss it before leaving a neutral or negative feedback. I will try my very best to work things out so that both of us are happy in the end. I enjoy open communication with customers and I hope you won’t hesitate to tell me if there is anything on your mind.

Thanks for popping by!
