This is my second order from this shop. Couldn't be happier with my new beautiful chair. She is so talented and goes above and beyond to make the perfect furniture.

Sarai was beyond amazing to work with! From sourcing the perfect chair to finding the right color and fabric combo- I could not be happier with this whole creative experience! She is incredibly talented and dedicated to the products puts out. She even helped me navigate the greyhound shipping services to make sure the chair made it to its new home. I would highly recommend her and her company. I will definitely come back to her for projects in the future! Thank you Sarai for the perfect chair :)

Just like Grandma would have loved!

This shop is the culmination of my passion for art & design and my soulful effort to maintain the heart of this little country gal!
ItTakesUnderstanding refers to the verses in Proverbs 24:3-4. These verses are the reason I decided as a teenager to continue my education in design in the first place. While praying about what my future was meant to hold and what I was meant to do, God showed me this, and honestly, I figured if God could find a verse in the bible that referenced design, he meant it! And he has blessed every moment I've spent with my art since!

Welcome! The thing I love about an online shop is that I can convey the feeling of a quaint vintage and specialty shop you’d find in a little country town, in any place you might be! From anywhere I might be! I hope that’s what you feel when you take a look around! The furnishings and accessories you’ll find at ‘ItTakesUnderstanding’ are vintage finds that have been given new life – sometimes through a coat of paint, sometimes through re-upholstery, sometimes it takes a complete re-build or re-purpose! Fabric and quilted items are all hand-made by me, generally machine stitched and made with cotton batting (where applicable), unless specified otherwise within the listing.

Small items will either be shipped via USPS or FedEx in most cases.

If express shipment is needed on a small item, please convo me and I will adjust the shipping price prior to purchase or create a separate listing to accommodate the additional shipping cost after purchase.

Larger items (furniture) are listed with the cost of Greyhound Package Express shipment. Greyhound does not ship door-to-door, but rather from terminal to terminal. I always suggest looking up your local Greyhound station (or convo me with your zip code and I will do so), to insure that you are comfortable with the location of the closest Greyhound station for pick-up. I list this shipment method as standard, because of the cost saving on the service, Greyhound Express is usually substantially cheaper than freight carriers.

If you would like the option of door-to-door delivery, please convo me with your zip code and I would be glad to get estimates for you!

All orders will be shipped to the address given on your ETSY account at check out unless the customer makes other arrangements prior to shipment.

I will do my best to facilitate your requests and make this process as seamless as possible, however, the customer will be responsible for return shipment costs. Items returned in their original condition will be refunded the full purchase amount, not including shipping/ freight charges.
This policy does not apply to custom orders. Custom order returns will be evaluated on an individual basis, due to the specific nature of these items.

*Note: This policy does not cover freight damage. Freight/ shipment issues will need to be dealt with in accordance with the carrier’s individual policies.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always excited to collaborate with customers on custom orders! They allow me to be creative, but also allow the you to get exactly what you're look for! If you have a design in mind or are looking for a piece for a specific place in your home, feel free to convo me with ideas and requests!
