Resin Bangle Crazy!

Back in the 80's, I found a set of 4 flourescent, chunky, lucite bangles at the Kane County Flea Market here in Illinois. They were so cool but you know as time goes by, we loose things or throw them away. We don't know the value of items until they are gone.

Just recently back in 2009, I wanted to see if I could find similar bangles on-line on e-bay. I never found them but what I did find was a new obsession with vintage bangles and eventually found my way to Etsy. What a fantastic site for lovers of all things vintage and crafty!

In the 90's I had dabbled in resin and polyurethane mold making. I wanted to go work for Hallmark or something like that and create all those figurines. My dreams of working for Hallmark never materialized but I didn't realize at the time that I was building mold making skills to be used later in life.

In 2009, I realized that if I wanted those vintage 80's bangles, I would have to create them myself. And that's what I did. Pretty soon, I was making so many bangles that they were taking over the house. That's how my store began. Now I'm obsessed with making bangles and can't seem to stop! I really hope you enjoy my store. It's a pleasure having you here.

PayPal really is the best as it’s fast, easy & secure, plus they accept every major credit card and it’s so easy to set up an account. I will also gladly accept money orders.

Items will be shipped immediately after payment is received in my Paypal account. Please try to make your payments within 3 days of purchase. If you need more time, please let me know. I am happy to wait if I know you are working it out.

If there are any problems with your transaction or payment or you simply change your mind, please let me know immediately. Feel free to convo me. I’m very understanding and ready to work with you if you just let me know as soon as possible. I will have to cancel a sale after three days of non-payment if no contact has been made but I will give fair warning just to make sure there's no misunderstanding.
All items are ready to ship when you place your order. Custom orders may take about 2 – 4 weeks to put together so I appreciate your understanding.

I will ship your order within two business days after I receive payment in my Paypal account, but I will make every effort to ship more quickly than that. I do work a full time job as well as run my Etsy shop so I will try my best. I want you to be delighted with your purchase and receive your items in a timely manner.

All items that are being shipped in the United States are shipped USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation. I like to know that your order made it to your hands.

I can ship USPS Priority Mail with delivery tracking confirmation but it’s a bit expensive so generally all international orders are shipped USPS First Class. It does not have a tracking number and usually takes 4 – 6 weeks. Sometimes your item will arrive in more like 7 – 14 days. If you prefer Priority mail please let me know in notes to seller. This service is more costly and prices usually start at around $21 but your item will arrive in 6 – 10 business days with a tracking number.

International buyers are responsible for all taxes, fees, duties, etc. that might occur upon arrival.

Please make sure address details are correct at the time of purchase or let me know if I need to ship to a different address other than what is listed in your Etsy account. All orders are sent to the Etsy account address unless you specify. You can always include notes to the seller during check out so I will know what to do.

Every order includes a packing slip/invoice of the items you purchased.

If your item is a gift, please let me know in the notes to seller during check out so I will know to not include the packing slip/invoice in your shipment. If you are sending a gift and would like a note enclosed or gift wrapped, I will be more than happy to do that. It’s totally free of charge as a special service to my customers. Please include the info in the notes to seller during check out. I’d like to know specifically if the gift is for a man, woman, child or teen and their personal style such as retro, cutesy, sophisticated, colorful so I can tailor their gift wrap to match their style and taste.

All items are packaged very carefully to insure that your purchase arrives safety to your hands.

Please Note: Sadly, I cannot accept responsibility for any items that are lost during shipping, however, I want you to be 100% completely satisfied with your shopping experience here at my Etsy Shop so we will find a way to resolve any issues that might arise.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase. If there’s ever a problem, feel free to convo me and I’ll be happy to make things right.
Additional policies and FAQs
Of course! Please convo me. I can hold your items for 3 days. If you need longer – just simply let me know.

I do accept custom orders. Please allow 2 - 4 weeks for finishing of custom orders. I will list the item “reserved” specifically for you and you can decide if you like them and want to purchase them.

Currently not available at this time. Maybe in the future.
