Hello! Thank you so much for swinging by my storefront Kiss of Venus. I recently graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I studied Classics with a Language and Literature emphasis, a niche which was both enthralling and inspiring to me. I have been 'creating' my whole life long, though Etsy is the first place where I have sold my pieces.

My work is very much a beneficial creative outlet. For this reason, I like to keep my prices lower than most. The beauty of creation is a mutual exchange, and I dislike the idea of anyone shying away from genuine inspiration because of a price tag.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
My cancellation policy is very lenient, if you for any reason dissatisfied with your purchase please let me know and a refund will be issued (minus the cost of shipping).
Payment
I currently accept Paypal and direct deposits via credit card. However, if you wish to pay with a personal check, provisions can be made for this alternative form of transaction. If you wish to do so, all checks are to be addressed to Maressa Garner and sent to my home address (available upon request). Once your check goes through, I will send your item(s) with all due speed!

Update: I will gladly hold items on reserve for two weeks. This is now the maximum length of time I am willing to hold something, as several recent experiences have warranted such a policy.
Shipping
All purchases are sent using USPS ground service. I will ship your purchase without fail within three days, as I am always quite excited that someone takes a liking to my work, and I appreciate the same kind of service in sellers. I do not use tracking, insurance, or delivery confirmation (unless your purchase is greater than $50, in which case delivery confirmation will be applied), however if you desire any of these services, amenities can of course be made. This applies to buyers within the US and internationally.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always open for customs orders of all shapes and sizes! If you have any questions as to my methods, materials, or other, please do not hesitate to inquire.
