Hello From St Louis, Missouri
As a child, my very creative Mom would teach us how to make stuff. She taught us how to embroider. We made paper mache out of cut-up newspapers with flour and water paste. I taught myself very basic crochet. In high school, I learned to sew in Home-Ec. I then began to make gifts for family and friends. I took classes to learn calligraphy and molded ceramics. I really wanted to have my own craft business, but the time wasn't right.
A few years ago I retired, and began to get back into my creative self. I realized that I could now have a craft business. That is when I heard about Etsy and opened Kitty Cat's Cupboard. The collector side of me needed to reduce my vast collections – you name it, I collected it. So Etsy is a perfect fit for both of my handmade and vintage personas.
I live in St Louis, Missouri, near Tower Grove Park - a Victorian walking park. Part of my daily routine is to go to the park with my security team. Here they hone their 'Squirrel Deterrent Tactics', which consists of a bunch of running around and barking. As you will see, we are pretty much squirrel-free here at Kitty Cat's Cupboard.

Frequently asked questions
Missouri residents will be charged sales tax of 8.679% on merchandise only.
Shipping Your Purchase
I normally ship Monday through Friday on a daily basis. Ready to ship items purchased before noon Central Time could be shipped the same day, if possible.
Excess Shipping Charges Refunded
The charge that I quote for shipping is my best estimate based on shipping from the Midwest to the West Coast. If you live closer to the Midwest, the actual shipping cost may not be as high as I quote. If the actual shipping charges are less than I charged you, I will gladly refund any excess of $1.50 or more.
When more than one item is purchased, if feasible your purchase will ship in one box. Many times this results in lower shipping costs. I will gladly refund any excess of $1.50 or more.

I reuse and recycle clean packing materials when appropriate.
If your item is damaged in transit, please contact me as soon as possible. Retain all packaging materials and the damaged item until the damage claim is complete. I will need photos of the packaging and damaged item for the insurance claim.
