What has KolibriKado in store for you?

As so many Etsians I like colours, and I like them all. So I collect beads, buttons, trim, paper, yarn, fabric and what not, all in bright colours and with great designs. I like to linger in thriftstores and charityshops, at fleemarkets and carbootsales. Wherever I am, in Amsterdam or abroad, dusty little shops with forgotten treasures are just heaven to me. And once I have taken my found treasures home, the best bit is gazing in delight at these great finds. As you might have noticed by now, I do have a soft spot for vintage and pre-loved wonders.

But I also like to make things, be a little bit creative. So I like making jewelry and drawing small characters like my little SadCat. Besides the smell of an apple pie, the smell of a freshly sharpened pencil is the best smell ever.

So now you understand: this combination of the love of vintage and handmade adds up to a little colourful Etsy shop called KolibriKado. By the way in Dutch 'Kolibri' means hummingbird and 'Kado' means present or gift.

The items I offer you at KolibriKado are all items I like. I hope you like them too. I will wrapp each item with love and care, before sending it to you.

♥ KolibriKado = 'Gift of the hummingbird' in Dutch.
The hummingbird is the smallest, most colorful and by far the most beautiful bird I have ever seen. And every time I see something colorful and pretty I can’t wait to get started on my own creations.

♥ I live in a smokefree and petfree home.

♥ All earringhooks and wires are lead and nickle free.

Accepted payment methods

♥ I accept PayPal payment only and and therefore payment has to be made at the time of purchase. I'll keep your order for three days but if I haven’t received the payment within three days, I cancel your order and put the item back in sale.

♥ You can also pay with a credit card via PayPal without a PayPal account. Please read this instruction: http://www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/how-to-pay-with-a-credit-card-and-create-a-paypal-account-746/

♥ Please note that I ship to your Etsy address, unless otherwise specified by you.

♥ And if you shop local: welkom bij KolibriKado! Zie je iets leuks maar wil je liever niet via PayPal in US Dollars betalen? Stuur me dan een berichtje via Contact en ik laat je weten hoe de procedure via mijn bankrekening verloopt.
♥ I ship within 1 or 2 working days of receiving payment.

♥ I'll make sure that your purchage is carefully handled and packaged before mailing out. If I can I will recycle and reuse materials to package your purchase.

♥ I'll wrap every handmade item as a gift , free of charge.

♥ I ship via standard (international) mail by TNT Post. That means that there is no tracking information or insurance. If you want tracking info, let me know and I'll ship Priority, which of course is more expensive.

♥ I live in the Netherlands so shipping to the USA can take around 1-2 weeks. Shipping to European countries takes 3-5 days. Please note that due to custom's inspections and processing, it may take 4-6 weeks for international packages to reach their destination.

♥ I do not take any responsibility for damaged, lost or stolen goods. International customers are responsible for all charges, taxes, and duties associated with shipping to their respective countries.
Refunds and Exchanges
♥ I don't do any refunds. I provide an honest and accurate description and carefully inspect each item before I ship it to you. If you have any questions about an item please ask me before you order, I want you to be happy with your purchase!
Additional policies and FAQs
♥ Feedback is very important to me, so I like to know if your package has arrived safely and...most important... that you are happy with your purchase.

♥ If you are not happy with your purchase or service for any reason, please let me know and I'll try to work it out with you.

♥ Please note that although you handle your jewelry with care (don't shower with it, don't sleep with it, watch out with the use of perfume), it just might happen that in time silver and goldplated items show a discoloration.
This has to do with the skin acidity but I'm convinced that it will not affect the joy of wearing.

♥♥♥ thank you for visiting KolibriKado ♥♥♥
