Mortgage Banker Grateful for Cloud with Silver Lining

I feel a kindred spirit with many Etsy shop owners who want to be their own boss and quit their corporate jobs. Only it wasn't my choice in Jan '08 when I was laid off with 648 others in a conference call from the huge Wall Street firm that was "Too Big to Fail". Um, yeah, right...

We all know the story. As a middle-aged woman, with skills primarily in one area of business, I was a castoff, a throwaway...Interviews were dreary and hopeless. I was over-qualified. "You'll leave as soon as things pick up again." Whatever!

I had been frugal with my income and started going to estate sales to look for treasures I could turn for a profit. I started to get to know the "regulars" in line and the owners of the estate sale businesses. I even started working for a few of them. Some had gotten their start in the same way I had, from needing to change their income source. I eventually opened my own brick and mortar store that did very well but a family illness forced me to close it. I sell online and at street fairs and I couldn't be happier as I live my life every day as "I" want to live it.

    After spending 28 years in the lending business, I can now spend time in a beautiful area of the country (Sunny Southern California) pursuing what I love - picking things that make people happy. I am lucky to have a supportive husband at my side!

Welcome to Lisa's Cottage! I pride myself in having happy customers who return over and over. Please convo me with ANY questions you have on an item and I will try to respond very promptly!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
I take accurate and well-lit pictures and try my best to describe and list any flaws, details, etc. that you need to know to make an informed purchase. However, I will refund your money (minus shipping costs) if you are not happy with your item. I will expect to receive it within 7 days and in the same condition as you received it in.

I will not be responsible for any damage caused by the shipper. I recommend you purchase insurance for your higher priced items for peace of mind.
I accept Paypal and need to receive confirmation of payment within 1 day. You are responsible for any insurance. (It would be included up to $100 on UPS shipped items which I use on heavier purchases but if it is USPS, then insurance (up to $50) is only included if I ship it via Priority Mail. Otherwise, Buyer will pay optional insurance.) Payment is expected within 24 hours or I will re-list the item.

I also accept credit cards through Direct Checkout. All the above policies apply.
I will ship to the confirmed address on Paypal (PLEASE be sure it is correct) or the address specified with the inclusion of the money order. If your package is returned as undeliverable, you will be responsible for the cost to re-send to the correct address.

All items will be shipped priority mail unless they can fit (and qualify) under the Media Mail rates or if Parcel Post is the cheaper route, I will use it. If I am able to ship at a better cost, I will refund the difference less any costs incurred for bubble wrap, special packaging or other supplies. I won't make money on shipping nor will I absorb the extra costs associated with it. If the distance to you or the requests you make for packaging (extra bubble wrap, etc.) create a higher shipping cost, I will need the remaining funds sent before I can ship it.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you want insurance, please convo me.

Please inspect your item/items as soon as you receive it. All damage claims must be made within 5 days of receiving packages.

If an item is broken, please do not discard the box or product, and contact me either through convo or at lisascottage (at)

I can reserve an item out of "active" listings for 48 hours. Longer times may be possible at my discretion but certain items are tailored for the current season and therefore cannot be held outside this timeframe.
