A Useful and Eye-Catching Aesthetic Honed from Graphic Design: Reinvented for Fun!

After about 15 years as a professional graphic designer, I decided to renew myself as a sewist and put forth my long-applauded, life-long skills on a sewing machine (not to mention my knack for finding amazing fabrics) with this Etsy shop. It wasn't all in vain! Graphic design has taught me to value color, the simplicity of clean lines, and how to incorporate a boatload of practicality into what looks like an effortless, easy-on-the-eyes presentation. That, along with a penchant toward bohemian style and a life graced by Southern California, led me to "Locality." I love living la vie bohème, and want to create pieces that say it loud and proud! Please enjoy the shop, and always feel free to contact me with any comments. :) Cheers!

Returns and exchange details
As many of the items in my store are made-to-order or one-of-a-kind, please purchase with intent. With the revolving nature of my inventory, refunds and exchanges can be difficult. I prefer not to issue refunds or exchanges unless the item is clearly defective in some way, which of course I will want to remedy! I want my customers to be happy. If this is ever the case, please do not hesitate to contact me within 10 days of receipt of product and let me know the issue. I will work out a solution on a case-by-case basis. Thanks!
I am happy to accept payment via PayPal — which means you can securely pay with a credit or debit card even without a PayPal account. To do this, simply choose “Pay with Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT a PayPal Account” when you checkout with the PayPal option. Or, if you have a PayPal account, simply log in with your existing account information when prompted. Feel free to message me if you have any difficulties with checkout.

Please note that to avoid complications for both you and I, I will not proceed with or ship orders until the payment has cleared. I will contact you as soon as possible, should there be an issue with your payment. Thank you!
Packaging: I am proud of my products, and therefore, their packaging! I ensure that every parcel that goes out is received as if it’s a gift, specially packaged for the full “opening” experience — whether it’s for you or your giftee. I wrap my larger items in tissue sealed with a label to both protect them and to work as giftwrap, and each item has a hand-stamped Locality tag. Smaller items (such as jewelry) are packaged in a small logo gift box with protective (and festive!) paper shreds and finished with a raffia tie. I do keep packaging to a minimum when possible, to keep both packaging waste and shipping cost to a minimum, and my packaging materials are either recycled or recyclable.

Gifts: I am more than happy to include a free printed notecard to your recipient that coordinates with the packaging! Please just type the message you'd like in a note to me when you place your order. (Please keep the message short and sweet—the card is business-card sized).

Shipping Method: By default, I ship via economical USPS First Class Mail for Domestic and International addresses, which typically takes about 2-5 days to arrive (domestic) after production time. If you need a piece to arrive sooner, please message me and I’ll be happy to work something out. Priority Mail is always an option, which arrives in 1-3 days for a slightly higher rate. I will always send an email confirming that your order has shipped, and there will be a tracking number included for your convenience.

Shipping Address: Please note that if your shipping address is flagged that it does not match your PayPal account address, I will always ship to the address given during your Etsy checkout.

International: Shipments sent overseas could expect an additional customs delay of up to 6 weeks. It rarely happens, and it is outside my control, but please be aware of this.
Additional policies and FAQs
Turnaround Time: I have estimated 1-3 business days for most made-to-order pieces, but this could vary slightly depending on my load. I fulfill orders in a first-come, first-served order, while also making accommodations for customers who pay for expedited shipping. I know time-sensitive things come up such as birthdays or events, and I encourage you to go ahead and message me if this is ever the case. I will do everything humanly possible to get your product delivered when you need it.

Custom Orders: I would be delighted to work with you, should you have an idea for a custom piece! Have a certain fabric in mind for one of my items? Color? I can also transform my designs into matching bridesmaid/groomsmen gifts, or customize for a particular need (like a bag for special product packaging, or earrings in certain team colors for an event).
I personally do not and will not ever sell or share your information with any other entities. I respect every person’s information privacy!
