Very many thanks for the pattern and the lace you sent. It arrived really quickly, but unfortunately I couldn't leave a review until later. I really appreciate the very quick shipping and the lovely note, thanks again, Lisa

About

Once Lost ~ Now Found

I come by it honestly. Strong coffee and DIY. Mom was always bringing home what other people threw away. She could make anything beautiful again. Dad was a builder. He taught me to love tools and not be afraid to try. My own Handsome Prince and I have been known to dig through dumpsters and bring home curbside finds.

I've got taste bigger than my wallet, so I work with what I have. Or what I find. I take old, discarded stuff, and I make it into something better. (Or I totally fail, and it's pretty funny.) And that's really my story- once utterly lost, but now found and remade. Making is my favorite way of connecting with my Creator. It's like breathing for me: automatic, necessary, and sometimes it really stinks. (Let's be honest.)

Each of our dogs were rescues, and they inspire much of my work. Some of my favorite people have amazing stories of redemption. And my favorite supplies to work with are those destined for the dump or fire pit. Each piece I create serves as a testament to the beauty of imperfection. Every soul- blemishes and all, has value.

I blog about my finds and their stories at lostuponatime.com. I'd love to see you there! I'm also on Instagram: @lost_upon_a_time.

Shop members

  • Kenya Sue

    Chief Hairshedder, Lead Food Thief

    Kenya's rescue is a dramatic one. She's a survivor. She's head strong, bossy, and persistent. She sniffs everything- no crotch is safe. Despite her independent nature, she follows me from room to room; always by my side.

  • Vago

    Head Of Vacuum Defense, Belly Rub Initiator

    Vago is a rescue dog. He loves carrots and squirrel chasing, and the sound of the chop saw. His bark knows no volume control. Even if it's 2 am & he needs to go outside; & he's 2 inches from your head. He's curious, forgiving, and a bed hog.

  • Mickelle

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    Artist and musician; I'm a born maker. Combining bits and pieces with some handwork to form something beautiful and usable... that's my gig. I keep both Ella Fitzgerald and Skillet on my playlist, and I take my coffee with honey and heavy cream.

Well, hello there! Thanks for popping in. I hope to have answered your questions here. If there's anything I've left out, please convo me. My goal is to make your purchase a good experience for us both.

My handmade pieces are individually made, with mostly reclaimed materials. Each item is unique. There are imperfections, as most materials have had a previous life and show wear. I do my best to show what those idiosyncrasies are. For this reason, I’ll accept returns only if I’ve grossly misrepresented the item.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
You'll have 14 days from the date you receive your order to request a refund or exchange. This does not apply to custom orders, however. For custom orders, see below. For buyers in the EU, refunds will include initial shipping charges.

Generally, refunds are issued for items that have been grossly misrepresented in the listing. Minor variations in color are not considered gross misrepresentation. Each piece is handmade. As such, there are slight differences that make each item unique. Lost Upon A Time accepts returns for custom orders only if the item was grossly misrepresented.

If your merchandise arrives defective, or otherwise different from what you expected, for goodness sake- let me know! I want you to be happy with your purchase. I'll do everything I can to make it right, including replacement of your item, or full or partial refund.

If you find your piece is not as described, or was damaged during shipping, please notify me via convo or e-mail within 7 business days of receipt. After returning the item, at no cost to you, you'll have the choice of a full refund or a replacement piece.
Payment
Payment is expected immediately and in full, at the time you place your order. If you've got a special situation, convo me. We may be able to work something out.
Shipping
Both USPS and FedEx shipping are available. However, I can only list one option in my etsy listings. Therefore, although USPS is available by default, I'm happy to give US residents a quote on FedEx delivery. They can be a much cheaper option for those in the states. If you have a specific preference, just let me know.

•All orders will be shipped to buyer’s Etsy shipping address, unless buyer tells me otherwise.

•Shipping insurance is required for all handmade items. This protects both of us, should your item incur any damage in transit.

•Included in shipping fees are the costs for packaging materials.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS

International orders are welcomed! Thank you! I generally ship via USPS for international orders, as they do not charge high brokerage fees- and therefore save you money.

Please note I cannot mark the customs form as "gift" and am not responsible for any customs fees upon delivery. I cannot be responsible if customs confiscates your item.
Additional policies and FAQs
Any questions? Feel free to convo me, and let me know what you need.

Please know that I will only use your information for communication regarding your order, and on future sales, coupons, etc. I will not sell your information, or add you to Lost Upon A Time's e-mail update list, unless you specifically request that I do. If you prefer to receive no further communication from Lost Upon A time after you've received your order, please let me know.
