About

Turning Old into New

I opened my shop in July of 2008, at the urging of a friend. I had been making cards for a couple of years at that point, mostly from magazines. Somewhere along the way, I started using vintage books and was taken with these old images. Most of these books were headed for the trash and I loved being able to cut them up and turn them into something beautiful. Over the years, my style and skill have evolved and improved. Many of my cards still reflect my quirky humor, although I can be serious at times. My cards are still original, one-of-a-kind creations. I have been tempted to make reprints for more mass selling, but have never done it. I feel that this is my trademark, that each card I make is a little helium balloon that I let go into the world.

In 2010, my husband and I had the idea to purchase a button machine, and the button side of Misplaced Talents was born. Buttons are fun to make and fun to wear, and they have been a successful asset to my shop.

At heart, though, I am a paper crafter. I love paper. If I had a chance at a second career, I think I'd get a business degree and open an amazing stationery store, one that would be so tantalizing, it would get the whole world writing letters again~!

    I am a full time long term care nurse. My family life is also very full, with 4 children and 3 grands. My shop is my creative outlet, where I can escape from the day-to-day and let my mind go. I love to dabble in vintage items especially.

Welcome to Misplaced Talents! We are a husband-wife team bringing you fun and unique buttons and paper goods. Everything is handmade by us, or occasionally one of our children.

Every card you see is handmade and one-of-a-kind. If you are interested in something custom, just ask. Dimensions of cards are listed.

All buttons you see are available as magnets, keychains, badge reels, and even wine charms. Just ask! Also, when placing your order feel free to mix and match or substitute, so long as it's the same type of item. For example, if you order a set of 6 buttons, its fine of you want to switch out 3 of them for some different buttons, but you can't switch 3 buttons for 3 magnets because of the cost difference.

We always take custom order requests and do offer wholesale pricing on buttons and magnets.

Shipping
We ship all merchandise by first class USPS. The packages tend to arrive quickly and with no problems. If you'd like to upgrade your shipping option just let us know. There is no express or tracking on international orders, and also no guarantee exactly when they will arrive. International customers are responsible for any customs or local taxes that may incur.

We are a home business and will ship your order out as quickly as life allows. Sometimes the merchandise is ready to ship and sometimes the product is made to order. Typically we ship out within 1-3 business days; sometimes the same day. I will mark your order "shipped" on the shop page when it has gone out. All orders are shipping from Virginia. If there is going to be a delay in your order, you will hear from us, and you'll probably get something free, too.
Refunds and Exchanges
We 100% guarantee your stuff. If the mailman crushes it or if you hate it, just let us know. Paper goods are usually one-of-a-kind items and cannot be exactly replaced, but if damaged you may choose a refund or another cool item. We strive to package items carefully and to date, have not had a single refund occur.

We want you to be pleased with our things and have a positive experience here on Etsy. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Melissa at mfschuppe [!at] gmail.com. This is a real email address which will be answered by a real person. Let us know how we're doing!
