Overspill's Shop Policies



This started out as destash - and grew! As such, I now buy from a wide variety of places - if you do not see exactly what you want, please contact me. I may well be able to find it.


Paypal is preferred. UK buyers may pay by personal cheque, but must wait for cheque clearance before shipping.

Please pay promptly. It makes life so much easier and stops the packing department (me) getting grumpy with the secretary (me) and then the boss (yeah, you guessed it) doesn't have to get involved.

If you are having problems with checkout, paypal or the universe in general, please let me know. If there is no payment and I don't hear from you at all, then I cancel in 3 days. If you are wandering, lost and bewildered within the checkout system, try here: for illumination.


I post Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Unless there is a problem with payment or with mismatched addresses, please take it as read that your order will be shipped on the next available posting day. I'm sorry, I'm not always able to notify customers individually.

To ensure prompt shipping, please complete checkout and ensure that your etsy and paypal addresses match up.

Small items are sent by 1st class mail or Standard Parcel mail (UK), as appropriate. International orders are dispatched via airmail. Larger items and custom items are sent by Recorded Delivery. If speed matters, please contact me for revised shipping costs via Special Delivery or Airsure.

For international (non-Europe) orders, buyer is responsible for any and all customs fees incurred.

PLEASE NOTE: There is NO tracking on international orders, unless specifically requested and paid for before dispatch.

Refunds and Exchanges

If, when you receive your goods, they are not as described, please contact me to arrange a return and refund.
If for any reason you are not happy, please contact me (I don’t bite!) so that we can work on a solution.
