handmade with love..............................

Growing up as the oldest of 11 brothers & sisters, creativity & thriftiness were two main ingredients in our house. My father the bread winner of the home and could stretch a dollar as far as it could possible go. I remember growing up going to garage sales, flea markets & antique stores.

One item I remember very clearly was in an antique store we stopped at while on vacation. There was a small dainty ring made of a woman's hair. The shop owner told us that back during the Revolutionary War the women would weave a lock of their hair into a ring to give the soldier they love as a fair well gift.

I remember thinking how beautiful & special that ring was , and how much love was intertwined within the lock of her hair. I discovered the true beauty of handmade that day.

I have been creating & discovering since I was a 12 year old little girl wondering around that that antique shop. Looking at all the precious items & the stories they told.

To me handmade is much more than merely the name....its a passion, a desire, a life, a love, a piece of the creator.

I have had the pleasure of sharing my items around the world beginning with my home town & traveling as far as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, Spain, Romania and more.

Unfortunately we cannot issue refunds for postage costs for delayed delivery or misrouted or lost packages as a result of a failure on the part of the USPS.

~Terms & Conditions~

We ship all orders to the "SHIP TO" address listed on buyer's Etsy invoice. Once the package is dropped off at the post office, it is not possible to recall the package or re-route it to a different address. It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that the shipping address listed in Etsy is correct. We cannot refund or replace packages that are sent to an address that a buyer has entered by mistake.
In the event that the packaged is returned by the USPS the buyer can have the package re-shipped at their expense. Once the additional shipping costs are purchased by the buyer.

~ Domestic ( USA) Orders~

All US orders are shipped via first class mail, which arrives to most destinations in 3-6 business days. Packages that are sent by priority mail, which is supposed to arrive to most destinations in 2-3 business days but may take 5 days or longer. PLEASE NOTE that we CANNOT GUARANTEE delivery of a package in a specific timeframe. The US Postal Service is responsible for delivering your package on time, and we cannot control or influence their delivery schedule. Even guaranteed express overnight delivery packages have NOT gaurented by papirvendage.

~ Lost Packages ~

If you do not receive your package in the timeframe you expect, please check the tracking of your package using the delivery confirmation number. If the tracking of the package indicates that the package is lost, please contact me to discuss the options for replacing your package. The USPS requires that you wait at least 21 days from the date that the package was shipped before filing a claim to receive a refund for a lost package.

Unfortunately, we cannot replace or refund an order if the tracking shows that the package was delivered. If you did not receive the package, check with your local post office for help in determining the location of the package.

~ International Orders~

International orders may be subject to import duties and taxes, which vary widely by country. The buyer is responsible for these fees. Please note that in some countries, these fees may be equal to or more than the cost of the original package. Please check with your local post office regarding import duties and taxes prior to placing a large order.

VERY IMPORTANT!!! Delivery by first class mail to most foreign countries takes approximately 3 weeks and may take up to 7 weeks for some countries. See the bottom of this page for approximate delivery times by country.

During the busy holiday season, expect shipping to take at least an additional 1-2 weeks (or longer!) to be delivered. Please plan accordingly when ordering items for the holiday season.

Delivery by priority international mail is expected (but not guaranteed) in 6-10 business days. It is not uncommon for the delivery to be substantially delayed by a country's customs office while processing a duty/import tax.

~ Tracking International Packages ~

All packages are sent with a tracking/customs number. This number can be used to track the package while it is in the US, but for most countries it is NOT POSSIBLE TO TRACK THE PACKAGE ONCE IT LEAVE THE UNITED STATES if it is shipped by first class or priority international mail.

Lost Packages:
The USPS does not provide refunds for lost packages that were sent by first class international mail. Unless you live in one of the few select countries that now offers tracking for first class packages, I cannot offer any refunds or replacement packages because it is not possible to determine the whereabouts of the package.
