About PortalsMagicCloset

Sales 745
On Etsy since 2013

Finding unique, beautiful, fun, and awesome pieces for your enjoyment; that is my passion.

Everything that touches our lives, be it jewelry, clothing, home décor even the simplest pieces we use every day and take for granted began their life with an artist that designed them. My passion is finding unique and wonderful pieces that we can love but also celebrate the artist that brought them to life for our enjoyment.

Different periods had styles that were distinctive to them but in the end they were all a vision of the artists that designed them and brought them to life to be enjoyed and hopefully handed down to generations to come.

For my jewelry, I am a contributing member of The Silver Forum and bring many of my pieces before them for discussion and to aid in my research. I strive to find unique or rare pieces, not mass produced where you see them all over the internet.

Every piece is researched. Sometimes there is little to go by so I look for rarity, other times I find hallmarks and other identifying marks that are re-searchable. This is time consuming but that is my other passion. Being able to pass on the history of a piece, who made it, where it was made anything I can find. To me, knowing this makes those pieces special by having that connection.

I have another shop on Etsy that opened in July 2012 called Portals From The Past. Between these two shops I have wonderful customers in 42 states so far and 14 countries, the farthest away is Malaysia as well as an overseas US Military Base. I enjoy my interactions with all of them.

So enjoy your visit to my shop, ask questions and hopefully you will find something you love.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

Most jewelry and small accessories are sent in a white jewelry gift box with ribbon & bow and are ready for gifting. Some come in specialized boxes. Custom gift wrapping can be purchased at checkout. Just pick the paper/bow combination you like and send me a message on that page with your choice and what you would like the gift tag to say.

What you should do before you purchase

• Fully read the description of the articles for purchase. If there are any defects I will point them out.
• View all of the pictures. Pictures are enlarged to show details. Please be sure to read the descriptions for the actual measurements and weights.
• If you have any questions contact me before purchase

Do you accept “Best Offers “

• Occasionally I will negotiate the price or accept a best offer that is reasonable. I usually only do this for item NOT already on sale.

Do you offer layaways and how does this work?

• Yes but only to spread the payments over a 2 month period and the first payment is due immediately. $20USD of this payment is non-refundable if you do not complete your payment agreement and ask that the order be cancelled.
• Payments can be monthly, weekly or semimonthly.
• First I put a Reserve on the listing and then change the price and description to reflect that this is the first payment for this item. You will then add this to your cart and pay for it.
• I will then do another listing that reflects you next payment.
• After each payment I will list the next one.
• I will send you a notice a couple days before each payment is due

How can I get my country included in your shipping profiles?

From the page of the item you want click on "Ask a Question" Tell me the country you live in and your postal code. I will calculate what the shipping will be and send you a response. If you wish to still purchase the item I will add it to my places I ship to and tell you when it is done.

What do I do if my purchase is lost or arrives damaged?

All USA purchases are sent insured for the full value that you paid. If it arrives damaged be sure to.
1. Save the box and all packaging material.
2. Contact me as soon as possible so I can explain the process of filing a claim.
3. If you think it might be lost
A. Contact me as soon as possible. I will track the package and let you know the status. You can track it yourself if you wish to but I am more than willing to do this for you.
B. If lost I will file the claim for you. This is a long process though but I will explain all the steps and keep you informed.
