Please note that I am processing things in the order they were received. THANK YOU all so much for your patience! I am also behind on some of my messages and refunds. Please know that I'm working to get caught up on everything as quickly as I can. Many thanks to those of you that have expressed encouraging words, offered prayers, and shown support. Please do keep the people of our town and state in your prayers because it will be a very long time before we will be able to return to normal.

Well, things have been happening here in my corner of the world that require a bit of an explanation. Some orders placed in the past few weeks are in the process of being created and readied for shipment. The town where I live has suffered a catastrophic flood in which over 90% of the homes here have been affected. My home was one of the few that did not flood. My family and I are currently housing a family we know that lost their home as well as moving my mother-in-law in because her apartment also flooded. It's been a whole lot of crazy. We have been spending long days trying to help friends and neighbors that have lost everything. There aren't enough "helpers" to go around because the devastation is so great. Nearly everyone I know has either lost their home, their job, or both. Whole neighborhoods across multiple parishes (counties) have all suffered great losses. Businesses, schools - everything. For this reason I have not been able to ship out orders as quickly as I would like to (our Post Office also flooded). I am hoping to get back to work within in the next few days. My work area in my home has been turned into sleeping areas for some of the people that are now living with us. I am trying to get set up in another locations so that I can once again work. I thank you for your patience. If for some reason the delay is of a major inconvenience to you please let me know and I will be happy to give you a refund. We were without internet service for over a week and I have had a difficult time trying to get this information out to my customers. Cell phone service has been and still is a hit or miss......mostly miss. The flooding started with a flash flood that came from out of nowhere and flooded areas that have NEVER flooded before. That flood came as close as 2 houses away from me. The next day the river in our town started to flood and broke all known records in the process. Again, areas that have never had any issues with flooded were suddenly and swiftly under water. Many, many people had to be rescued by boat, including my mother-in-law who was living in an assisted living facility. We really had no warning that the water would come on us so quickly or to the extent that it did. Most of the population does not have flood insurance because it was not required. Now, without insurance many people are facing some very grim options as far as how to move forward with their lives. FEMA offers some help, but it isn't nearly enough. Flood waters are contaminated with bacteria, sewage, and goodness knows what else. It's a major health hazard. Furniture ends up being tossed in a trash heap along with everything else that you own. It's a sight that's difficult to describe. Whole neighborhoods, one house after the other, dumping all of their furniture, appliances, sheet-rock, insulation - everything - into a huge pile on the curb. The smell is beyond description. This is repeated over and over again in every direction you look. Every part of town, on every street.

Some of you know that my plans a few weeks ago was to shut my Etsy shop in order to pursue other interests. The flood has changed that. I was actually in the process of opening a local brick and mortar art co-op with an artist friend. Unfortunately, the building we were moving into took on 2.5 feet of water and will need to be gutted and rebuilt. That being said, for the moment, I will keep my Etsy shop open as there aren't any other options available here anymore. Both of my collage age sons have lost their jobs because the building where they worked had over 6 ft. of water in it. So many people have lost not only their homes but their livelihoods. Again, thank you so much for having patience with me. If you are the praying type we certainly can use your prayers at the moment!

For over a week we were unable to access news networks, so we had no idea if the rest of the world knew what was happening here. As we have found out, the major news networks have barely mentioned the full scope of the devastation. FOX News is the ONLY network to actually come here and walk through our streets to show the truth of whats happening here. If you want to know the truth I'd go there first because you won't get a lot of accurate information anywhere else.
If you'd like a look at what happened here this is a good place to start:

------------------------------------------------------------
PLEASE Read the following information as it will probably answer most of your questions. You can also refer to our SHOP POLICIES for more info: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PowderPuffEmporium/policy?ref=shopinfo_policies_leftnav
If you still have questions just send me a message and I'll do my best to help you!
It is BEST to converse with me here on Etsy. I will see and answer your message faster than if you send me an email.

► ALL of our powder is measured by net weight (actual product weight not including the container/packaging). Volume capacity of the containers (particularly shaker bottles) is NOT the same as net. wt. (both provided in ounces so you can compare).

► ALL Powder Containers (jars, bowls, boxes,etc.) come with a powder sifter insert! Please note that the sifters are offered as a convenience to make powdering a little easier, BUT they do not fit "tightly" in all of the containers I offer as you might expect to find with traditional commercial powder boxes. The containers I sell with my powder puffs are purchased from various suppliers WITHOUT a sifter as most of the containers are not necessarily intended to be used just for dusting powders. The inserts I have available come in 3 sizes and will not fit "snugly" in all of the dishes. The sizes are as follows: 4.25", 3", 2.5". Depending on the container you order I will send you a sifter that will fit that container best. The insert will sit on top of the powder in the container and allow you to pick up a smaller amount of powder with your puff at a time as well as it being a nice "divider" between the powder and puff when not in use. If a "snug fitting" sifter is what you prefer I do apologize in advance as that is not available as an option at the moment. :>(

► I DO NOT CHOOSE POWDER FRAGRANCES FOR YOU! If you want your powder to be scented YOU must make that selection and then let me know what you want. If you select "scented" powder but don't include your fragrance choice I WILL SHIP YOUR POWDER TO YOU UNSCENTED! It isn't possible for me to contact you after your purchase is made to find out what you prefer. If you don't list a fragrance selection I WILL SHIP UNSCENTED powder. IF you forget to add in to the "message to seller" area during checkout just send me a message via Etsy conversations. DO NOT SEND an email as I will probably not see it in time. Please ask if you have questions.
► Currently I am not shipping outside the US. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Well, things have been happening here in my corner of the world that require a bit of an explanation. Some orders placed in the past few weeks are in the process of being created and readied for shipment. The town where I live has suffered a catastrophic flood in which over 90% of the homes here have been affected. My home was one of the few that did not flood. My family and I are currently housing a family we know that lost their home as well as moving my mother-in-law in because her apartment also flooded. It's been a whole lot of crazy. We have been spending long days trying to help friends and neighbors that have lost everything. There aren't enough "helpers" to go around because the devastation is so great. Nearly everyone I know has either lost their home, their job, or both. Whole neighborhoods across multiple parishes (counties) have all suffered great losses. Businesses, schools - everything. For this reason I have not been able to ship out orders as quickly as I would like to (our Post Office also flooded). I am hoping to get back to work within in the next few days. My work area in my home has been turned into sleeping areas for some of the people that are now living with us. I am trying to get set up in another locations so that I can once again work. I thank you for your patience. If for some reason the delay is of a major inconvenience to you please let me know and I will be happy to give you a refund. We were without internet service for over a week and I have had a difficult time trying to get this information out to my customers. Cell phone service has been and still is a hit or miss......mostly miss. The flooding started with a flash flood that came from out of nowhere and flooded areas that have NEVER flooded before. That flood came as close as 2 houses away from me. The next day the river in our town started to flood and broke all known records in the process. Again, areas that have never had any issues with flooded were suddenly and swiftly under water. Many, many people had to be rescued by boat, including my mother-in-law who was living in an assisted living facility. We really had no warning that the water would come on us so quickly or to the extent that it did. Most of the population does not have flood insurance because it was not required. Now, without insurance many people are facing some very grim options as far as how to move forward with their lives. FEMA offers some help, but it isn't nearly enough. Flood waters are contaminated with bacteria, sewage, and goodness knows what else. It's a major health hazard. Furniture ends up being tossed in a trash heap along with everything else that you own. It's a sight that's difficult to describe. Whole neighborhoods, one house after the other, dumping all of their furniture, appliances, sheet-rock, insulation - everything - into a huge pile on the curb. The smell is beyond description. This is repeated over and over again in every direction you look. Every part of town, on every street.

Some of you know that my plans a few weeks ago was to shut my Etsy shop in order to pursue other interests. The flood has changed that. I was actually in the process of opening a local brick and mortar art co-op with an artist friend. Unfortunately, the building we were moving into took on 2.5 feet of water and will need to be gutted and rebuilt. That being said, for the moment, I will keep my Etsy shop open as there aren't any other options available here anymore. Both of my collage age sons have lost their jobs because the building where they worked had over 6 ft. of water in it. So many people have lost not only their homes but their livelihoods. Again, thank you so much for having patience with me. If you are the praying type we certainly can use your prayers at the moment!

For over a week we were unable to access news networks, so we had no idea if the rest of the world knew what was happening here. As we have found out, the major news networks have barely mentioned the full scope of the devastation. FOX News is the ONLY network to actually come here and walk through our streets to show the truth of whats happening here. If you want to know the truth I'd go there first because you won't get a lot of accurate information anywhere else.
If you'd like a look at what happened here this is a good place to start:

------------------------------------------------------------
PLEASE Read the following information as it will probably answer most of your questions. You can also refer to our SHOP POLICIES for more info: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PowderPuffEmporium/policy?ref=shopinfo_policies_leftnav
If you still have questions just send me a message and I'll do my best to help you!
It is BEST to converse with me here on Etsy. I will see and answer your message faster than if you send me an email.

► ALL of our powder is measured by net weight (actual product weight not including the container/packaging). Volume capacity of the containers (particularly shaker bottles) is NOT the same as net. wt. (both provided in ounces so you can compare).

► ALL Powder Containers (jars, bowls, boxes,etc.) come with a powder sifter insert! Please note that the sifters are offered as a convenience to make powdering a little easier, BUT they do not fit "tightly" in all of the containers I offer as you might expect to find with traditional commercial powder boxes. The containers I sell with my powder puffs are purchased from various suppliers WITHOUT a sifter as most of the containers are not necessarily intended to be used just for dusting powders. The inserts I have available come in 3 sizes and will not fit "snugly" in all of the dishes. The sizes are as follows: 4.25", 3", 2.5". Depending on the container you order I will send you a sifter that will fit that container best. The insert will sit on top of the powder in the container and allow you to pick up a smaller amount of powder with your puff at a time as well as it being a nice "divider" between the powder and puff when not in use. If a "snug fitting" sifter is what you prefer I do apologize in advance as that is not available as an option at the moment. :>(

► I DO NOT CHOOSE POWDER FRAGRANCES FOR YOU! If you want your powder to be scented YOU must make that selection and then let me know what you want. If you select "scented" powder but don't include your fragrance choice I WILL SHIP YOUR POWDER TO YOU UNSCENTED! It isn't possible for me to contact you after your purchase is made to find out what you prefer. If you don't list a fragrance selection I WILL SHIP UNSCENTED powder. IF you forget to add in to the "message to seller" area during checkout just send me a message via Etsy conversations. DO NOT SEND an email as I will probably not see it in time. Please ask if you have questions.
► Currently I am not shipping outside the US. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Just opened my order! I love it - beautifully packaged - felt like I was getting an elegant gift I just happened to buy for myself. The powder (I picked Pure Grace) is awesome and silky - I am in dusting heaven - so many good memories of wafting powder when I was little!

About

Happily Handmade

My mother started teaching me to sew when I was 6 years old. It stuck with me. I love sewing, and I love textiles! My studio is filled with all of the things that inspire me, and my sketchbooks is filled with all of the things I want to make.

I started making powder puffs over 8 years ago. I love the vintage styling and history behind how and why they were used in the past. Modern versions almost always give a nod to the designs of the past.

"Handcrafted" to me is personal thing - whether it's something I made, or something I bought that someone else made. Handmade items are expressions of the person doing the crafting.....who they are, what they love, what they value. That's what sets it apart from the other stuff (mass produced/imported)!

I fill my days with sewing and weaving, and it isn't unusual for me to wake up in the middle of the night to add something to my sketchbook!

Thanks for visiting!

    Mother insisted I learned to sew at age six. At the time I thought she was just being mean. I wish she were still here so I could tell her "thank you". Such a gift she gave me! Daily I find joy in making something with my own hands. Gratitude.

If you have concerns that scented powder may cause you skin issues (rash, itching, etc.) we HIGHLY recommend that you purchase a small sampler set to test on your skin prior to purchasing a larger size set or refill.

Anyone can find themselves sensitive to a product at anytime, even if you've never had issues with it in the past. We use skin safe fragrance oils, but that doesn't mean that some people won't end up with a sensitivity. WE CANNOT REFUND due to skin sensitivities. Because of this we urge you to TRY SAMPLES first just to see if your skin has a problem with the product. Due to the nature of the products we sell we can't accept returns on dusting powder unless we made a mistake with the original order. A "mistake" does not include an unknown sensitivity. We carefully label our products and repeatedly encourage you to be aware that SOME people may have issues. It's a rare occurrence, but it does happen. To avoid receiving an order you may not be able to use PLEASE opt to try our small and very economically priced samplers first. Ask if you have any questions prior to purchase. I am always happy to help. I personally have issues with some products that contain fragrance, so I understand how it can hit you by surprise. It is your responsibility to take this into consideration prior to placing an order for dusting powder with fragrance added. We never, ever sell "returned powder" to our customers - ever!

►If you should receive an order that is not as described or is defective in some way you can return it within 3 days. Please contact me to make arrangements. I will refund ONLY the payment for the item purchased IF the item returned is in the original condition (so that it can be re-listed and sold once it had been returned _ does not include powder....unused puffs and containers only will be resold ). Postage will NOT be refunded.

Orders damaged in transit due to USPS mishandling will be handled on a case by case basis. Most orders will be shipped with insurance included. Please contact me and I will work with you to set about making a claim on a damaged order. If I fail to package your order properly and damage occurs during shipping please contact me to discuss the problem and I'll be happy to offer a refund if I am at fault.

► It is YOUR responsibility to fully inspect your order when it arrives (within 24 hours if possible). If you find that something has been damaged in transit please contact me immediately and I will do my best to help you resolve the issue. If the problem is due to the item not being as described, or if the item is defective in some way PLEASE do not wait to contact me. I am always happy to address problems, but I CAN'T refund or replace purchases that you have neglected to inform me about within a reasonable amount of time. "Reasonable" to me should be within a 72 hour time frame of you opening the package. If you contact me several weeks after receiving the order I cannot refund or replace your purchase as I am not responsible for what happens to it once it takes up residence at your house. Defects or problems will be evident upon receiving an order and need to be brought to my attention immediately if you will be requiring my assistance.

CUSTOM ORDERS: If you engage my services for a custom order please be advised that I DO NOT GIVE REFUNDS! Your custom designs and colors will be approved by you via photos before I ship your order. I will converse with you through numerous conversations via Etsy and email to discuss your needs and customization requests. I will get your approval before I ship. If your order is delivered damaged in shipment please let me know ASAP and I will assist you in resolving the issue......but, unless I made a mistake in some way custom orders are NOT refundable.

►CANCELLATION OF "MADE TO ORDER" Items: If you purchase a "made to order item" and decide to cancel the order after work has begun, please be advised that once I start to process your order (in other words - I start working on your order per your request = investing time and energy) a fee of 15% will be charged for my time which will be deducted from the purchase price. I encourage you to ask questions prior to making a purchase, especially on made to order items as it is essentially a custom order that will be made for you when you purchase the listing. This is an agreement between buyer and seller that work will be done on your behalf. If you engage my services for a custom/made or order item and choose to cancel the order due to no fault of ours we reserve the right to receive some compensation for our time.

►►►Please note that as I typically do accept custom orders I reserve the right to decline a custom order when I feel my schedule will not permit me to fulfill a request. It is not intended to offend in any way. If I should find it necessary to refuse a custom request I do so as to avoid disappointing you and creating unnecessary stress for us both. Please inquire if you have a custom request and I will let you know if I will be able to meet your time frame for delivery. "Custom" orders are orders for items that are not currently available in my shop listings and would involve using fabrics and/or altered design elements other than those shown in current listings. I am happy to accommodate custom orders when my schedule will permit me to do so. If I am unable to work on your custom order please check back in a couple of months to see if my schedule is a little more open. Thank you for understanding!
