Announcement   Welcome to Pru Atelier....

I usually ship everything on the same day sold and latest the day after. If a weekend or holiday falls in that time frame, your purchase goes out the next available business day.

Checking my messages several times during the day and night is important, so your question or comment will always be answered in a timely fashion and never go unanswered.

All purchases are packed very well with padding/bubble wrap and/or paper and plastic protection, and have not had anything to date break in shipping! I do NOT use Styrofoam peanuts in any of my shipments as they are messy and items can shift in the box.

Overages in postage of $1 or more are happily refunded.

All items are from a smoke-free environment.

My other Etsy shop NorthBirdsong opened in 2008, is on hiatus for now.

About

I am a dreamer ....

This is what keeps me on my path…

I see beauty in so much…everything from music and art to the beautiful mountain vistas that surround me. I remain planted where I am with a hopeful spirit and try, in this hectic fast-paced world, to keep a song in my heart ~

The raison d’etre for this shop was to turn my collections of both vintage and new fabrics, antique laces, ribbons, trimmings and buttons into treasured items of finery for others, but somehow the de-stashing of fabrics, trimmings, home furnishings, etc. has taken over for a longer while than I had hoped ~

Into the mix I am sadly parting with the no-longer-my-size collection of vintage clothes that I enjoyed wearing back in the 80s, romping among the historical mansions of Long Island's Gold Coast where many of America's famous "robber barons" once lived, loved and played ~

For when I do go back into creative mode, inspiration hits me when drooling over that fabulous vintage 40s dress with a beautiful cut and drape, the magnificence of color in a Venetian glass goblet, a wonderfully artistic piece of jewelry, the intricate delicacy of antique lace, the beautiful artistry of old magazine advertisements, and the flourishes of cursive script upon a 19th Century bill of sale....all play a part in the process ~

My previous wanderings included stints at a frame shop, department store, travel club, advertising agency, publishing house, for garment center manufacturers, my own sample-making business in the garment center, a lingerie shop, gift/decorating shop, home emporium, decorative fabric store, a luxury linens company, a small opera house and furniture store to name a few….and having designed and made many dozens of decorative pillows and soft home furnishings, contracted custom drapery treatments, designed and made fabric handbags, to clothes both for a private clientele as well as select retail shops....I've done it ..... Now, I'm on my own and I report to no one but you dear customer ~

So, take a few minutes to browse, do enjoy your visit and I would love for you to honor me with a visit again!

Welcome to my shop!

I started this shop as a venue for designing and making vintage-style clothing and accessories along with a few soft home furnishings. As I have had many items to sell - a de-stash if you wish - collectibles, antique pieces, vintage clothing, samples of clothing, pillows, fabrics and trimmings, etc., new design work has taken a longer time to get off the ground and is gradually making an appearance.

These are the vintage-style items of clothing under "created" tab, these are almost always one-of-a-kind and sold as is, but I may be able to take a custom order if supplies are accessible. I can never guarantee that a specific fabric/trim will be available and will always base my ability to make up these orders upon that issue.

It is also important to understand that each monitor will showcase color differently and that my best efforts will be exercised for accuracy, so I cannot afford to accept returns based upon dissatisfaction with color or fabric. Please request a swatch beforehand for color on custom orders.

I also try to quote a reasonable turnaround time for custom orders, which can be anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks depending upon first come, first served.

Please message me FIRST to discuss any concerns, custom items desired and time frame needed for construction and delivery.

All items are from a smoke-free environment.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Upon your purchase of an item, payments are accepted via Paypal or Direct Checkout and the merchandise will be shipped WITHIN 2 days of payment unless there is a holiday weekend.

Should I not receive payment for a purchase within 2 days of order, I will be forced to deem it a non-sale and re-list the item unless I hear from you.

SHIPPING ADDRESS:
PLEASE make sure your shipping address is an accurate USPS address (US customers) AND up to date with both Paypal and Etsy (US and International customers) as I cannot be responsible for items shipped to an old or incorrect address if that is what you have listed.

If an item you purchase is returned to me as undeliverable, I will resend only upon your payment of additional postage charges. I cannot be responsible if your item goes to an incorrect address which you have provided, or if there is no one to accept the package and as a result it then gets returned to me.

RESERVED Items:
I MUST have a time frame for reserving an item before I will reserve it. I will reserve something unpaid for no longer than a week or a mutually agreed upon time frame, and if it is not purchased or I don't hear anything from you, it will be taken off reserve and made available again for anyone to purchase.

LAYAWAY:
There are certain high value items for which I will accept a layaway payment plan. If we mutually agree on a layaway payment plan, the payments must be made in a timely manner within a day or 2 of the dates due (with allowances made for world time zone differences) and I will invoice for you for each payment due through Paypal. If you anticipate a temporary delay, please contact me so we may work it out. I may have to cancel the sale and refund payments already made less 20%, if payments are not made on an agreed upon schedule.

NEW YORK BUYERS: Sales Tax will be automatically added to your total.
Shipping
I ship Priority Mail Flat Rate, First Class Mail and Parcel Post/Standard Post depending on size of the piece and try to provide the most economical mode of shipping for the particular item. When it is shipped, I provide tracking information.

If you prefer some other method of shipping, please contact me BEFORE your purchase and we can work it out. I have better access to the post office than to UPS and FEDEX.

I estimate postage as best I can without adding extra for shipping supplies, so oftentimes I cannot know what the postage charges to all locations would be. I also try to reuse shipping supplies and do NOT use peanuts for packing as they are too messy and items move around having the potential to break.

I promptly refund overages in postage over $1.00 by the next day or 2 after purchase.

I insure most all high value/breakable items at my expense to assure they arrive without issue to their destination.

I will combine shipping if you purchase multiple items within 1 day, and the adjustment to shipping will be made after you contact me with your request as no 2 items are the same size. If you do not contact me prior to purchase, I will automatically refund differences after I have your items packed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS

I will ship most items Via International First Class Mail (up to 4 pounds), or Priority Mail - whichever is most economical - and provide a customs/tracking number where available.

PLEASE REALIZE THAT ANY CUSTOMS CHARGES ARE NOT ADDED TO YOUR PURCHASE BY THIS SHOP BUT BY YOUR COUNTRY AND ARE THEREFORE TO BE PAID BY BUYER. If you are concerned that a purchase may accrue customs charges, usually over a certain dollar amount and which differs for each country, please check with your postal/customs service before your purchase.

Should you not receive your purchase in a timely manner as would be customary for your country, please check with your customs service as they may be holding it for your pick-up. It is very difficult and many times not at all possible for me via the USPS to track international shipments.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FOR ANY OTHER SHIPPING QUESTIONS or upgrades, PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIOR TO PURCHASE.
Refunds and Exchanges
As I do not accept returns on any items due to buyer's remorse, including custom items. If there is an issue with something you have purchased, please inform me of the fact BEFORE you leave a review/feedback....I'm sure it can be worked out to both our satisfaction!

I try to describe each item accurately, have clear pictures of same, list all measurements and mention anything that would be a flaw, so should you be concerned about a particular color or any other issue, please contact me PRIOR to purchase. If there is the rare issue that I have missed, it is not due to dishonesty, but having less than perfect vision!

I also take the utmost care and always pack each item with sufficient padding protection and in plastic for protection inside the box to avoid breakage or getting wet. Outside of one small item, I have not had any breakage of numerous very fragile items that I have shipped, so unfortunately I cannot provide refunds or accept returns due to damage in shipping.

For Damages:
If an item was damaged or lost from its packaging in shipping, I must take it up with the carrier with a claim filed as they issue the refunds to me.

PLEASE keep all packaging materials and provide me with a photo of the broken/damaged item along with a photo of the original packing material as proof for a claim.

CUSTOM ITEMS are also not exchangeable, returnable or refundable, as these items will be made to your own specifications.
Additional policies and FAQs
Any heavy/bulk items I ship via Standard/Parcel Post, I insure as this form of shipment allows for mishandling.

This is also a slightly slower form of shipment too, so please be aware that it may take a bit longer to arrive.

If you desire faster shipping time, please let me know so that I may charge the additional shipping cost.
