ReaDo's Shop Policies


Thank you so much for shopping ReaDo. I'm a stay at home mom of three young children and have learned to make a little bit go a long way. I've taken that philosphy into crafting and have chosen to repurpose old books into purses! I hope you enjoy the shop!

Please note: All books are used and so the covers show wear. I have done my best to choose unique covers in good condition. However, the minor wear and tear adds to the story of your item.

Items come from a smoke free home.


I accept PayPal payment and money orders in US Dollars.

You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal:

You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button. Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

Payment must be made in full and have cleared before the item is shipped.

If you are having issues with PayPal or any other aspect of the transaction, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will work with you to accommodate your needs.


Please be sure to enter your correct shipping address for purchases. In the event that Etsy and PayPal show two different addresses, your package will be shipped to the Etsy address.

Items are wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon, and placed in a sturdy shipping box. All items are shipped within 3 working days of your payment clearing.

ReaDo ships using US Postal Service Priority Mail. Other shipping methods can be used; just convo me! I can combine shipping on multiple purchases.

Refunds and Exchanges

I'm sorry but at this time ReaDo cannot accept refunds or exchanges, please purchase seriously. If you are unhappy with your order for any reason please contact me within 5 working days of receiving your package to try to correct the situation.

Additional Policies and FAQs

I can custom make a purse with a book of your choice. All custom orders must be purchased within one week of an active listing. After one week, I will make the book available for general sale. Please convo me for more information.

ReaDo reserves the right to refuse a sale to anyone with a history of abusive feedback and/or malicious behaviour towards other Etsy members.

If you have any questions about any of my items or policies please do not hesitate to contact me either by sending an etsy convo or by email.
