Announcement   Local peeps: I will honor craft show prices for local orders :) I also can take custom order requests. Want a character or theme you do not see? Just convo me!

OK, I learned there really is no cheaper shipping option for sticker books :( I will always try to ship them the cheapest option and refund any shipping overage!

Going through my storage and parting with some very personal pieces of my collection (Lu Lu's) as well as listing some extras I got in lots on Ebay. Thanks for looking and have a berry good day!

About

Extra, extra! Stick it to the...album?!?

My retro wares shop was started as a way to fund our first family trip to Disney World. Now I use it to sell extras to my collections and sticker albums. Our sticker albums are made by Mom, inspired by my kiddos.

Growing up in the 80's we had awesome stickers and albums. When I became a Mom, and started collecting stickers with my babies, I noticed there is a severe lack of awesome albums available for sticker collections.

One day my son asked me if we could make our own sticker albums, so I pulled out my trusty laminating machine and we got to work. Ours are a bit different than the ones featured in the shop because they also incorporate hand drawn art.

Everything handmade in my shop is made with love. I love design and have been a paper crafter for many years. Making sticker albums brings me joy because it helps me to connect with my inner child AND I get to put a smile on another child's face.

I even made a sticker book for myself featuring the one and only, totally outrageous Jem and the Holograms! You can check that out here: https://iceempress.wordpress.com/sticker-albums/

Thank you for checking out my shop. Bookmark me and check back often, you never know what I am going to list next :)

I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)

If I misrepresent an item I will be happy to refund the purchase upon receiving the item back within seven business days. I want my dolls and toys to go to homes where they will be cherished and loved. If you are not happy then I am not happy. Please think before you buy though, refunds for buyer remorse are frowned upon. They not only hurt me, but they hurt my kids. Every minute I am here on Etsy is potentially a moment I am away from them and that time is irreplaceable. Thanks for understanding. My job as Super Mom comes before my job as Retro Plastic toy peddler ;)
Payment
I accept Paypal, credit cards and Etsy gift certificates <3
Shipping
I ship on Saturdays unless you REALLY need something as soon as possible. I have two small children, so going to the Post Office multiples times a week is a daunting task. I will make exceptions though if you convo me first.

I will ship to Canada, please convo me for a shipping quote first. Thank you!

I currently do not ship overseas (I found it to be a really big hassle in the past), but I am willing to make an exception for that special collector who just cannot live without an item. Please convo me first, thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
I often wonder how people come up with the prices they do for vintage items, so I figured I would disclose how I come up with mine. Often times I am just looking to make back what I put out. Other times I have to do a little research. I check both live and sold Ebay listings, toy collecting sites, Mom and Pop toy store fronts and online competitors. I take all of the amounts that I find and I calculate a mean and go from there. I try not to over charge, but I also do not want to lose my shirt. Got a question about a price or the availability of an item? Feel free to convo me.
