About

In praise of the past

While there's something about every period in history that inspires me, the romantic, elaborate, and often eccentric aesthetic of the Victorians remains the most significant influence on my taste. I especially love sentimental items like mourning jewelry, hair work, and love tokens: Literal manifestations of one person's affection for another. I take a fastidious, curatorial approach to collecting, choosing items for their quality, uniqueness, and beauty.

"Roses and Rue" is an early poem by my hero Oscar Wilde, which he wrote for the actress Lillie Langtry. Always fond of dramatic gestures, it's said he used to throw stargazer lilies at her feet. It's not a particularly good poem, but a line that never made it into the final draft is a favorite of mine: "You had poets enough on the shelf- I gave you myself."

Payment
I accept payments through Paypal only. While I'm not able to accept credit card payments directly through Etsy at this time, you can easily make a credit card payment through Paypal, whether you have an account there or not.

If you need to make different payment arrangements, let me know and we will work something out.
Shipping
Most domestic orders ship USPS Priority Mail, which includes tracking and insurance up to $50. Shipping charges may be higher for items of greater value: I sell unique, one-of-a-kind items that are not easily replaced, so I want to make sure that your purchases are protected.

If you are ordering multiple items, please contact me before purchasing so that you don't overpay for shipping. In the event that you do pay more than is necessary, expect a refund for the difference.

Please also contact us if you are an international buyer and would like tracking and insurance for your package. Providing these services for international shipments costs extra.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final. That said, I strive to provide accurate information and want you to be happy with your purchase, so if you have any doubts or questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

As mentioned, I always ship with tracking and insurance within the US to protect you against damages and loss. If you have chosen not to have insurance on your package, we cannot assume responsibility for damaged, lost, or stolen goods.
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the high volume of customers asking to put items on hold but never following through with the sale, I can only hold items for a period of three days. If I don't receive payment within that time or do not hear from you, I must make the item available to other buyers again.

If you are looking for something in particular, let me know! Send me your Wish List and I will see what I can find for you.
