For the Love of iPhoneography

My name is Sandy Wiggins and I live in Vancouver, BC the most beautiful city in the world (ok, so I'm a tad biased). We have two seasons here; Rainy and Not Rainy. We're big on hockey, coffee and dogs (not necessarily in that order). I live a short 10 minute walk from the ocean and I do my best to get there several times a week. I also frequent Stanley Park, Granville Island and Van Dusen Gardens. It was at Van Dusen where I was inspired to paint small acrylic florals. These are also sold in my shop and all are originals.

I have been taking pictures since receiving a camera as a child on my birthday. Although my camera choice has changed over the many years, my favorite subjects have remained constant - pets and nature (mostly botanicals). While the majority of my adult life I shot with film, (never a digital camera), it was only when I went to upgrade my old cell phone and negotiated an awesome deal for an iPhone, that I really discovered the amazing range of options digital photography offered. Referred to as iPhoneography, Wikipedia defines it as follows: " iPhoneography is the art of creating photos with an Apple iPhone. This is a style of mobile photography that differs from all other forms of digital photography in that images are both shot and processed on the iOS device". I shoot all of my photos myself and processes them solely on my iPhone using any number of apps I have downloaded. Sometimes I may just do some minor editing using only one app, other times I may choose to significantly alter them by blending images, "painting" them or even altering them entirely to create an abstract image.

Early in 2013, a friend encouraged me to open a shop on Etsy. I am amazed at the talent and creativity of the artists and often browse the vintage shops for potential finds. It's a pleasure to be part of such a friendly, talented and passionate community.

If you are having any issues with PayPal, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will attempt to assist you in any way that I can.

If you purchase something and change your mind before paying please let me know and I will cancel the transaction. Items not paid for after 7 days will be canceled.
*IMPORTANT NOTICE* Please be aware that Canada Post will be in a position to strike as of July 2nd. Though we don't know at this point the extent of the strike it will potentially significantly affect any orders between now (June 25th) and until it is over. I will update as I'm awake.

Your order will ship from Canada. Shipping is via Canada Post and my shipping prices are determined using Canada Post's website ( Once an item has been shipped you will received notification.

PLEASE NOTE: Should you pay more for shipping than the actual cost I will refund you the difference (for amounts of $2Cdn or more only) right away.

I am not responsible for what happens to your parcel while in transit to you. If you have not requested and paid for insurance and tracking, I cannot provide a refund if your order is not delivered or damaged in transit or during delivery. If your order has tracking and insurance, I will help with your insurance claim.

Some countries charge customs tax (also fees, duties, tariffs, taxes, etc) on items entering their borders and as much as I would like to abolish all taxes and then personally deliver your item to see where it may be placed in your home, I simply cannot. I am not responsible for these taxes anymore than I can stop the rain (I live in Vancouver and goodness knows I've tried) so the responsibility rests with the buyer to cover any charges in this situation. Returns due to unpaid customs charges will not be refunded.
Refunds and Exchanges
I really hope you will love your item but I want you to be happy and if you are not 100% satisfied with it I will accept returns for store credit. Store credit will be given at the value spent minus the shipping and handling costs of the returned item. 

If you wish to return an item please contact me within 2 days of your package arriving at your home and I will be glad to provide an exchange, provided you return the item(s) in the same condition they were sent in and pay the return shipping costs. Store credit will only be given once the item is safely delivered back to me. Please remember that in the case of the photography, colors may differ slightly from the online picture due to color differences and calibration on each computer.

If your item is damaged in transit please cut out a 3 inch square from the middle of the picture (in the case of my photography and artwork) and then send it back in an envelope.

These are old and previously used items. Please be sure to review the listing and examine the details in the photos. I do my best to explain and capture damage and wear to items - please feel free to ask questions and request additional photos before your purchase.

I will only provide a full refund if an item has been misrepresented or listed incorrectly. Only when an item has been returned I will refund the purchase. Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.
