~ Shipping Information ~

Most clothing and accessory items being shipped to US destinations will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate with Delivery Confirmation. You can always pay extra to have the item shipped Overnight, but please be aware that even overnight shipping can take 2 days depending on the time the package is mailed. Original artwork and/or items shipped to US destinations will most likely be shipped by FedEx or UPS. I generally ship within 3 - 5 business days [or sooner] and your item will be shipped on the next scheduled shipping day after your payment is received.


A note regarding shipping: If an item is listed as having shipping included, this only applies to items which will be delivered to a United States destination. I CAN ship internationally and outside the United States, but we do not list a shipping quote due to many factors such as the international destination of the package and final weight of package to be shipped. The price of tracked and insured international shipping is very expensive. And Paypal only protects sellers/buyers who ship internationally WITH tracking. Therefore, i can only ship using the tracked/insured method. Please feel free to contact me for an international shipping estimate!

I'm very much into recycling as many things as possible. Clothing is a given, as most of what i sell is vintage or OOAK upcycled item. I think of myself as a "green" shoppe and am concerned about cutting down on the amount of waste that is so prevalent in this country. I reuse packaging from other sources, and the materials that these packages contain. One of the ways that i heat my house is by wood pellets, and the huge bags they come in are a heavy and thick white plastic. I turn them inside out and use them as an "envelope" for larger items like heavy sweaters and coats. I've gotten several replies telling me how great they think it is that i am reusing something that would otherwise end up in an already overcrowded landfill!


~ International Buyers ~

Please know and understand the tax structure of your country. I am not responsible for any Customs, VAT or duties that the buyer's country may charge as I have no way of knowing if these charges will occur on the buyers end.


~ Insurance Information ~


Insurance is included on all items shipped via Priority Mail, Fed Ex or UPS.



~ Payment Information ~


Paypal [Credit Cards and E-checks through Paypal are always welcome]. Please have a CONFIRMED address with Paypal. I can only ship to the CONFIRMED address on your Paypal account. No exceptions, please.



~ Layaway Information ~

If you have an item on layaway and have made partial payments no refunds will be given if you later decide that you no longer want the piece that has been on hold for you.



Have fun shopping and thank you for your support!

About

Thanks for stopping by at Saphoona! I am an autodidactic verbal and visual artist whose work has sold in the US and Internationally.

Check out the new redesign of Saphoona.com including a responsive look, new items, and easier navigation for both mobile and desktop computers!

I am an artist who also has a passion for vintage clothing. So I've combined both of my loves into one shoppe called Saphoona [pronounced "saf - ooh' - nuh]. I "opened" my shoppe in 2008, but that was just to secure the shoppe name, should I want to use it in the future. Upon opening, I only added a few items just to keep the shoppe live and in service. When those few items sold, I didn't add much of anything else until several years later. I was putting most of my effort into my other websites including my stand-alone clothing shoppe located elsewhere online, but then I decided to jump in and add Etsy to my repertoire. Feel free to have a look around. You can find some fun, wonderful and unique items here!


I am currently living in the middle of nowhere in a huge Victorian farmhouse that I am renovating to look like a Brothers Quay movie set. I've just finished writing a new novel, I'm working on new art and doing a million other things. There are not enough hours in a day for me!

- Artist's Statement -

I am insignificant. I am substantial. I am soldered with laughter and tears. I am Xerox opposed. A small, peculiar refugee on a journey copious and delphic. Ever mindful of the monsters along the way. I tuck them tightly in my hands so they will remember my imprint upon their skin.

My images and subject matter are not typically "pretty", and they are often disturbing. I like to think that my work will cause some sort of fluctuation in the attitude of the viewer, and this adjustment does not happen when things are too soundly anchored in the acceptable. In order for change to occur, the perception of the viewer must be moved around, altered or otherwise 'disturbed'.

My work centers mostly around myths and legends from ancient civilizations and other cultures. These myths and legends are important to us as a society because it gives us a glimpse into the evolution or devolution of humanity, as it may be. But I also weave my own life experience into each work, so these pieces are both historical and autobiographical... classical yet personal. It isn't unusual for me to take a month or two to complete a work. This timeline is from conception to completion. I spend a lot of time thinking about the piece before I actually start it. And I also spend a lot of time studying each piece as it progresses and weaving into it the stories that the piece speaks to me about.

My purpose as an artist is to make my viewers feel an emotional response. They don’t even have to understand the message in my work or understand why a particular work affects them so deeply. As long as it makes them feel something, even if for a brief moment, my mission as an artist has been completed.

Despite the medium, my work centers around three basic themes of dichotomous opposites:


freedom/confinement
light/dark
hope/despair


we cannot have one, without the other.



I would like to close with a quote by fellow artist, Julian Schnabel. I feel that this quote sums up my experience with art and life, much better than i could ever hope to do via the written word.

There was a little prince with a magic crown.

An evil warlock kidnapped him, locked him in a cell in a huge tower and took away his voice.

There was a window with bars.

The prince kept smashing his head against the bars hoping that someone would hear the sound and find him.

The crown made the most beautiful sound that anyone ever heard. You could hear the ringing for miles and miles.

It was so beautiful that people wanted to grab the air.

They never found the prince.

He never got out of the cell.

But the sound he made filled everything up with beauty.
