Announcement   I will be closing down this shop soon and I'm transferring my lovely beauties over to my other shop www.etsy.com/shop/thevintagearcade for the time being, so please pop over and take a look and also find your favourites from this shop too. Thank you.

I am self taught and follow no set artistic or creative path, I just make things I want to make and alter things I want to alter, so please pop in and browse, I will be creating and inventing new artwork pieces as my shop grows and please click 'Like' if you like.

Since 2010 my shop was called ScotlandUK, however this never did hold the meaning of my shop or items for sale, so I have recently (July 2017) changed it to represent me and my work better, My new shop is now called 'ALTERED & INVENTED.' ( when looking it up type in alteredandinvented )
So welcome to my new shop and keep popping back to see my latest listings.

About

I make and create till my heart sings

I follow my heart when making and creating I have no set path and if anything had to be written in stone for some weird reason I would only do it in pencil.
(Charcoal of course !)
I recently changed my previous shop to open up Altered and Invented as I wanted a clearer podium to show my items and to better offer my customers my Altered, Invented and handmade pieces. I hope you like them and keep popping back as I add more and more of my creations. Thank you and enjoy.

I would like to welcome you to my shop and hope you will become a frequent visitor.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
Can you please ensure your postal address is worded exactly the way your postal service insists upon i.e. The zip / post code in the exact order otherwise your item may be rejected and returned to the sender ( me) This has not happened to me but it has to others sometimes just because something like the postal/zip code was on another line ( or wasn't on another line) when this happens the item is rejected by your country. If this does happen it will inevitably mean a second postal cost will be incurred for you as I can't be held responsible for this. If your country has such rigid rules on this matter it's best to alert me to this before shipping your item and we can both check all is as it should be- Just a wee heads up.


I package all my items with weight/bulk in mind to help keep shipping costs to a minimum but will never compromise protection of you purchase.

If an item goes missing I always ask for proof of postage and will be happy to forward you a copy to help you trace your missing goods. I can't be held responsible for items lost, damaged or missing.

Duties, Custom charges & allowed goods vary from country to country, it is your responsibility to look into and pay any import charges sent products may incur.
Additional policies and FAQs
In making a number of my products I often use vintage and antique pieces,which can carry signs of history & age, please don’t expect brand new and some of these items come with genuine patina and age.
