Announcement   Helping others let their lights shine is the goal of this shop. ShiningCityFound is focused on helping artists from around the world achieve their fullest potential through selling in new markets. The ShiningCityFound Etsy shop is an extension of the Shining City Foundation. The Shining City Foundation has spent over a decade working with partners throughout the world on various projects including the building of medical clinics and support of orphanages. Shining City focuses on supporting and creating initiatives in remote parts of the world to enhance the health and general welfare of underserved people.

"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

This extension of the Shining City Foundation aims to create a new and meaningful market for its members. Mr. Kalungi of Kampala, Uganda and Mr. Kahn of Yunnan Province, China are members of the shop who create the hand made goods. Emily Raecker is the shop operator and reports on a monthly basis to the Shining City Foundation Board of Directors.

ShiningCityFound looks forward to expanding upon the growth of the shop as the members directly benefit through sales. It is a blessing to help others in ways that are not possible in their current location.

Shop policies

Last updated on September 15, 2013
Welcome to Shining City Found.

I strive for excellence in all I do - including your experience in our shop.

I strive to provide items that are unique and not readily accessible from entrepreneurs I have a personal relationship with through my international humanitarian efforts.

Please remember that all items are handmade by artists from different parts of the world which means there could be a variation in design and color. I do my best to represent accurate design and color of each unique piece of artwork in photos and descriptions.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
All sales are final with the exception of damage done during shipping.
Payment
I accept Etsy direct checkout which means you may use your credit card.

I will ship your item within 3 to 5 business days.

If your payment gets delayed more than 48 hours after the transaction I will contact you to remedy the situation. If that communication does not receive a response within 48 hours I will cancel the sale and make the item available for others.
Shipping
I ship all items through US Postal Service or UPS ground. In my current schedule I am shipping on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and appreciate your understanding of balancing my college commitments with fulfilling your order.

When shipping to Hawaii, Alaska or international there will be an adjusted shipping price. If you are in this category please convo me prior to purchase.
