About

What's so special about Lovin'TheGoodOleDays?

Remember the good ole days? Do you think back with fond memories? Do you have a yearning for some of that to come back or to stay a little longer? I know I do.

I am a homebody. I like the simple things in life. I am practical and down to Earth. There's just something special that comes to mind when we reminisce about the good ole days and I want my shop to have the feel of a simpler, less hectic, time. My items are practical, useful, meant to last a long time, just like they were in days gone by.

I sell upcycled clothes and housewares and accessories, but what I am really selling are smaller carbon footprints, old fashioned values, and a reminder of life before technology and convenience became the norm.

I am a one-woman shop; I chose what items to offer, I make everything myself, I am the photographer, the shipper, the marketer, and the customer service representative. I take pride in my work and I want every purchase to feel just as special to you when you receive it as it did for me when I was making it.

My shop is constantly evolving. When I find myself needing something that I can make I figure out how to make it, then if I think others will like it, I make more to include in my product line. Custom orders have had an influence on my shop, too. If you haven't yet, check out the items I have already sold to get an idea of what I have made. Just about every custom order request of "Can you make this?" ended with, "Yes I can." I like the challenge and I like being able to make exactly what someone else needs or wants, and I am always grateful that they thought enough of my skills and workmanship to come to me to make their special item. (I have also done custom orders for trade...something to keep in mind if you are also an Etsy shop owner.)

Your purchase from Lovin'TheGoodOleDays really means a lot to me. Going from sole provider/single mom to SAHM was a choice, but that doesn't mean I'm done. This mom's dream is to be a debt-free stay-at-home mom, who also happens to sew, a lot...and bake, and work in the garden.

    Owner

    I'm an old fashioned gal with traditional values. My dream is to be a WAHM, so I can always be available for my family. I love sewing, reading, cooking, and my cats, (but I'm not a crazy cat lady, just yet).

    Silent Partner

    Harry is my silent partner, my accountability buddy, my rock. He encourages me and believes in me...and sometimes helps pay for supplies.

    My Why

    I love being able to pick my son up from school, being home for him during the day to help with homework or listen to him play the trumpet. He's my motivation, my why.

Regarding custom orders, once we agree on the item(s) to be made, price, and time frame for completion, payment will be expected once the listing is placed. Payment options will also be considered. Each custom order is unique and varies based on your needs. Just know I am more than willing to work with you to make just what you want.
Shipping
Please note that shipping charges include packaging material, as well as the cost of postage. I will ship your item within 2-5 business days (postal holidays excluded) after your payment has been cleared, unless stated otherwise, and will send you a message via Etsy to let you know your item is on the way. All packages will be sent with a delivery confirmation number for tracking purposes, when possible.

Customers outside of the United Sates will be responsible for any fees associated with shipping the purchased item(s).

If I have not received a payment or if I have not had any communication from you regarding the reason for the delay in payment, I will have to cancel the sale so that the item may be re-listed.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds, exchanges, or store credit for damaged or otherwise unwanted (but not damaged) purchases will be issued given I have been contacted within 14 days of delivery, and only after the item has been returned to me. Worn, used, or washed items, and especially wool items that have shrunk, may not be returned, as I will not be able to resell those items. Buyers are responsible for all associated return shipping costs.
Additional policies and FAQs
**Privacy Policy**
Any personal information collected from the buyer (address, email, phone number) will only be used for the purpose of communicating regarding a transaction. This includes custom order requests, confirmation of an order, shipping notification, delivery confirmation, and, if necessary, if there is a question or concern with a purchase.

**Receipt Policy**
Unless you specifically request a paper receipt you will not receive one with your purchase.

**Store Discount**
If you have a discount code, please enter it upon upon purchase. Discounts will be deducted in the checkout process.

**Gift Purchases and Gift Wrapping**
I will gladly ship your item to a gift recipient. Just let me know at the time of the purchase. I especially need to know if the package will be going to a different address than is listed for the buyer.

The checkbook covers automatically come wrapped in tissue with a ribbon. If you purchase something else and would like it wrapped in tissue, please let me know in the message to buyer when checking out.

**Sizing Details**
With the upcycled items, sizing is always approximate. I do take measurements which I hope will help you in determining if the size is correct for you. In almost all cases my garments are made with stretchy fabric, which makes the sizes less specific, and thusly, more forgiving.

**Care Instructions**
With the upcycled creations, it is best to hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry. With the wool items in particular, please note that I do not pre-shrink the wool, so proper wool cleaning care is needed.

Checkbook covers may be spot washed, and if they become heavily soiled, they may be machine washed in cold water. Using a hot steam iron (cotton setting) is also helpful.

**Wholesale Availability**
Please contact me directly for wholesale inquiries.

**Allergy Notification**
All items come from a smoke-free home. We do, however, have cats in our home.
