About

Welcome to The Lillie Pad! Ever delightful and always handmade.

Hi, y'all! I'm Amanda, the owner and designer here at The Lillie Pad. The Lillie Pad is a great place to find delightful and whimsical handmade gift ideas for the ones you love. From crocheted ladies accessories and original crochet patterns, to fun housewares and original toddler tees, you are sure to find something to make you or someone you love smile. My products are proudly handmade in my beloved home state of Georgia.

I opened my Etsy shop in 2011 after losing my teaching job during the recession. In 2013 my crochet hobby turned into a full-time handmade business overnight when one of my crochet designs went viral worldwide. I became an Etsy top seller and to date and I have sold over 15,000 crochet patterns and over 8,000 handmade items in my Etsy and Ravelry shops. My work has been featured in The Daily Mail and on the BBC, Good Morning America and The Today Show as well as Cosmopolitan magazine, The Huffington Post, BuzzFeed and much more!

As a fourth generation crocheter in my family the art of crochet is in my blood. Several years ago I began honing my skills with the craft and really connected with it. After a few weeks of work I showed my granny some of my first projects. She cheered my efforts. Then she left the room and soon returned with a mason jar filled with vintage crochet hooks. But these were not just any crochet hooks. These were hooks which had once belonged to by my great-grandmother and my grandfather. My great-grandmother and her son, my grandfather, were well known for their amazing and intricate crochet creations. My granny handed me the jar of hooks and told me, "Keep making pretty things with them". A treasured memory and a treasured gift. Those crochet hooks are among my dearest possessions, connecting me to my heritage and reminding me to carry on crafts and traditions of my ancestors.

In recent years I have added vinyl embellished home goods and personalized gifts to my shop such as custom glass soap dispensers, sassy graphic kitchen towels, and original t-shirt designs for babies and toddlers.

I am also the co-owner of The Market Gals coaching services shop here on Etsy with fellow Etsian Brianna Torrey. At The Market Gals we offer craft show and digital sales mentoring services and critiques to handmade sellers. Check us out at themarketgals.etsy.com. I am also a co-founder of Handmades Sale, an established craft show based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Ready-Made Items: Cancellations can be made before shipment. Any cancellations made after item is shipped will be considered a "Return" (see Refund policy).
Shipping
Communication is the most important thing to me! Please contact me, and I will do my best to meet your needs and answer your questions. You can refer to the following shipping policies for my store:

PROCESSING TIME BEFORE SHIPMENT
Current processing times are stated clearly in each item's description. Once you purchase an item a "ship by" date will be listed on your invoice reflecting that processing time, indicating the latest possible date that your item will ship out from me. It does not include shipping (delivery) time.

SHIPPING ADDRESS
-Buyer is responsible for making sure that the shipping address is correct at time of purchase. Customer assumes responsibility for the accuracy of the shipping address.

LOST, STOLEN, OR DAMAGED PACKAGES
-If it looks as if your package might have been lost in transit please contact me. Please know that in rare cases the USPS may take up to 30 days to deliver first class or priority mail.
-Buyer is responsible for having a secure area for the package to be delivered. Items that are lost or stolen after being marked "delivered" by the USPS are the responsibility of the buyer, and not the responsibility of my shop or the USPS.
-If an item is lost or stolen in transit I am happy to assist with filing a claim or communicating with the postal service.
-If an item is returned to me by the post office as "undeliverable" for any reason I can resend it to the buyer, with buyer re-purchasing postage. Otherwise no refunds if there is a delivery failure as a result of an inaccurate address.
-If an item is damaged upon arrival, whether by faulty design or by rough transit please contact me immediately. Depending on the situation I will work with you to either replace, fix, exchange, or return the item, or I will help with filing a USPS claim.

--The Lillie Pad is not responsible for late delivery of packages with USPS First Class or Priority Mail. Once I ship your order on time as promised according to the ship-by date stated on your invoice and it is in the possession of the postal service I cannot control the delivery time of your order. However, if you purchase Priority Express shipping and your order is delivered late you are entitled to a full refund of the shipping charges. Please let me know if that is the case.
--International tracking numbers and customs form numbers may only be limited to tracking a package within the US. Some countries do not continue to use the original tracking number upon arrival in the destination country. If you prefer door-to-door tracking please contact me prior to purchase and I will inform you of your shipping options.

REMINDER TO INTERNATIONAL BUYERS

--The buyer is responsible for any VAT/import/duty taxes or fees that may be levied upon package's arrival. Please be aware of these charges for your individual country prior to purchase. Check your country's postal website for rules before purchase. Your postal service could hold your package for VAT charges and will not release the package to you until you pay this fee.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns/Exchanges on Ready-Made (non-custom) items are accepted within 30 days of the date of payment for the item(s). Please contact me to let me know you wish to return an item. Buyer pays the return shipping. Once the returned item has arrived back to me, you will be refunded the purchase price, minus the original shipping charges. I reserve the right to withhold refunds on returns until the item is returned to me.

Refunds of Digital Download items: Please contact me if you have a problem with your digital item. I do not offer refund on instant digital downloads except in very special cases (i.e. duplicate orders). Sorry, no refunds on digital download purchases if any of the files have been marked as "downloaded" on Etsy.

Returns/Exchanges on Custom Orders: Sorry, no returns on custom orders, especially on items that are personalized with names or monograms or are made to a special size. Please be sure that you ask any necessary questions about your custom order before purchase to ensure that you and I are clear on the details of your order. For some items in my shop I may be able to offer an exchange for your item (Buyer pays return and new shipping).

EU Right of Withdrawl: Buyers residing in EU countries that are subject to the Right of Withdrawl regulations have the right to return an item within 14 days of receiving the item. This right does not extend to custom-made items nor digital content items in my shop. To initiate the Right of Withdrawl on an applicable item purchased from my shop buyers must contact me directly within the 14 day period after delivery and I will provide a withdrawal/cancellation form to include with the return. The buyer is responsible for paying all return shipping costs.

Return to Sender: Any domestic or international packages (except for those in applicable Right of Withdrawl countries in the EU) marked "refused," "return to sender", "not called for", "undeliverable" etc. by the buyer or postal service upon arrival and are sent back to me (opened or unopened) without prior notification from the buyer are not eligible for a shipping refund, and may or may not be subject to a full or partial refund of the item unless previously agreed upon between myself and the buyer prior to the return. If an item is returned as "undeliverable" I can re-send the package by request, buyer pays for new postage. See Shipping Policies for more info.
