Hello,

I am The Potions Mistress. I am descended down from a family known for bravery, potion making and sarcasm. I am a proud Slytherin and I am not afraid of the so called Dark Arts - in fact, I love all the arts. I love to draw, sculpt and sew clothing. I decided to open this shop to share my creations with you. Thank you for visiting - please feel free to ask me any questions.

Payment
I accept Paypal and Etsy Direct Checkout payments.

Payment must be received before I begin work on custom orders. Custom orders cannot be refunded. Please review dimensions and specifications carefully before ordering.

I do offer payment plans. Payments for items or multiple items can be split into two or more payments. At least one payment must be made for me to begin work. All payments have to be in before I can ship an order.

When ordering, please message me for specific times when purchasing made to order items. My production time varies from week to week based upon how many orders I have. I work on orders on a first come first serve basis. Rush orders are available for an added fee. Please note that I cannot reserve slots in my queue unless you have made a partial payment (as in a payment plan) or paid for the item(s) in full.
Shipping
Please message me for specific times when purchasing made to order items. My production time varies from week to week based upon how many orders I have. I work on orders on a first come first serve basis. Rush orders are available for an added fee. Please note that I cannot reserve slots in my queue unless you have made a partial payment (as in a payment plan) or paid for the item in full.

I ship via USPS. Once shipped, items can take 7 - 10 business days in transit for domestic orders. International shipping can take 2-3 weeks or longer. I cannot guarantee shipping times for overseas orders unless you upgrade to Express shipping. Please understand that items can get held up in customs for weeks and that this is beyond my control.

Shipping notifications will be sent with tracking numbers for domestic orders. For items shipped internationally, custom numbers will be given. Shipping times vary depending on your location, and the number of packages being handled by the USPS at the time. If you'd like to upgrade to either Priority or Express shipment please contact me ahead of time to make necessary arrangements.

Items can only be shipped. I do not offer local pick up at this time.

Please be careful when providing your shipping address. Mislabeled packages often take a very long time to return to sender and will be beyond my control to intercept or expedite. Once they have been returned to me, I can resend mislabeled packages, but the buyer is responsible for all shipping costs.

I will ship to the address that is provided to me upon ordering. If you need your items shipped to a different address than the one you have given Etsy, please contact me as soon as you order so that I can change the address label. I cannot change the address on a package once it has been sent out. You must notify me of any address change BEFORE I ship the items.

I am not responsible for lost or stolen packages once they have been marked as delivered. It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that someone is home for delivery if need be.

I ship via USPS. I will always finish and ship items on time. While it is extremely rare, packages can occasionally be delayed by a few days. Please take this into account when ordering. I will do everything in my power to ensure that orders are sent and shipped with ample time, once a package goes missing or is delayed it is beyond my power.

* Priority Mail in the US averages 2-5 business days, but can take up to 21 business days.
* First Class Mail Internationally averages 2-3 weeks, but can take up to 3 months if a package is stopped by your customs enforcement.

I understand that shipping costs can be quite high, and I am very sorry about this. I do what I can to keep costs down by creating items that can be separated for easy transport, but unfortunately shipping rates are not something that I can control.

Everything that I ship is carefully wrapped to ensure that the items arrive at their new homes safely. All boxes will be labeled as fragile in multiple places. It is extremely rare, but packages do occasionally arrive damaged. If your package is damaged in transit, please let me know right away. If this does occur, you may return the item(s) for repair or a refund.

All customs duties are to be paid by the buyer. All orders will be marked as merchandise, I cannot mark them as gifts as it is illegal. Please note, it is the responsibility of the buyer to be aware of the customs duties and limits of their country as they are the one importing the item. I'm very sorry, but there's no way for me to know the customs duties for every country in the world.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with an item that you have received, you may return it unused and undamaged in the original packaging within 7 days of Recorded Delivery for a refund. Please note that shipping costs cannot be refunded. Refunds cannot be issued until the returned item or items have been received.

 They buyer is responsible for all shipping costs, including the cost of return shipping.

This refund policy does not cover special commissions for new items or custom made orders, this includes items that have been tweaked or altered by size or color. Please review all measurements carefully.

Cancellations: If you need to cancel an order, please let me know as soon as possible so that I can accommodate other orders. Please note that Custom Orders cannot be cancelled or refunded once I have begun work on them.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please understand that I work over 60 per week, I am extremely pressed for time. As a result, I am unable provide tutorials, process photos or detailed information on the materials or the construction of items in my shop or things that I have made for use my own personal costumes.
