About

The Smile Emporium-Assisting A Smile To Your Face.

HELLO-Welcome to you
Here is the story of how working from home became a reality for me.
I had worked in welfare with disadvantaged women and was taking a year off to study.During that year in our 18th year of marriage, with 3 teenage children, our beautiful surprize baby was welcomed into a full house. With such an age gap between the siblings 17, 15, 13 and then baby, we felt making them share a room with the baby or each other would be a bit of a shock.So our house grew as well. While doing the owner builder extension to accommodate everyone, that's a new baby, 3 teenagers and major DYI extensions we had the roof off for 3 weeks, so that meant no TV aerial. I was never a big TV watcher but having it as not an option was great.I started learning new skills and after the roof went back on we decided not to put the aerial up again,(much to the consternation of our 3 teenagers at the time)
I mention this story as it shows how life's circumstances can sometimes lead to fabulous unexpected adventures to be embraced.
WHAT`S IN THE NAME?
The Smile Emporium as a name was decided when my husband and myself went out for tea. This experience included a hot Thai meal, the waiter being busy and no water on the table.
In between recovering from mouthfuls of curry laden food(really tasty- but hot) my husband and I were brainstorming names for the shop which really made me think- what do I want to achieve?It was easy when put like that. I want people to smile.
HOW TO MAKE PEOPLE SMILE?
CONNECTING PEOPLE TO INSPIRATIONS
My previous work in welfare has influenced my choice to do quote/image jewellery and spoons.I see the link in obtaining a better quality of life when one is connected with the resources needed.
I understand different people take inspiration from different sources.So you will see a wide range of quotes,yet all relay a positive message regardless of the troubled life the author may or may not have led. Maybe its because the thoughts produced can sometimes come from suffering and the the deepest part of them is reaching out to make sense of things.
I am inspired by a compassionate man known as Jesus.I no longer attend church and find great freedom in living my life by one simple rule "only kindness matters". I am a reader who is open to learning more about living compassionately.This includes understanding that my spirituality isn't the only way of finding peace and living life well.
BUTTON JEWELLERY-A JOYFUL DEPARTURE FROM SOCIETIES EXCEPTATIONS
I find great joy in sourcing unique buttons and turning them into jewellery pieces.The button earrings/bobby pins are created from a part of me that appreciates good humour and joyfully departing from societies expectations.
The buttons are simple objects so humble in their everyday use. Its the simple things in life that are beautiful.Im interested and have been experimenting with code jewellery, where the buttons tell a story.Codes I have made necklaces for are "when pigs fly" "plane and pearl" knitting necklace and brooch and "baby shower" necklace.
Bow Tie Scarves
I find knitting is a productive thing I can do that relaxes me. I have a special interest in natural fibres. The latest Ive tried is 75% wool 25 % soya bean fibre.
Joy to you
Debbie

EXPECTED POSTAGE DELIVERY TIMES AND TRACKING OPTIONS

CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE AUSTRALIA:
I have found on average delivery time from Australia to an International destination is 2 1/2 weeks from the postage date. BUT-IF YOU ARE PURCHASING THIS AS A GIFT for a certain date it is wise to ALLOW 3 - 4 WEEKS from date of postage to allow for postage delays that can be seasonal and not within control of the seller.
POSTAGE IS STANDARD AIRMAIL WITHOUT TRACKING.

ADD ON TRACKING OPTIONS
* TRACKED-OVERSEAS customers- $21.00AUD the delivery time is the same as standard postage but it has tracking from lodgement of the parcel in the sellers country to delivery. To purchase the tracking option choose tracking instead of standard.
*EXPRESS COURIER IS $56.05AUD it is quicker delivery in 2-4 work days and tracked.To purchase this choose express option on checkout.
*ALL POSTAGE PRICES ARE GENUINE CAN BE CHECKED ON THE AUSTRALIA POST WEBSITE. Here is the link

I value customer satisfaction.If a fault in the product has passed my notice and been sent to a customer I offer a full refund or replacement.Do not hesitate to contact me if you have a enquiry about this.

I make every effort to describe the product clearly, photograph it accurately.
Note that different computer screen settings that customers have will vary colours slightly.
If a customer has a concern about a product and would like a refund or replacement,It will be at my descresion about whether I ask the item to be returned.I would pay for return shipping if the problem was a mishap on my part.If not then the buyer is responsible for any return shipping fees.No returns/refunds on change of mind.
Returns will not be accepted after 40 days of the original order date.Given that International shipping is on average 2 1/2 weeks but can be up to 4 weeks then the 40 day time period is well within reasonable time for faults to be discovered.
