Note from shop owner We will be on vacation until July 1, 2011 so that I may move the shop and studio. I was hoping to keep the shop open during the move but it has taken so much more of my time than I anticipated. Already purchased orders will go out this week. If there is something that you absolutely need, please convo me and I will do my best to make special arrangements. Thank you for your support!

I offer full bolt pricing on many of the trims in my shop. Although I maintain a large inventory, I do not always have full extra bolts in backstock. they may have to be specially ordered for you which will delay shipping until their arrival. I also can special order many trims that I do regularly carry in stock and am happy to see if I can locate a particular trim for you.

When ordering multiple yards, I make every effort to give you one continuous piece, however it does not always come off of the bolt that way, the manufactures often send several pieces to make up an entire bolt. Anything under two yards I will definately send a single piece but over 2 yards I cannot guarantee it. I will include extra to make up piecing. I make every effort to send an unpieced cut to you, but I have to sell it off of the bolt as it would be impossible to store various pieces and lengths of each ribbon available. Please see my shop policies for FAQ. After reviewing my shop policies if you need to contact me, please email me at TheTinTiara [!at] yahoo.com as I do not always get the convo notification.

When using vintage I use every effort to recycle the best pieces, but due to the fact that they have had a previous life, there may be variations, or flaws. This history only adds to the character and uniqueness of the piece!

Most items ship first class or priority mail, depending on the weight of the item. If you need special arrangements, or are on a specific time schedule please convo me. I usually ship within 5-7 business days M-F, I cannot ship during the weekends. During the holidays it can take a little longer, if you are in a hurry, please convo me (before purchase!) so that I can get it out to you as quickly as possible. If your order is something I do not normally carry or for full bolts, there can be additional wait time before shipping if I have to special order it in for you. If you are on a time schedule, please convo me before ordering so I can give you a time estimate, or make special arrangements. I make every effort to ship them out immediately after their arrival. If you have questions about shipping charges please see the additional information section on this page.

***Please also note, I ship to addresses listed on your order as the shipping address. If you are purchasing this for someone else, there is a section in the order process to enter their order information. If you have moved, you need to change your address in etsy (My Account-Settings-Addresses) I do not always see a note left in the comments about an address, and my shipping software is integrated with shipping address listed on the order, so even if I do see it, I have to go into my shipping program, manually remove your old address, create a new label, enter your new address information...all of which takes extra time, and slows the order processing. Please be on top of your own address corrections.
Additional policies and FAQs
I want to clarify my shipping and handling charges. If you purchase stock from my inventory directly from the shop, charges are as they are listed on your invoice, I do not refund any perceieved overages after the sale. HOWEVER, if you would like to save on your shipping charges, please instead convo me a list of items you wish from the shop and the quanity of each item. I will then create a custom listing for you with shipping charges based on your location. It always works out most favorably for you to do it this way. I do not like to overcharge people for shipping charges but there are a few things that some do not realize or understand. Etsy charges a flat .20 per item listing fee, this is a great deal if you are selling a $5.00 or especially a $50.00 item. If you are selling .40 per yard ribbon, not so great. I could make my listings for multiple yards only, so you would have to purchase 3 or 5 yards of a ribbon per sale, but I have so many customers that want a big variety and prefer just a yard or so. If someone buys 10 items from me out of my shop, I am thrilled , but the transaction fees alone will be $2.00, and if that ribbon is .40 per yard that is half of the sale. Therefore I include my shipping, fee, and packaging in the shipping part of the transaction. This gives me the option to adjust the shipping when I am convo'd for a sale rather than the price of the individual items. People looking at my shop can see at a glance what the cost of the product will be, it is a constant. I hope this answers any question you might have, but if not, please feel free to convo me :o)

If you want multiple yards of something please convo me for a custom listing as stated in all of my listings. If you purchase an item and then send me a message stating you want more yardage, I will cancel the order and contact you to create a custom listing. It just becomes too complicated to keep track of otherwise. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

I value your business and am always happy to work with you! My convo response time can also follow my shipping schedule 3-4 business days. I make every effort to get back to you sooner and in most cases I do. However, I am a one woman show and when I am packing orders, I am not reading convos. If you need to get ahold of me immediately, please email me @ thetintiara [!at] yahoo.com.
