While SJ is Sleeping

When I became pregnant, my husband and I were faced with the dilemma of if I should go back to work after my leave was over or if I should stay home and raise my first child. I'm originally from Iowa, and had been in Illinois at that point for two years and had no family in the area. Would I continue to commute with my husband 40 minutes each way daily? Would our infant daughter commute with us and go to day care in the town where we worked? Or our home town and we'd be practically an hour away from her daily? There really wasn't much to discuss...I would leave my job computer programming - honestly good riddance.

Didn't take long until I was stir crazy. So WhileSJsSleeping was born - and it truly was while SJ was sleeping. Now it's more like while SJ has quiet time. Thankfully while she is awake she loves the hunt of a good treasure as well.

Thanks for taking all little time out to look around my shop. You'll find it has mainly things that remind me of being a child from the 80's. Make sure to check out my other Etsy shop 'Addicted2Thrift'. I opened it to contain more home decor, bedding, fabrics and tableware. I'm more than happy to combine shipping across shops. ❤❤❤

It is not my intention to make money of shipping - all shipping overages over $2.00 are refunded.

On rare and fragile orders I like to enjoy the peace of mind of having packages insured. This cost is included in my shipping price. I use ShipSaver to insure such packages.

All of my shipping quotes are estimates. Very rarely do I underestimate shipping fees, if that is the case usually I will cover the cost for you, if it is exorbitantly more than I had quoted then I will send a message and we can decide how to go from there.

Domestic Shipping: I ship out Monday - Saturday via USPS First Class, Priority and Parcel Select. Book orders ship Media Mail which takes approximately 1 week depending on location.
*Please inform me of all special shipping requests at the time of purchase. Express mail is available for an additional fee.

International Shipping: I do ship to more than the countries I have listed, I do not ship to all countries however, generally I ship to countries that my insurance provider will cover. I ship internationally through USPS International First Class and Priority (for packages over 4 pounds).
Custom forms are filled out with exact puchase information - I do not falsify prices or mark as a gift. International customers need to consider there may be additional taxes, duties or other fees required upon receipt of shipment. Such fees vary greatly from country to country and are based on an items value. Please check with your local post office for fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
Customer satisfaction is extremely important to me. If you are less than satisfied with your experience please contact me within 7 days of receiving your order. If an item is damaged in the mail please keep all packaging as it is needed to file a claim with my insurance provider. I will be happy to work out a refund or exchange. If you decide to return an item for a refund, you will be refunded your money as soon as I receive the item back in its original condition minus shipping costs. Please send me a message first to let me know you're returning something so I'll know to look for it in the mail.
