Announcement   AFFARE---AF-FA-RE-- A DEAL!

Benvenuto all'AFFARE

I'm so happy you're taking the time to browse through my store. I am a passionate American artist & collector living in the lovely city of Crema, Italy.

Having travelled all over the world for almost my whole life, the beauty of quality hand made artisanal pieces has always caught my eye. Now settled here in Italy, I love finding treasures from the history of this wonderful country. My goal is to share this treasure trove of Italian vintage finds and handmade items with clients all over the world who want that taste of "La Dolce Vita" but are not as fortunate to visit or live here.

You'll find carefully selected pieces in my store, that have either been created by me or vintage items collected by me (I love recycling--making old things new!) so take a look around and perhaps you'll find something you like.

Aside from the vintage pieces, everything else has been handmade by me, so no two pieces are the same, and may include small imperfections--but hey that's the beauty of handmade things right?

Please read my policies prior to buying and feel free to convo me with any questions you may have. I am more than willing to combine shipping or look for alternative methods of delivery, but please convo me before purchasing.

Ci vediamo presto!

Another beautiful plate! Looks so great in my old world kitchen. Thank you for getting to me quickly and well wrapped with no damage and coming all the way from Italy.

This is such a fun plate of the fish and vegetables. Can't find anything like this in the U.S. and I like conversation starters for accessories when I have people over. I've got these on top of my kitchen cabinet with plants, rooster, serving tray, Italian pottery, looks very interesting! Packaged perfect and arrived very fast. Thank you!

Absolutely love my plates! They came really fast in less than 5 days and were in perfect condition! I have a Old World kitchen and I'm putting these above my cabinets with plants, ceramic rooster, etc. Looks very nice! Thank you!

Shipping
All pieces are being shipped from Italy. I am happy to ship Internationally.

I'll ship your items within three working days after payment is received. You will receive a confirmation email, when your item is shipped.

We usually use the Italian Postal service's "Posta Priorita" (Airmail) in order to keep the costs down. However, this does not allow one to track the shipment. If you prefer that I send it registered with a signature required, convo me for the cost. If you need a faster service, (UPS or DHL) insurance or other information then please contact us and we will arrange it.

I'll gladly ship to any country in the world. Timing will depend on different national post services and cannot be specified to the exact day. Some places will take longer to get to than others but generally goods will arrive within 2 weeks.


**In some countries, taxes, tariffs & custom duties may be applied, this is at the expense of the buyer. If your delivery country charges customs or import duties - these will be charges once the package reaches the destination country. You will have to pay these charges. Unfortunately we have no control over the charges and cannot inform you what they will be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country – so if you have any questions regarding this, please contact your local customs office for further information.
Refunds and Exchanges
I prefer not to do returns or exchanges, but will look at each case individually. Please make sure you want the art before you commit to buy. In case of shipping related damage, buyer is required to notify me within 3 days of receiving your purchase for any refund or replacement to occur. Unfortunately, I will not refund the cost of shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
I would like to extend a hearty GRAZIE MILLE for taking an interest in my work. As a customer you are very special to me and I want to ensure your satisfaction.
