Sweet 'n Feminine Shabby Cottage Chic Clay Flower Sculptures~Vintage Decor~Art, Craft and Flower Supplies

Hello and welcome to afloralaffair where you will find one-of-a-kind, original, uniquely-handmade clay flower sculptures for wall and table decor made from artist clay. If you love soft, feminine, sweet and romantic floral home decor, you're in the right place. At afloralaffair you will also find lovely items from my own personal vintage collection, as well as my original artwork and art, craft and flower supplies.

The technique I developed to create the sculptures is quite a lengthy process, but I feel their beauty makes it all worthwhile. I specialize in decorative home accents featuring flowers, fruit, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, animals and other things one might find in a garden since these are things I hold dear to my heart.

My European-style sculptures have the look and feel of porcelain bisque. Once a piece has cured, it is hand painted in delicate harmonizing tones and signed. My sculptures are fabulous conversation pieces and marvelous for gift giving. My artwork may be found throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia and is showcased in several Florida gift shops.

From 1987 to 2009, I enjoyed exhibiting my award-winning paintings and clay flower sculptures at art shows in Florida where I was blessed with numerous loyal patron/friends. I am no longer able to exhibit at the shows and will miss seeing the joy on the faces of those who would find an item they loved and couldn't live without. However, Etsy is a fabulous marketplace showcasing marvelous handmade arts, crafts and vintage items where I have been meeting so many lovely people.

I hope you enjoy visiting my shop and return often to view my newly-listed items. I am always available to answer any questions you may have or to discuss having a custom piece made just for you.

Have a beautiful day and please remember to smell the flowers along the way :)

~♥~ PAYMENT- CREDIT CARDS, DEBIT CARDS, eCHECKS and ETSY GIFT CARDS
afloralaffair accepts credit cards, debit cards, echecks and gifts cards through Etsy. Mailed checks and money orders are not accepted by afloralaffair at this time.

~♥~ FLORIDA STATE SALES TAX
Florida residents will be charged 7.5% at Checkout ~ 6% for Florida State Sales Tax plus 1.5% representing the highest County Surtax in Florida. You will receive a refund through Etsy for any overage of the County Surtax you were charged.
Shipping
~♥~ SHIPPING
Please refer to each listing page for specific detailed shipping information for shipments within the United States. For international shipments, please refer to the International Shipments Section below.

Generally the listed Shipping Cost for shipments within the United States may be for the furthest destination point from central Florida, the shipping origin. Any overage over $2.50 of the actual USPS charges will be refunded to you through Etsy or PayPal. For International Shipments, please see the International Shipments section below.

Items are usually shipped the safest and most economical way via USPS First Class Package Service, USPS Priority Mail or USPS Parcel Select (formerly Parcel Post) for larger/heavier packages.

The listed Shipping Costs include USPS Postage, Insurance for Priority Mail Packages or if included in the listing, Delivery Confirmation and various Packaging and Handling charges.

~♥~ INSURANCE
Priority Mail packages are automatically insured up to $100. First Class Package Service and Parcel Select are not insured unless otherwise stated in an item listing. Please refer to each listing to determine whether or not insurance is included in the listed shipping cost.

If insurance is not included, I highly recommend that you opt to insure your package since it offers peace of mind by covering losses, thefts or damaged items at a relatively low cost. Please refer to afloralaffair's Refund Policy below.

If you decide to have your package insured, to avoid any additional processing fees, please contact me prior to checking out so that I may edit the listing including the Insurance charge.

~♥~ PERSONAL SHIPPING QUOTE
If you are interested in knowing what the Shipping Cost would be to your particular shipping destination prior to making a purchase, please feel free to contact me for a personal quote - name of city and zip code required.

~♥~ SHIPPING COST OVERAGE REFUND
A 3% processing fee may be applied to each refund.

~♥~ SHIPPING TIMELINE
In most instances, items will be shipped within 24 to 72 hours of receipt of payment excluding weekends, holidays, "Acts of God", illness, a dreaded computer crash, loss of internet service or during the Christmas holiday season. afloralaffair will not be held responsible for shipping delays of any kind.

~♥~ POSTAL DELAYS, FAILURES, THEFTS, LOSSES, INCORRECT ADDRESS
SUBMISSIONS
afloralaffair will not be held responsible for postal delays, failures, thefts, losses or incorrect shipping address submissions. The buyer must provide the correct address at the time of checkout. Therefore, if for any reason USPS is unable to deliver a package and it is returned to afloralaffair, the buyer will be required to pay for all reshipping, packaging and handling costs.

~♥~ PACKING
All items are packed with the greatest of care adhering to USPS guidelines. At the time of sale and packing, all of my handmade creations are in perfect condition and all of my personal vintage items are in the same condition as stated in the item listing. I will ship items together to save on postage only when I feel it is safe to do so. When a USPS Priority Mail box is deemed to be an improper size to safely pack an item, a recycled box will be used and, at times, clean recycled items such as newspaper and plastic bags are used in packing to cushion an item.

~♥~ CHANGE IN SHIPPING ADDRESS
If you would like your purchase shipped to a different location, please provide the address at checkout under the section entitled "Note to Etsy Store".

~♥~ NOTE TO FLORIDA RESIDENTS
Florida residents have the option of picking up their purchased item directly from me at my residence in Florida at a mutually-convenient day and time. Please contact me prior to checking out if you choose to pick up your item so that I may edit the listing removing the shipping charge thereby avoiding any extra processing fees.

~♥~ INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS
Items will be shipped internationally via USPS First Class International Package Service or USPS Priority Mail International in either a USPS Flat Rate box, USPS non Flat Rate box, Recycled Box or Bubble Mailer whichever is deemed to be the proper size to safely pack the item. Shipping Costs including packing and handling will be those given at checkout by Etsy and there will be no refunds for any overages over the actual USPS shipping costs no matter what the listing may state. Any mention in the listings regarding refunds for overage in shipping costs is for shipments within the United States only.

Please be advised that import duties, taxes and all customs charges are the sole responsibility of the buyer and are not included in the item price or shipping charges. The customs forms will reflect the actual purchase price and the item will not be marked as merchandise not as a gift. afloralaffair will bear no responsibility for items lost, stolen, damaged, delivered in an untimely fashion or not delivered for any reason or for any other problems due to international customs or post offices. Please note that International shipments cannot be tracked and since afloralaffair has no control over the length of time it takes to deliver a package internationally, afloralaffair will not be held liable for untimely or undelivered packages.

afloralaffair will not be held responsible for international postal delays or undelivered packages for any reason including postal strikes, failures, thefts, losses, damages or incorrect shipping address submissions. The buyer must provide the correct address at the time of checkout. Therefore, if your package is not able to be delivered for any reason and is returned to me, the buyer will be required to pay all reshipping, handling and packaging costs.

Any and all of afloralaffair's policies listed herein shall apply to International orders including, but not limited to, Refunds, Returns, Credits, Exchanges, Lost or Damaged Items and Order Cancellations.
Refunds and Exchanges
~♥~ REFUNDS - RETURNS - CREDITS - EXCHANGES - LOST OR DAMAGED ITEMS
Though I am fairly confident that you will be delighted with your purchase, I strongly recommend that you ask any questions you may have prior to making a purchase.

afloralaffair finds it necessary to make "All Sales Final" and, therefore, no Refunds, Returns, Credits or Exchanges will be given for any reason.

I do my best to make note of any defects; however, at times some minor defects might escape my eye or seem to be irrelevant to the overall beauty of an item; and since beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, my vintage and all other items are sold “As Is” and are not returnable.

In instances where afloralaffair has a listing for multiple similar items where there may be slight variations in color, shape or size which are not shown in the photographs, these items are also sold "As Is" and no Refunds, Returns, Credits or Exchanges will be given for any reason.

Since afloralaffair has no control over a package once it has been shipped, if the buyer has opted out of insuring the package, afloralaffair will not be held responsible for any loss or damage.

In the event afloralaffair agrees to accept the return of an item for whatever reason, the item must be returned to me in the same safe manner in which it was originally shipped and it must arrive in the same condition as when first shipped to the buyer by afloralaffair. Any and all shipping expenses in connection with returning an item to afloralaffair will be borne solely by the buyer. Deducted from the refund will be a $2.50 restocking fee, the original USPS shipping costs to the buyer plus handling costs, package fees and Etsy transaction and processing fees in connection with the order.

~♥~ ORDER CANCELLATION REFUNDS

Order cancellations must be received by afloralaffair within 30 minutes of placing an order to receive a full refund. If an order is cancelled after this 30-minute timeframe and the order has been processed, the buyer may be held responsible for a packing and handling fee up to $3.00 which may be deducted from the refund.

Purchase of an item confirms that you have read each listing in its entirety and accept afloralaffair's Policies.
Additional policies and FAQs
~♥~ CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Caring for my sculpted creations is quite easy. An informative brochure with Care Instructions is included with each purchase which is particularly helpful when the home decoration is given as a gift. Each piece has been sealed to protect against humidity; however, the sculptures are intended for indoor use only and should be kept out of direct sunlight. Care of the sculptures should be taken as you would with any fine collectible and kept out of the reach of very young children

~♥~ REPAIRS
If your sculpture is ever in need of repair, you may be relieved to know that, in most instances, I am able to restore an item to its original state. However, buyer would be responsible for the cost in repairing the item, as well as the shipping, handling and packaging costs.

~♥~ CUSTOM ORDERS
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or requests you may have. If you would prefer different colors or flowers or have a particular idea for a floral home decoration, I may be able to make a custom piece just for you.

~♥~ PHOTOGRAPHS
When taking my photographs, I am diligent to show the true colors and likeness of each piece. However, please be aware that color variations may occur from one computer monitor to another.

~♥~ GUARANTEES
afloralaffair does not give any guarantees or warranties on any item.

~♥~ PRIVACY
afloralaffair is committed to protecting your privacy and will not sell or disclose any information that identifies you to a third party.

~♥~ POLICY CHANGES
afloralaffair reserves the right to make any changes to its policies at any time and changes will be posted.

~♥~ Purchase of an item confirms that you have read and accept afloralaffair's Policies.
