About heartshakestudios

On Etsy since 2011

Following our passions wherever they take us.

Way back in 2011, Chris and I were a year out of college and living in a tiny studio apartment in Salem, Massachusetts. We loved searching all the local thrift stores and estate sales for vintage treasures, but our small space was soon way too full, so to avoid becoming hoarders, we decided to start selling some of our finds, and our Etsy shop was born. Our little shop has chugged along, through various job changes and moves, as we developed our style (and vastly improved our photos!). Since then I have taken over the management of our shop, which has grown to include some of my handmade products and artwork.

In 2018, we moved from Ojai, California to beautiful Colorado Springs, CO, where Chris is a photography and film teacher at a private high school, and I fulfilled my dream of opening my own own brick and mortar store! The Heartshake Studios flagship shop features a curated selection of gifts and home decor, as well as my art, handcrafted goods, and vintage wares. My studio is in the back of the shop, so I can continue to create new work and sell it all in one place!

Returns and exchange details
Once an item has shipped, we are unable to refund shipping costs.

For handmade items and paper goods, please contact us within a week of receiving your item if you are unhappy with your purchase and wish to make a return. We will determine refunds on an individual basis, and return shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer. Items must be returned in their original condition. Please do not send items back before contacting us first!

All vintage items are previously used, and the condition of each item is described in detail in the item description. All vintage items are sold as is, and sales are final. If you have any questions about the item condition after reading the description, just send us a message and we will do our best to clarify.

If an item arrives broken or damaged, please contact us immediately with photos, and we will figure out a solution on an individual basis. Please save all the packaging, as we may need photos of that as well to file an insurance claim.
Our accepted payment methods are Paypal, Credit Card, or Etsy Gift Card.

If you would prefer to use a money order, please contact us and we will discuss the option with you. To use a money order, you must meet these conditions:
-We only accept USPS Money Orders.
-The item must ship to a United States address.
-We will only ship the item once we receive the payment, and we will set a deadline for receiving the money order in a timely manner.
We do our best to keep shipping as low as possible, but shipping can just be expensive because of the size or weight of an item.

We are transitioning to calculated shipping in our Etsy shop, so shipping costs on most items should change based on your location, and you will have the option to choose faster shipping methods!

Most vintage and pre-made handmade items are shipped via USPS Parcel Select or Priority Mail with tracking and insurance within 1-3 business days of purchase. Lightweight items are shipped via USPS First Class Mail, and items shipped internationally are sent via USPS First Class International Parcel. Shipping with Parcel Select allows us to keep costs as low as possible, but it does take more time, so if you need to receive your item sooner, please select a faster service such as Priority Mail.

On international orders, there may be additional customs costs for which the buyer is solely responsible.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders for handmade antlers and painted skulls are available; please send us a message with your ideas!

We almost always have only one of each vintage item listed in our shop in stock. If an item is already sold that you are interested in, feel free to contact us so we know to keep an eye out for you when we are vintage shopping, but know that it is often unlikely that we will be able to fulfill your request.

We welcome wholesale requests for notepads, cards, and art prints! Small wholesale orders of antlers and/or painted skulls may be available for the right retailer. Please message us with your request and a link to your shop website, and we will get back to you with rates and availability.
