It is my intention to fully honor the handicraft art.

The patterns and concepts I use are entirely original. In fact, most of my patterns will not be duplicated! I strive to make things that are clever, novel, durable, innovative, and just plain lovely.

Unless I explicitly mention otherwise, all of my items are meticulously made by hand---fingers raw, poked, and all. There's nary a sewing machine in sight!

Because my creations are so labor-intensive, my pricing reflects the time it has taken to complete each one. I figure roughly $10 per hour, which is the working wage where I live.

I find myself leaning toward pure and natural materials as often as possible. I also love to incorporate found objects, as I am a bit of a magpie!

There will likely be man-made products amidst my listings, however, to keep overhead and prices lower. As business grows and per request, I look forward to making beautiful things out of sustainable materials.

All items are made in a generally smoke-free, pet-free home.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
At this time, I am unable to offer refund or replacement for items lost/damaged in shipping.

While I have no set return policy in place, if you would like to return an item for a complete refund, please convo me with your particular story and we can go from there. You would be responsible for all related shipping costs unless otherwise agreed upon.
Currently, I am set-up to receive payment via PayPal. If you would like to pay with personal check or with an exchange of some sort, please convo me and we can discuss it.
Your item will be shipped domestically via USPS Priority Mail. It should arrive within two or three days of when I send it. I will typically ship packages on a Friday or Saturday.

My shipping prices per item are accurate, but not precise. If there is a significant discrepancy, I will refund it at my discretion. If you are ordering more than one item at a time, I will promptly refund any amount that you have paid in excess of the actual cost of shipping.

For international orders and special requests, such as overnight or delivery confirmation, please convo me accordingly.
Additional policies and FAQs
I endeavor to make all of my creatures and treasures with great care and attention to craft. I would, therefore, like to offer a repair policy. I guarantee one free repair during up to three months from the date of purchase, not to include the cost of shipping, should your item not hold up to typical use.

I heartily welcome consignment and custom orders. I will address these on a case by case basis via Conversation or Alchemy.
