Summation by the Sea

Summation - the process of adding things together;
because, together, we are equal to more than the sum
of our parts. We are one. We are whole.

by the Sea- we are lovers of the beach, the sea, the
sky, the sand between our toes.

Summation by the Sea is a collective gathering of
makers, artists, creatives, wives, mothers...friends and vintage lovers.

Owner of Summation is also a Reiki Practitioner. Interested in knowing more about that? Send her message.
Kim is quick to respond.

Returns and exchanges
Most items, EXCEPT Personalized Orders & Furniture, may be returned for a refund of the item price. Shipping costs are not refundable. The item must be returned within 14 days of receipt in unused condition.
Personalized items are Final Sale. Buyer pays the shipping. Furniture is Final Sale. I do my absolute best to take proper pictures and give accurate descriptions.

We work off of the Etsy Invoice when you make a purchase. This is in the "Notes to Seller" section at checkout. It is your responsibility to make sure that your names, for personalized items, are correct. Kim WILL NOT send a new personalized item out if it is your mistake in spelling a specific name, place on your receipt..
Etsy is one facet of our business....we do not have the time to cross reference convos and receipts from when you initially contacted us....The Etsy Invoice should have all pertinent information in it! Make sure that YOUR information is correct when placing your order.
I am happy to accept Paypal and credit cards via Etsy's Checkout.

Please pay for your Purchase within 3 days of buying.
If I do not receive payment within 3 days, your order will canceled.
If you need more time, just let me know and I'm happy to wait a bit longer.
I ship USPS First Class or Priority in the US or First Class International to Canada & other countries. I will refund the difference if I am off by $2 or more in my shipping estimates. If you prefer to have insurance or delivery confirmation, please contact me and I will adjust the invoice accordingly.

All items will be shipped in recycled bubble wrap, tissue paper or brown paper and possibly in reused boxes, if I have a box that will work and it is in good condition, I'll use it. I make every effort to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle all that I come across.

Most orders are Custom unless you are purchasing a size and color that is specifically listed, therefore please allow up to 5-7 days for the item to be completed. Your order will be shipped out within 1 day of being done.

Once the package leaves my hands...there isn't much that I can do about it. If you'd like me to add delivery confirmation, I can. I usually do on larger orders. Please friends, understand that I work as efficiently as I can, I get your items out in a most timely manner and I am about 99.9% accurate on how long it takes for a package to get from me to you based on where we each live. If you order a gift or a tote bag and you want it by a certain's my goal to get it to you. At the same time, I can't do anythging about it not arriving in time if USPS or UPS is late. I hope you understand this. If a package does not arrive in time...I can not make a new item and ship it out next day air at my expense (because it isn't my fault that it didn't make it). Please let me know if you need it ASAP and you're shipping etsimates can be adjusted for USPS Express Mail and 2nd Day or overnight UPS. Thanks for understanding!
