Announcement   Band shirt reconstructions are moving to a new shop:
www.darkstormdesign.etsy.com

Organic, bamboo and scrap fabric clothing, pillows and more. I use a lot of animal prints, and mix it in with bamboo fabrics, which are incredibly comfortable.

*I ship from both Canada and the US.*

I am actually in Canada, but I also am able to ship USPS by taking my packages to a company that drives them over the border from me. I ship out USPS parcels Mon/Wed/Fri.

Ebay: www.stores.ebay.com/DarkStormClothing

Items come from a smoke-free home. I do have a cat. I try to keep her away from my fabric, although she does sometimes sneak into the room. If you'd like me to rewash things right before shipping, just leave a note to seller.

About

Heavy Metal & Death Metal Women's Clothing & Decor - Inspired By Mathematics

This shop is a one-person operation - I do all the designing, sewing and modeling! The main focus of my shop is death metal and heavy metal band shirt reconstructions, although I do sometimes make other items as well. For the most part, the bands you see in my shop are a reflection of what I listen to.

A few years ago, I decided to teach myself how to sew so that I could have clothing that fit me for the bands I actually listened to. I enjoy the challenge of figuring things out myself without just reading instructions or watching a tutorial telling me what to do. I am also a PhD student in mathematics, and have used a lot of my knowledge from topology in designing items.

I like to change things up, so the types of items I sell have and will continue to change over time. I like to try to come up with new things I can reconstruct metal band shirts into other than just clothing. I have done some comforters, pillow cases and stockings, and will continue to find new things to make!

Payment
Payment is due upon purchase. GST/HST is charged for Canadian residents (13% in Ontario; 15% in NB, NS, PEI, Newfoundland; 5% everywhere else).

Reserved Items:
A non-refundable downpayment will be required for any reserved items. If you are not sure if you'll be able to pay, please do not request to reserve an item!
Please realize that I have this requirement because I have had several people reserve multiple items only to back out after a month or more.
Shipping
I am located in Canada, but I can ship with both Canada Post and USPS. I usually go with whichever option is cheaper (oddly, this may sometimes be Canada Post for US buyers, or USPS for Canadian buyers, if you are far from Niagara Falls/Hamilton) - if you want me to use a specific one, please let me know before purchasing so I can get an accurate shipping price for you.

Note on how USPS shipping works:
In order to ship USPS, I drop off the parcels in Ontario with a company that then drives them over the border to ship at a USPS location. Parcels go out Mon/Wed/Fri with this company, so any orders placed after noon EST on these days will not be able to go out that day.
There will be a return address in the US on these parcels, but do not ship to it (it is not my location, but the shipping company) - any returns need to be shipped to my Canadian address.

Pillows/large items will be condensed (packed tightly or packed in a vacuum storage bag) to save on shipping. They will retain their shape shortly after unpacking.

Delivery Times:
CANADA: Expedited Parcel 1-7 business days
*If you are purchasing something thin that can go through lettermail and would prefer it shipped that way, leave a note on checkout and the excess shipping will be refunded.

US: USPS First Class 2-5 business days; USPS Priority (2-4 business days)

INTERNATIONAL: Canada Post Air Mail/Light Packet 6-10 business days

**IF YOU NEED YOUR ORDER BY A SPECIFIC DATE, PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE PURCHASING**
If you require tracking, please contact before ordering - some default services include tracking, but some do not.
Refunds and Exchanges
To avoid being in a situation where you need to return an item, please read the description carefully and if anything is unclear or if you have any questions at all, make sure to contact me before purchasing! If you need more measurements or pictures, just ask!

Returns will be accepted within 14 days of item being received (with the exception of custom items - no returns will be accepted on custom orders - if you see the word CUSTOM in the listing title, it is a custom order).
Item must be shipped back in unused condition - no refunds will be granted if the item is returned damaged, or scented (meaning don't let it sit in a smoke-filled house for days, or spray it with any perfume - these can't always be washed out). The buyer will pay for return shipping, and original shipping will not be refunded. Exceptions may be made if I have made an error (I do my best to list everything accurately, so this hopefully shouldn't happen).
Additional policies and FAQs
Items come from a smoke-free home. I do have a cat. I try to keep her away from my fabric, although she does sometimes sneak into the room. If you'd like me to rewash things right before shipping, just leave a note to seller.
