A Creative Original

I know that I should be working in a museum or someplace like that, but I could never toe the line enough to make it as a professional. Instead, I like to think of my shop as an ongoing exhibition of Caroline's Personal Collection.

I love learning, collecting and giving. I guess that's sort of how I view my Etsy store. The goal of my shop is to share my discoveries and help you find the perfect gift, for yourself or for someone else, for a price that you can afford.

I take PayPal or money order. If you cannot pay within three days, please contact me. I will extend payment time to a week if you need it for some reason or other. Communication is key!
I ship worldwide. It is hard to get shipping amounts just right, especially for shipping internationally. If I have left the international shipping amounts unlisted it is because it is hard to determine the shipping cost everywhere internationally. Please convo me for a quote. I combine shipping, and again it is hard to get that always right. If you are buying two like items that look like they can be shipped for less than my quote, convo me and I will adjust the shipping charge. I offer free shipping on a number of lighter, easier to ship items. If my item title offers free shipping it is free shipping worldwide, UNLESS I request you to convo me for shipping quote for international in the item description.

I pack everything very carefully. Everything I send is protected with bubble. In particular, I am sure to use styrofoam peanuts and/or or styrofoam boards to protect ceramics. I am starting to "double box" more and more.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be 100% happy with your purchase. Please convo me if you have any questions, concerns, or problems. If you are unhappy with a purchase, we can work out a return or an exchange. Please don't leave negative or neutral feedback before letting me know if you are unhappy with an item!
