Announcement   NEWS FLASH,
I am planning to transform my sewn items in my shop into ready to ship items. For now, I will add “ready to ship” to the listings which I have on hand and ready to go. I do not have too many finished so I will still be taking orders that will be make after they are ordered. The items that do not say “ready to ship” will take up to three weeks to ship. Once these listings do sell, they will not be re-listed until I make one to fill it. Just search “ready to ship” to see what is ready to go!

I hope to be able to take on custom orders, for small changes, like snaps instead of zippers, but that will come with understanding that the item is not made yet, and hopefully the customer will understand that it will take time to finish.

The reason for this is that I feel my shop is getting too busy. I am making things as fast as I can. I am making these changes to ease the frustration for the long wait times. Also, I want to be able to add new products, designs, and new fabric prints, and keep things fresh.

My shop will still be super nerdy awesome sauce, hopefully even better, since new things will be fun for both me and my customers. My hand stamped things will not change, and will ship within three working days.

About

Sci-Fi makes me happy

I started this shop a while ago, it has morphed quite a bit over time, into a place for sci-fi geeks who love it all! I don't sell sci-fi stuff becuase I think it is what people want to buy, I sell it and make it because it is what I love. I have watched every episode of every show that I sell things from. I am rasing my son to be a brainy sci-fi kid as well, with a large vocabulary.

My messenger and book bags are one of my passions. I am always looking for new material from the designers at spoonflower. They make some truely awesome stuff, and they make a commision for all the material I do buy. Everyone there has been so nice, resizing things to make sure I can fit it on my bags.

The hand stamped jewelry started as a hobby that quickly got expensive, so I started making it for others and selling it. I do go to craft shows and make it right there where the customer is able to look though all my charms and metal and design something right on the spot. I take what is refered to as my leather bucket, which is all my pieces of recycled leather belts for people to choose thier own for thier bracelets.

I love recycling things, like the belts, which makes me spend alot of time in thrift stores, not that I don't like it. I found a Mr. Spock mug for only a quarter!

I love to make interesting, fun, and usually colorful jewelry. Knowing my jewelry has made someone happy makes my day. I want all my customers to be happy as well. If there is anything I can do to make your transaction with me better, let me know.

Returns and exchanges
I want everyone who buys a piece of my work to be happy with what they bought. If you are not, I will refund your money, minus the shipping. If there is anything I can do to make your piece work better for you (example change a clasp, shorten a piece, ect.) I will be glad to, but the customer will be responsible for the shipping back to me, and I will take care of the return shipping. If a piece breaks and you would like me to fix it, I would be willing to do so as well with the same shipping arrangement. I want happy customers.
Payment
I accept paypal and direct credit card payments through etsy. Orders will be shipped when payment is confirmed. If an order is canceled before I mail it, that is ideal. I know things do not always work out that way. If it ships before it is canceled, I will refund the money when I receive the piece back.
Shipping
I ship with the U.S. Post Office.

Hand stamped orders will be shipped within 1-2 days of payment. Unless it is ordered late on a Friday, then it will be shipped on the following monday.

Sewn items are made after payment is recieved, and the shipping dates posted on each item is correct, running to the later date stated.

International customers are responsible for any customs charges incurred when your package arrives in your country.

The most important thing I can stress is that if you need your item by a certain date, contact me ahead of time, to see if I can get it to you by then. I want everyone to be happy, but I have a busy shop, and I am the only one working in it, making everything myself, so it does take time, but I swear every piece is made with love.
