The Art Deco Inspired New Year’s Eve Party Hat never arrived. The product was ordered the third week of November. I corresponded with the merchant via email and she confirmed the order and confirmation of payment. Although I had had read the reviews about poor communication and consistent failure to meet customer expectations I felt her response was heartfelt and she had recommitted herself to her business. I was hopeful until 5PM on 12/31/14. No delivery was made prompting me to scramble for backup decorations for a table centerpiece. I had sent 2 emails requesting information about my order and she made the choice not to respond. Do not waste your time with the crepe confectionary. Her products are lovely but her business practices are unprofessional and dishonest.

E - I deeply regret that I was unable to provide you with a better experience; admittedly, I am struggling to maintain work here as I pursue a new career path for myself. I do pride myself in providing a quality product, as well as a pleasant and reliably customer service experience. I failed her with you because illness took me out for a number of weeks. You will receive a full refund, I assure you. In addition, please accept my deepest apologies, my intention was never to leave you in a lurch, nor give you a less than stellar experience. Your feedback is deeply regrettable, but appreciated. I wish you and yours a wonderful 2015!
From scrubs and stethoscopes to glass glitter and crepe paper...

Owner, Maker, Designer
welcome! my name is Kristen Thomas, owner, operator, and folk artist of The Crepe Confectionary. i am an intellectual by education and training, but a creative at heart...
i have always felt connected to old things...old homes, old books, old objects. i love that these things have history, and a story. i find my greatest inspiration in pieces and objects that have been well loved and tended to. my pieces are all dreamt up in my own head, and brought to life with my own hands. that means that every single piece is made with passion, soul, and attention to detail.
my creative drive comes from wanting to imbue each of my pieces, and those who will enjoy them, with that feeling of connection and joy that comes from respecting something that has been around a little longer than it should, just because someone loved it...my wish is the same for each of my creations -- that they become a cherished treasure for years to come!

i will always welcome any inquiries as to the source of my materials, as well as any concerns over longevity of the item in question. however, please remember that with time, crepe paper fades, glass glitter tarnishes, and vintage embellishments only become 'more vintage'. this timeworn patina is part of what makes my pieces grow more and more charming with age.
