Hi there! I know it might seem a little tedious, but it's important that you read through the shop policies. I'll try to make them as interesting as possible, ok?

My goal and reason for running this shop is to provide fun, handmade, vintage inspired costume jewelry that's easy to mix and match. Some of the items I use to create these pieces are vintage, others simply have a vintage appeal; I try to be as clear as possible in my descriptions of an item to differentiate between the two.

Returns and exchanges
I truly TRULY want you to be happy with your purchase and I take pride in having happy customers. Please notify me immediately if you are unhappy with your purchase, for any reason. Refunds and exchanges are available up to 5 days after receipt of the item. The item must be returned to me, in it's original condition before I ship its replacement or refund the cost. The cost of shipping for exchanged items will be the responsibility of the customer.
******Many of these items are adhered with glue. I'm currently using E6000, industrial strength glue. I cannot be held liable for any items that may come undone; however, I will be happy to assist you in any way I can to ensure that the item can become wearable again.*******************

PLEASE take note of the measurements I've described with each listing. Many of these items are very small! I photograph all of the pieces close up and zoomed in. The measurements are described in the listing using millimeters and/or inches.
I love Paypal and you should too. It's easy to sign up and payment is secure. If for some reason Paypal is giving you a headache, contact me and we can work out a payment via Money Order or through Google Checkout.
Payment is due immediately and your item won't ship until I've received it. I understand that sometimes there are issues or that you (oops!) forget to pay so I'll contact you prior to canceling your order. If I don't receive payment or hear from you within 48 hours, your order will be canceled.

Kindly make sure that your Paypal and Etsy addresses match or there will be a delay in shipping until I can confirm where to send your package.

If you are new to Etsy and have never made a purchase, I recommend reading the following article entitled, "Buying an Item on Etsy":
I try to be as speedy as possible about shipping your item. All items ship within 3 business days of purchase.

All packages are currently being shipped ground USPS. If you are an international customer and would like a tracking number, please contact me PRIOR to your purchase so that I can adjust shipping costs (this can get pricey so I'll have to get a quote from the post office).
**Expedited shipping is available at an extra cost. Just be sure to notify me PRIOR to purchasing an item so that I can adjust the cost.

Are you buying this item for a friend (these items make great gifts!) and need it shipped to a different address? Simply convo me via Etsy and on the "notes to merchants" at the time of your purchase and I will verify the correct shipping address.

**In the unfortunate event that an item gets lost during shipping we will all be very sad, but please notify me and I will replace your item at no extra cost to you. I do, however, ask that you wait four weeks (U.S. residents) after initial shipping to make sure the package is actually lost! If you're an international customer, I ask that you wait 7 weeks before requesting a replacement. In this case, a tracking number will be mandatory at an extra cost to the buyer.
**I take lots of care in packaging my items. All items are gift wrapped with love. I think you'll enjoy the package as much as what's inside!
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have a request for a color or style that you don't see, please contact me! I'd love to work with you. I am a one woman show and carry only *one* of many of these items. If you require multiples of the same item, I will try my best to accommodate you.
