Thank-you for visiting my shop!
I am inspired by vintage goods and accessories and love to make things new again while celebrating age in things. I admire things with a story and so love working with them to weave them into our surroundings. Remember the more we resuse, the less we're producing new and wasting resources :D
Using found vintage treasures and reusing, upcycling and sewing with vintage fabrics, I present to you:
Dust and Dawn {Making Old New}
I am pretty easy going and am happy to answer any questions you might have as well as do my best to accommodate your custom requests or suggestions!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
All items may be returned for refund of the item price minus a 15% restocking fee to cover Etsy's commission and Paypal fees. Shipping costs for returned items are not refundable unless otherwise noted by myself in convos. I must be contacted regarding your wish to return the item within 3 days of receipts and the item must be returned within 7 days of receipt in new unused condition. Exchanges are offered in the form of a ‘gift certificate’ towards another item.
Paypal is preferred but I can also accept personal checks and Money Orders if contacted prior to purchasing one of my items. If paying by Paypal - payment is expected immediately (within 24 hours).
PayPal-paid items will be shipped to your PayPal listed address unless not matching your Etsy information, in which case I will contact you for further instructions.
If sending a personal check or money order - they have up to 7 days to reach me. Items will be held until check clearance.
Please allow 5-10 working days for your item to be received. I try to get things out as soon as possible but sometimes shipping can be delayed. I appreciate your patience and am confident that you will be delighted with your purchase.

If your Country is not listed on my shipping prices, please contact me with your location and I will be happy to figure out a custom shipping price with you.

All items are shipped by air mail; you will not be billed extra for any shipping-related costs above the amount posted under ‘Shipping’ for each item but you will be reimbursed if I have over-charged for shipping to your area. If you wish to purchase insurance - you may, but you must contact me before payment is sent so that I can send a revised invoice.
You will be responsible for any costs incurred by customs.
Assessed on a case-by-case basis I will be happy to provide you with 'gift certificate' compensation for any items fallen victim to lost or damaged mail.
I am happy to send to 'giftees' address, but please inform me of this asap once you've committed to buying.
I support shopping locally and arrangements can be made on a case-by-case basis for pick-up to avoid shipping costs, which I will reimburse if already paid.
Additional policies and FAQs
I make no guarantees on the colours of pieces shown as all monitors will display differently. I will always try my hardest to display them as they appear and describe them as they appear, not leaving out any faults.
Items with small parts are not intended for children under 5.
All of my items come from a smoke and pet-free home.
Please contact me if you have any questions about products prior to purchasing.

Please convo me for anything at all; I love that we can converse easily and I promise to be very reasonable with all sales!
