About EmbellishedLife

Sales 1,144
On Etsy since 2008

Live an embellished life...

I'm an obsessive maker who used to cut up my mom's sweaters to make doll clothes (I learned to pick the lock when she started locking the door!)

I have a room full of supplies and am happiest when creating. The possibilities fascinate me, and the opportunity to make something unique keeps me going.

Living in NYC gives me access to a wonderful array of neighborhoods with all kinds of goodies. I can be found wandering the streets of Manhattan's fabric district and any little store in all boroughs. I strive for different and keep-worthy, in a time of mass-produced and throw-away.

Nothing beats making things with my hands. Well, maybe being by the beach...and tiramisu, key lime pie, Walking Dead... and wine. Especially cheap wine, I don't discriminate. One day I intend to move near the beach, watch, eat and drink said luxuries and make things all day long. All things are possible with the internet (well, except pouring me some wine, and that's what hubby AND a cabana boy is for)

Yours in embellishingness (yes, it is too a word!)
Sharon

Returns and exchange details
Refunds, minus shipping fees, are available for items returned within 15 days from receipt (during the Christmas holidays (November 26 - December 25, items can be returned up until January 15). Item must be in new and unused condition. After 15 days, there is only a store credit/exchange. For exchanges, you are responsible for sending package safely back, and I will pay for re-sending out new/exchange item. Store credit is good for one year for any item in both of my stores.

Communication is the key to a mutually acceptable solution. If you are dissatisfied in any way with your purchase/experience, please contact me and together we will work it out.
Payment
All payments go through Etsy's Direct Checkout. I have no access to your financial information. All and any refunds are returned to the original method of payment.

RESERVES
If you would like to have something reserved (until payday, windfall, lotto earnings), drop me a line and we'll work out the details. If you're willing to wait for it, I'm willing to wait for you :)
Shipping
*6/5/2020 Please be aware that COVID19 and current social/politicial situations may disrupt postal services and can delay your packages*
First class shipping within the US is included in the price of full time items. Clearance items have a shipping fee but will be refunded if purchased with a full price item.

UPGRADE/QUICKER SHIPPING
Please contact me prior to buying if upgraded/quicker shipping options are needed; these incur extra/additional charges that must be pre-paid. If you want it bad enough, I'll try my best to get it to you.

**Please understand that even with express services by the post office, mail still can take 3-4 weeks in international countries due to heightened security measures at customs; courier shipping is available (FEDEX, UPS) but bear in mind that those incur brokerage fees in addition to custom fees.

*NOTE*: Custom charges are the responsibility of international buyers. Please make sure that your country does not restrict import on materials in my items before ordering. I will check on my end also, but I may not know. I don't want you to order something that won't reach you and that might be confiscated and/or destroyed.

PACKAGING
I admit, I'm a fool for frippery. That said, I try to keep it simple: your item is wrapped in tissue paper and/or placed in a fabric bag, put in a reusable plastic baggie to protect in case the mailer gets wet, and then popped in a secure mailer.
Additional policies and FAQs
GIFT-WRAP
All items are sent gift-ready, in tissue paper and/or a handmade fabric bag.

PRIVACY
Privacy for your purchases is always available. If desired, a generic picture can be listed with the price (s)of the item (s) you are interested in. This service is free of charge, just let me know before-hand. Your information is never shared, sold or otherwise divulged in any way except as may be required by Etsy, Paypal, and/or law.

I am proud to offer a quality product along with impeccable customer service. I am available always for any kind of questions and/or concerns. Please don't hesitate to contact me, and thanks for visiting!
