Announcement   Welcome to the Faerymother shop, thanks for dropping in!
Faerymother is a "travelling shop" wondering the globe finding beautiful things!

PLEASE NOTE: Items will be sent from my base in India or Australia please check with me if your unsure where your item is coming from.

We are a world travel family originating from Australia and traveling the globe with a big love of culture, people, tribal and vintage treasures. Each item you see here is hand picked by myself for it's beauty and authenticity.

Current location - Australia
Next stop - Back to india
Just been - Kathmandu Nepal.

With this shop I hope to connect you with the magic of the east and vintage allure of the west. I hope you Love and Enjoy these treasures as much as I do!

Please read my policies before purchase and check the location of the item being sent. I do tend to overestimate the shipping time of 3 weeks it will often come much quicker but please have reasonable expectations of delivery and be understanding of the excellent yet plodding postage services.

So far this year I have collected in Australia, America, India and Nepal with plenty of adventures planned including Taiwan and Australia late in the year.

In the last few 5 plus years on the road we have wondered through Tibet, Spain, China, Tenerife and meandered our usual silk road through India and Nepal... I'm sure you will notice that I found some amazing things!

I ship from two bases Australia where my mother often helps me out with some items and from my main shipping base in the Indian Himalayas.

I am happy to hear from you, so feel invited to message me about items or other queries.

Love Sarah

About

Faerymother -Global Gypsy hunt and Gather

Faerymother started with a pile of vintage 70's hippie dresses and a need to downsize so I could take my family on never ending travels. Having always balanced on the fine line of nomadic and nester, I began to use Etsy to showcase my collections and practice the art of letting go.
Almost 4 years later, I find myself as a professional nomadic trader and curator of vintage clothes, tribal jewellery and my true love ethnic textiles.
A few years ago I decided to build a studio in the Himalayas and to go between there and home in Australia, when i'm not in ether place i'm usual having adventures finding beautiful things and offering them here on Etsy and soon on my website. Thank you for reading a little bit about the origins and activities of Faerymother for more on me you can check out my instagram account faery_mother or have a look at my blog.
Lots of love
Sarah

Shipping
The items in my shop are shipped from two locations-
Australia
North India

It should be clear at checkout from where the item will be shipped from, it may also be written in the description, Please contact me if you are unsure.

International shipping times are an estimate and I have no control over the actual delivery time:
Handling time is around 3 business days

Items sent from India are always registered with tracking. Tracking will show on the India post website and on your Etsy shipping notification, occasionally and (especially for the US) tracking doesn't update online after departure from India however tracking will be available through the post office on request and by quoting your tracking number.

Items shipped internationally from Australia can take from 1-3 weeks. Items sent from Australia are generally not sent with tracking (due to the high postage fees) if you require tracking please upgrade at the option during checkout if there is no option for upgrade it probably means your items are coming from India please look for the shipping origin at the checkout.

Handling time is around 3 business days.
Shipping can take anywhere from 1- 4 weeks.

The buyer must take responsability for all custom duties, import taxes, duty fee and VAT

I often use recycle packs and boxes when sending items.

For shipping from Australia- If an item is lost in transit due to not upgrading at checkout I will most likely not be able to reimburse the buyer for the loss.

Items from India have a limited insurance if the item is broken in transit I will need a photo before processing your item refund.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns are really hard for me as I am often travelling and unless it is way off the description I generally wont be able to accept a return. Exceptions depend on individual situations please contact me directly if you anticipate needing to return after purchase. Please be sure of your purchases and double check with me any issues that may worry you before hand. I am happy to go into more details on request.
Damage occurred during postage transit must be verified with photos, I will not be refunding or replacing the item without photographic proof.
Additional policies and FAQs
I really want you to have a excellent shopping experience with me, I am very understanding and friendly. I will do my best to make sure you are satisfied with the item and process.

Please remember that vintage items are indeed that over 20 years old and so they come with character and history but aren't new.
