About FakingSanity

Sales 3,481
On Etsy since 2009

Welcome to Faking Sanity!

Cindy and Lou are the owners of Faking Sanity, a brick and mortar LYS/used bookstore/coffee and tea shop, that also sells their own hand made items. This Etsy store is an extension of that.

We are both knitters and crocheters, and newbie weavers, while Lou also spins and dyes yarn. Cindy loves cross stitch and making chainmail jewelry and stitch markers, and Lou also makes a variety of custom aromatherapy and scent blends, as well as lotion and soaps.

You'll find everything here from our custom tea blends to aromatherapy jewelry, and from indie dyed and hand spun yarns to shawl pins and knitting patterns. Check out our podcast for knitting and yarn-related content.

Returns and exchange details
We make every attempt to capture colour-accurate photographs. However, as computer monitors and devices are all calibrated differently, we cannot guarantee that the colour you see on your screen is the exact colour of any yarns. That being said, please do send us a message if you are unhappy with any of our items, and we will work with you to resolve the issue. If you wish to return an item, contact us first; we do not charge a restocking fee, but do require that returns be discussed/approved first (approval is based on whether the item has been used, etc). You are responsible for return shipping costs; upon receipt of the item, as long as it is still unused and in new condition, we will issue a refund of the purchase price (minus shipping costs).
Payment
Payment is due within 3 days of purchase. We accept payment through Paypal (either Paypal balance, debit, or credit), Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover. Orders are shipped within 3 business days of receiving payment.
Shipping
Shipping to the USA takes on average 2-3 weeks to arrive and is NOT TRACKABLE. If you would your package to be trackable, contact us and we will quote you a shipping cost.

To keep shipping costs down for our Canadian customers, yarn will be shipped vacuum sealed and lettermail, which typically reduces the cost of shipping by more than half.

For US and international orders, we will typically ship small packet or use Etsy's calculated shipping option, leaving you the ability to upgrade your shipping method at actual Canada Post cost. Please note neither tracking or insurance is included in the standard shipping option, but you can choose to upgrade your shipping if you want either for your purchase. Standard parcel delivery estimates from here in Northern BC are 10-15 business days (i.e. not including weekends or holidays). COVID-19 outbreaks and precautions may slow this down.

You are responsible for any customs, duties or taxes that your country might charge upon receipt of your goods.

For any other shipping-related questions, please contact us.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties such as Etsy itself (you can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices).

Information Collected:
Faking Sanity does not collect and/or store any information outside of Etsy. When you purchase an item from Faking Sanity on Etsy, Etsy provides us with the information required to fulfil the order (such as details of the product you are ordering, payment information, and the name, email address and shipping address you provided for the order).

Why We Need this Information and How We Use It:
- to fulfill your order
- to answer your questions or provide customer service to you regarding the item you are inquiring about or purchasing
- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchase if required by tax law
if necessary to comply with Etsy's Seller Policy and Terms of Use

Information Sharing and Disclosure:
Our customers' privacy is of utmost importance to us. We share your information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
- Etsy: The information you share on Etsy's platform for the purposes of purchasing an item from us is accessible to Etsy, and we may provide information to them (such as the date we shipped an item, in the case of a dispute)
- Shippers: We share your shipping information with trusted delivery/shipping companies, such as Canada Post, for the purpose of shipping your purchase to you.

We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with the product(s) and/or service(s) you purchased from us via Etsy and as described in this Privacy Policy. We do not keep personal information outside of the Etsy platform at all, for any period of time. However, we may refer back to this information on the Etsy Shop Manager as required (such as to resolve disputes about the sale), for the period of time that Etsy retains this information and makes it available to us via the Shop Manager.

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information.
