~My PHOTOS and WORDS in listings are MY property, They are copywrited material. If i peruse ebay and see my photos in your listing, YOU will be reported and YOU will be getting a cease and desist letter from my lawyer. Please ask permission if you need to use my stuff.

~ I try and keep everything reasonably priced, as long as I keep getting reasonably priced supplies. I pass the savings on to you too!

~You should HAND WASH all handmade clothing, I don't care who made it. To ensure a long, hippie life with that item. If you do not, you are risking not having that item very long. I love re-using and recycling...With that in mind, I use lots of different fabrics, and HIGHLY suggest hand washing all items.

~ I DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS or GRIEF, if you happen to buy something that does not fit you, OR if you alter something! I clearly list all measurements...and i am very convo friendly!! If it is my fault something happened i will gladly fix it. I think this is fair.

~I reserve the right to CANCEL any order I wish.

~ I will also SHIP ABROAD, just message me before buying so we can figure out shipping.

~ I SHIP within 3 days (usually sooner) after receiving cleared payment, unless it is a custom, and I ship Monday through Friday. I ship everything with a delivery confirmation, and most items with DC and Insurance. I do not make money on shipping.

~ We are a very ANIMAL friendly house. A stray hair or two is inevitable. I do wash everything befor it goes, in eco friendly detergent, and pet roll everything. We have a seal point himalayan cat named Stealie, and a dog, Phillmore . But really, Stealie is stubborn and goes and sits everywhere. So please be warned.
They sometimes show up in photos too. =)

~RESERVED items are on a base to base decision. I have lots of people flake on stuff and that really hurts my spirit and business, so I may ask for a down payment. If that is not ok, do not ask me to reserved anything, Thanks.

~And lastly, Please do not buy things that say RESERVED in the listing unless it is reserved for you. If you would like a similar item, please contact me. I love customs!

~ Any other questions, just ask! Thanks bunches!! Much love!

Seller sent me photos every step of the way to ensure that it would look exactly how I wanted. Even sent me another photo when I asked her to move one piece over a quarter of an inch to make sure it was good. Shipping was extremely fast as well, I was surprised. PS This seller is also a kind individual who does awesome things to help unfortunate kitties.

About

Music is the Soul of Life....

Me and this shop wouldn't be here if it wasn't for all the Stitching Mama's before me, my Mom, my Gramma Ruth, Jon, Ethan, Phish, and the Grateful Dead.

I used to envy and drool over all the amazing fashions that were sold at festivals and shows. Only wishing I could take them all home! Low on funds, I did however try and buy a shirt from every place I had been, which led to a massive amount of oversized mens shirts. Being thrifty as I am, I had to come up with a way to actually wear these shirts that were getting no love otherwise, I figured others had this same problem...and that is how it all started. On the sewing machine my mom bought me years ago, still my main one alongside my trusty serger.

I now sell mostly on etsy, and try and hit shows when I can. I have vended some of my ware's while living in California at Festival 8, Shoreline and other random Furthur show's. With moving to the Pacific Northwest, I now plan on vending at The Gorge when I can, and other close shows. I am no newb to vending though, I have vended many places helping others out slinging pizza bread, goo balls and glass at the first 6 Bonnaroo's, Shwagstock, Phish Tour's and Festivals all over the great US.

and If that jubilee don't come,
maybe I'll meet you on the run

Payment
~~~~NEW~~~
I am only reserving items with a non refundable down payment. A few issues in the past have lead me to believe this is the right thing to do. I will need a certain amount of the total to be put down, and if you do not pay for your item in full, by the date agreed upon, your deposit will be gone and the item unreserved. With this being said, i am pretty easy to work with, as long as all lines of communication are OPEN. Thanks for understanding. ~~~~~

As of now I accept Paypal and Money Orders. Please message me to pay with mo. I do expect you to send it with a delivery confirmation on it.

I will and can RESERVE items for you until you have the money as long as i have an idea of how long it will be. I do however, expect FULL communication while on reserve. Do NOT get mad at me if i don't hear from you and unreserve the item(s), or they are not paid for by said date, and I unreserve. This is my only source of income, and i just can't wait unknowingly for you to respond and pay for items.

Please do not buy things that say RESERVED in the listing unless it is reserved for you. If you would like a similar item, please contact me. I love customs!


I will consider TRADES.

I reserve the right to CANCEL any order I wish.
Shipping
I will also SHIP ABROAD, just message me before buying so we can figure out shipping.

I SHIP within 3 days (usually sooner) after receiving cleared payment, unless it is a custom, and I ship Monday through Friday. I ship everything with a delivery confirmation, and most items with DC and Insurance. I do not make money on shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds or exchanges.

I also do not accept grief if you buy something that does not fit you, or you alter something to fit you. I clearly list all measurements and a general size guide. If you do not know if an item will fit you, please ask! I will do my best to help you or make something to fit you.
Additional policies and FAQs
We are a very ANIMAL friendly house. A stray hair or two is inevitable. I do wash everything befor it goes. We have a seal point himalayan cat named Stealie, and a pit bull, Phillmore . But really, Stealie is stubborn and goes and sits everywhere. So please be warned.
