Repurposing and reselling Graveyard (aka rescued) Goods!

Hello there!

Thanks for stopping by my shop! Green Graves is my outlet for one of my biggest design passions: reducing waste.

I am one of those people who hates to throw away even the scraps from my crafting projects, and who (unfortunately for my husband) regularly rescues the scraps of other people's projects as well. I love taking something that one person doesn't want, and turning it into a functional and beautiful product that someone else loves!

So, I do my best to actually put the "waste" to good use by reselling and repurposing these unwanted or abandoned goods. These can be scraps, things donated to me, things rescued from the trash, or even garage sale or second-hand shop finds.

There are three types of products that you will find here in Green Graves:
1) Items handmade by me that repurpose at least one rescued material
2) Digital sewing patterns that I've designed, where you can rescue your own material, and create my products yourself
3) DIY kits, that include one of my sewing patterns, and enough of my rescued materials to create your own awesome upcycled product!

Nothing brings me more creative satisfaction than puzzling out how best to use rescued materials to create beautiful new products, and I think you will get just as much joy from doing it too!

Stop by anytime, and feel free to contact me with any questions!

P.P.S. Why GoheenDesigns? Because Goheen LLC is the name of my overall business! Green Graves is only one part of it, the part dedicated to my passion of repurposing :)

Hello There!
Green Graves is here to rescue unwanted or abandoned materials, and pass them on to new homes! I believe in combining beauty and function in all my designs, along with a little whimsy and fun.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
I understand that buying online can be a scary commitment. That's why all items are returnable for two weeks after you purchase them. I will give you a full refund of your initial purchase price, along with your initial shipping. I will not, however, cover the cost of your return shipping.
Payment
If I don't receive payment in 24 hours, I will cancel the order, and relist the item. You are of course welcome to reorder it when you are ready to purchase! Sales tax will only be charged to Indiana residents.
Shipping
All the items I list are finished and ready to ship! I will get them in the mail to you in 1-3 business days after I receive your payment. All my shipping includes tracking so that you can follow along as it journeys towards you! I use USPS in the United States, but I also ship worldwide!
Additional policies and FAQs
All of the materials I use for my handmade items are what I like to call Graveyard Goods. These materials are thrifted, abandoned, re-purposed, seconds, scraps, or other unwanted materials.

This means that the materials are pretty limited and that they come at all different prices! So two very similar items in my shop could have two very different prices, to accommodate the different costs of materials for each one.

This also means that each of my items are one of a kind, and I may never have that exact same material in the future!

All products are made (and kept) in a smoke free pet free apartment!
Privacy
Information I Collect:

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It:

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

-as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
-when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
-if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
-as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure:

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

-Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
-Mailchimp. I share your information with Mailchimp for my mailing list when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time.
-Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
-Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
-Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention:

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU:

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights:

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

-Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
-Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
-Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
-Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me:

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Madeline Stage, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at madeline.goheen [!at] mail.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
