Announcement   The Boutique of Maitresse Rouge:

I live here in historic Oklahoma City, which has a thriving community of local businesses and fun community of independent, alternative people. We are steeped in our history as a hub of the Wild West and a hub of Native American culture. This gives me access to some wonderful items in regards to vintage apparel and jewelry findings.

I sell vintage, retro, fetish, and historical fashions in clothing, shoes, and jewelry as well as fanciful vintage textiles and linens. My work is influenced by extensive travels throughout the Canadian, American, and Mexican West as well as my work as a historical costumer, lifetime crafter, and the current legacy of generations of artists in my family.

I also specifically seek out plus size clothing of high quality materials and designs. All my items sold are in nearly new, if not new condition made of the best materials and from the most notable designers.

I also craft sparkling hair pins for the Odango/Dango hair style; Japanese double buns with a beaded chain in-between. Each design is unique and has one-of-a-kind elements interwoven in each one such as antique shoe buckles, mother of pearl pins, abalone shells personally gathered from the Monterey Bay seashore, and many other striking implements.

Black pins currently are 4.5 inches and white pins are 5 inches long.

Hair Pin Instructional Videos (my own is forthcoming):

I only ship in North American at this time. I ship priority mail flat rates whenever possible and that always includes tracking.

(Canadian and Mexican shipping fees will be assessed according to current average U.S. postal costs not posted shipping costs. A small package to the UK for example can cost up to 17.00 in shipping. Please contact your postal carrier BEFORE ordering to determine if estimated shipping costs are acceptable.)

The quill is very pretty, light as a feather and surprisingly tough! :D Also quite sharp, good for hitting the reset button on my router or opening up stubborn Capri Sun pouches.

Hazelthorne's Shop is a one-woman attempt to concur Bipolar disorder and support my family's tiny income. Everyday I channel my creativity into a unique, sturdy, and desirable products.

I work is influenced by extensive travels throughout the Canadian, American, and Mexican West as well as my work as a historical costumer, lifetime crafter, and current legacy to generations of artists in my family.

I work with mediums I can make a tactile connection with. I prefer natural materials and found materials. I like things that glow or that have a deep personal luster to them that pulls me into memories of past colors and events.

I live in a very tiny cabin in the Redwood Forest not far from a clear creek. Deep in our canyon, the sun rarely shines in winter, but I look out on leaves all year round. I like my little cabin even though it is a bit shabby and broken down. Like bears I and my partner cuddle up and hibernate under our shabby worn down comforters. It is a very simple peaceful life. We own nothing of value, but the time we spend together and with our fur-babies Freya and Loki, is worth more than any of the prestige I used to dream of fresh out of graduate school.

That is my art of living, plain and simple. I want my jewelry to make people sigh at it's loveliness, my toys to be extra warm and cuddly, and everything else to be utterly exceptional.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
Payments need to be made within seven days of purchase.
If you need to cancel a sale, please do within those seven days and you will receive a refund, no questions asked.
I prefer payments through Paypal but I will accept money orders and cash in person if requested.
Shipping
I ship everything by the United States Postal service ($2.80 option) or their Priority Mail service ($4.80 option). This keeps my base shipping cost low and means your item reaches you in a short time with less time for it to get broken, and more instant gratification for you. If for some reason you need special shipping, all the fees for that will be exactly what the shipper charges.

I will ship internationally based off the current best rate of the US Postal Service. Please talk to me for more info.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will give refunds if the item is never received. I will give a refund if the item is defective and breaks under normal use. If you use your hair pins as numchuka, I won't pay for your friend's eye surgery.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do custom orders as specified on my main page. If you provide the beads, I can do custom work too. I do create variations on my designs, including colors and materials offered.

I don't do wholesale, but I will package and tag individual items for resale if you are interested. I am also open to consignment of my work to galleries and shops with a contract, especially local galleries to central coastal California.
