Shop policies

Last updated on November 22, 2015
I am happy to welcome you to my Etsy Shop. Please read all my policies before purchasing an item.

This is a SMOKE FREE studio. However, it is not a pet free studio. If you are highly allergic to Golden Retriever dander, please do not purchase!. I do my best to keep hair out of the packaging, but dander is invisible and my best friend is always by my side.

About the longevity of the preserved flowers.
The glycerin treatment used on the roses and gardenias is a new method out of France. The supplier says years if stored properly. There is not a lot of historical data as the process is so new. I can say for sure that I have had them in arrangements for the last 4 years and they look exactly the same. There is no odor left from the process. The flowers have no scent at all.
These are real flowers therefore the are subject to the same damage as fresh flowers. I do not recommend them for wild dancing, clingy babies or bear hugs.

Warnings.
I did accidentally leave a bouquet outside after a photo shoot and the roses sort of wilted after a night in the fog. So they have to be kept dry. If you leave them in the full sun for an extended period of time they will eventually fade in color. The glycerine in the flowers will react with any type of shellac based paint. Do not leave them face down on your prized antique tables. Colored flowers will bleed onto fabric under damp conditions.

About Production time.
Please allow at least a week production time for custom orders. It can take much longer if the "design" process is slow. That depends on what you had in mind and how good you are at expressing that to me. Your bouquet is an important part of your day. I will help you create a unique expression of who you are. I am happy to spend time helping you work through the process. I do work with brides on a "first come first serve" basis so there may be brides in front of you that will slow the process down. Always plan on receiving your piece one month before the event to allow for any mishaps.

CUSTOM FLOWER PACKAGES: To place a flower order, please send a convo for a quote. Please be as specific as possible. After all details confirmed, a down payment listing will set set up for 50% of the package price.

I will be sending photos as progress is made. Balance and shipping costs will need to be paid upon approval of the finished product photos. A second listing will be set up to make final balance payment. Significant changes to the flower selection after your deposit has been paid may add extra cost to your order. I am happy to hold orders ( up to 2 months) upon request.

Alterations of Original Request.
I try to make the deposit listing as specific as possible. While I understand that sometimes once the bouquet is put together it may not be quite what you had envisioned. I am happy to work with you and alter it to become your perfect bouquet. I do not add the roses in until you are happy with the base. Please understand that once the roses are in the bouquet they can not be removed without risking damage. Therefore I cannot re-used them. There will a $25-$50 charge for fresh roses each time I re-work the bouquet. There will also be extra charges for items you decide not to include once I purchase them for you.
As an example, if you request blue brooches and decide against them after seeing them in the bouquet.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
PLEASE READ THE LISTING AND LOOK AT ALL THE PICTURES BEFORE PURCHASE.
I accept PayPal and major credit cards. If you wish to pay by credit card,the invoice will be sent through PayPal. To pay the invoice, you don't have to be PayPal member,just simply follow PayPal directions.
Shipping
I try to ship within 24-48 hours of your purchase. Custom orders take a minimum of 2 weeks to complete once we have come up with a concept for your unique piece. If you have a "bouquet emergency" contact me. "next day" shipping can take 2-3 days and is around $40.

I make every effort to protect my pieces during shipping. However I can not control postal workers. I now insure all with UPIC on most items. There is a bit of a process to make a claim and you must fill out an affidavit and provide pictures.
Should your purchase arrive damaged, take photos right away. If there is sufficient time, I can repair the damage or send replacement flowers. If there is not time I can refund after you ship the items back to me ( for UPIC insurance only) Items must be shipped back within 3 days of receipt with a tracking number.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do want you to be thrilled with your flowers. Colors vary from monitor to monitor. Please request a sample (small fee) if color is critical. Your Aqua might be Turquoise to me. There will be a $5 restocking fee per return.

If there is a problem with an item, you must contact me within 3 days of receipt of item to resolve the issue or receive a refund. Item must be shipped back within 3 days of receipt. (tracking number required). Sorry I do not refund or replace for items damaged in the course of your event.

Refunds will not be granted for used or damaged items. Buyer is responsible for shipping costs in both directions.

For Custom orders, I use your deposit to purchase materials. Therefore should you cancel a custom order, the deposit will not be returned.
Additional policies and FAQs
Some of the flowers are real. They are just not "fresh". This means the occasional bent or dropped petal is to be expected. The flowers must be stored in a dry place or you will have problems with them. I also have silk and Sola. If you are looking for indestructible, I suggest going with the silk or sola option.

Each piece is unique, and may vary slightly, due to it's handcrafted nature and the natural state of the flowers. Also, due to individual monitor settings, items' colors may appear slightly different in person.
