Welcome to my shop! There are two primary sections, but all types of items are added regularly. The first is joyful life handmade, which includes items made by me (physical and digital). The second is the perused // vintage section which includes items which were curated, found, or thrifted.

Joyful Life Handmade items may incorporate repurposed materials, such as clothing, linens, etc and will state more details about those items in the description. Many items are one of a kind (listed as OOAK) and others may be ordered customized. Listings which may be customized will be listed as CUSTOM or include notes in the description.

Perused items are considered VINTAGE (20 years old or more) and are all owned by me or may be previously owned. Any details about vintage items will be included in the description. Have fun perusing and I hope you find something that you love!

Returns and exchange details
Though I hope you are sublimely joyful about your order, I do accept returns and exchanges on some orders if you contact me within 7 days of the date the order was received. Returns are not available for custom/personalized orders, digital downloads, or items listed on sale. For all eligible returns and exchanges, the item must be returned undamaged within 30 days. Buyer will be responsible for all shipping costs, including return shipping. Upon receipt of the undamaged product, I will process a refund for the purchase price, less shipping costs or exchange your item. If you are unsure if your item is eligible for a return, please send us an email through Etsy and we will respond as soon as possible.

If your item arrives damaged please contact me to see if we can resolve the situation. I will do what I can to provide a satisfying experience. As always, we recommend purchasing insurance for shipping breakable and irreplaceable vintage items. If you would like to add insurance, please contact me before you purchase and I will send a quote before adjusting the listing.

Items lost or returned due to incorrect shipping information provided by the buyer, or marked undeliverable or unclaimed will not be refunded. The item may be reshipped at the buyer's expense if requested within 30 days of the item arriving back to our shop.

All orders within Washington State are subject to Washington State Sales Tax at the shipping address local rate.
I will always do my best to ship each package at the most affordable rate. Etsy calculates shipping on items based on your zip code and estimated size and weight of the packaging for each item. If you are concerned about the cost of shipping on any particular item, please contact me and I will confirm the rate or determine if an item can be shipped more affordably through FedEx or UPS services.

Please note that shipping costs do not include insurance. Shipping insurance is recommend, especially for breakable items or vintage items which are irreplaceable. If you choose not to purchase insurance, please understand that I will not be responsible for an item once it is turned over to the carrier. If you would like to add insurance, please contact me before you purchase and I will send a quote before adjusting the listing.

International shipping: Since International Shipping is a different animal, please send me an email prior to a purchase to receive a quote and note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred. It is against the law to falsify customs documents. Please do not ask me to mark a value on the package of less than you paid or request it marked as a gift. Thank you for your understanding.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders may be accepted for items in the joyful life designs section of the shop. If you see a particular item that you enjoy, but would like a different color or design, please email me and I will review your request and provide a quote. Please note that agreed upon custom orders will require payment in advance and may be at a higher rate than the posted item which served as inspiration. I will also offer "lookout" service for anyone who is seeking an item similar to something I have posted in the perused // vintage side of the shop and I will watch my local thrift store/antique store/yard & estate sales for an item that suits your needs. Just send me an email and I'll add it to the "want list".
