Thanks for checking out Kate Black's shop on Etsy!

All items are created in a smoke-free workspace.

I welcome special requests! Please inquire if I am able to accomodate you before purchasing an item.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Shipping prices include insurance against loss/damage. I will replace, repair or refund items if necessary. (Buyer's remorse is not considered necessity.)
► Please pay when you buy and buy when you're ready to pay.

Non-payment & non-contact after 24 hours may be considered forfeiture of any one of a kind items you have purchased. I reserve the right to relist items at my discretion.

► NY buyers are subject to sales tax.

I will trade ONLY for: dollars, euros, British pounds, glaucoma meds, organic dry grains, services from certified & licensed physical therapists, masseuses and sometimes hair stylists. Living in NYC means a need for more rent money and fewer possessions. It's not you, it's me. (Unless it is you, in which case, this is me letting you off the hook gently.)
► All items are shipped USPS First Class Mail or USPS Priority Mail, depending on weight.

► Due to fraud involving unconfirmed shipping addresses, I accept payments only from *confirmed* Paypal addresses. You must have a bank account or credit card on file with Paypal so that they can confirm your address. Buyers who cannot provide a confirmed address may be required to purchase USPS insurance and Delivery Confirmation in addition to my listed postage prices.

Most of my items are available for international shipping. Some of these have that price built into their shipping profile. Because insurance and tracking availability and price vary widely by country, these shipping profiles are less viable to use for fragile, one of a kind and more labor intensive items. Customs regulations may prohibit the shipping of certain items to some countries. (For example, it's illegal to import clothing & many accessories to Italy.) If you are outside of the United States and wish to purchase items currently listed as not shipping to your country, please contact me.

► Items available for international shipping can frequently be combined for a lower shipping price. If you would like to purchase multiple items, feel free to send me a list so that I can get you a custom quote.

► USPS offers an international flat rate box for $37, good for up to 20lbs. If your order can fit into a flat rate box, after insurance your shipping costs will rarely exceed $42 USD. These boxes are generally large enough for up to 3 full size books.

I do not ship to Nigeria.
I do not lie on customs forms.
Don't ask.
