I ordered this as a gift for a friend's little girl and apparently, she LOVED it, so I'm likely getting one for my daughter in her birthday as well. Great correspondence! Thank you!

Welcome to kidsstore, where there are a variety of quality items that are fun and colorful, yet practical. I try to make things that kids, and parents, will love and the items will be enjoyed for a long time. Most of my items are made of 100% cotton and eco-friendly. I do accept and appreciate international sales.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I only accept payment through PayPal. Unless it is a custom order, all sales plus postage must be paid for before the items are shipped. Whether or not a custom order must be paid for in full before it is made and shipped may depend on the size of the order, the details, when needed, and the cost of the supplies. Each custom order is handled separately and the details are decided and agreed on between the customer and kidsstore. Payments for custom orders are not refundable as the order is made up to the individual customer's specifications and not easily sold to another person if the original customer changes her/his mind.
Shipping
Most of my items are shipped 1-3 days after payment notice has been received. Most of my items are shipped in either the USPS flat rate boxes or in white bubble mailer envelopes, and it usually takes 3-7 business days for a package to arrive in the continental U.S. I try to ship the least expensive way. If a customer wants tracking, insurance, or an order to be expedited, they need to contact me before purchasing an item so I can check out the additional costs and add that to the shipping cost of the item. Many sellers increase their shipping fees to include thes additional charges, but I do not. I try to charge the most reasonable, basic fees, then add the additional fees if that is what the customer wants. Due to all of the changes in the US Postal Service, shipping can be delayed. I try to ship my orders in a timely manner, but once the package is shipped I no longer have any control over it. For that reason, a package has to be at least 2 weeks late before I will consider it lost and issue a refund. If an item is needed by a specific date, please be sure to notify me so we can discuss shipping items to guarantee that you will receive it before the date needed.

International Sales - I do ship internationally, but unless a customer wants to pay for next day priority mail and insurance, I cannot track a package once it leaves the U.S. I have no control on how long it will take a package to arrive in a foreign country, it depends on the shipping method and customs procedures for each individual country. Please contact me before making a purchase if there are any special requirements or concerns for shipping an item to your country. The USPS has had a large increase in the fees charged for international shipping, so international customers need to check with me before purchasing an item to see what the fees actually will be. Then the customer can decide if they still want to complete the sale.

International customers must allow up to 3 months for a package to arrive before kidsstore will consider a refund. Most packages arrive in 2-6 weeks, but customs can delay packages up to 3 months in certain countries.

International customs fees are the responsibility of the customer. If the customer is unsure of what the fees will be, they need to check with their customs department or post office before purchasing an item. If an item is approved by kidsstore to be returned from an international customer, that customer is responsible for all return postage. Also, the refund will not be issued until kidsstore has received the items in the same condition it was originally sent it.
Refunds and Exchanges
Because custom made and personalized items are created for a specific person the items are not refundable. Before finalizing a custom or personalized item, be sure to have any questions or concerns addressed and answered. I try very hard to make my customers happy, and pride myself on my customer service.

How returns and refunds are handled on items depends on each individual situation. All returns and refunds must be approved by me before the item is shipped back to kidsstore. Kidsstore must be contacted about returns and refunds within 10 days after the item has been shipped. Once the item has been approved for a refund or exchange, the item must be shipped back to kidsstore within 3 days after the customer is given my return authorization. The item must be in the same condition and packaging that it was in when it was first shipped to the customer. In case of damaged items, I will need photos of the item and packaging before deciding about a possible return or refund.

The postage fees that were paid when the item was shipped to the customer are not refundable. Also, the customer is responsible for any postage and shipping fees paid to return the item to kidsstore.

Since most of my items are made of 100% cotton fabrics, and the fabric usually is not prewashed, kidsstore is not responsible for a little shrinkage caused from washing and drying. Most items can be safely laundered using standard washing and drying methods for cotton fabrics. To help set the dyes, the customer may want to launder the item in cold or cool water for the first few washes, as cotton fabric dyes can bleed/run. If that happens, kidsstore and I are not responsible for any damage the dye may do to other items. If you have any questions about how to launder an item, please contact me before purchasing the item.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do accept custom orders. Depending on the items and orders, an order can take anywhere from 3 days to 1 month to complete. I try to limit my custom bedding orders to 2 per month. If there is a time issue, the customer needs to make sure I am aware of it. There can be a lot of convos during a custom order process and I try to make sure all questons are answered and keep the customer updated in a reasonable manner. Depending on the total cost of the order, I will decide if the order is to be paid in full before starting the project or if I will accept a deposit of half the total price to cover the cost of the materials with the balance plus postage paid when the order is completed. I try to work with my customers to produce the product they envision. Custom order prices are not set, as they depend on so many variables, including which items, details, sizes, fabric selections, and the cost of the materials used.

Remember, custom orders are not refundable so be sure to ask all of your questions before making the first or final payment. Once I purchase the materials needed for the project, I cannot return them. If you must cancel the order after the materials have been purchased, and before the items are completed, some of the deposit, if not all, will be forfeited to cover my cost and labor to that point. How much depends on the situation and at what stage I am in with creating the order.

I use mainly printed cotton fabrics. To keep the cost down for my customers I place the patterns on the fabric in a manner to use as much of the fabric as possible. Because of that, the pattern placement on copies of an item in a specific fabric may not be exactly as shown in the photos. If you want a specific character or part of a design to show, check with me prior to purchasing the item to see if it is possible.

Accent fabrics - a fabric used as an accent or companion fabric may have been discontinued. If that happens, I may substitute with another fabric that is similar. If you want the item exactly as shown in the photo, please be sure to let me know before making a purchase.

Pets - we do have a cat. I try to keep the cat out of my sewing area, but that is not always possible. Also, we have a black lab "granddog" who stays with us most days while his owners are at work, who thinks he needs to keep me company and protect me while I am sewing. He doesn't touch the fabrics or items, but is in the room sometimes. My house is "smoke free" but not "pet free". If you are allergic to cats or dogs, please be sure to contact me before making a purchase.

Processing interruptions - There may be times that my processing orders and making custom items my be interrupted and delayed. The reason is that my 91 year old mother lives with us, has moderate dementia, and we are her caregivers. If she needs to go to the hospital, I have to be there most of the time to answer health and care questions as she cannot be relied on to do so accurately. This does not happen often, but can and is just a part of being a caregiver. If that happens, and I am unable to get an order out in my usual processing time or in the time that I had promised the customer, I always contact the customer to make her/him aware of the situations. If it is possible, I do continue to process those orders that need to go out and cannot wait. I try to inform the customer of what to expect in the next few days, and let them make the decision on whether or not they want to wait for their item. So far my customers have been wonderful, and I have been able to complete their orders in a time agreed manner. I just want to make sure that my customers know that this is a part of my life, and it can happen.

Other Etsy shops - I have 2 additional Etsy shops. The newest one is called Kidsquilts3, and will focus on unfinished quilt tops, finished quilts, flannel blankets, novelty quilts, and children oriented cotton fabrics. Right now it only has 12 iatems listed, but I will be adding more when I get the time.

The other shop is not currently open, and is called patternspatterns. It was opened to sell extra fabrics and patterns that I am no longer using. I put that shop on vacation mode as I am so busy with kidsstore, I don't have time to keep it going right now.

Questions - If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. The best way is through Etsy convos, as those are the ones I check most frequently. I try to keep customers updated in a reasonable manner, let a customer know of an expected shipping date, send customers convos if I have any questions regarding their order before shipping it, and send the customer a final convo when the order has been shipped.
