Announcement    Kidsstore is in the process of reorganizing its inventory. I recently opened a new Etsy shop, called Kidztoyz3, that will focus on the fabric and wood toys that I make. Kidsstore will go back to the original purpose and focus mainly on baby and toddler bedding. All items shown in either shop are ready for shipping. If you are looking for a toy in Kidsstore and cannot find it, that would mean it had been transferred to Kidztoyz3. The quality items in both shops are made to be fun yet practical, and long-lasting. All items are made by me. If you don't find what you are looking for this time, please come back as I will be adding new things periodically. Thanks for stopping by and have fun shopping.

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.

Returns and exchange details
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 5 days after the item has been delivered. Once the item has been approved for a refund or exchange, the item must be shipped back to Kidsstore within 7 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 or use one of those "dye catchers" sold in the laundry detergent departments 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.
Payment
I only accept payment through Etsy and 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. Deposits are required before I will purchase the materials needed for the custom items. If a customer should decide to cancel the order before it has been completed, any deposits made will not be refunded nor the partially made item forwarded on to the customer. The deposits are made to cover the materials expense for said item.
Shipping
Most of my items listed 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. A package can take up to 2 weeks for delivery in the continental United States and, if it has the wrong address or is returned for another reason, take an additional 2 weeks to be returned to me. For that reason, a package has to be at least 4 weeks late before I will consider it lost and issue a refund. Please be sure to contact me if your package does not arrive in the expected time frame, and I will see if I can track it. If an item is needed by a specific date, please be sure to notify me so we can discuss shipping methods 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 and VAT 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 item in the same condition it was originally sent it.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders - 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, all of the deposit, will be forfeited to cover my cost and labor to that point.

Fabrics - 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 2 cats "visiting" until late 2020. I try to keep the cats out of my sewing area, but that is not always possible. Also, we have a black lab "granddog" who stays with us sometimes when his owners are on vacation, who thinks he needs to keep me company and protect me while I am working. 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 when normal "and not so normal" life events happen. This does not occur often, but is possible. 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 I am the only one who makes my items and have had some previous events occur that had to put everything else on hold.

Other Etsy shops - I have 2 additional Etsy shops. The newest one is called FairyHouseAndGarden, and will focus on DIY fairy garden kits, supplies and misc. themed items. I became interested in fairies when making the first fairy garden with our youngest granddaughter. I am starting to enter my inventory now, and hope to have it officially open soon.

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 didn't have time to keep it going, but hope to reopen it in the next couple of months.

Contacting me - Etsy has made a lot of changes in the past 3 years, since I had to shut my shops down due to my mother's long illness. A lot of those changes have been on how their website operates, and I am still learning them. The best way to contact me is through Etsy's convo system, and I do try to check for any messages and respond to them each day. If you do send me a message and a couple of days go by without a response, please try again. Not all electronic mail goes through completely.

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.
