The items I received had chips in the lid of the sugar bowl that was not mentioned in the listing. The seller did refund my money, after I had to pay $4.54 to return the items. The failure of this seller to accurately describe the damage to the item cost me money and I do NOT think this was right or fair to sell someone a broken item and then leave them holding the bag.

Making something pretty from normal things...

The true version of how I decided to open Lace and Yarn stems from my love of estate sale-ing. As morbid and weird as it seems, I love going to estate sales for the sheer reason of walking through someone's house to see all the stuff they have accumulated. Estate sales of rich people just downsizing, not interesting. Estate sales of people who lived in one house most of their life with a family member trying to get rid of a lifetime's accumulation of stuff, awesome. In 2012 and early 2013, I went to a few sales and found some beautiful vintage "things" that I loved too much to pass up, but had absolutely no use for.

Up until that point, I had been toying with the idea of selling some of my knit things and items I've made for mine and my family and friend's parties, but that seemed far off. Finding those items, for whatever reason, forced me to start work on my vintage and handmade shop.

I hope you'll enjoy looking through my vintage finds and handmade creations. I hope you find something here!

Refunds and Exchanges
My goal is that you are completely satisfied! I do my best to give a complete description of all the items in my shop so you don't have any surprises upon arrival. If there is a case in which you need to return an item, please let me know your concern. I will accept returns if I did not describe the item properly, it was damaged in transit, or you received the wrong item. Buyer is responsible for return shipping.

Custom orders are non-returnable, but I do send photo proofs for you to approve. I do also offer samples of items (like favor bags and thank you notes) for a small fee. Message me for more info.

Vintage dresses are non-returnable. I do my best to describe the dress to my best ability. If you have further questions about the condition, please do so before purchasing the dress. I honestly want you to love the dresses I find as much as I do!

Digital downloads are non-refundable. I will, however, give a refund on a digital item I have not yet begun work on. Please inquire as soon as possible. Buyer is responsible to carefully check all details on the proof I send. Lace and Yarn by Betsy Busch is not responsible for any mistake made by the buyer. With that said, if you are unhappy with your final product for any reason, please get in contact with me by either Etsy message or e-mail. I take pride in my work and I want you to be happy with the result!
