About LaterOperator

Sales 26,482
On Etsy since 2010

My Story:

Later Operator is a handmade & vintage shop run out of my home in Phoenix, AZ. I am a creator, designer, and animal lover. This shop is my avocation... my obsession.... my relaxation. I opened it in 2010 and I sell a little bit of everything because I can't control my creative adventures. I love to dabble into everything and every style. Most of my vintage pieces come from my Aunt B, who was a gemologist & jewelry collector since 1945. Many of my handmade items are made with vintage supplies. The Later Operator philosophy is make what you love, and love what you do... and other's will, too!

Frequently asked questions

When will my item be shipped?

Your item will be shipped the following Monday from your purchase date. If Monday is a holiday, your purchase will be shipped the next day that the United States Post Office is open.

Can I upgrade my shipping?

Yes, but only on a case-by-case basis and you will be charged for the upgraded shipping. You must message me ~before~ you complete your transaction to assure your needs can be met.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I ship anywhere that the United States Postal Service ships. Shipping rates are stated on each listing and vary on the size/quantity of the item(s).

Can you combine my shipping?

Etsy automatically combines shipping for multiple items.

What happens if my package is lost by USPS?

I do not take responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged merchandise. Every order comes with a tracking number and as soon as packages are scanned in at the post office I do not take responsibility for them.

Can I cancel or return an order?

No. Because I am just one person and I process so many orders a week, I am not capable of accepting returns. Please be SURE of your purchase before you make it, because I also will not honor order cancellations.

Gauged ears / Clip-ons / Allergies

I can change out the hooks on most of my earrings to accommodate gauges, clip-ons and allergies. Please message me for details.
