About

I live by my own three R's - Reduce, Reuse and Reinvent!

It all started in 2006 when my oldest got married. Planning a medieval wedding isn't easy, it took me 1.5 years to do it but when it was done (and it was amazing too) I had free time at night. A friend at work gave me an old typewriter she was going to throw away and I took it. First I thought it was just cool and was gonna use it as a show piece but the more I looked at it, rather, the more I stared at it, the more excited I got.

With the help of my hubby, he snipped the keys off, filed them flat and voila, instant creativity swirled in my brain.

With that, I really got into the aspect of recycling - people started giving me old games, old books, hardware, legos, you name it - so with some patience, the right tools, and lots of learning curves here I am.

I have so many ideas floating around in my head and I do try to bring them to fruition. I try to introduce a new material use in my shop a few times a year - my latest have been old zippers and watch parts - LOVE them both.

Welcome, welcome and welcome again to The Empty Nest - your shop for geek, fun, kitsch and vintage!

As you can tell from my shop name, my nest is now empty (if you don't include the pooch).

I take pride in making my items and I hope you enjoy them as well! I personally make, pack, and ship everything myself. Customer satisfaction is very important to me, and if you are not happy with your purchase, please contact me prior to leaving feedback. I will be happy to work with you.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept exchanges
Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
I don't accept returns or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
I am not responsible for shipping delays or shipping errors based on information a buyer has on their etsy account (shipping address).

Also once an a parcel leaves my home post office the shipping is out of my control and I urge buyers, if a parcel hasn't arrived, to contact their own post offices. This is especially true for international items.
Payment
In this day and age, electronic payments through paypal are preferred but I will also accept money orders and a personal check; however, items won't be shipped until the check clears/payment is received.

Don't have a paypal account? No problem, you can still pay through paypal without an account. Just go to www.paypal.com.

An order will be cancelled after 3 days of non-payment - I really hope this doesn't happen. I will email buyers and also send convo's to prevent this. Life gets hectic sometimes and I understand that things can fall through the cracks.
Shipping
I know you want to get your goodies quickly so I aim for fast shipping. For US shipments, I ship daily first class with delivery confirmation - you will get a wonderful little email from paypal with the tracking information.

For international orders, I ship USPS first class - unfortunately I can't get a delivery confirmation # so I will email you when the goodies are shipped so you can anxiously await for their arrival! A custom's form will be completed for each international order and the retail value of the item(s) will be indicated. Custom fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

Need a shipping upgrade - no problemo but those charges will apply.

I like to believe I do my part for mother earth so I do like to recycle so you might find some of my packing materials "previously used" (bubble wrap, foam wrap)
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome custom orders and love working on them so please allow two days for completion.

I do not do wholesale or consignment at this time.
