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.

    I like to rescue, yes, not only animals but trash too! I am an avid recycler at home and I incorporate this into my business too.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 14, 2013
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

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 do have a day job so my creative juices flow all day long.

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.
