I was one who gave up my day job.

I yearned for a simpler lifestyle, and I've enjoyed every one of the 20 years I've been making handmade soaps.

Welcome! MarySophiaGallery is a combination of Deer Run Soap Works (est 1996), mixed with a little romp through time to include handmade items, antiques, collectibles - just a little bit of everything. Until 2011, a friend and I had a small downtown shop consisting of my soap company and her artistic treasures. This is a continuation of that shop.

Payments via PayPal, which is a secure online payment system, are readily accepted. Through PayPal you can pay using your credit card or check. You are not required to set up a PayPal account.

You may also choose to make purchases with your credit card, debit card, or Etsy Gift Card directly through Etsy's Direct Checkout.
I try my best to ship your purchase the morning after transaction is complete. I check all shipping options to obtain the safest and cheapest and fastest shipping for each purchase.

NEW* SHIPPING CHARGES: I cannot control the US Postal Service and their continued rate hikes. I have been forced to add a nominal handling fee to each item.

CONFIRMED ADDRESS: I ship only to the address given in your Etsy account unless your purchase is a gift and you specify otherwise. If the US Postal Service cannot confirm your Etsy address, this will delay shipping until I can get your address confirmed. An unconfirmed address will void the seller protection, and I cannot take that chance.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Buyers are responsible for any and all customs/duty fees, VAT or associated charges. I do not collect these fees from buyers, and cannot pay these fees on the buyer's behalf. All shipments will be marked as "merchandise" and an invoice will be included. The buyer is responsible for paying these fees and collecting their packages from their post office/customs office, where applicable. Shipping fees for returned international packages cannot be refunded.

INSURANCE: If the item you are purchasing is breakable, I will ship insured.
Refunds and Exchanges
If, for any reason, you're not happy with your purchase, please contact me BEFORE you leave feedback, as I would love the chance to make it right. My feedback is 100% positive and there is a reason for that. I work closely with my customers to make sure they are pleased with their purchase and want to return for more.

Some things cannot be refunded due to the nature of the product, such as soaps, perfumes and fragrance oils. I cannot vouch for the product integrity once these items have left my store and have been in the hands of others. Most other items are refundable (minus initial shipping charges) and must be in their original condition. If there is a reason why you may need to return an item you have purchased, please contact me first to ask about return policy for that particular item. ***You must contact me within 3 days of receiving item.

Bathing suits: All sales are final.
Additional policies and FAQs
This is a non-smoking environment. Having said that, when it comes to vintage and estate items, I cannot guarantee the conditions at which the item was prior to my ownership.
