About

Every corsage I make and sell in my shop is full of love and good vintage nostalgic vibes!

I have always preferred "old" things to "new" things and that is reflected in the corsages I make and sell in my little Etsy shop. There is just something about vintage party favors that melt my heart. They are so sweet and simple, and were probably saved because someone loved them, or because of the memory they stirred in someone's mind. It would have been easy enough to throw them away over the years, but instead they were lovingly kept as a little happy treasure - a keepsake of a special day to be reflected on over and over. That innocent happiness is still there in them, and it's a tangible feeling. I wanted to create a way for all that goodness and nostalgia to be passed along again - so they could bring new smiles and memories to new people. That's when I started making corsages with them. It takes me hours to make a corsage, and the longer I work on it, the better I feel. I know I am making something that will transport love over years. They are worn over your heart - and that's where they belong!

Not everything in our life has to be new. In fact, I believe that what we need most of all sometimes is a big blast of love from the past! That's what I want my customers to feel when they untie the ribbon of the box their corsage arrives in. I want them to see something charming. I want their heart to melt. I want their mind to be flooded with happy memories and child-like glee. I want them to feel all the love and best wishes I put into making it. I want them to save it as a token of a special day when they were made happy, and then eventually, pass it along to the next keeper...

I love the tradition of corsages and the nostalgic touches that can be incorporated in them even during these contemporary times. Not everything in our lives has to be brand new. In fact, some of the most charming and endearing objects I know of are little treasures from the past that grace the corsages I create. Those are the types of things you'll find in my shop - and I hope you find something there that is perfect for you.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment via PayPal, Etsy gift card, or by credit card through Etsy. Payment is expected immediately or the item will be relisted. I am happy to accept requests for custom / reserve listings, however they must be purchased within three (3) days of listing. Reserve listings and custom orders not paid for within 3 days will be removed unless prior arrangements are made. Please do not ask for a reserved listing that you do not intend to buy! All taxes, tariffs, or other fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

PLEASE NOTE: If you find that you must cancel an order, you must do so prior to your order being prepared for shipment. Once your order is boxed and postage is purchased, the order will not be canceled or refunded. I purchase shipping labels through Etsy, so you will be automatically notified when your order has been packaged for shipment.

Discounts for special sales events will be reflected in the listed price of each item. No coupon codes will be valid for additional discounts during the sale. Coupons codes, if valid, must be used during checkout. No refunds for coupon discounts will be issued after checkout.
Shipping
I will ship your items within three business days days of receiving cleared payment via USPS. I will pack your item well to prevent breakage, and I do provide postal insurance for all tea cups, a cost that is already calculated into the shipping charge noted on the item listing. Your item will be shipped with a tracking number (for domestic shipments) so it can be located in case of post office delivery delays.

Quoted rates for international shipments from my shop are estimates - and I will refund any shipping fees that exceed actual cost of packing materials and postage. All customs and duty fees are the responsibility of the buyer. International delivery times vary considerably and I make no promises on how long it will take for your package to arrive when shipped outside the U.S. If you need expedited shipping - please convo me for rate quotes. I do not falsify customs forms, so please do not ask.

Shipping charges that exceed the cost of actual postage and packing materials will be refunded once the order ships.
Refunds and Exchanges
I describe the items I sell accurately and I have a "no refunds" policy unless I have misrepresented an item. Please note: many items I sell are vintage and are sold in "as is" condition. Vintage items such as millinery and handkerchiefs that have been sourced from a private collection are not new - many are more than 50 years old. Please read item descriptions carefully because I give detailed descriptions of every item I sell.
Additional policies and FAQs
I always try to accommodate special requests for custom corsages. I have made Mother - Daughter corsages, special matching corsages, and corsages made with items sent to me from clients. Please contact me if you are interested in developing a special corsage. Please note: payment for custom orders is due once a design has been agreed to. Photos of finished custom corsages will be provided prior to shipment.
