Oddly enough, my own bizarre little corner of Etsy was born out of a desperate attempt to overcome personal adversity and a desire to make people smile. I was the typical 'Type-A' career girl until I had my live turned bum-over-teakettle by the dreaded Fibromyalgia about eight years ago. "Aack! Can't go to my office anymore and feel wretched all of the time... What to do? What to do?" lol I realized a year or so into my personal health yuck that lots of moaning and hand-ringing didn't seem to be doing me any favors, so I eventually discovered the joys of digital art and vintage/kitschy/altered everything.

Being a rather artsy chick felt good, and the stuff I made seemed to make other people smile, so a few years of creative exploring (and a rather scary Photoshop addiction) eventually led to other artsy schtuff. Paper crafts, collage, jewelry-making, and a slew of other mixed-media pursuits followed; if you can paint it, decoupage it, glue-gun it, or throw glitter at it, chances are I've tried it. And in most cases, I failed miserably, looked at the huge mess I'd made, sobbed a little, then yanked on my big-girl panties and tried it again till I made something giggle-worthy. Being a broke-ish crafter has its challenges, though, and hey... this girl's gotta pay the rent! So all of that artsy-fartsy-ish-ness eventually led to my new venture, OddModicum. The name says it all...

ODD - {adj} Different from what is usual or expected; strange.
MOD•I•CUM - {n} A small quantity of a particular thing, especially something considered desirable or valuable.

All of my strange little bits and bobs are designed to make you smile and to make other people look twice. And all my goodies are just as cheap as can be, because I know how hard it is to find lovely, clever, silly stuff on a shoestring budget. So go shopping! Have fun with it! Think about all the people you love who need a 'day brightener', and then make it happen! OddModicum is perfect for gifting because I ship lightning fast from Arizona. I'll wrap it with love (& a little "extra whimsy"!), and send it off for you. They get a smile, you get a smile for making them happy... its just good stuff all around. And then I'll take my profits and buy wildly crafty supplies to make more OddModicum goodies for you to love; I promise!
Lots of Hugs & Hope {cause I love to spread it around!},

Returns and exchanges
We want you happy and smilin' as you wear your Odd Modicum goodies! If anything arrives damaged, or not to your liking, message me and I'll make it right, asap. Please contact me within 5 business days of receiving your item so we can arrange an exchange, return, or refund to ensure that you're happy. I am a tiny shop on a shoestring budget, though, so unfortunately I cannot cover return shipping charges at this time. I CAN, however, make sure that you get something with a little extra 'fabulous!' in your box when your new item is shipped to you!
Timely payment is appreciated so we can ship your items to you as soon as possible. Feel free to message me if you run into any issues, mistakenly buy the wrong item (hey, i've done it! lol), realize after you check your OddModicum cart out that you want to add another item to your order (and don't want to pay shipping twice!), or anything else that you need help resolving.
USPS has posted Dec 20th as the FIRST CLASS shipping deadline for delivery within the continental US by Christmas Eve (Dec 24th). ALL orders placed with OddModicum on or before DEC 19th are GUARANTEED to ship on or before DEC 20th! While I cannot guarantee holiday delivery, the USPS says packages shipped by the 20th should arrive on time to be nestled under your tree! ;) If you're running late and need priority shipping, just message me and I'll make it happen for a small upcharge to cover postage.

*OUTSIDE THE USA? I’ve set up international shipping to ensure that I can ship OddModicum goodies to anyone.. $8.50 flat rate to Canada, $10.00 shipping to 'Everywhere Else'. BUT rest assured; If the shipping charge you pay to OddModicum is in excess of $2 more than what I actually pay to ship your item, I’ll happily refund the difference to you! All additional items in the same order going to the same address are FREE SHIPPING!

*GET IT QUICK! Great for last minute gifting within the US. Super quick shipping (1 business day or less! Slightly longer ship times for custom orders.) from United States, Arizona. But if you need it right away, I'll happily upgrade to PRIORITY SHIPPING within the United States for a small upcharge... message me for details. I'll happily ship any package priority international mail, as well, but the upcharge is much higher. Please message me for details.

*FREE SHIPPING on all purchases (to the same address) after the first item! With such inexpensive whimsical tidbits in our shop, this is a great chance to stock up on stocking stuffers and inexpensive last minute or 'just because I love you!' gifts!
Additional policies and FAQs
*LOVE A SALE? - Me, too! Double check OddModicum's home page & 'About'/'Meet the Owner' page for coupon codes before you check out! I love love love sales, so you never know what you'll find there!

*PERFECT FOR GIFTING - All of our jewelry items arrive quickly on your doorstep, attractively wrapped in Spring Green tissue, stuffed with recycled leopard print decorative paper shred, and topped with a lovely Black & White gingham ribbon. Please message me if item is a gift, and I’ll happily include a gift message of your choice. Click here to get a peek at our oddly adorable signature gift wrap.

*OOAK – A “One of a Kind” listing indicates that the specific pattern of beads, colors, charms, ribbons, etc. will not be repeated, making it uniquely yours!

* CARE & FEEDING OF ODD MODICUMS - OddModicum's unique tidbits are costume pieces, but can look great for years with proper care. In my experience, Antiqued Bronze likes to have a quick gentle buff/polish with a 'Sunshine Cloth' to reduce tarnish from time to time (I get mine at amazon, but they're available widely). It is not recommended that you sleep in, shower with, or submerge costume pieces.

*YA’LL COME BACK, NOW, Y’HEAR? OddModicum is a brand new shop at Etsy, and more items and new product lines are being listed very frequently. So we'd love to see back soon (and often!) so you can peek at all our latest tidbits. Message me at etsy if you'd like to be included on our mailing list for future announcements and sales!
