About

Clothes & Accessories *~Bettie Kawaii~* Kawaii, lolita, geek, fandom + cosplay

Hello! My name is Kate & I’m the designer/maker for Bettie Kawaii, and sister stores Bettie Dreadful (Est. 2009) & Bettie Miniatures (Est. 2015) on Etsy – All based in Western Australia, where I create all of my items in my home studio.

You can often find my fashion label travelling about the city doing local markets & events. I also do alterations & custom made clothing from my home studio aswell. Since 2013 I have been selling online and am thoroughly enjoying reaching a larger market & being able to sell globally.

I am adding new designs every week. I sew and make all my products myself from start to finish. I use lots of natural fibres like breathable 100% cottons, Japanese linens, etc. I love to use vintage fabrics, lace, trim, buttons, notions and allsorts of other items that can add that vintage touch!

And finally and most importantly – my items are built to last. They can be worn over and over again, and if you take care of them they will last you a very long time.

<3 Kate

Payment
We now accept credit cards and Etsy gift cards : )

Payments should be made at the time of purchase & PayPal is my preferred method of payment. If payment is not received within 3 DAYS of your purchase, the order will be cancelled & the item will then be relisted. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns about payments or items.

Any CUSTOMS FEES are buyer's responsibility. Customs fees vary between countries and cannot be controlled by us. It is your responsibility to find out how much or if you even need to pay anything once you receive your item.

Any customs fees for international buyers, are the responsibility of the buyer to research before buying, it is also their responsibility to pay it.

You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal:

You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the “Pay Now” button. Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card without having to sign up for a PayPal account..
Shipping
Items are shipped within 1-4 days of cleared payment, unless item is made to order it can take 1 – 3 weeks depending on work load. We package all items carefully & according to what the item requires. We package all our items with love & care - we try and make it interesting and different - like a special gift coming in the mail :-)

Upgrading: Tracking numbers are available to International buyers, for an extra $6 AUD on request. It is recommended as a way to safely insure your item arrives in good condition and in good time. Some items already include tracking, ask me if youre not sure!

All items are air-shipped only, and take 7-10 business days for International. Sometimes parcels take longer if intercepted by customs upto 2-3 weeks. If you have not received your package within 28 business days please contact us.

Packages within Australia should arrive within 2-7 business days. Tracking numbers within Australia are not necessary as it doesn't take that long to get to it's destination, however if you wish to have one it can be arranged for $6 as per the post office fee.
Refunds and Exchanges
*We do not refund due to change of mind/buyer remorse after the item has been shipped or made/cut, or if the item is a custom piece.

*We accept exchanges for another size as long as the item has NOT BEEN WORN and has all it tag in place, in the same condition it was sent – eg. No holes, rips, stains etc.

*You must contact me within 7 days of receiving item if you need to swap for another size. Buyer must pay return shipping both ways for choice of wrong size. Remember you can always double check with me about which size is best for you!

*Refunds are provided if:
-an item is damaged in transit – note: must show photos of damage ASAP
*An item can only be returned and refunded in due time in condition it was received.
*If an item has not reached its destination after 28 days you must notify me via Etsy immediately. If you haven’t received within 6 weeks (unlikely) then we will work out a solution for you. Sometimes customs, public holidays and weather conditions can slow the postal services down by weeks! Remember you are buying an item that is potentially on the other side of the world and patience is key ordering on-line. : )
*We accept returns on defective, unused items. However items are strictly quality checked before packaging and sending. If an item is broken in transit (unlikely) it is most likely because it has travelled a great distance and the post is not very gentle with our packages!

*I am not responsible for stolen packages AFTER delivery (tracking confirmation) to your address. If that is not a secure place for you to receive packages, that is in no way our fault and you should send your items to a family member’s house or your place of business. I am under no obligation to replace or refund it if it is marked as delivered and then has been stolen by a neighbour, etc.

*If you find your package goes missing after tracking says delivered contact the police immediately and call your local postal delivery headquarters to enquire about lost or stolen packages AFTER delivery was confirmed via tracking. I am obligated to get the item to your country, and to have your postal service gets it to your house. What happens after that is out of my hands. Always make sure there is a safe place for your postie to deliver it to your house.

Frequently asked questions

Want a custom item that's not listed?

Simply convo me! Let's chat! I love custom orders and am happy to make your dreams come true :)

How long will my custom order take?

This depends on the specific item you have ordered or customised. A dress for example will take 1-3 weeks. A small brooch or piece of jewellery can take a week. Rush orders on request!

My item hasn't arrived yet!

If you are not in Australia, an International parcel can take anything from 7 days to 28 days, this will vary depending on customs and public holidays, weather, etc. Postage to Italy can take 6-8 weeks if held up in customs! Please message me if you are concerned your item may not arrive in time for an event or if your item has not arrived after 28 days. I will look it up for you at the Post Office.

Is everything in your store handmade by you?

Yes! 100% completely hand-made by myself, in my home studio in Western Australia. With love and care ;-) Keep up to date with my processes and tutorials at my blog: https://confettibettie.wordpress.com/

How are you implementing Eco-Friendliness into your shop?

I love to use vintage fabrics, remnants & scrap/offcut fabrics, vintage buttons, beads, lace & more! I have also stopped using ALL animal products & limiting/cutting down my use of resins.

I also recycle my inner packaging such as cardboard, bubble wrap & rubber bands. If they are new and clean, I will use the packaging that my ordered supplies have come in!

I will newly purchase the outer packaging at the Post Office, I believe some of their packaging is also recycled paper. I also use brown recycled papers to sometimes wrap my parcels in for that "vintage feel".

I use minimal sticky packing tape, & receipts are given via E-mail only at time of purchase.

I work from my home studio, limiting travel & my commute!
