Here at Etsy, I sell made-by-me art pieces that are ready to hang or display and my photography prints. I use archival materials and repurpose vintage and antique frames to make durable, inexpensive art.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
So sorry, but no returns/exchanges on framed items - I do try to describe and photograph my items as accurately as possible, but if something ain’t right – please email me and I will do my best to fix it! If a print is damaged in transit, I will replace it no cost after the damaged one is returned.
Paypal only, this includes all manner of credit cards and e-checks and you don’t have to sign up for an account. Once you have selected an item for purchase, click on the Paypal link to pay for the item and finish the transaction. As I only accept Paypal, payment is expected immediately, but I can hold or reserve something for you if you need more time - just email me!
I ship super fast (usually it's on its way the next business day) and I make every effort to package your item professionally and get it to you safely. I recycle clean, useable shipping materials, but mostly use bio-bubble bubblewrap and sturdy boxes. International buyers are responsible for their country's customs/VAT fees.

If you need an item gift wrapped, let me know in the 'note to seller' during checkout. I use recyclable plain brown paper, a ribbon and can include a purty card with your text. I no longer include a printed invoice in the package, but if you need one - let me know in the 'note to seller' during checkout and I will be happy to include one.

I refund the shipping overage on multiple orders promptly. You have two options – purchase the items you desire and I will refund the shipping overage OR purchase the items, but don’t take the final step of going to Paypal to pay. I can then combine shipping costs based on your location and send you a new invoice to pay from.

For customers outside the U.S. - I certainly can ship First Class, but if your item is lost, damaged or stolen – very sorry, but I cannot be responsible for replacing it. If you would prefer First Class shipping, purchase the item and I will refund you the shipping cost difference to you via Paypal, or contact me for a revised invoice with your location/address in the email.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love to do custom orders and wouldn't mind some wholesale ones. On custom orders, I usually ask for half up front. Click that little ol' contact button up to the right and email me. Check out the "items sold" button in my shop to see pieces I've made in the past.
