Phydeaux Designs™ is my (Brenda's) creative fiber lab, experimenting with fiber, color and texture. I make what I love to wear myself: something a little rustic, a little elegant, maybe even a little funky, and hopefully one of a kind.
"Phydeaux" is a term of endearment for my feline family members, my own French version of "Fido," making the more mundane more elegant, a little more funky, and, again, hopefully one of a kind.
Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
If you are less than satisfied with your order, please contact me! Happy customers are very important to me. For the holidays, you and your gift recipients will enjoy hassle free returns and exchanges - return shipping paid by the customer.
If you pay via Paypal, you may pay via credit card without setting up an account, by entering your payment data on the paypal screen that opens up when you place your order. You will not have to set up or use your existing paypal account!
If you pay via Paypal e-check, I will ship your purchase when the payment clears. If you prefer another mode of payment, check the "other box" and contact me! I don't accept checks.
Note! 8.25% sales tax is charged on all orders shipped or emailed to California mailing addresses.
I ship via US postal service, first class delivery. I combine shipping for the best possible shipping price for you!
I ship all over the world! But if your country’s customs laws prohibit the item(s) you purchased, I will let you know so that we can cancel the order.
// DOMESTIC SHIPPING //
I will ship within three to five days days following receipt or completion of order for all domestic deliveries.
// WORLDWIDE SHIPPING IS VERY WELCOME //
I will ship within three to five days following receipt of payment and completion of order. Please note that once your order leaves me, it may take from two to five weeks to arrive, depending on your location, AND that first class shipping doesn't include online tracking service.
If you prefer online tracking and/or priority or express shipping, please convo me for the cost before submitting payment, so that I may adjust the price accordingly.
For international buyers, please note that you or your recipient are responsible for customs fees and taxes assessed by your country. By federal and international law, I must include the actual purchase price of each items on the customs form for each shipment.
Additional policies and FAQs
If your purchase is a gift, no problem - all domestic orders come wrapped in tissue and ribbons. I no longer wrap in tissue and ribbons for international orders, to decrease customs inspections delays. However, if you'd like wrapping for your international shipment, just let me know!
PLEASE let me know that it's a gift! If you'd like me to include a card, please also let me know (no additional cost). But you DO need to let me know the following details: recipient's gender, the event, and what to write on the card. If you want me to ship directly to the recipient, please alert me, so that I will know to not include the invoice and price with the scarf.
// CUSTOM ORDERS //
I no longer accept custom orders. I have very limited time due to a demanding "day job" with a long commute, and a very busy Phydeaux design schedule.
// FAQ's //
My most frequently asked questions are from other sellers or those thinking about selling their designs, asking for advice. I'm sorry that I don't have the time to provide detailed advice and instruction to everyone. I highly recommend reading Etsy's seller's guide: http://www.etsy.com/sell?ref=si_sell
I'm also asked to share my sources for undyed yarn, dyes, commercial yarn, etc. I'm sure you'll understand that after months (and sometimes years) of searching for sources that I'm happy with, I'll decline to share that information.
I'm also asked to share the source for my beloved dress form, which I'm also going to decline, because trying to remain unique and original is so important to me.
My patterns are my own original designs. I spend time and money in developing, testing and revising patterns. I don't grant licenses for you to sell my patterns - or the finished knits from my patterns - on Etsy. (Of course, you may sell finished knits using my yarn or buttons.) You are not licensed to sell your finished knits online, in person, in boutiques, etc. I am the sole licensee and copyright holder to my designs.
Phydeaux Designs patterns are licensed for personal use only: you may make for your own wear or for gifts, but not to exhibit as your own design and not to sell the finished items.
// WHOLESALE AND CONSIGNMENT //
I'm always interested in wholesale! Please contact me via Etsy Conversations or email for wholesale queries and terms. I no longer accept consignment orders.
