Poladora's SECTIONS:

S.I.S.S.Y. stands for Sensory and Immune System Stimulating Yarns. These are primarily yarn based crocheted blankets, throws, pillows, and accessories designed to stimulate your senses. Items are designed for newborns through adults. Some of these items are made to order. No two SISSYs are alike! You choose the color scheme - I choose the design. Just order off of the listing if its custom - then we convo the details together. The SISSY slogan: "I'm a SISSY so you don't have to be."

The GLASS CEILING has everything and anything glass that is born out of the lampwork torch (technically a "burner"). I create marbles, beads, terrarium toys, zipper pulls, jewelry, wine bottle stoppers, pens, letter openers, mini paper weights, and more... Only the best available raw glass is used for my creations. These items will be "ready to buy" as listed.

The BOUTIQUE covers everything else...other jewelry, anything made out of fabric, accessories for both home and self, hiochol treasure boxes, adorned clothing, and more. These items will also be "ready to buy" as listed but lend themselves to additional creative alchemy requests.

CHRISTMAS ANYTIME offers holiday items any time of the year - it's never too early to begin to stock up and plan ahead! Here you will find some items to fit any holiday theme - Christian, Jewish, Islam...

BOO TO YOU is for that little Halloween bug in all of us. Halloween has become one of the most popular holidays of the year in terms of decorating and having fun. Shop here anytime to plan ahead!

VINTAGE is for those who love to collect tidbits of vintage or antique description. All of the pieces in this group are from either myself and my family or from the vintage 70's house we purchased that was owned by one person and was like a step back in time. Everything here is in mint condition and as we redecorate more to my liking, I will be offering some of the pieces I won't be using to help me fund my decorating project.

SALE is where you go to find items that have been drastically marked down from their original price to move them along to make room for more goodies from my studio. Items in the SALE section will be from any price category. Remember...even in this section, you can pick up a bargain and still purchase "one-of-a-kind" items. Items in this section still qualify for any general promotions of Poladora.

BOXED IN is something I've just added. I've decorated a variety of boxes with a multitude of materials to create truly unique and reusable gift boxes for that truly special gift. Or, keep the box yourself to store little treasures. Items to be listed shortly.

Crazy Containers is also new. I repurpose household and gift containers by removing their original labels (or covering them), and decorating them with artistic flair. Once I've added artwork to the container, I triple coat the item with a clear gloss coating to protect the art. Rinsing with clear water and air dry is recommended for these containers. Items to be listed shortly.

Zentangle is a variety of artistic creations based on Zentangle. In addition to OOAK Art, I also will add Zentangle to any item you desire. Just ship the item to me and I will "tangle" the item to the moon and back, and ship it back to you. A personal convo is necessary to set this up.

Thank you for visiting "Poladora"! I hope you find something in my boutique that you'd like to adopt for life. You can expect the following from Poladora:

I will never create/make/design/sell the same thing twice. Variations maybe, but not exactly the same.

I will never use a material I don't love - not even as a transition item or a blender.

I will never sell something I am not proud of.

All of my work will be exposed to "Annie", my Service Dog. (She helps me with my work.)

I do not and will not prewash any fabric used in my creations. If the item is made with fabric, it will look and feel new.

I will only use top of the line, quality materials in everything I do. (Yes, this makes things expensive - but it's worth it.)

I will make a few inexpensive items for the shop for those who have a smaller budget but want to get in on the fun of owning something from Poladora.

I work and live in a smoke-free environment.

I want your shopping experience to be fun!

Shipping
I use the USPS Priority Mail "Flat Rate" shipping method and containers for all orders under 70 lbs. I will know when I list an item for sale, which size box will best fit the shipping needs of the item. I will list the shipping price with the item accordingly. If you adopt more than one item from Poladora at the same time, I will do my best to combine items in the same container to get you the best shipping rate possible.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to love an item I've created as much as I do. True love goes into every one of my creations. As a result, most items are "named". This creates the feeling of having "adopted" one of my creations. This enhances the buying/selling experience for both of us. I will consider returns on a case by case basis in this spirit.

Made to order items, such as things in the "S.I.S.S.Y." line, are custom made just for you under prearranged and agreed upon parameters, and are not returnable.

Shipping Losses: If you have a damage or loss during the shipping process, you will need to work directly with the shipping service on any dispute. I will do everything I can to help you through that process, such as provide information, etc.
