Life is full of small pleasures ...
Polly Danger is a maker of button earrings, bow bookmarks, diy kits, and general small delights. I believe that like the colors of the seasons and the songs of birds are proof that beautiful things don’t need to be expensive.
For me the loveliest things are the small ones, because they add up to a great big life of joy. I make very small things, but my hope is that they bring each customer a piece of their own great big joy. There is something so sweet about the anticipation of getting a package in the mail, something so lovely about waiting for just the right moment to open it (or not being able to wait at all), and something truly thrilling about the crinkle of a glassine bag as you hold it in your hand, oohing over the foggy treasure inside. Those moments are why Polly Danger exists.
Polly Danger began in 2006, when I lived in San Francisco. I didn’t have much money to spend, but when I did have a bit extra, my favorite thing to do was buy chocolates or macarons from some of the lovely shops near my house. The colors and smells in the shop were part of the joy, and the sound of the bags was something I could carry with me as I took my treats home. The actual taste was the very final bit of pleasure and I savored it as long as I could. This was the very beginning, the very first kernel of what Polly Danger has become today; a shop full of very sweet, quite small pleasures that come to you in lovely, crinkly packages, to be savored and enjoyed as you see fit.
Each item in this shop is made by me, Polly Danger, in my sunroom-turned-studio, in a little town outside of Portland, Oregon. I take great pride in making beautiful treats that are meant to last the test of time while still being affordable to every size pocketbook.
I'm Polly, a mover and shaker, maker of bows and button earrings, kits, accessories, tutorials and general cuteness. I'm headquartered in a crooked old house in a small town halfway between Portland and the rugged Pacific Ocean.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING: Please allow up to 2 WEEKS for delivery for all items. Your package will likely arrive in less than 7 business days, but please plan for a little extra time, just in case the U.S. mail gets bogged down, which happens from time to time. If you need your item sooner I am happy to upgrade your shipping to Priority Mail at your expense- just convo me!
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Please allow up to 4 WEEKS. It rarely takes that long, but some countries take longer to receive packages than others (Ex. Australia vs. Canada). Items occasionally get caught up in customs, for which I cannot take responsibility. Upon shipping your item I provide a U.S. customs number which allows you to track your package until it leaves the U.S., but in most cases you cannot track the package into the country of destination. I have only very rarely had any issues with international orders, but it does happen from time to time. Thank you for understanding.

Items made of vintage fabric are subject to the effects of time; that is they are sometimes slightly worn, stained, or otherwise not pristine. I love age-worn fabrics but would never use any that would compromise the structure of the item.
