About

Taking the plunge with Etsy.

I have so many passions. I need to really narrow them down a bit but it's just hard. I like sewing and I like buying things that have stories in them that's why I have a vintage section in my shop. I also have a section called revisions for those things that I have improvised.

I have always been sewing ever since I can remember. I love fabrics. I can't seem to get away from buying fabrics. Please somebody stop me. I feel like I'm in candy land when I'm in a fabric store. So many fabrics.... so little time!

Many moons ago (in a galaxy far, far away) I've learned to sew just watching my Mom. She was a seamstress. As a young girl, I watched her cut fabrics without patterns. Just randomly out of her head she designed dresses. I watched and learned but the wind took me to a different place and got real busy living life.

I have acquired excellent different skills over the years working for Corporate America. Doing that, I have put my passion for things that I love to do in the back burner. But these passions haunt me at all times specially when I come across creative works done by amazing creative people on the planet. Then I tell myself: "Oh, that's easy. Even I can do that..." Suddenly, my Etsy shop was born!

When I'm not doing crafts, you'll find me in the kitchen. I love cooking vegetarian food. I have a website focused on vegetarian lifestyle to encourage people to eat healthy so we are not chained to medications. I feel good knowing that I can help people in the process.

That website is www.vegetarianyums.com. Another passion of mine is making videos. I have two YouTube Channels. The links are on my website. I am also a published author and you can find my book here: http://www.amazon.com/Pura-De-Franco/e/B00IOQDJMI.

I try to make my crafts as organic as possible without the use of chemical adhesives and sprays. I avoid leather, fur or feathers. I'm comfortable when I use products without the animals being involved in the process of making my crafts. I don't like the thought of an animal suffering or dying just for the sake of fashion.

Though, I like to collect seashells as we live near the beaches. Seashells are gathered on the beach by nature. It's totally humane.

So you see, I can't keep creating things without getting rid of them... otherwise, I'd be in the next episode of 'hoarders'. So I took a plunge with Etsy. Help me get rid of all this stuff and compensate my time and effort a little bit. My handcrafted items are a true labor of love... handmade in the glamorous Hollywood Florida USA, from my hands to yours.

Thank you for reading. To find your way back to my shop, please go here: http://www.puranco.etsy.com

Hi there! I am back here on Etsy after a full year of rest due to our relocation from New York to South Florida. We now have a big workshop and playground to do all my Etsy stuff. So yeah, welcome to our puranco Etsy shop! Please browse and see if you like something. Convo me if you have a question! Peace.

ALL sales are FINAL. My store is not a big business conglomerate, it's just a little spot here on Etsy to showcase my passion and hobby with hopes to make extra bucks from it. If you are not satisfied with your purchase please contact me ASAP via Etsy Convo or eMail. I am a person before a business woman and I want you to be happy with your purchase. Please email me 'if you have any questions' prior to buying.

Digital items are downloaded instantly after they've been paid.
Payment
PAYPAL is my preferred form of payment. It is by far the safest method of payment for you the buyer and me the seller. Please make sure your address is confirmed on Paypal.

Credit Card payments are also welcomed and enabled. Thank you for your purchase.
Shipping
Basically, 1-2 business days handling time is do-able, unless the items are purchased on weekends. Normally I ship Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday to get your purchases get to you fast. The items are shipped from South Florida, United States.

NOTE for International Buyers: Your items may take a little longer than 4-7 weeks to arrive at your shipping destination due to rules and regulations that are beyond our control.

Customer satisfaction is my priority. If there are any problems with your purchase, please contact me either via an Etsy convo. I appreciate your business and would love to have your customer loyalty and positive feedback. If for whatever reason you feel you cannot leave a positive feedback, please notify me before leaving neutral or negative feedback and I'll do my best to rectify the situation.

Peace.
