repurposefulPUNK's Shop Policies


Hi! I'm Carmenmerie and repurposeful PUNK is my shop! My goal is to included upcycled.. repurposed.. or eco-friendly fabric and materials in all of my designs.

Arizona residents please note: there is sales tax on all items. This will be applied directly to PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout invoice.


Payment for all items is expected upon ordering. If for some reason you need more time I can reserve the item for you (but no longer than 7 days) and a firm payment date must be reached. If there is a special situation, please convo me and we can work something out, but please stay in contact. If contact is loss, I will cancel the sale and repost. At this time, only Paypal and Etsy Direct Checkout is accepted.


Items will be sent once payment has cleared. I ship USPS within the US First Class Mail and Priority Mail Internationally. Tracking numbers are always available for US deliveries via your Etsy or PayPal invoice (depending on payment method). International packages to Canada can be very unpredictable in timing for delivery. When I ship USPS International to Canada which is quoted at 6-10 days, but usually takes approximately 3 weeks. Please keep this in mind when purchasing items around holidays as I can not guarantee delivery dates.

I Ship out to the ADDRESS you have listed with your Etsy account. PLEASE Make sure it is the CORRECT address before you Complete PAYMENT or it may go to the WRONG ADDRESS!

Delivery Confirmation is provided on all US bound orders and provides proof the item was delivered to the address provided. I am NOT responsible for delivery problems associated with the Post Office or stolen items delivered to mailboxes or door steps. In these situations, items will NOT be replaced or refunded.

Refunds and Exchanges

I would be happy to accept a return if it is not "as stated" in the listing or the measurements are inaccurate. I do not accept returns for "i don't like it", I but I will honor occasional exchanges for store credit. We do ask that all items be sent back within 5 days of receipt on your end, unworn and in its original condition. There will a $5 restock fee.. since all of our items are one of kind and it takes time to relist each item.

This is a courtesy to my amazing customers...I urge you to still read listings very carefully so you can shop with confidence. Thank you.

PLEASE NOTE: Custom, Customized and/or Made to Order items are non refundable/ exchangeable and the transaction can not be cancelled once purchased.

Items are packed as safely as possible (usually in recycled packaging materials), but if something gets broken in route please communicate that to me! I would be happy to fix it for you or send you a replacement.
