Sandalamoon

~ Pocket Belts, and Unique Accessories ~

Colorado, United States | 443 Sales

Announcement    Hello! After a long hiatus I am back and inspired to make more... I specialize in handcrafted pocket belts and one of a kind accessories. All my belts are designed to hold a lot of items, and most will replace your regular purse or handbag for a hands free life! Due to Covid I have decided to create some custom mask products as well. I live in a rural part of Colorado with a low case count and my household does not work outside the home so you can feel safe buying from me and using the products right away. Thank you!

Everything here has been designed and handmade by me, Tara Sandala. My inspiration comes from the various artists and free spirits I have met over years of attending full moon gatherings and the festival community. I hope my work inspires you too. Thank you for stopping by!

A note about pricing. I love creating handmade clothing and accessories. One reason is because I have the opportunity to create a piece that is made right and built sturdy! I use quality thread and interfacing, and take the time so it's made to last. I design everything myself, and spend time searching for just the right materials. You may find another place to stretch your dollar, but I think you'll be happy you bought from me. I see my work being worn for many years, and traded among friends enjoying many lifetimes. Isn't that worth paying a little extra?

About Sandalamoon

Sales 443
On Etsy since 2010

Creative design inspired by you!

I love festivals! Music festivals, art festivals, renaissance fairs, local art fairs and everything in between. Something magical happens when people come together to listen to fabulous music, share in some beautiful art and enjoy a weekend together in nature or at a neighborhood park. Where do you go for inspiration?

I am so inspired by all the creative people I've meet over the years. From professional artists to everyday crafters, creative people are everywhere. Wherever I am, I find inspiration in how others around me are creating art and expressing themselves. What inspires you?

    I absolutely love making cool art which is both useful and practical. I've always admired costumes and various forms of unique self-expression. Everything I know about sewing I've taught myself. I'm always experimenting to invent something new.

Welcome. I have been sewing, crafting and making art for myself and friends for over 20 years. 14 years ago I stumbled upon a beautiful community of artists at various full moon gatherings and drum circles from San Diego to San Francisco. These experiences have been such an inspiration to me, and I strive to create beautiful items that will be danced in and loved. When I discovered Etsy, I knew this was something I wanted to do. The ability to sell my handmade art to people across the country and the world is a daily thrill. I greatly appreciate your support and welcome any feedback about how I might improve my shop for you.

Returns and exchange details
REFUNDS

I do not offer returns or exchanges on face masks due to Covid. If upon receiving your pocket belt or other non-mask item and you really don't like it please contact me right away and we will work something out. If I make a customized item just for you with your choices of fabrics/colors etc. I do not accept returns on those items as I send photos throughout the design process so you are sure you like it. Otherwise you may return it for a refund or exchange as long as it is in new and unwashed condition.

I only offer refunds if the item is in unused and unwashed condition. No refunds will be given for custom orders but I will exchange it for store credit if I can resell it.

Please carefully check the fit and measure. I will be happy to alter it to fit better if I can but I can also do that before shipping it the first time, so save yourself some time and shipping cost. Double check...

You will need to pay for return shipping if you decided you just changed your mind, unless I've made a mistake in which case I will correct the situation. If you wish to have your purchase modified after receiving it, I will alter it for you, or create something new, as long as you pay for additional work.

I want happy customers! It is my dream to create the perfect item for you so if your unsure ask, and I will work hard to create your vision.
Payment
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
DIRECT CHECKOUT OR PAYPAL
My shop accepts payments with either method. If you wish to use paypal but don't have a paypal account that's no problem. When you checkout select paypal as your method, then select "checkout as a guest". Paypal accepts all major credit cards or you can setup a payment directly from your bank account. Please pay soon after purchase so I can ship you your new treasure!

LAYAWAYS AND HOLDS
If you would like something in my shop but don't quite have the money I do offer layaway. You can make payments, which means basically you pay me until you've saved up for a specific purchase. Once you've finished your payments I'll ship it to you! Once you've made a deposit for an item I will either remove it from sale in the shop if it's already been made, or begin your custom order so you'll get it soon. Custom orders can take weeks so this is a good way to spread out the cost. I do not offer refunds on Layaway payments!!! Once the payment is made it becomes store credit which you can use towards your originally intended item or change your mind and purchase something else.

If you're eyeing one of my one-of-a kind pieces and you want it held from sale while you save up for it, I ask for a deposit of half. You have up to 6 weeks to pay the rest, and no one can buy it out from under you!

REFUNDS AND STORE CREDIT
I don't offer refunds on custom orders unless the item is not as described, damaged, or in some way misrepresented. Refunds must be requested within 2 weeks of receiving your item! You may receive an exchange for store credit or the opportunity to have the item altered. See refund policy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Shipping
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
*US customers*
once you pay I will ship it off within 1-3 business days except custom orders which can take up to a month to create (see current timeframe estimates in listing). Items will be shipped according to chosen method at checkout. In the event of a delay or loss I will work with you to find out what happened to the package and replace with something of comparable value if necessary. Price for shipping priority mail includes insurance so I can make you a new item of replacement value or offer another item to you that is available in my shop. I do ask you to wait 8 weeks to be sure it is really lost before replacement.

**International customers**
Priority mail is faster, more reliable, and offers tracking, insurance and loss recovery. If you wish to combine items for a lower shipping cost, you can message me for the lowest quote possible. If you choose to ship first class mail international, I cannot be responsible for losses. Be prepared to have shipping take 6 weeks or more.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you so much!!!

Additional policies and FAQs

Please be aware custom orders can take up to 4 weeks to complete, depending on my current workload. I can incorporate your own materials as well! Ship me a special fabric piece and I will add it right into the item, just ask!
