Note from shop owner Hello! I really owe you all a big apology as I had taken my shop announcement off vacation mode prematurely. It has proven impossible for me to work on my shop while living in a small place caring for my baby and working, despite my best intentions. I love making the pockets belts and other fun products I have been offering here. So good news! We are moving to a new home in Colorado where I will have a large space dedicated to this shop and the support from family to give me the time to do so. I am super excited about this transition and hopefully soon I can start giving my Etsy shop the attention it deserves. I look forward to crafting beautiful things for you all in the near future!!! Thank you to everyone who has contacted me over the last 4 years with interest. I really means a lot to me that I still receive these requests. Thank you so much and best wishes from my family to yours.

About Sandalamoon

On Etsy since 2010

Creative design inspired by art.

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 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.

If after receiving your item you want to exchange or return for any reason let me know ASAP and I will work with you.

I have tried to provide detailed descriptions of my products with photos, measurements, etc. However sometimes things just don't fit or work as expected. I will accept my item "returned for store credit" if it is in the same new and unwashed condition, less shipping costs. Do not wash or wear it out until you're sure you want to keep it! I am not responsible for damage by improper care. No perfume or smoke smell, dirt, or wear!

PLEASE notify me within TWO WEEKS of receiving your purchase, that your item was not as expected. A quick email will do! I will work with you if you just don't love it, it doesn't fit or whatever, to provide something of equal value, alter the item to fit, etc...however there is a reasonable limit to what I will do for the stated price and I may ask you to pay for additional work requested.

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 when necessary. Price for shipping priority mail within the US 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 may ask you to wait a few weeks to be sure it is really lost before replacement.

**International customers**
I only ship priority mail internationally. Too many things have been lost using "first class" international as it offers no tracking, and my stuff is one-of a-kind making replacements difficult. Priority mail is faster, more reliable, and offers tracking, insurance and loss recovery. If you wish to combine items for the lowest cost shipping possible, you can message me for a quote.

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

I would love to do a custom order for you!!! If you see anything on my site you like, I can create your own in any color, size, description, etc. Convo me and describe what you're looking for... 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!
