Thanks for visiting BOOKMARK &.

Below is the *What You Can Expect When You Buy From Me* section. I encourage you to read through it, and convo or email me ( if something is not clear to you.


What you see in the listing is the exact item you will receive. If you would like further information, or another photograph from a different angle, please do feel free to ask.

My handmade items are one of a kind. I'm happy to make another like one already listed, on request, but it won't be *exactly* like the first. Many of the beads used for my bookmarks I have had for years and may be unable to duplicate, and I have only one each of my vintage items.

Returns and exchanges
I hope you are not just satisfied, but delighted with your purchase.

If you are unhappy with your item for any reason, please notify me and send the piece back in unused condition within 14 days, and I will refund your purchase price, less shipping.

PayPal is a third-party credit card processor that keeps all of your transaction information secure. You do *not* need your own PayPal account to use the credit/debit card service.

When you see something you like and decide to purchase with an echeck or credit/debit card, choose the PayPal option in checkout.

This is a two-step checkout process: 1. First, you 'buy', or 'place your order'; 2. then you follow the link to 'pay now' with Paypal. Your order is not actually placed until you've completed this final step.

Echecks can take several days to clear. If you have questions about how all this works, let me know and I'll be happy to help.


I accept only United States Postal Service Money Orders.


I do accept personal checks, but please realize that these can take up to two weeks to clear, and that your item will not be shipped until then.


Do let me know if there are any problems with your purchase or payment. If I haven't heard from you and payment isn't received within three days of purchase, the transaction may be cancelled and the item relisted.

I can be reached via an Etsy convo, or at bookmark [!at]

Your packaging is likely to be recycled; it may not be beautiful (or it might be beautiful, depending on what I have at hand) but it will do the job well.

If you prefer new to recycled, just let me know before the item ships.

Complimentary gift packaging is available on request.


Your purchase will be shipped within three business days after payment clears.

I do my best to keep shipping costs as low as I can while assuring the safe arrival of your purchase. I use USPS First Class mail with Delivery Confirmation for lighter items (bookmarks) and I'm happy to combine shipping.

[I'm still working on which shipping service to use for heavier items.]

The shipping charge includes the costs of shipping, handling and packaging.

Each item has shipping costs listed; some will cost more and/or ship by different methods than others, according to value, fragility, and packaging needs.

If you have a special shipping request, convo me prior to your purchase and we'll work out pricing, etc.

Please be certain that the address you submitted during checkout matches your Paypal address. You can add alternate addresses to your Paypal account; if you need assistance with this, let me know.

If your Paypal shipping address and Etsy shipping address do not match, I will not ship the item until you have confirmed the correct address. I want you to get your item!


My shop is quite new, so I haven't encountered this yet. I'm working on shipping estimates around the world; if your country isn't up yet, just send me a note.

Before purchasing, it's important that you be aware of customs information, including any fees that may be incurred on your end; these costs will be your responsibility. Check at your local post office or on the web for this information.


I am happy to make special arrangements. If you would like insurance, or super-speedy shipping, please contact me at the time of purchase (or, better yet, *before* purchase) for a price quote.

Third party shipping is available for gifts. Please let me know the address to ship to, any note you would like on a gift card, and the address to which I should send the invoice.


Local buyers are *especially* welcome! Contact me before purchasing, if possible, to arrange for pickup. This way I can remove 'shipping' from the invoice, and we won't have to redo it.
Additional policies and FAQs
These items come from a smoke-free but pet-infested home. Since my items are hard-surfaced, this should not be a problem, but if someone in your household is extremely allergic to dogs, cats, or birds, you might want to unpackage before taking it inside. I can't guarantee that some unseen fur, fluff, or dander won't find its way into the wrapping.
