Welcome to Scenic New York's Art and Photography boutique on Etsy.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
Payment is required via paypal within three days of purchase. We reserve the right to cancel and relist on any products not paid within that time. Your order will not ship until payment clears.

Buyers in New York state will be charged their local sales tax rate. At this time, Paypal cannot accurately charge NYS sales tax. Due to this, you will be charged a flat 9% rate on your order, and we will refund the difference between that rate and your actual sales tax rate in your county after payment is received.

We cannot accept a cancellation once a product has been shipped.
Shipping
We ship US Postal Service Priority Mail on all orders unless otherwise noted. If you need upgraded shipping options, please contact us for rates. We typically ship three times per week to assure you receive your order in a speedy fashion.

We ship only within the US at this time for most items-many due to restrictions on shipping to other countries. Please contact us if you are outside of the US and would like one of our items and we will let you know if it can ship. If it can ship, you will be responsible for any duties, fees or charges associated with the delivery of the package.

Your address must match on Paypal and Etsy and we will ship only to that address. If this is a gift order and there is a different address that must be used, please contact us directly.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns must be made within 30 days of purchase. We cannot accept returns on items over 30 days from date of purchase and on custom orders. All returns must be in like new (as received), resalable condition. Buyer is responsible for lost items or damages on returns. Buyer is responsible for return shipping fees and refunds will be for original item price and tax only, initial shipping charges will not be refunded.

Please contact us prior to making a return.

Damage:
If the package has been shipped UPS or FedEx, please note damage when signing for the shipment. If damage was concealed, buyer has 5 business days to report the damage to us so a claim can be made. If the package was shipped via US Mail, please notify us within 5 business days of the damage so a claim can be started. Please do not discard any packaging or the damaged item if an item is damaged, as this will be needed to process a claim.

If we have shipped the incorrect item, please contact us for additional information on the return and exchange.
Additional policies and FAQs
**WE CANNOT SHIP ANY OF THE SUPPLIES OUTSIDE OF THE US**There are numerous laws in regards to the shipping of natural items. Due to this, we will not ship these items outside of the US.

Found/bought/photographed in New York policy:

Almost every item in our shop was either made, found, bought or photographed here in NY.

We are also committed to trying to keep everything as ecofriendly as possible by using recycled/upcycled items like driftwood, pine cones and beach glass as well as enviromentally friendly products like milk paint.

We can offer discounts on wholesale and multiple product purchases. Please contact us with quantites, items and sizes desired so we can get you a price. It is best to include the ship to zip code as well so we can get a freight estimate if it is a bulk order that won't fit in one of our standard flat rate boxes or envelopes.

All of our beach glass items are made from genuine seaglass we have collected from the beaches here in New York. We DO NOT use any of the faux glass that can be found in craft stores, so please be assured that any sea glass you buy from us is the real thing. The only tumbling it's seen was on the shores of Lake Ontario or Lake Erie!

About the natural supplies:
Everything we collect is done in the most sustainable way possible. We harvest the acorn caps after they have fallen and the critters have eaten the acorns, the same with the chestnut shells. If anything is damp, they are set by our fireplace to dry, using the heat we already have on to heat our home or dried on screens in our yard. We collect the pine cones after they have opened and dispersed the seeds. The milkweed and teasel are collected in the fall after most of the seeds are gone, and we leave the silk and seeds in the fields when we have to clean the milkweed pods. Driftwood is collected in reusable totes and dried on screens in our yard by the sun and air circulation, we don't use a kiln or oven and waste natural resources when nature can do the work herself.

About our packaging:
We use newspapers as padding as much as possible, these are papers that we receive weekly as ads, etc and can easily be recycled. For large lots of driftwood, etc, we reuse boxes that we have received items in (we do make sure they aren't dented or torn). For smaller shipments going USPS, we use their boxes, which are "cradle to cradle" certified and recyclable as well. Very rarely we do use bubble wrap or packing peanuts, and these are almost always from shipments we have received.

About the lakes we collect at:
We collect our driftwood and beach glass at both Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. These large fresh water lakes are the last two lakes in the Great Lakes, connected by the mighty Niagara River. They can be wild or serene, but they are always beautiful.

A quick final note after all that: Please be sure to read the listing and view the photos so you are aware of what you are buying. All of our items are exactly as they are collected (they are dried if needed)-they are NOT washed. We leave the cleaning, if needed or wanted, up to the buyer, so as not to waste resources doing the same thing twice. Everything we sell is natural, so nothing is perfect. If you have a question about an item, please ask us, we are happy to answer your questions.

We make the t-shirts and totes that we sell ourselves. If you would like a custom t-shirt or tote to advertise your shop, just contact us and we will work with you on the design. We also offer discounts for bulk orders! Don't see your craft listed? Let us know which saying you'd like and we'll make one for you.

We sell vintage in Ye Olde General Store and Your Vintage Camera, and our photography in Downtime Photography here on Etsy.
