Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
All items are sold “as-is.” All sales are final. However, if you believe that an item was incorrectly described, please contact me for a resolution within three days of receipt of the item. Our goal is to for you to be 100% satisfied and happy with each purchase!
We accept PayPal. If you have a credit card but don't have a PayPal account, see these instructions for paying through PayPal with a credit card: .

Payment is expected at point-of-purchase. If for some reason payment has not been received within twenty-four hours of sale I reserve the right to cancel the sale and relist the item. Items will not be shipped until financial transactions clear.

Once you’ve made your purchase, please don't forget to leave feedback when you receive your item(s)! Giving and receiving positive feedback helps sellers and buyers create a solid reputation. I will always leave you feedback as soon as payment clears.
We ship worldwide! We are also happy to combine shipping for multiple purchases. Contact us for a shipping quote and we will set up a custom listing just for you prior to purchase. Shipping is provided through the United States Postal Service (USPS). We will ship your items within three days of payment. We reuse and recycle clean and robust packing materials whenever possible.

If you would like to have your items faster, we recommend USPS PRIORITY MAIL. Contact me for a quote.

We are not responsible for lost, damaged, or misdirected items. The buyer is responsible for providing an accurate ship-to address, as well as requesting and purchasing insurance (and we highly recommend it for higher-end items or breakables). If you would like insurance, please contact us for a quote.

Shipping for Housewares and Other Items:
The price for domestic (within the U.S.) shipping for the individual item has been quoted in the item's listing. For multiple item purchases, or for international purchases, please contact us for a shipping quote. Again, insurance is recommended for breakable items.

Shipping for Patterns:
All patterns will be shipped in a protective poly sleeve. Depending on the method of shipping, the pattern may also have a new or reclaimed cardboard backing to protect it from shipping damage (shipping in a rigid Priority Mail box eliminates the need for the cardboard backing).

Additional policies and FAQs
We accept custom orders on some handmade items, and this will be noted in the listing. Just convo us for details.

Please understand that handmade items are not machine-made and sometimes will have slight variations that do not affect the integrity and beauty of the piece.

Please also understand that if an item is "vintage” it generally means that the item has been used and/or may show signs of age. Although an item may an appear to be flawless or near-flawless in photographs or scans, upon closer inspection it may show signs of wear due to age, use, storage, or display ("shelf wear"). We strive to note obvious imperfections or signs of use in the listing. If necessary, we lightly clean housewares and other items, but deeper cleanings will be left for the buyer to do at his or her discretion.

All items are currently stored in a smoke-free environment. Due to the fact that items come from many different sources, we cannot know for certain what elements they may have been exposed to in the past. Please remember this information if you have allergies (and we have allergies, so we understand!).

Thank you for stopping by! We look forward to serving you.
