Announcement    NOTICE ::inventory :: new reserve policy change :: coupon code dynamics
---------------------------
Inventory:
I am in the ongoing process of doing inventory & relisting items. Some items are temporarily inactive now--if there is anything you are looking for that cannot be found, please let me know and I will check to see if it is still in stock then activate or make a custom reserve listing for you.
----------------------------
Reserve policy change:
Starting immediately items are only available for reserve after they have been listed normally for at least 24 hours. I realize this may seem limiting but I believe it will actually make it more fair & equitable for customers overall and it will definitely allow me to be more productive and get many more items listed.
Please note this reserve dynamic applies only to items that are listed normally--the regular items I list daily/nightly without previewing or requests. Custom reserves and existing reserve listings are not affected by the policy change.
Reserves are a courtesy for established customers only. In general, reserves are for up to one week. Longer reserves available by arrangement.
--------------------
Coupon code dynamics: Especially now, with the reserve policy change--the best way to make sure you get the items you want is to purchase them immediately after you see the items appear for sale. Please note that adding items to your cart does nothing to secure the item. (Also note that I can't see the items in your cart.)
I have a coupon code that gives free combined shipping. It allows you to shop on a 'tab'--to make multiple purchases to be sent in a single shipment. (Specific terms of timeframes, etc. are to be discussed--I am agreeable to almost any arrangement.)
If you don't have the coupon code, make an initial purchase and send me an inquiry. The coupon code is useful because you will be able to immediately purchase an item without having to pay the shipping fee all over again.

If you do know the coupon code, please remember there is only completely free shipping on orders that have a pre-tax total of $35. If you use the free shipping coupon code on an initial purchase that is under $35 pre-tax, your order will be held until the $35 threshold is met. (If you decide you would like the item sent before the threshold is met, you will just need to pay the shipping fee, which we can arrange.) The coupon code is meant for free *combined* shipping on orders that have a combined, pre-tax total of at least $35.

I realize this may seem labyrinthine--please ask questions if something is confusing.
-------------------------------------------
COVID-19 era information: Your order will be shipped within the stated time parameters. I am trying to limit my trips to the post office to once-a-week visits, so it's possible your order may arrive toward the latter end of the estimate. However, If you have a "jewelrymergency," and absolutely need your items sooner rather than later, please contact me and I will likely be able to make an additional trip to the post office.

Although I always take precautions with cleanliness, I am using extra measures with the supplies and packaging to make sure they are sanitized prior to shipping. All my envelopes are completely encased in clear packing tape; everything under the tape has been sanitized. For your protection, I suggest using some type of sanitizer on the outside of the package prior to handling with your bare hands.
.......................................................................................

Welcome to my supply shop! I list various destash lots, vintage buttons and beads, and my own handmade polymer clay beads and altered findings several times a week. I specialize in very limited small lots of unique, unusual, and rare vintage beads and components.
I will be happy to combine shipping fees between my jewelry and supplies shops; just send me a convo so I can create a special listing for you. Also, I am always listing new things; if you see something you'd like to add on to your already-purchased but unshipped order, let me know and I will reserve it for you and adjust the shipping fee.

Information on some of the categories and pricing:

"Destash Strands" are beads and items that are what I consider overstock and are priced to move. They are usually grouped by color and type but there may be mixes.

"Destash Lots" are beads and items that may include items for reuse/refashioning, and/or bead harvesting, seconds, and such. There may be a combination of loose and strung beads and components. I will pack the lots securely in baggies as necessary and stuff the smallest size priority box as possible.

"Curated Strands" are beads and components thoughtfully chosen with a theme in mind, such as pairs for earring-making, necklace pendants, or special types.

"Hand Dyed Bone Beads" are bone beads that I color process in small batches using specially blended dyes. The beads achieve a rustic, ageworn patina through a routine that includes many, many rounds of dyeing, color removal, and detailing. The last step in the coloring process is color removal, and it is always followed by repeated rinsing and washing to remove any extraneous superficial dye. The color on the cords that can be seen in some of the photos is due to dye-detailing work I do on some of the strands after stringing. These strands are rinsed and cleaned like the other strands.

In addition, I seal the beads with a small amount of microcrystalline wax after they are processed, and again before shipping. The color is permanent and will not rub off onto skin or clothing with normal use. However, as with any organic or altered item, care should be taken to keep the beads from getting wet and away from any extreme conditions.

Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept returns or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
Returns and exchange details
Generally, all sales are final. I have taken care to document all materials, dimensions, dynamics, and anything that could be perceived as a flaw or imperfection within the photos and item description. I sell rustic, primitive style, intentionally aged, altered, unique, handmade, and vintage components. It's important to take the time to view all photos and read the entire description of each item you plan to purchase. Do not hesitate to ask any questions about items prior to purchase.

I realize there are rare situations in which exchanges may be in order, and such issues will be addressed appropriately. In the event of an exchange, buyer must contact me within 3 days of package arrival and return the item within 7 days of package arrival. Buyer is responsible for the return shipping and reshipping fees on replacement items. Please note that the exchange policy is limited. There are some items that are not eligible for exchange; these include: sale, destash, and custom items.
Shipping
For regular items, I usually ship within 5 business days upon receipt of payment. I usually ship on Saturday mornings. If your order is time sensitive, please let me know either prior to purchase or within a 'note to seller' on your order.

I use the ever-reliable USPS 1st class parcel service with tracking information included. Express services, etc. are available by prior arrangement and agreed upon applicable service and handling fees.

For custom and made-to-order items, it is my general goal to ship within a week and a half of payment. There are circumstances under which it will be shorter than or longer than a week and a half. If turnover time is an issue with your order, please inquire with a convo prior to purchase. I will do everything possible to complete orders as quickly as possible.

If ready-to-ship items are purchased in the same transaction along with custom or made-to-order items, they receive a more economical "combined shipping" rate; they will be shipped when the special order items are completed and will therefore have a longer shipping timeframe. If you would like the ready-to-ship items to arrive more quickly, combine all ready-to-ship items into one transaction and all custom and/made-to-order items into another, separate transaction.

Due to rate increases, policy changes, and delays, I am currently only shipping US domestic.
Additional policies and FAQs
*Reserve Policies and Information*

Generally, my reserve policy is that I will reserve items for established customers up to one week. I will consider reserves to be an agreement or commitment of purchase. Please note that adding items to your cart does not secure the item for you--it is still available for anyone to purchase. The timeframe for reserves is of course subject and amendable to circumstances.

Items must be listed for at least 24 hours to be eligible for a reserve. This does not include items that have been previewed, custom items, or other similarly arranged listings.

If an order marked as "RESERVED" or "CUSTOM" in the title is purchased by someone other than for whom it is intended, the order will be cancelled.
