Attic salt and literary curiosities from the desk of Uncle Kate.

Greetings. Thank you for visiting my shop and checking out my story.

My name is Kate (she/her) and I've been selling on Etsy for 15+ years. This shop is not only a passion project but it is my full-time job. It shines the spotlight on some of my greatest loves - reading and writing.

I have always been an avid reader (I grew up with Beverly Cleary, Judy Blume, and Gertrude Chandler Warner). I wrote (very bad) poetry as a child and as an adult I write short stories in the surreal/magical realism vein. I also have a novel I've been "working on" for many years.

It is important for me to showcase women and queer creatives, so all of the books you see in this shop are written by women and non-binary authors.

<B

Returns and exchange details
Refunds and exchanges are a case by case basis. All items are packed with the utmost care.
Shipping
All paper items (zines, stickers, post cards) are posted with good old fashioned stamps and do not come with a tracking number. "Non-machinable" items (buttons, etc.) are shipped using Etsy's USPS shipping labels and are trackable vis USPS First Class (or Priority) Mail.

Please check and double check your work. I am not responsible for items lost or returned due to errors in the shipping address. Should your parcel be returned due to a typo on your part, you accept fault and will be charged for shipping a second time.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, PLEASE NOTE. The cost to ship non-machinable items abroad comes with a hefty price tag. This is beyond my control, as USPS shipping rates have quadrupled since I first started selling on Etsy. Forgive me, and forgive the post office.

If an order is sent back to me, the order will be refunded (minus shipping). You can re-order if you wish, ensuring the mailing address is correct.

When parcels leave my hands, I cannot be held responsible for reckless mail couriers or beasts roaming in the night. However, if your items arrive damaged, send me a photograph and we will find a remedy.
