About

Hyphenate | noun | ˈhīfənit/ | a person who is active in more than one occupation or sphere

I'm a hyphenate in name and in spirit. On any given day, I could be active in any of the follow spheres: decorating – entertaining – crafting – cooking – traveling – shopping.

I believe in the saying "Home is where the heart is"... and that you need to put your heart into it to make a home. Whether you find it, make it or buy it - your home should be a reflection of who you are & how you live. I love creating that reflection and obsessing on the details. Design, color, texture, smell, taste, construction, quality, function, form... you name it, I’m captivated by it. The devil’s in the details - words to live by.

My etsy shop is a manifestation of that mission. Well-curated home decor items that add that detailed touch that help a home reflect its owner and his/her passions! Thank you for visiting and please follow as I edit and curate ShopTheHyphenate's inventory.

Happy customers = good business!

While all sales are final, please contact ShopTheHyphenate ASAP if you are unsatisfied with an item received. We'll talk it through and take if from there - exceptions will be handled on a case by case basis. Refunds will not cover return postage or prior shipping and handling charges.

Please also contact me if items were damaged in shipping. I will ask for photos outlining the packing as received, as well as, the broken item(s). As most items in the shop are one-of-a-kind, a refund will be given once the photos are received. I do ask for the photos before issuing the refund as I need these to follow up for insurance purposes.
Payment
Purchases shipped to Maryland address(es) will include a 6% sales tax.
Shipping
✈ Delivery Confirmation and Tracking is available for all US domestic addresses and select international countries (per USPS supported tracking). For domestic purchases where tracking visibility is lost or it appears a shipment has stalled, please contact me so it can be researched. Packages marked as DELIVERED as considered as such and discrepancies should be directed to your local postmaster / station manager. Signature Confirmation is not an included service; should you like it added, please contact me before purchase as there is a small incremental fee.

✈ Shipping costs are based on final boxed weight, package size and the <ship to> location you provide to etsy. Most shop items use "calculated" shipping and have all available USPS service options listed (though it may over-calculate for combined shipping). For heavier items to the west coast, it may be more advantageous for me to ship via FedEx (cannot use for PO Box addresses). Since that is not calculated through Etsy, I will use that service and then refund you the overage. Recycled / previously used packaging may be used to ship your order. If you would like a FedEx shipping quote OR a quote for combined shipping on multiple items, please message me!

✈ ShopTheHyphenate will ship internationally. Most items have the international shipping option listed. Items marked as a GIFT will still have the items and value declared on the CUSTOMS FORM, no exceptions. If you need a combined shipping quote, please message me! Purchases less than 4 lbs will ship via USPS First Class International service. NOTE - there is no guaranteed transit time for this service. International buyers will be responsible for any customs, taxes and fees that may apply to their specific country. VAT is not included in listed costs; these are the customer's responsibility upon receipt. Please see our FAQ for countries with supported USPS tracking / delivery confirmation. Packages marked as DELIVERED as considered as such and discrepancies should be directed to your local postal service manager / station.
Additional policies and FAQs
For items that are marked vintage or antique, ShopTheHyphenate will fully disclose the condition in the description and through photos. When the exact age is known, it will be identified. Otherwise, it will be marked as vintage (minimally 20 years old but likely older). Vintage tableware, serveware and linens are rarely in perfect condition... but that is part of the charm and allure! Please send a message with any/all inquiries or questions.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

The majority of items in the shop (vintage tabletop, glassware, linens, etc) were all manufactured during a time when today's modern cleaning appliances did not exist. Unless otherwise noted on the actual item, it is always recommended that vintage items are hand-washed and any kitchen items are not used in the microwave.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All purchases are appropriately wrapped for safe travel to you (packing paper, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, etc). Recycled may be used based on availability.

Is the purchase a gift? Please let ShopTheHyphenate know! We typically include a packing list BUT we can include a personalized note and omit all pricing / invoice information on the receipt. However, we will not omit pricing information on customs forms for International shipments.

Delivery confirmation

Domestic U.S. Shipping
All domestic labels purchased on Etsy automatically include USPS Delivery Confirmation.

International Shipping
Delivery Confirmation is included for Priority Mail Express International service. Delivery confirmation for other levels of USPS service are only available to the following countries: Australia, Belgium, Brazil*, Canada, Croatia, Denmark*, Estonia, France, Finland, Germany, Gibraltar*, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Hungary, Israel, Italy*, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg*, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal*, Singapore, Spain, and Switzerland. {An asterisk indicates that service was temporarily suspended on June 12, 2014, per USPS}

The condition notes mention {crazing} - what is crazing?

Crazing is a network of lines or cracks in the glaze or surface layer of a piece. It can occur in vintage tabletop and decor if the body of the piece contracts at a rate different than the glaze - typically due to a rapid change in temperature of the piece. Occasionally discoloration or stains can accompany a crazed piece because of the cracks in the glaze. This too will be noted in the condition notes.
