Shop policies

Last updated on February 3, 2011
Hi! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to review my policies.

For starters, I only accept orders and ship within the United States. This includes payment in US funds from US banks. I apologize if this doesn't sound very nice, but I have had too many issues in the past that have neccessitated this policy, and I honestly don't have time to deal with it anymore.

If you are new to Etsy, here is a great guide to get you started on buying on this site:

Please see my policies below for payment and shipping information. Thanks so much for stopping by and for supporting the handcrafted movement.

And don’t forget to check out my blog at – because there’s a lot more that goes on around here!


Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Due to the fact that I am in the process of closing my business, all sales are final.
All Etsy purchases must be paid for immediately via Paypal. If not, I reserve the right to cancel the sale & relist the item. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh, but I simply don't have time to chase down payment and I like to ship immediately if I can. If you are having any problems paying, please contact me and I will try to work with you to get it straightened out (pesky computers).

If you are new to Etsy and have questions about paying with Paypal, this might help:

Out of consideration for the environment, I no longer print invoices to include in packages. Please refer to the transaction invoice/email you received.

Regarding multiple purchases to the same address: overpayment of shipping charges will be refunded if they are over $2.00.

If your purchase is not paid for immediately, and there is no payment or contact within 48 hours of purchase, I retain the right to void the transaction and relist the item.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I only accept payment from, and ship within, the United States (US funds from US banks). No exception. I do not ask that you understand this policy, only accept it.


All California residents will be charged 9.75% sales tax at the time of payment. Sorry about that…talk to the terminator.

I work full time and am not be able to ship the same day. Most times, however, your purchase will be shipped within 2 business days. If there is a delay beyond that, I will contact you. Similarly, if you need your order soon, please let me know and I will do everything I can to get it shipped right away. **I do not anticipate delays, but want to be upfront in the event of one!** I do not ship on weekends, but sometimes will if my workload allows.

All items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail, First Class or UPS. I am not responsible for lost or stolen items. If you would like to insure your purchase, please contact me and I will send you an additional invoice for USPS insurance.

I will ship to the address on your Paypal account, PLEASE make sure it is correct! If a discrepancy occurs between your ETSY address & your PAYPAL address, I will contact you for clarification, which might delay the shipping of your order.


I'm sorry - I've had too many problems in the past with shipping internationally, so, at this time, I only ship within the United States. Thanks for understanding.
Additional policies and FAQs
::WHOLESALE:: I no longer offer wholesale beyond what is the listed price. Really, right now, it's priced well below wholesale!

::COLOR:: I have tried my best to use photographs that best represent the color of an item, but please know that all computers are different and resolution may vary.
