Clothing measurements are taken flat and doubled where appropriate.
Shoe measurements are primarily taken insole, meaning I put the measuring tape inside the shoe and press it along the foot bed. I always specify if the measurements are insole or outsole.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
Please be aware that after you purchase an item within Etsy, you still need to click the payment method or "Pay with Paypal" button in order to complete the process.

METHODS
You can use a credit card to pay through Paypal without having a paypal account (as of this date). Many of my customers are first time "Paypalers" and I assure you that the interface is generally self explanatory. I'm happy to answer questions along the way.
I also accept checks and money orders, checks must clear before your item is shipped.

DEADLINES
If payment is not made (or initiated / arranged) within 24 hours of the transaction, the sale will be canceled and the item will be relisted.

CANCELLATION POLICY
I understand that purchasing errors are made from time to time. Please have the common decency to contact me right away if you have changed your mind and you wish to cancel your unpaid (or paid but unshipped) purchase. If you do not contact me within 48 hours to cancel, NEGATIVE FEEDBACK will be left for you, stating that you are a deadbeat buyer.
Shipping
Most clothing items ship in tyvek envelopes. Shoes ship in tyvek or in boxes, depending on how durable they are. I try to reuse as many packing materials as I can. Your package may contain Christmas wrapping from my sweetie, newspapers from the 1970's or the cardboard box from the cereal we finished this morning. The packed results are usually ugly.

☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼ DOMESTIC

Items paid with Paypal ship with delivery confirmation number emailed direct from Paypal. Delivery confirmation provides you with a tracking number, which can often allow you to check the status of your package online. Please note that USPS does not always scan the package at various stages of delivery, they are only responsible for scanning at the final delivery point, often this is the first appearance.

METHODS
In general I ship via USPS using this system:
Lightweight items ship via First Class Mail
Heavier items (such as jackets or shoes) are shipped differently based on location:
Priority Mail if you are near the East Coast
Parcel Post if you are near the West Coast

Please convo me if you have a rush deadline and/or need to clarify or change the shipping method or timing.

DEADLINES
I generally ship domestic packages very quickly, same day or next day. Orders placed on Fridays may not ship till Monday. Please let me know if you have a special deadline.

INSURANCE
Please convo me if you wish to add insurance to your order.

☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼ INTERNATIONAL

METHODS
USPS has done away with "slow boat" economy shipping, the rate you see in the listings is currently the cheapest rate available: USPS First Class International. They estimate delivery time as 7-10 business days.
Packages over 4 pounds ship USPS Priority Mail International, same 7-10 day estimate.

DEADLINES
PLEASE NOTE, I ONLY SHIP INTERNATIONAL TWICE A WEEK! It requires a special postal trip due to customs forms. If you're in a rush, please convo me and I'll do my best to accommodate you.

CUSTOMS FEES
The buyer is responsible for any customs fees that may be due in your country.

CUSTOMS FORMS
I am well known at the local post offices and in filling out custom forms I cannot lie and mark your purchase as a gift. My apologies.

CUSTOMS DELAYS
In some countries (Hello Canada!) your item may be delayed in your customs department for as long as 6 to 8 weeks (Yes, that's you Canada!). Canada, Eastern Europe and parts of Scandinavia are especially problematic.

CANADIAN NOTE ABOUT DELAYS
See above. I feel for you.

INSURANCE AND DELIVERY CONFIRMATION
Is not available on international items.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns are accepted, but only under the following conditions:

You must contact me to initiate the return within 3 days of receipt of the item.
The item MUST be shipped back within 4 business days of initial receipt.
The item must be packed well and returned in THE EXACT condition it was shipped in.

If the conditions above are met, I will reimburse the purchase price of item only, the buyer is responsible for the cost of shipping both ways.

All items are used and will show evidence of light wear. I try to note instances of heavier wear or flaws. If you feel I have misrepresented an item's condition, please contact me and I will do my best to resolve the issue.

HOLDING ITEMS
In most cases, I am happy to reserve items for you for up to 7 days.
