Let a little bit of Stuff N Junk bring a smile to your day!

I first used my mother's Kenmore sewing machine when I was around five, mom left my brother's blanket set up in the machine; it was only a few stitches, but I knew it was something I wanted to do! With a little help I have made formal gowns though my teenage years, costumes for myself and cousins during my early twenties, and moved onto diaper bags and baby accessories when my nephew was born in 2005.
As my own children were born I continued making baby accessories and purchased an embroidery machine in order to personalize items and expand my creativity, that's when I found Non Paper Dolls and felt embroidered crafts. My love of creating has grown into what Stuff N Junk by Heidi is today. I hope that my passion for handcrafting items for learning and imaginative play, as well as accessories for all occasions, shines through and brings joy to your home!
I will be adding new items as I create them but always feel free to convo me about something you might be interested in seeing!

    I started sewing young, thanks to the women in my family. I love to sew, although my sewing style has a tendency to change with whatever is going on in my life. I make everything from costumes to diaper bags, felt projects and embroidery.

Howdy Hi! Come join the fun!

Whether you are new to my shop or one of my awesome repeat Stuff N Junkers, thanks for dropping by and showing the love!!!

All of my items are handmade, by me, just to be sure you are getting that extra bit of love you can't find in a big box store. I do have the help of my handy-dandy embroidery machines, as well as my classic Kenmore sewing machine, they aren't just machines, they are my crafting buddies! Once the machines are done with their part, I hand cut and package each item with loving care to be sure it arrives as special as the person that purchased it.

Although I do my very best to ship according to my listed time line, the wonderful people over at USPS tend to get bombarded around the holidays. I work on orders Monday through Friday and although I will sometimes drop off packages on the weekends, I will always do what I can to get your items to you in time for any special events; all I ask is that you are sure to send me a message or leave a note at checkout so that we are working together.

Thanks again for dropping by!
I'm off to make cool things!
Heidi

Returns and exchange details
Let's talk refunds... As much as I want you to L.O.V.E. everything I make for you, I totally get it that computer screens don't always show you just how awesome something is. It can take a lot of time to write out my listings, and try as I might, sometimes details or a description may only be written in a way that I understand perfectly but not so clear to my super fans. I love hearing from you! So if something doesn't seem to be quite the quality I have described, please contact me right away so that we can work together on a fix. The greatest part of being a hand-crafter is that each item is made individually, just like you!
Masks and costume items are considered intimate items and are not available for return.
Personalized items are non-refundable.
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. A refund for the order, less shipping fees, will be submitted through the Etsy system once the item is received. A tracking number is always recommended when returning an order.
Payment
I accept payment using Etsy's awesome direct checkout method to ensure you have lots of ways to pay for your fabulous items!

Are you one of my amazing Stuff N Junkers with a UPS or FedEx account? Never fret! Just send me a message if you would like to use your account for shipping and I will get you all the details you will need to whip up a label.
Shipping
I'm happily shipping orders via standard ground USPS unless otherwise noted. As of 10/15/18 insurance is no longer included with standard shipping due to Etsy shipping fees. With shipping time, most items are received within 5-10 business days (this is the amount of time it takes to get to you once shipped, it does not include time to make the item). During peak seasons (Halloween through Christmas) my creating time gets updated in my shop listings, and I also update my shop banner for any holiday cut offs.

Due to recent issues with international shipping, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery once the item is shipped. As of 1/17/18 I am no longer able to offer "rush" services for international orders as USPS has delayed too many orders causing items to not arrive by the intended date, even with upgraded shipping.

As much fun as it is working with USPS, sometimes things happen. On the rare occasion that your item is lost or damaged during transit, I will work with you to get it straightened out as best we can, because we're a team, you and I. Please understand that USPS does not consider a package "lost" until 30 days after it has shipped, so I do recommend purchasing one of the two priority shipping options if you need your order by a certain date.

Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Hi there Stuff N Junkers! Just a few extra things about me and my shop while you're hanging out.

I am super happy to offer discounts on large orders, but unfortunately I am unable to offer a discount for orders with less than a seven day production time.

I do try to tell myself that I NEVER get sick, but you know, sometimes, being a mom, we just have to admit that it happens. If there are ever delays on my end that will affect your happy mail, I will always contact you right away so we can work it out.

I do tend to be online a LOT. So if you have questions, just send me a message and I will get back to you as quickly as I can. I'm out here on the Pacific West Coast, so if you message me between 1-6 am, I might be sleeping, but you really never know, hahaha. I do work for my family's business during the week, but I'm usually available for a quick question most of the day.

Happy shopping!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Sure, I offer custom and personalized options! If you don't see it in the listing, send me a quick note! I am happy to work with you to create your specially individualized items!

Sizing details

Most sizing details are listed in the details/description section. While I am working on updating my photos and descriptions, always feel free to message me with questions about an item's size or if it is available in additional sizes!

Care instructions

Most of my items are created with Eco Felt. If items get dirty, I recommend spot cleaning with cold water and letting air dry.
I have machine washed masks, games pieces and boards (that are felt only front and back) and have even machine dried them, some pilling will occur and items may loose some of their shape/stiffness.

When Will My Order Ship?

The time it takes to create each item is located in the shipping section, however most turn around times are between 7-10 business days from the date of order.
If you need your order faster, please contact me prior to ordering.

What if I Need My Order Faster?

I understand that things come up and sometimes you will need your order faster than the suggested turn around time. While I do include faster shipping options at check out, if you need your order by a certain date, please message me prior to ordering and include your need by date and zip code or city/state.
I do not offer rush service during peak holiday seasons, between September 1st and December 31st.
