These earrings are SO adorable! And the little package it was sent in along with the note was so darling. Definitely will buy from this shop again! :)

These are so beautiful! They're absolutely amazing. I love them. The colors are so vibrant they really stand out and get noticed. I will definitely be getting more in different colors to match everything!

A summer project that stuck!

I started selling on Etsy in the summer of 2006, when I was in a major transition phase of my life and needed something to do and a little extra income. Once things settled down, I just kept going because I was so happy with the whole arrangement.

My shop has always been mostly handmade goods, but over the past year I have started adding a curated collection of vintage finds, as well.

While I am mostly kept busy with mothering, homemaking, and my day job as a social worker, Etsy has been a wonderful constant!

Thanks for your interest in my shop - I hope you find something that you like! Please do not hesitate to contact me via convos or emilyiafrate [!at] yahoo.com with any questions.

Please pay immediately via Paypal so that I can get your package in the mail as soon as possible. Convo me to inquire about special arrangements.
I ship within three days - usually less - and will notify you when your package is on its way. Any foreseen delays will be in my shop announcement.

Since Etsy does not currently have a shipping calculator, prices have been calculated for the furthest domestic point from me, as well as a couple of other locations and a general "everywhere else" for the rest of the shipping zones overseas. This, combined with the mixed nature of items for sale, might occasionally lead to an overage in the shipping charge - if this happens I will always refund the amount.

I reuse and repurpose mailing materials whenever possible, but your packaging will always be clean and sturdy.
Refunds and Exchanges
If your goods arrive damaged (or not at all!) let me know immediately by email or convo and I will send replacements or refund your money right away. I've had only a few problems with my shipping methods in all my years of selling on Etsy, but postal mangling and loss are not completely unheard of. PLEASE let me know if you have a concern so I can fix the problem and file a report if necessary.

I've yet to have this come up, but if you are unhappy with your item because you feel that I've somehow misrepresented the product, I will absolutely accept returns. I will refund both the item cost and the initial shipping price once the item has been returned to me in its original condition.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you see something you like in the "sold" section, or would like something in another color, let me know and I might be able to get you what you want. I welcome custom order requests, skills and materials willing, and have often converted earrings to cufflinks, posts to danglies, pendants to brooches, brooches to hairpins to rings oh my... just ask!

Since buyers have easy access to their invoices, it is not my habit to use up paper printing one for each order. If you do want a paper copy of your invoice with your order, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to include one.

PLEASE leave feedback when you consider the transaction complete - i.e., either you are satisfied with your purchase or we have resolved any problems through email/convos. Feedback is NOT the place to let me know you have a problem - I sometimes do not check my own feedback every week, much less daily! It's very important here in Etsy-land, and it's the only way that I will know if your goodies have arrived safely unless you tell me otherwise.

All items come from a smoke-free, dog-friendly home.
