theMonkeyButtons' Shop Policies


Welcome to my Etsy shop. I make wine glass charms out of old and vintage buttons. I have a button obsession. Old buttons have so much character and personality. Most buttons are mass produced yet every old button has its own story and lived its own unique life. I always wonder what kind of clothing it started its life on! I hope you enjoy my buttons as much as I do.

If you have questions, you can contact me at any time through an etsy conversation or by email at themonkeybuttons [!at]


I accept payment by credit card or check by mail. If you pay by check, your item will not ship until your check clears.

Please pay for your order within three days by credit card. If you pay by check, please have your check arrive no later than one week after your purchase date. After this time your order will be cancelled and the item will be relisted for sale.


I will ship your order within one to two days after you place your order. Some orders will have additional shipping options that you can access during checkout. If no other options are listed and you need your item faster, please contact me and I will give you a quote. I can also add insurance if you request. Please let me know when you order either in your "note to seller" or by contacting me through etsy or email.

If you order wine charms, each charm will come in its own small zipper bag. This keeps the spirals from getting tangled. I recommend storing your button charms in these bags. Your charms will also come with instructions for use and care.

Refunds and Exchanges

If you are unhappy with your purchase please let me know within five days of receiving it and I will give you a refund. You are responsible for return shipping unless the item was damaged during shipping or received in error.

Additional Policies and FAQs

Custom Orders:
Do you have old buttons that you just love? I can make custom charms using your buttons.
My sets are usually sets of 6 or 4. If you need a larger set please ask and I will add to the set if I have matching buttons. I cannot split an existing set.

Unless you send me buttons, any custom order will be dependent on what is in my current button collection, but I will always try my best to meet any demand you may have.

Do you have a large collection of buttons just sitting around that you want to get rid of? I can trade charms for more awesome buttons! Or I may be interested in purchasing them.

Button Care:
Most old buttons should not be submerged in water as it will cause them to deteriorate more rapidly. Use lukewarm water and mild detergent to spot clean your charms.
