About

Towee: Literary Silver

Ever since a young age, books have been an integral part of my life. Each character I meet helps me see the world through new eyes, develop my sense of self, and explore new realms of possibility. I created Towee to share my literary experiences with others through art.

Every piece in Towee is inspired by a literary quote. Some are quotes about books, but most are quotes from books. The quotes from books are those that have stuck in my head for years and have in some cases caused no end of contemplation.

Now you may wonder why on earth I have named the shop “Towee.” No, the inspiration was not the bird, nor the boat. The story comes from my earliest days of speaking, when I was not yet two years old. I was in the baby seat in the back of the car, my dad was driving. According to him, I said, “Daddy, towee.” He tried several times to guess what I was trying to say, but never succeeded. He quit, and we both traveled in silence a while until I said, “Daddy, liburary, book, towee.” He finally understood that I wanted him to tell me a story while we traveled along. That moment has become family lore, and “story” has been “towee” ever since.

I have had a love for books ever since I can remember. Every story I read, every series I get lost in fuels my addiction to the written word. This shop is my way of sharing some of those wonderful literary moments.

Returns and exchanges
Since all pieces are shipped in a box inside a bubble mailer, not much can happen to them. However, if the item shows up mauled by a bear, Convo me within 10 days, and I will do my best to work with you.

If you are worried about an item arriving and would like to purchase delivery confirmation, please Convo me before ordering and I will add it to your listing.
Payment
I accept PayPal, since it's very easy to use on Etsy. Immediate payment ensures that your items get to you the quickest, but I also accept eChecks on PayPal. I ship as soon as the eCheck has cleared.

If the buyer cancels the eCheck before it clears, I will make contact via email, and then delete the transaction from Etsy.

Luckily, you don't need to have a PayPal account to use it! After choosing PayPal during check out, scroll down to find the section where you can pay via credit card without registering for an account.

Non-payment after 10 days will result in cancellation of the transaction.

Purchases in North Carolina are subject to a 7% sales tax.
Shipping
Since everything is handmade and some will be made when you order, it may take up to a week to be shipped, sometimes more depending on the number of orders I have. I send out convos with estimated shipping dates as soon as I can after your order is processed! If there are any delays (such as national holidays I forget about) I will keep you updated on your package.

I mail on weekdays after payments have cleared. All pieces are shipped USPS First Class which usually takes about 3 days in the US. International orders can take a few weeks, depending on customs, but my international buyers have reported very good shipping times, typically a week.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am also willing to wholesale items! Please Convo me for wholesale pricing and minimum orders. Thank you!
