Where Worlds Collide and Imagination is Created
ToeFishy: The shop started after peer pressure finally won and I decided to have a place for my creative energy to go. It also helps that I am a full time/stay with my baby momma and needed to pay for the awesome BA in Theatre and Dance.
Sewing Chops: My mom taught me how to sew and I come from a long line of seamstresses (although they are probably not cool with my willy-nilly way of creating art). When I was 14, I started designing costumes for halloween and birthdays. When I was 19, I started working for Cheryl (where a lot of the Ren patterns come from) and honed my craft. She did SCA events and I got to be amazing at top stitching and sizing Doublets.
ToeFishy: Where Worlds Collide and Imagination is Created! The name has meaning. We've all been in a place where our worlds collide. For me, it reminds me of lazy summers swimming in the pond with my cousins, my two years at Chatham (being a dancer (toe) and swimmer (fishy)), and how I'm happiest being myself in all of the hats I'm called to wear.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
If you see something you must have, but don't have the funds for it currently, message me and we can discuss a payment plan.
International Shipping? Message me! Prices and shipping times vary greatly depending on where you are and how fast you need it. At this time, International Shipping cannot be tracked once it leaves the US, so the buyer assumes that risk.
Refunds and Exchanges
If I have been contacted, normally we can work something out. I normally don't give refunds unless there are extreme issues/problems. But in most cases I would be happy to exchange or fix an item if it arrives with major issues, hasn't been worn or used in any way and is shipped back (at the buyers expense and with delivery conformation) within 10 days of purchase.
I really try to take good pictures and describe items to the best of my ability, so hopefully there won't be any issues.
Additional policies and FAQs
*I had a teacher once who said that theatre was live for a reason, and if someone wanted to see perfection, they should go to the movies. I feel that way about hand made items. If you want perfection, buy something from a machine. If you want something made with love, from a real person, buy handmade*
