About

Simple Living through reusable products

Wee Essentials started at a dining room table in 2007; I was trying to come up with a frugal and earth friendly way to replace a lot of my disposable household necessities - feminine products, nursing pads, paper towels, and diapers/wipes. I'd been sewing and crafting since I was 7, so it was only natural to make my own!

Lots of trial and error later, and in June 2008 I opened Wee Essentials on Etsy with my first Ultrathin Liners and Soap Bits - a natural cloth wipe solution. I knew I wasn't the only one who was looking for products that would save them money in the long run while being thoughtful about the earth's cleanliness.

Over the years, the idea of "Living simply so others could simply live" has affected my actions more and more, and the way I run Wee Essentials. By using reusable products, we can save resources for other people - and when we are done, reusable products can be composted in part or whole, keeping landfills from growing, and water and air clean for the people who live near them.

    My interest in sustainability grew out of a need to be frugal and eco-friendly when I moved into an old farmhouse in Ohio in 2007. A few years and a few children later, Wee Essentials has grown beyond my imaginings!

Welcome! I am a stay-at-home mom to two boys and two girls. I love to create! And because I'm practical, I love to create beautiful and *useful* objects!

In the past few years, I've gotten more and more concerned not only about how our lifestyles impact the environment, but how they impact our wallets. You'll find that many of my items are simple, reusable, practical solutions to disposable or unfriendly products.

**We are a smoke-free but cat-friendly home. **

Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 21 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
These are handmade goods, so each piece may vary slightly or have small imperfections. I cannot accept returns of personal care products (soaps, feminine hygiene products) for hygienic/sanitary reasons. Returns will be accepted for defective product. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Payment
I prefer payment within three (3) days of purchase. I gladly accept Paypal (all types of payment,) credit cards, US Postal money orders and personal checks from US banks.

If you do send a personal check or money order, or you choose to pay with an e-check through Paypal, please be aware that these forms of payment may take up to 10 business days to clear, although in my experience it's generally less. I'll ship after payment clears.
Shipping
I don't include invoices in your shipment. I do that to reduce packaging waste. But if you'd like an invoice, just let me know - I'd be glad to oblige! :)

I ship 2-3 times a week, however, please check each item's listing details for the actual processing time as it varies depending on the product.

US Shipping: I ship USPS First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation when packages are light enough (under 16 ounces.) Everything else will go Priority Mail with delivery confirmation . If you need something right away, please email me about Express Shipping, which takes 1 to 2 business days, and if I can accommodate that, I will!

INTERNATIONAL shipping: Packages to the EU, Australia, other parts of Europe and North America (outside the US) will ship via First Class International mail unless we make other arrangements. This type of shipment can take up to several weeks to arrive depending on your location, though I generally see packages arrive in about two weeks.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: If you are an international customer, you will be responsible for any import/customs fees and taxes incurred in the shipment of your order into your country. I cannot legally mark packages as gifts or devalue the merchandise.
Additional policies and FAQs
Minnesota residents pay a 6.875% state sales tax on taxable items. (Pads and liners are not taxable, but the accessories are.) Minnesota county and municipal taxes are included in the purchase price of the item.


I will be happy to consider special requests! My ability to create what you want may be limited by the materials I can obtain. Please see my shop announcement at the top of the first page of my shop for the current turnaround time for custom orders.
