Well, hello! Welcome to What’s Up, Cupcake’s Etsy shop! You may know me from my blog: http://www.whatsupcupcakeblog.com/

I work with various crafts and have been collecting vintage patterns for a short while. I plan on sharing both craft items and vintage sewing pieces here in my Etsy shop. Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about my items.

If you are new to working with vintage patterns, here are some links that can help you along/inspire you:

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I check all patterns for completeness and condition prior to listing. If the pattern arrived in a condition different than what you expected, please contact me within 3 days of receiving. I will gladly do refunds if I inaccurately describe an item. The item must be returned in the condition that it was received in.

Please feel free to ask me any questions or contact me if there is a problem that can be worked out. These are vintage items but I will describe them to the best of my interpretation of their condition.
I accept payment by Paypal. You do not need a Paypal account to check out using a credit or debit card. Payment is due within 48 hours of the order submission or the transaction will be cancelled. Please let me know if you will not be paying immediately so I know to hold the order.
Patterns will be shipped to you in a protective plastic sleeve in a manila or bubble envelope. I will ship within 2-3 business days of payment clearance. If you need expedited shipping, please convo me prior to purchase.

Within the US, items will be shipped via USPS first class mail or Priority mail with delivery confirmation. If you want insurance, please convo me.

International orders will ship via USPS First Class international. Please note that you are responsible for all VAT and import fees and taxes. Here is a helpful link for calculations:

If your Etsy and PayPal ‘ship to’ addresses do not match, your order may be delayed while the correct shipping address is identified.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items come from a smoke-free but animal friendly home.

For vintage items (such as patterns), please keep in mind that these items are vintage and will not be in new condition. I will make every effort to describe the items posted accurately but keep in mind that the item conditions are based on my interpretation. I do check each pattern envelope for completeness and will call out any information you may need, including any tears, marks or missing pieces. If you feel that an item did not meet my original description, please contact me. Review the item pictures and convo me with any questions.
