Announcement   We have Handmade Primitives, Pillows, Stitcheries, Pictures, Country Decor, Painted wood Signs, Ornie Bowl Fillers, Holiday and Seasonal Decorative Accents and many more prim decorations.

Please read descriptions before purchasing. My pillows are unstuffed and my pictures are mostly unframed.

Everyone loves to decorate their home for each passing season. I think it makes a home more inviting when you walk in and see some seasonal decorations to welcome you in. The problem I had with doing this was where to store it all in the off-season? Who needs boxes and boxes of stuff that's only used once a year? That's when I decided to find a solution. I sell my items unfinished. My pillows are not stuffed and my pictures do not come with a frame. People think I'm crazy for doing it this way, but once they realize my logic behind it...they love it.

When I am decorating for a new season I start with my pictures. I just take the inserts from my existing pictures and just switch them out to the new seasonal ones. I lay the unused ones flat in the bottom of a drawer in a zip lock bag until next year. It is so quick to do it this way and you don't have to fool with the wrapping up and storage all of those picture frames. One frame will work as long as you buy the same size insert for each season.

Once the pictures are done, I start on my pillows. I just safety pin my seasonal ones shut. It makes it easier to do this way. I just un-pin them and transfer the stuffing over to the next season's pillow and pin it shut again. Now I have all of my unstuffed pillows ready for storage. I put them in a zip lock bag and lay them in the bottom of a drawer until it's time for them again next year.

Now that you understand my logic on shipping the pillows without stuffing and the pictures without a frame don't you agree this is the way to go? I find myself actually decorating more now than ever as it goes a lot faster to do it this way. I even enjoy it a little more as I used to dread pulling all of those storage boxes out and sifting through them to find what I needed. Not to mention you save money on shipping by buying the stuffing locally.

You can always find me by just typing in wvluckygirl into your site search bar. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your business.

About

Welcome

I Iove handmade primitives and antiques. I've been selling online as wvluckygirl for several years now. A lot of people ask me why I chose the screen name wvluckygirl. I got it from the old saying that "if you are lucky enough to live in the mountains, then you are lucky enough." I grew up in the hills of West Virginia (WV) so I consider myself to be a very lucky girl.

Please read descriptions before purchasing. My pillows are unstuffed and my pictures are unframed. People often ask me why I don't stuff or frame my items. The number one reason is that it saves you money. Shipping out a framed/stuffed item will greatly increase the cost of it. Another reason is that it cuts down on the storage space you need to store your seasonal items. For example....you can take the stuffing out of your Fall pillows and then just transfer it over to your Christmas ones. You can store your flat unstuffed pillows in the bottom of a drawer in a zip lock bag until it's time to use them next year. Same thing with the pictures, just reuse the same frame for each passing season. My customers say they find that they decorate more because it makes redecorating go so much faster than dragging through boxes and boxes trying to find the decorations you want to use next.. Framing and stuffing are so simple that anyone can do it. Even if you don't sew, you can always just "safety pin" your pillows shut. Even though I can sew I still pin my seasonal pillows shut. It just makes redecorating so much easier to do it this way.

I'm not only a crafter, but I'm a designer as well. I copyright my patterns so I will have something unique to offer my customers. New items are added each week so come back often. You can always find me on selling sites by just typing in wvluckygirl into your search bar. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your business.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Scroll down to see store policies and frequently asked questions.

I accept Paypal and Etsy gift cards. I also accept Etsy's direct checkout which allows you to pay with a credit card. West Virginia residents (only) are charged 6% sales tax because it is required by the state of West Virginia.
Refunds and Exchanges
I have a no return policy.
Additional policies and FAQs
1) Can we change this item or do you do custom orders?
+++ I cannot accommodate any changes to already listed items. If the listing doesn't specify it is custom made then it is "as is". If you are wanting something other than what is already listed or more quantities just ask. I'd be happy to see if I can help.

2) Do you combine shipping or what will be the cost of shipping for these items? Can I get expedited shipping?
+++I already have shipping discounts set up in the system for multiple purchases. You must be signed into your Etsy account because they use your zip code to determine the costs. Etsy will automatically calculate the correct ship charges when you add items into your cart. If it won't let you add them to your cart then that means I do not ship to your area. The price Etsy charges you is correct and no adjustments will be made by me after you pay. Etsy will only do the discounts if you pay for your items at the "same" time. Paying for each item individually will cost you more in shipping costs. When you check out you have a choice of shipping methods. Depending upon the weight of the item it's usually USPS first class or priority mail. If you want your item faster you need to choose priority.

3) What is your return policy?
+++ I do have a no return policy. Please respect my choice.

4)When will my item arrive?
+++. I ship using USPS (United States Post Office). I ship within 3-5 business days after receiving a "cleared" payment unless stated otherwise in the listing. Paying by e-check will delay the shipment as those take longer to clear. Business days do not include weekends nor holidays. Once it leaves my hands I'm sure you understand it's completely out of my control as to when it arrives. I will do my best to ship your item as quickly as possible, but I cannot guarantee delivery by any certain timeframe. You can expect shipping times to be slower during holidays such as Mother's Day and Christmas. That is due to the post office and not within my control. You will receive a USPS tracking number when the item ships. If you are curious as to how close your item is to be delivered just go to USPS.com and click onto track package. You can key in your tracking number and every time a postal carrier scans your item it automatically tells you where it was geographically when it scanned. If you ordered too late and your item has not arrived by the date you wished to gift it...I suggest just printing a picture of the listing you bought it from and putting that in a card stating it is on it's way.

5) Do you discount, layaway, donate, wholesale, or do consignment?
+++Sorry, but my prices are firm. I do not do consignment , donations, or layaway.

6) Can you ship my item to someone else for me since it's a gift?
+++In order to be protected as a seller from scammers I can only ship to the address that is on your payment. This is an Etsy rule and I cannot change it. You can get around this rule by changing your address before you order and then change it back to the correct address once you have paid. If you do this make sure it has the correct address you want it to ship to before paying. I go by the information on the computer and I am not allowed to edit it. Please do not buy and then send a message for me to change it for you. That's against the site rules also. If you are sending it as a gift please make sure the recipient knows a package is coming so they do not refuse it. I don't gift wrap but I would be more than happy to add a note with the package for you upon request.

7) Do you ship internationally?
+++I have my items set up to automatically show shipping costs to the countries I ship to. To see where I ship and the costs you must be signed into your etsy account. Add the items to your cart and it will show you the correct totals. If it won't let you that means I do not ship to your area. I do exclude some countries due to the fact that they will not give tracking information to the post office. Without being able to track the package I cannot prove it was delivered in the event of a dispute. With all international sales custom fees/duties/taxes are the sole responsibility of the buyer. If shipping outside of the US you can also expect delays and/or fees due to customs.

8) Do you have a physical store or phone?
+++No, I only sell online. All questions and inquiries can be made using the Etsy message/convo system.

9) I've changed my mind...can we cancel this transaction that I have already paid for?
+++No, by paying for your item you have agreed to the transaction. Etsy allows each seller to determine if they accept cancellations or not. Sending a message stating you wish to cancel your order does not automatically cancel it.

10)My item was damaged in transit?
+++If you item is damaged in transit I do require you to send me a picture verifying the damage before any refunds will be made. All claims on damaged items must be reported within 1 week of receiving the item.

11) Can I pick the item up from you?
+++All items will be shipped through the USPS postal system. No local pickups. In order to me to be able to prove your item was received, I have to have proof of delivery via a scanned delivery receipt by a postal carrier.

12) Will these different items match each other?
+++ If you want to make sure your items will match each other just contact me "before" purchasing. I do not do refunds because you "thought" your items would match. Pillows made from different bolts of fabric can have variances in the color. Painted wooden items can also vary if they are from different species of wood. Pillows painted with colors other than black or white may not match each other as I have to mix my dyes to get the colors I want.

13) Do you sell/accept gift certificates for your store?
+++Etsy sells gift cards for this site. Buying an Etsy gift card will allow your recipient to not only buy from my store but it lets them buy from any store that accepts Etsy gift cards. Yes, I do accept Etsy's gift cards as a form of payment.

14) Can you make this pillow with an envelope back or zipper so I can use a pillow form?
+++No. Pillow forms only come in a few select sizes. If I made them to fit the forms I would be seriously limiting myself to the sizes I could sell. Another reason is that when you use pillow forms the covers never fit quite right. You have to make the cover a little larger than the form so you can squeeze it inside of it. That creates wrinkles when someone leans up against it. It also causes the back to bulge open where the envelope closure is. If you don't get the cover just right it could even be too small and it rips the fabric over time. Making a pillow cover to fit a form is an exact science. I have learned that pillow forms are not universal either. A form from one company will fit differently than a form from another one on the same pillow. I prefer the fiberfill stuffing. It's cheaper and easier to use. I don't use zippers either as they are expensive and can break easily. The way I make my pillow covers allows you the flexibility to use it as a table mat since it will lay flat. Envelope backed covers won't let you do that as they are bulky and bulging in the backs and won't lay flat.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
It is your responsibility to ensure your address is correct before purchasing. If your item has come back to me as undeliverable/refused I will refund the purchase price minus the shipping costs and a 20% re-stocking fee. If you still want the item you will have to re-purchase it at full price.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I like to keep my store drama free. If I've had problems with you as a buyer in the past I reserve the right to cancel your order. I treat people with respect and I expect the same in return.
