Handcrafted upcycled and eco friendly goodies!

Hi I'm Heather and I am the mother of two students.
I like working with things that people would normally throw out and turning them into something good again. I started this when I was fundraising for my children to go to an international Scout camp, and I caught the bug!
I like to to upcycle game pieces into quirky eco-friendly gifts, so ideal for the time pressed parent looking for unusual presents!
I love to work with you to create a unique keepsake or fun gift

    I like working with things that people would normally throw out and turning them into something good again. I work with a variety of game pieces to turn them into a selection of fun and quirky gifts

Returns and exchange details
You have a right to cancel an order - this does not apply to custom-made items.

If you do wish to return other items (it hasn't happened yet!) I'm happy to refund the purchase price and postage cost, provided they are returned in perfect (resellable) condition. Unfortunately earrings cannot be refunded unless they are faulty, due to hygiene issues.

If you wish to return something, you must get in touch with me within 14 days of receiving it (this is your right of withdrawal from a distance selling contract under EU laws).

This right does not apply to personalised/customised items, but please contact me anyway if you have any issues at all, and we'll work it out together.

I will process your refund (of the purchase price plus original postage cost) within 14 days provided the goods are returned within that period.

In returning items, you will need to pay for the return postage yourself. I strongly advise that you obtain a certificate of posting (at a minimum) from your Post Office or courier, as if the item is lost in transit *you* will need to be able to claim for compensation.

If you are returning items to me from outside the United Kingdom, you must mark the package prominently as "Returned Goods". If you don't do this, I will unfortunately have to deduct any customs fees/tax/brokerage charges from the amount I can refund you.

All refunds will be returned in the same method as payment was given.

If an insured item is damaged in shipping, please contact me to make arrangements for refund or exchange.

***PLEASE NOTE: Non-UK buyers please note that all transactions made through this Etsy store including purchase of all listings and custom orders shall be governed by and construed in accordance with UK law. The courts of the UK will have exclusive jurisdiction to adjudicate any dispute arising under or in connection with any transactions***
I accept payment via Paypal, Direct Checkout and Etsy gift cards

You do not have to have a PayPal Account to pay by Paypal. When you checkout, choose Paypal, select the option "I do not have a PayPal account", then click "continue" and follow the instructions.
I ship 1st class within the UK and my shipping price includes postage and packaging. Packages over £20 and all personalised items, are sent 1st class signed for, as this gives both of us protection, and helps prevent things going missing!

Gift Wrapping - only if particularly requested and there will be an associated cost. If you mark an item as a gift, it will be sent with no price inside the parcel, gift wrapping is extra.

With overseas orders, I will post using Royal Mail's International Tracked service for Christmas. If you prefer a tracked or signed for service, please let me know, and I will adjust the shipping fee.

I will send your items within 3 working days of payment (apart from custom-made items, when they will be sent as soon as possible, usually within 3-7 days) and I will inform you when it leaves, so you have a rough idea of when to expect it. I use clean recycled packaging where possible to reduce the impact on the environment.

Approximate delivery times from dispatch within the UK: 3-5 working days, Europe: 7-10 working days, Canada: can be up to 6 weeks, USA and the rest of the world: can be up to 4 weeks. At times parcels may take longer through circumstances outside of my control. Delays in the post are not grounds for breach of contract unless the 'need by' date is agreed by both parties

Customs: Items sent internationally may incur a customs fee. Any fees that are incurred are out of my control and the customer will be required to pay these fees.

Your packet will be shipped to the address shown on your Etsy order unless you tell me otherwise. Please check your Paypal and/or Etsy profile to ensure it is correct, as I cannot be held responsible for mail that is misdirected due to incorrect or incomplete addresses.
Additional policies and FAQs
Positive feedback is very important to me. If you are considering leaving less than positive feedback, please contact me with your concerns about your purchased item and / or transaction, so I can resolve the issue for you as quickly as possible.
Thank you!

Privacy Policy
I will only use your shipping and billing address, and contact information
* To communicate with you about your order
* To fulfill your order
* For legal reasons (like paying taxes)

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.
1. Personal information I collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of signs or key rings, for example), if you contact me directly.
2. The Legal Base for Information Collection
The General Data Protection Regulations (May 2018) (EU) (known as GDPR 2018 throughout the rest of this Policy) requires that I explain the legal bases I rely on to collect, use, and share your personal information. This may include a buyer’s affirmative consent to receive marketing messages, compliance with legal obligations, and a seller’s use of the personal information in their legitimate interests (improving their services, for example). Throughout this privacy policy, I will explain where and why I rely on these different legal bases
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by UK tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.
• I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.
3. The third parties with whom I may share personal information
The GDPR (2018) requires that I disclose the details of any personal information I share with third parties.
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies- for example the Royal Mail or UPS. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
4. The length of time I keep personal information
The GDPR (2018) requires me to disclose the period of time during which I will store personal information.
Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period - 6 years as this is required of me by the UK’s Her Majesty’s Customs and Revenue Service (HMRC)
5. If transferring personal information outside of Europe, how the transfer will be handled
GDPR (2018) requires me to disclose if you transfer personal information outside of the EU and the legal bases you rely on to do so, such as consent and contractual necessity.
The only circumstance in which I would transfer personal information out of the European Union would be for delivery purposes through trustworthy services such as the Royal Mail or UPS or similar postal services.
Any other information will only be held by Etsy itself and for that purpose you should refer to their Privacy Policy
6. Buyers’ rights regarding my use of your personal information and my contact details

Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Apart from exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Heather Barber, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at heather [!at]
*If a customer contacts me to access, correct or delete personal information held by Etsy, I will request that the customer send a request directly to Etsy.
