Announcement    Sixty Beans is an eclectic boutique, dedicated to making Shabby Chic Decor from new, used, and vintage items. I specialize in transforming items both old and new that are wood, metal or glass into a unique Shabby Chic item for you! All handmade pieces I list are individually produced by me, and are one of a kind.

All items in my shop have been lovingly cleaned, restored, given a facelift, crafted, etc... to offer new to you, "freshly brewed" satisfaction. Many of my shabby chic and rustic items would work well for weddings, showers, or other events. I am currently offering items as a one time sale, not a continuing "made to order" item. If you see something you would like a larger quantity of, or a past sale item that is not currently in stock, please feel free to contact me about a custom order.

See my profile to understand the reason behind the shop name :-) Please check my shop policies on shipping, refunds, orders, etc. here. https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/sixtybeansVntg/policies

It's never too late to be what you might have been

I have been a crafter/artist wannabe all of my life. As a little girl, I loved to draw, paint, create... but those instincts were not encouraged, and in fact discouraged as frivolous. Early in my marriage, I dreamed of someday owning my own business. When my girls were little, I started making dough art ornaments to sell at local craft shows during the Christmas season. It provided a little extra cash, and gave me a creative outlet. Once my youngest daughter was in school, I needed to make more income, so pursued another love of mine... coffee. I began working in a local coffeehouse, and fell in love with the idea of opening my own. I even had a name picked out "Sixty Beans", based on the story about how Beethoven would count out 60 coffee beans each morning to make a perfectly strong cup. Alas, that dream never developed and I settled into working various jobs to keep enough monthly income going.

A few years ago, I was encouraged by my oldest daughter to start an Etsy shop as a fun way to make a little extra money. I love vintage things, and enjoy the process of finding them. I also would be able to try my hand at crafting again.... the idea was exciting. I decided that I would combine my original business idea name with my new endeavor... using Sixty Beans as my Etsy shop name with the tagline "freshly brewed vintage and more"... grab a cup of coffee and take a virtual tour! I struggled through the first 6 months, and then things really started taking off. I got more into creating shabby chic decor items, and saw an increased interest in my shop! I longed to be able to quit my day job, stay home and just work at my business. Then a huge curve came when I developed some back problems. One thing led to another and I ended up having surgery... then being laid off from my job. I threw myself head first into fine tuning this shop, adding to my artistic abilities... and starting up a new shop with my daughter. I am now working at Etsy full time and loving it!

Welcome to sixty beans, I hope you are enjoying my shop! I'm working to build a business here that truly fulfills my soul's desire to be an entrepreneur, and also my passion for treasure hunting and crafting. Nothing thrills me more than to sift through a sale - or even someone's free box - and find disregarded items that are valuable. And of course, value beyond monetary. These things are part of our past, tap into our memories, and speak of times and days which have helped shape all of our lives. I also love the creative process of making something new out of a collection of materials. I strive to represent my items honestly, and price fairly. If there is ever question or dissatisfaction, please let me know immediately.

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:

  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
I describe items clearly and am honest about their condition. I take photos in natural light and adjust color in an editing program as needed so that it will be as accurate as possible. Keep in mind that computer monitors and other devices vary in how they adjust color. If you have any question about our description, it's condition, or the color... be sure to ask prior to purchase. Refunds are not generally given for reasons such as you decide you don't like it or just changed your mind. There may be situations where if the item is unsatisfactory to you we will accept a return, but those are decided on a case by case basis. In those cases, we will refund the purchase price of the item but not original or return shipping, once we have received it back in good condition.

FOR CUSTOM ORDERS and MADE TO ORDER items there is no return policy. These items have taken time and supplies specifically to produce that item for you. Also, there are no cancellations/refunds on made to order items after ordering if the process has begun to produce your item. At that point you can choose to still receive the order, or cancel and only be refunded the shipping cost. The price of the item will not be refunded because we have spent the money on supplies, and our time producing it is already invested.

If you are unhappy with the way that your custom item turned out, I hope that you will understand that while I will work with you as best I can to rectify the situation and make sure you end up being satisfied, by purchasing a custom/made to order item, you are instilling a certain degree of trust in my artistic ability.

In the case of damaged or broken merchandise, I will require photographic proof of the damage AS WELL AS ANY VISIBLE DAMAGE TO THE BOX OR PACKAGING. I need this in order to file a claim with our shipping carrier and re-coup losses if possible. If the damage is too small to show up in a photo, chances are I will not offer a refund for your purchase.

Items that are severely damaged will either be refunded in full or a partial refund may be in order in some cases. These refunds are decided on a case by case basis.
Payment
Payment can be made through PayPal, and Direct Checkout. I do not accept personal checks. You should be able to see these options at checkout. If there are any questions prior to purchase, please convo me. I check my Etsy shop often throughout the day and will respond quickly.
Delivery
All items are shipped via USPS or Fedex Ground. Please keep in mind that bubble wrap, paper and tape are all very expensive and for larger items may be included into the cost of shipping. Shipping charges are based on the average it will cost for the weight of the item plus packing material. If free shipping is offered on an item, please keep in mind that the average costs to ship that item anywhere in the USA have been calculated into the price.

Ready made orders are shipped within 2-3 days. MADE TO ORDER items normally are processed within 1-2 weeks and shipped once completed. If you have a time sensitive order or need something rushed, please contact us AHEAD of making your purchase to find out if added postage charges will apply.

For packages that are RETURNED TO US as UNDELIVERABLE or UNCLAIMED, the buyer is responsible for paying postage again to re-send. The cost paid for postage is used once it comes back to us. We will refund the purchase price of the item upon your request but not original shipping. This also is only an option if the item is still in good condition. Sometimes when a package has traveled twice in the same box, damage may occur. I am not responsible for this damage.

If you feel that security may be an issue when packages are delivered (such as being left on your doorstep if you are not home, let us know prior to purchase and we will include charges for "signature required". That way it cannot be left unattended and possibly stolen. Without this service being added, we am not responsible for the safety of your package at delivery.

Shipping rates shown are for within the continental United States only. Rates to Hawaii will require additional postage. Please contact us prior to purchase so we can adjust the cost. I do not ship internationally.
