I try to ship orders out same day or next day. Weekend purchases are normally shipped on Monday, via USPS. Please contact me before placing your order if you have a time-sensitive delivery need and I'll adjust costs appropriately.
Domestic US: Unless otherwise stated in the item description, all orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail with delivery confirmation tracking numbers. If you need an expedited shipping method, please contact me prior to placing the order for cost adjustment.
International: Currently I am just shipping to the UK, Canada, and Australia. If your country is not available, consider an expeditor to ship from a US location. I will ship international first class if the weight is appropriate and always use a customs form. Contact me first for shipping charges prior to payment. I cannot guarantee any international delivery, however, given your own countries customs processes. Normally, things do work out, however.
Major credit/debit cards and Etsy giftcards thru Direct Checkout are accepted as well as PayPal. If you use an E-check through Paypal, it may take 4-6 days to clear. Orders will not be shipped until payment clears. There should not be any taxes as these are items that have not been purchased on a wholesale basis and are generally part of my extended family and neighbors treasures for years.
If you have any questions with the checkout process, Etsy has provided a step by step guide, located here: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php
Returns & exchanges
► Returns are accepted if you notify me within seven (7) days of your receipt of the item that you will be returning it.
Returns must be in the same condition as it was when it was sent to you. A refund will not be issued until I receive the returned item, and have verified its condition. You need to use the same mailing method with tracking as I have shipped to you.
Shipping costs are not refundable, and it is the Buyer's responsibility to pay the return shipping costs and return the merchandise in question in the same manner it was shipped to them by Seller.
► Damaged contents - Refund will be given upon approval (with photo of damage). I will reimburse you the cost of return shipping and issue a full refund for the order.
► Lost orders - US Domestic orders - There is a 20 day minimum before eligible refund to allow for USPS tracking and tracing. Sometimes they are quicker, but this allows them the time needed.
Be sure to browse my items for other purchases before you check out. Shipping is always at cost, so you will be assured that multiple purchases in the same shipment will bear that savings.
Patterns, paper and vintage items will typically have normal age-related wear and will not be perfect. No repairs are made unless noted on the item description. Please read the item description thoroughly and view the photos carefully as they are considered part of the item description. Ask any questions about the item before you purchase it. Some colors may appear differently on my computer versus yours, and I try to photograph as best as possible.
Because many of these items have been loved by previous owners, there may be pet or odors that come with the item. Paper especially. If I detect something, I will do my best to describe.
