Welcome to The GYPSY MADONNA Collection! May I offer.....
AGE: Made Recently by MOI! Not Chinese made - not Japanese made - not Taiwanese made - 100% put together here in America of as many vintage (and new) materials I can find!
MATERIALS USED: C.1950 satin polyester, C.1900 French ombre rayon, C.1940 Cotton Ombre, C.1950 German Sugar Buds
ITEM: A handmade ribbon rose embellishment featuring a laender center floral with lime green ombre leaves. A pair of sugar buds completes the piece.
CONDITION: Brand New - Perfect! The piece is entirely hand sewn and can be attached to any item of a small nature - a doll's coat lapel, a doll's hat, a baby headband, hair comb, christening gown or ?????
SIZE: 1-1/2" x 1-1/4"
FINAL COMMENTS: There is no felt backing - just the stitches at the back. Stitch to another item or add a pin and attach to a piece of clothing - this way, it can be easily removed before the garment has to be washed (the sugar pips would dissolve in a wash). In rules of ribbonwork, only the front counts - not the back.
The last 2 photos show other designs as well as ways of decorating with the piece.
I ship as soon as I can, usually 1-2 days within the purchase date. Sometimes there are delays but not many - usually family and the weather are the main culprits.
Payment methods accepted: Paypal (of course), cheques/checks, money orders and yes, I can do layaway. Just ask about my terms.
Returns & exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
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:
Custom or personalized orders
Perishable products (like food or flowers)
Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
Not happy? Just doesn't work for you? Just send it back and I will offer a full refund on the purchase price only. Layaway pieces are handled a little differently - usually I apply a 15% restocking fee if the item has been "on hold" for a very long time. Most dealers do "no refunds" on either the deposits or layaway itself. I think this a little harsh as you never know what is going to crop up in the way of an emergency and sometimes a person does have to hold onto their money due to such a situation.
Right now, I don't really accept custom orders but if you e-mail me, and I have the time, I might just be able to accommodate your request!
