Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! My name is AJ, and I'm a just-starting-out Etsy store owner. I've had my store for many years, tried a few things and it didn't pan out. Being a newcomer is hard, because no one knows if they can trust you.
Well, over the course of those years, I've learned some new things. I first learned to crochet. After my wrist got broken and crocheting seems to make it ache, I took up knitting. Now I do both (I'm a sucker for craft related pain, I guess).
Originally I wanted to be that cool store that made the cool gothic clothing, that all my friends would shop at. However, I realized that my knowledge and my skills were not in sync with each other. I have the know-how, I just lack skill. SO knitting and crocheting take center stage, because I am WAY better at that, than I am at sewing.
FOR LIST OF WHAT I MAKE, PLEASE SEE THE COMMISSION JOURNAL ENTRY!
PAYMENT AND SHIPPING COSTS
If your item is not ready made and is a custom order, I start working on your item the moment I receive your full payment.
I accept PayPal, mailed MONEY ORDER via certified mail, and dA (when specified on an item). If you feel more comfortable with me listing an custom item for you on Esty, I can do that also. Cost of listing the item will be tacked on to total cost for you.
The exchange rate for points is: $1= 80 points. (that's the actual exchage rate on the dA site. this isn't an exchange rate I made up myself)
If you pay in points (when its accepted), I will ship your item with the cash on demand type thing. Meaning you pay for shipping when the item arrives to you. I will require a signature, and will be tracking the item as it gets to you, to insure it has arrived. Since I won't be getting any cash for this, I can't cover shipping costs. I always try to ship items as cheaply and as safely as possible!
I DO NOT accept checks. If you send me a check, I will send it back to you, and you will not receive your item until payment is received via my other accepted forms of payment.
If you cancel a payment, or try and dispute a payment, via PayPal, to scam me out of money, after you have received your item, legal action will be taken against you. I document EVERYTHING. I hate to be so harsh but I have to protect myself. People do this sort of thing all the time. I am disabled. This is my only source of income. This is all I have. I cannot afford to be scammed out of items as well as money. If enough scams are ran on my paypal account, they can suspend my use of it and I won't be able to use it to recieve payments! The horror stories are really upsetting and tragic
