— We are a small green boutique doing our best to support an entire community
of students working their way through college, single moms, old grannies,
people recovering from various misfortunes in life, and just trying to figure
out how to pay the month's bills, or put food on the table, or keep a shelter
over their head and not become homeless. Your purchase helps support our
mission to create new jobs. (we are NOT a nonprofit and we DO pay hefty taxes
to our governments as a result). If you make an offer that is under our
wholesale and labor costs, we will decline, because, again, our mission is to
create jobs and not destroy them. If you need a bargain basement deal, we're
not the seller for you. If you want to support artists and struggling people,
and help upcycle, recycle, and keep great items out of the landfill, that's us!
But please don't ask us to go against our policies and mission. Also, if you
should find ANY issue with the item you purchase, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE
contact us directly to resolve. We can resolve ANY issue you have directly,
without your filing any kind of official form. In most cases, we can be
even more generous when you contact us directly than when you file those pesky
forms. PLEASE HELP US stay in business and creating new jobs by doing this. We
truly appreciate your consideration, and thank you for reading this
— If you don't know your measurements, we recommend using a tape measure. If
you don't have a tape measure, you can lay a garment that fits you well on a
flat surface and measure it with a standard ruler.
— The measurements provided in this listing are approximate within ~1".
Please contact us before making a purchase if you're between sizes or you have
concerns about the fit.
— If you are purchasing outerwear and plan on wearing thick layers underneath
(e.g., sweaters, thermals), please make an allowance of an additional 1/2"
to 1" in chest, shoulder, and waist measurements.
ABOUT SHIPPING & DISCOUNTS
— If you feel that the cost of shipping for a given item is high, please
contact us for an exact shipping quote before making a purchase.
— Please note that we are located in New York. If you live on the opposite side
of the country or overseas, shipping can be costly! We're not happy about that
either. Contact us and we can try to work something out!
— We can combine shipping, and (possibly) expedite/rush. As always, contact
— If you feel you need a discount, use our "make best offer button".
Please ask for only ONE discount - that is, we will allow for a discount on the
purchase price, or on shipping, but not on both. If the shipping seems too
high, it could be that the weight was recorded incorrectly and that can be
adjusted. But please discuss all discounts in advance of making your offer.
Once we accept your offer, all pricing for invoice purposes are final.
----- IF FOR ANY REASON OUR SHIPPING IS
UNDERSTATED, OR THE PRICE YOU PAID WITH YOUR DISCOUNT AND SHIPPING (INCLUDING
IF IT WAS FREE SHIPPING) DOES NOT COVER THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US IN TOTAL, WE
RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL YOUR ORDER AND REFUND. NEGATIVE FEEDBACKS LEFT FOR US AS A
RETALIATORY SPITEFUL MEASURE BECAUSE YOU ARE UNHAPPY ABOUT THIS SITUATION WILL
BE AGGRESSIVELY PURSUED AND REPORTED TO.
WE ARE NOT HERE TO SUBSIDIZE YOUR PURCHASES - AND CANNOT LOSE MONEY TO
operate with a strong social mission -
to respect Human Rights in Business, and
we operate with the mission to
create jobs. We've been doing this for
years. We manage by the numbers. We know exactly what it costs in labor and
the cost of materials to get a product to you.
If you do not want to pay full fair price for the labor and artisans'
products, then we are not the place to shop.
RESPECT THE LABOR INVOLVED.
RESPECT THE COST TO PRODUCE THE GOODS.
This is just good practice and helps us keep creating new jobs.
— Our elves do their best to describe the COLORS they see, given the age of
their eyes, and the technical digitization tools at their disposal. HOWEVER,
even color is subjective. We had someone disagree with our description of
'brick red', despite the fact that bricks DO come in different shades. SO, for
that reason, and because eyes, computers, smart phones, and personal opinions
affect shades and hues - we will NOT accept returns under ANY circumstances
because you disagree with how we describe the shade of the color. You might
think it's more purple than blue, but color is subjective, and we all use
different scales to judge color (Pantone, etc.) SO NO RETURNS BASED ON
