Q: I saw something I liked in the gallery, but I want a different color. Can you do that?
A: Most likely, yes. We can select other fabrics, thread colors, accents and features to change the look for you.
It may not be exactly the same depending on the availability of novelty print fabric or other supplies, but we can work with you to create something with a similar appearance.
Q: Why do some items seem a little expensive?
A: Most of our items are handmade and/or hand painted. There is no big factory assembly line with machines that finish 100 items in seconds with the mere push of a button. Very few things are outsourced. so nearly every item is designed, cut out, sewn, painted and assembled almost completely by one insanely devoted person. This process takes time. Quite often, so much time is put into items that there is little to no profit.
Q: If I contact you or make a purchase, will I receive annoying emails or sales calls?
A: Nope. No way. Absolutely not.
Although we have recently added an email list, we do not spam you with emails or sales calls.
We may occasionally have special sales or event notifications, but you will only receive notification if you choose to check the box and sign up for notifications on the contact form on out CONTACT page.
Other than that, we only contact you to confirm selections on custom order, if there is an issue with the order or you requested a reply from us.
Q: Do you accept returns?
A: Yes, we can accept returns and issue refunds on most of our products.
Exceptions: We do not accept returns on custom made items. We involve you in every aspect of the design process. Every detail is discussed, reviewed and approved by the customer before it ever gets assembled or shipped.
Q: How do I care for or clean my new item once I receive it?
A: Most items come with a care instruction sheet.
Q: Is there any kind of warranty with my product?
A: No. There is no specific warranty or guarantee provided with your product.
Rest assured though, that we do our best to provide a great product by using quality supplies, extra stitching and even preventative and protective treatments and procedures to ensure you are able to enjoy your purchase for a long time. We will repair or replace items if they are found to be defective upon receipt, but we do not state that they are guaranteed to last a specific amount of time before use and wear begin to show.
Q: Are you on facebook and other social media sites?
A: Yes, we are on facebook, twitter, pinterest and adding instagram as well. Just look for the icons or links on our home page so you can follow us.
Q: How can I view your products live and in person?
A: Currently, we are a very small home based business, so there is not a physical store you can go to, although I do have an occasional visitor. Other than that, we do set up a booth at a few conventions and events here in Florida.
Q: How much are painted shoes?
A: The Price of painted shoes varies depending on several things:
Keep in mind that more detail takes time, increasing the price. These are HAND PAINTED. Each shoe is literally an artists canvas. We do offer simplified art like silhouettes and basic line drawings to keep expenses down but still make a statement.
So, shoes + total cost of graphics + shipping & taxes (if applicable)= total
