  • Details
    This custom hand-lettered trinket dish makes the perfect gift for a bridesmaid proposal! It’s a one-of-a-kind design, originally listed in December of 2017. Each dish is made to order and lovingly hand-lettered in liquid gold leaf. Please let me know if you would like the dish to say “bridesmaid” or “maid of honor.”


    ▫️ DETAILS ▫️

    - These dishes are made from polymer or air-dry clay. They are NOT ceramic, and do not feel like ceramic: polymer and air dry clays are naturally very light, can be slightly flexible, and are very durable (e.g. will not shatter if dropped). However, these are also delicate handmade items and should be treated with care!
    - I seal each dish with a semi-gloss varnish: please contact me if you prefer matte.
    - If this dish comes in two sizes as indicated by a drop-down menu, the larger dishes are all about 3.75 inches across, and the smaller ones are 2.75.
    - The product you will receive will not be exactly like the ones pictured: each dish is individual, even if I use the same colors of clay! This is part of what makes them charming and uniquely special. Slight imperfections that fall within the nature of a handmade item may occur.


    ▫️PACKAGING AND SHIPPING▫️

    All dishes are safely wrapped in tissue paper, which is then wrapped in bubble wrap and MORE tissue paper to ensure maximum protection while your item travels to you!

    All orders will be shipped via USPS Priority Flat-Rate Mail, packed in a sturdy cardboard box to ensure the items are not damaged during delivery.

    Buyers will be provided with a tracking number and will be able to track the status of their order at any time after it is shipped.


    ▫️ PROCESSING TIMES ▫️

    Processing times may vary throughout the year, and are usually 2-3 weeks, since each item is individually handmade-to-order by me alone: it’s a one-woman show over here! I do not keep any items “in stock.” I make when you order!

    If you need an item by a specific date, PLEASE let me know before placing an order so that I can guarantee it will arrive on time. If you don’t let me know, I am unable to GUARANTEE that something will ship within the usual timeframe. Please see “shipping and policies” tab for additional details.


    ▫️CUSTOM ORDERS▫️

    Most of my dish styles can be customized with special words, a short phrase, a date, a name, initials, or even coordinates- the possibilities are endless! If you see a drop-down menu, please choose either “customized” or “non-customized.” If you choose customized, please write me a note in the “note to seller” part of checkout, letting me know the exact specifics of what you want on the dish. If I do not hear from you after purchasing a customized dish, you will be sent a plain, non-customized dish.

    If you would prefer different font options than the ones pictured in my shop, please send me a message and I’ll show you what I have available. If you would prefer the same style in another color or pattern, please message me and we can discuss your ideas!


    ▫️GIFT WRAPPING▫️

    There’s nothing better than the anticipation of unwrapping a beautifully packaged handmade item, which is why every order is wrapped in a way that is “ready to gift,” complete with the ribbon and bow! No judgement whatsoever if the person you’re gifting is... yourself. #treatyoself

    If you would like a personalized message or gift tag, please let me know upon order!


    ▫️CARE▫️

    These dishes can be cleaned with a damp cloth, and should not be used for holding food items, as an ashtray, or submerged in water.


    ▫️ BULK AND WHOLESALE ◽️

    I do sell in bulk, but PLEASE contact me before making a larger order (5 dishes or more) so I can create a customized listing for you.
    I am an approved seller through Etsy Wholesale. Please send me a message to view my line sheet and policies!


    ▫️DESIGN▫️

    All of my dishes are original Tidy Clutterings designs. I claim intellectual property over this design, these words, and ownership rights to all of the photos pictured.
  • Shipping & Policies

    Payments

    Accepts PayPal, direct checkout, and Etsy gift cards.

    I will honor requests to cancel orders within 24 hours of their purchase, but not after that. Please do not request to cancel your order days or weeks after purchase (which means me giving you a full refund) because you did not read my shop policies clearly enough. Thank you!

    Shipping from United States

    My default shipping method is USPS priority mail, which is a flat rate of $7.10 anywhere in the country, or $13.50 for larger orders. Current processing time is approximately 3 weeks, and shipping usually takes anywhere from 2-5 business days.

    You MUST let me know an exact date when you expect to receive an item by if you are planning on giving it as a gift. I try my hardest to ship every item in a timely manner, but if I don't hear from you regarding a date, I will assume you don't need it for anything in particular.

    I use USPS priority flat rate boxes for shipping, and most of the time they take between 2-3 business days depending on the location. You can pay $26.65 for overnight or one day shipping to guarantee with 100% certainty that your order will arrive by then.

    I am a full time graduate student and a one-person operation, and my processing time is about 3 weeks. Since all of my items are 100% made by hand in small batches, I prefer not to rush the process. Things occasionally get backed up, especially around holidays. When I ship an item, you will always receive an email you to let you know, which includes the tracking number so that the package can be tracked on its way to you.

    Returns & Exchanges

    I gladly accept returns and cancellations

    Just contact me within: 3 days of delivery

    Ship items back to me within: 7 days of delivery

    Request a cancellation within: 24 hours of purchase

    I don't accept exchanges

    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
    • Items on sale

    Returns and exchange details

    If you're unhappy with your item once it is received, please let me know immediately so I can try to resolve any issue that was a mistake on my part. Due to the nature of these specially handmade items, I do not accept returns or offer refunds on customized items except in the extremely rare case of damage during shipping. Much unhappiness can be avoided by reading the description of each item VERY CAREFULLY before purchasing, so that you aren't expecting something different than the product that is offered!

    I cannot replace items if they break while in your possession and use.

    I am not liable for the amount of time the post office takes once I drop the item off, and will not give refunds on this basis. Please see the "shipping policies" section for further information.

    Additional

    Custom orders are encouraged, and I enjoy creating each uniquely personalized dish. Simply send me a message if you have an idea and we can work something out!

    NOTE: Requests that are outside the realm of "normal customizations" (initials, names, symbols, finish) may be subject to additional labor fees.

    Please contact me directly for information about wholesale!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I request a customized item? What if it's something you don't have displayed in your store?

    Personalization can be selected as an option in almost all of my listings by using the drop-down menu to choose "customized," along with the size of dish you want (2.75” or 3.75"). If you want your order customized, please write the exact customization you want in the "note to seller" portion of your order.

    If you have an idea in mind that you don't see displayed in my store, message me and I'll see what I can do. I love working with you to create new things!

    Do you offer wholesale?

    I am an approved Etsy Wholesale seller! Please send me a message or email at tidyclutterings@gmail.com for more details!

    What's the deal with polymer/air dry clay? Can I eat out of these dishes?

    The clay I use is NOT ceramic- it is much lighter weight, but durable, and can be slightly flexible. My items can be dropped without worrying that they will break! They are not food safe, and should not be submerged in water for long periods of time (although a splash of water won't hurt). Wipe down with a damp cloth to clean.

    Is this item gift wrapped?

    Each item comes gift wrapped, and I can include personalized gift tags upon request. Please let me know if an item is a gift, so I can leave out the invoice.

    When can I expect to receive my order?

    Processing times vary throughout the year, but I always try my best to get orders out as quickly as possible without rushing the handmade process. ALWAYS contact me directly if you need your item by a specific date, and I will try my best to get it to you by then (within reason). I am a one-woman operation, and do all of the designing, creating, finishing, packaging, and shipping myself.

    With that being said, processing times (the amount of time from when I get your order to when I mail it) are around 3 weeks right now. If you need an item before a specific date, please send me a message before placing an order. Please note that unless a date is specified, items may take longer to process than 3 weeks

    My ears aren’t pierced. Do you offer clip-on earrings?

    Right now I do not currently offer any clip-on earring styles, although I am working on some that may be released in the future!
