On-line ordering is new for us, so we are in what we will call the "Trial & Error" stage.
Many of our customers have requested a way to purchase our items other than at craft shows, and encouraged us to sell from our website. So, we decided to step into the world of Internet shopping. Please bear with us as we learn, and use the following information to help you (and us) when you order from our website.
As you know, all items made by Coastal Creations are unique, one of a kind items, and are handmade by Sharon. (Coastal Creations) This presents a challenge for on line sales, but I am confident, with your help and patience, that I can make this work.
1. The items listed on the "Photos" page and on the "Present & Past Shop" page are examples of the types of gifts you can order from us. (under construction)
2. At this time, if you would like to place an order, please use the "CONTACT US" tab on the left, complete the form indicating what you are interested in ordering, and click on "Send" at the bottom of the form. We will contact you within 24 hours of receiving your form.
3. Since each item is handcrafted and one of a kind, you can request colors and embellishments of your choice. I will do my best to fulfill all special embellishment requests.
3. Shipping - actual shipping costs will be charged. If you live in Northern Virginia, you may pick up your item to save the shipping charges.
4. If you are using Pay Pal, please wait until after I contact you with the total cost including the shipping before you submit your payment. You may also pay by mail using a personal check or money order. If you are using a personal check or an e-check through Pay Pal, your order will be shipped when your check clears. Payment with a Verified Pay Pal account will be shipped within 24 hours, or on Monday if the payment was submitted on a weekend.
We will add more information as we learn. Please feel free to offer any suggestions that will help to make the ordering/payment process easier.
