~ welcome to StarLitStudio ~

StarLitStudio was formed in 2001 and began as an online store in 2003.

I have been crafty (with paper and glue, this is not a Beastie Boys reference ha) my entire life. I am a vendor and maintain a booth, selling my handmade creations every Saturday since January of 2013, at the Stangl Market in historic downtown Flemington, New Jersey.

The online store began back in 2003, and I started shipping internationally in 2003 as well.

Living out in the country here in Hunterdon County is wonderful, but the price one pays for serenity, quiet and beauty is not having retail stores nearby. Princeton is closest, followed by Manhattan. I thank heavens for UPS and USPS and Fedex.

My objective with the store is to keep myself busy (and out of trouble) and allow my OCD to run rampant with organizing all the trinkets and goodies, and the perfection of the challenge to get parcels neatly packaged and shipped expediently.

I package and ship your order personally. If I could have my dream job it would be as a vendor at a kiosk at the holidays, wrapping packages for shoppers while wearing elf booties with bells on the toes. ;) The contents of your package are wrapped carefully to ensure safe transit to you, and shipped same or next business day.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you collect Sales Tax? Yes if your order is shipped to the state of New Jersey. StarLitStudio collects and pays state sales tax quarterly for merchandise and shipping total for parcels shipped within the state of New Jersey.

An item I want reads ‘out of stock’. When will you get more? Your shopping cart maintains “live inventory” and one can not backorder merchandise. Please feel free to email me anytime (starlitstudio@gmail.com) in regards to the due date of an out of stock item.

Do you really ship 'same or next business day'? Yes indeed.

I just saw additional items I want but just placed an order a few minutes (or hours) ago. Any chance I can add to my order and not pay additional shipping? Absolutely yes if your order has not already shipped. Please create a second order of what you need and check out again. This pulls items from inventory quickly, as store inventory is live. Then, send an email to me (starlitstudio@gmail.com) and alert me that you placed a second order and combine the two. I'll manually combine both orders and immediately refund the shipping difference to whatever payment method you used. It is no trouble to do this for you.

Do you have a blog where you share what you have created? Yes - it is starlitstudio.typepad.com

Why are you/how did you get to be artistically inclined? My mother was an elementary school art teacher, and I grew up learning about art whether I wanted to or not :)

There is a craft product that I really want and it's not in your store. Can you get it for me? Yes - just send me an email (starlitstudio@gmail.com) and I'll forward pricing and shipping times/availability.

Do you ship internationally? Yes absolutely - I've been shipping internationally since 2003. Please click the SHIPPING tab located on the left of your screen.

Do I need a PayPal account to place an order No. StarLitStudio uses PayPal as a credit card merchant to handle credit card transactions. You do not need to have a PayPal account nor do you have to log in to PayPal to pay with a credit card.

I received my package and the box is damaged and so are the contents - what do I do? Take photos of the box and the damaged contents, and email me right away with the photos at starlitstudio@gmail.com. All packages are insured. I will want to know if you are not satisfied - so please, let me know.

I received a tracking number and it's been a week, and my package is still not here - the tracking is showing my package is stuck at (insert your city here) - what do I do? Email me right away - I can begin an inquiry on your package through the United States Postal Service, and nine times out of ten this triggers your parcel's movement...so please, if you haven't received your package in a few days (I ship very quickly and generally USPS Priority Mail is fairly fast) please send me an email. My mail carrier, George, is the best and traditionally you'll get your package very, very quickly.

I have a question regarding your shipping costs which are excessive compared to similar websites. I would like to place an order for about 20 dollars but to ship cost about 1/3 of the price though my items could fit in a very small package. Are you charging actual shipping costs and do you offer shipping through USPS which have excellent prices on first class and priority flat rate services? Shipping charges are based on amount purchased. All store items are at least 20% off retail. I can charge exact shipping but I would need to charge full retail. This is due to the fees that are paid with each transaction (there are five fees - yes, five). I'd love to find a store that gives the customer 20% off retail and has free shipping. I'd close my store and create all day. I can recommend Ellen Hutson, Simon Says Stamp, and many other retailers that charge reasonable shipping. However, all packages leaving my store are fully insured, and any issues are answered and resolved with speed. Also all packages ship Priority Mail and typical turnaround from order placed to order received is one to three business days. Orders ship immediately.
