Welcome to The Pixie Knoll Shop!
The pixies and I are delighted you have stopped by for a visit here in our shop. Why not pull up a comfy chair, grab a spot of tea and sit for a spell. We love to have visitors here as it is always nice to sit with a friend and share a story or two. Take your time and enjoy your visit.
Since you are here, I thought you should know that the pixies recently brought it to my attention that things were looking kind of drab around here and they felt it was high time we spruced things up a bit. Those bossy, pesky little pixies....who would have thought that those critters could make such a mess! So please, pardon our dust as we tidy things up around here. Hopefully, we'll make it a more pleasurable experience for you....and me.
E-commerce shopping coming soon!
***Payment plans are also available.***
I do offer payment plans to help those who would love to give a forever home to one of my sweet little pixies because I believe art should be available to everyone. I do not charge an interest fee for offering payment plans and your payments can be broken down in to 2 or 3 installments. On some occasions, I have even been known to break the payments down in to 4 installments when necessary.
With payment plans, you will receive an invoice through PayPal instead of purchasing via the website with the 1st payment occurring at the time the payment plan contract is agreed upon between the buyer and the artist. For payment plan inquiries, please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be happy to assist you. I have worked with many kind folks all around the world with payment plans and I would be happy to do it for you too!
With that said, should you change your mind at any point in time during the lay-away process, I will issue you a refund of what you have paid towards your purchase with no questions asked...
BUT THERE WILL BE a 15% non-refundable charge
of the total cost of the intended purchase
as a restocking fee
should you back out of your purchase agreement.
The reason for the restocking fee is simple. When ever you make a purchase from an artist, you are buying a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. When you make a commitment to make the purchase, it becomes a contract between a seller and a buyer. The artist agrees to make available to the buyer the artwork at the end of the payment process, whereas the buyer, intends to complete the payment plan transaction.
When the artwork is in the payment plan process, it is no longer available for other potential buyers. And because the item is a one-of-a-kind piece of art, means that there are not more just like it sitting on the shelf waiting to be purchased. So while the artwork is in lay-away, that means it is on hold and no one else can make that purchase for that artwork should they so desire, even if they intend to pay cash up front in full payment.
As a result, the artist could have lost a viable sale during the lay-away process.
Therefore, it is a good business practice to charge a restocking fee for the time lost for another potential sale opportunity. Let’s face it, they don’t call us “starving artist” for nothing, but that doesn’t mean we really have to starve at the end of the day. Compensation for time loss for potential sales makes good business sense,
so I thank you for your understanding.
