About Diane Cucci
Our Service PledgeI will do all within my power to see that our shared experience is all the buyer had hoped it to be.
About UsINTERNATIONAL BUYERS!!! I will send first class as the cost of priority is prohibitive and the thought of insuring the item will send one to remortgage the family homestead. You MUST check the "decline insurance" if you do not want it as I am unable to do so (of course it is available if desired) International priority is available as it is your choice as to delivery system. I am going to enclose a note in the billing email as to these 2 particulars, insurance and method of shipping. Hate this part!!!!!
I am so exasperated by the color thing, there must be thousands of blues alone and we all call them by different names! I tried to use a color chart but apparently I am not allowed to send anyone to the one on the internet. Please continue to be patient with me as I struggle with this problem (doll shows are so much easier!) My excitement is building, I can not wait to meet up with old friends again. The doll and textile world is filled with knowledgeable, fascinating, kind, caring, patient, and endearing people. But one of my favorite parts of selling is all the laughs and pleasure we have shared.
Salvaging 1800s fabrics from damaged items is an addiction that has kept me off the streets for about 20 years, at that time I found I had so many piles of salvaged treasures that I had to move them on to make room for more, an addiction must be fed. That is what has gotten me to this point in time. Fabrics, silk, cotton, challis, etc. are the bulk of what has taken over my home but I am not above finding other "bosom clutchers" to share, ergo, buttons, trims, laces, and all manner of sweet things!
Please feel that you can contact me if you need something special of would like to match a swatch, I am eager to help.
I will continue to do shows: such as Gaithersburg, and Rowbears (when it is in an area that is closer to home).
Bear with me as I try to re-establish my shop, I want it to be loaded with wonderful and appealing items.
