Thank you for visiting Upcycle Stitches Website.
This is a "digital" gift card. After the purchase, you will receive an email with the gift card and instructions on how to use it. The card can be used as payment for any products we have on this store. Although we set an expiration for 5 years from the day of purchase, we are willing to be flexible on that.
Due to the shipping delay between countries, we have limited amount of inventory. There is a possibility of temporary closing the business if the stock become extremely short. It will come back eventually. However, a purchase of the gift card is a great support to sustain the business operation toward 2021.
For the purchase of this Gift Card in 2020, I will include a small gift for you in the first order when you redeem the gift card.
*The above gift will be random following the theme. I will favor your request in colors, but please understand that I will pick a thread based on the availability. After the normalization of US - Japan shipping, I am happy to accomodate your request more flexibily.
*The gift will be included in the 1st order of the gift card is redeemed (For the commemorative, I may contact you for the preference), unless there is no specific request from you.
*The Gift Card can be used on ANYTHING on our website, as long as the item is available.
*This is a Gift Card, so it has "value" like Cash. It is not a donation. Please make sure that you keep the Gift Card in a safe place. Any violation of general rule of Gift Card (such as Duplication) will be handled with deactivating the Gift Card. I will be honest & caring, so please be honest & caring as well.
(I sincerely appreciate for several inquiries for donations to specific purposes, such as protecting Japanese Sashiko suppliers and artisans - including myself. I couldn't believe what I was reading when I received them. I do not know how "donation" will be categorized in the for-profit business like us, in the USA. I am learning & preparing the web page. If you are willing to make a donation instead of the Gift Card, please contact me so I can expedite my journey on this.)
This is my first challenge to offer the Gift Card. Atsushi is here to assist in using the Gift Card. We will be sincere for your request.
