As many little girls do, Kim always dreamed of falling in love and having a beautiful wedding. While attending college, she met the man of her dreams, Jeff, who proposed several years later in Seattle, Washington.
In the course of planning their September 2007 wedding, Kim attended several large wedding expos, met hundreds of vendors, and searched through numerous stores and internet websites to find the supplies she desired. It was during this time that she realized the need for a reliable company that could serve as a single resource for brides who wished to purchase beautiful, yet affordable wedding-related items. With this idea in mind, Kim established A Touch of Class Creations in May of 2007. Since then, the company's vision has been expanded to include products and gifts for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, proms, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, graduations, and other special occasions.
As a family-owned business, we operate under the same principles of our founding: honesty, integrity, and exceptional customer service. Many of our pieces are crafted by hand and we are also an Authorized Elegance By Carbonneau Retailer. We are pleased to offer our customers an elegant selection of affordable jewelry, gifts, and supplies for every special occasion!
In addition to managing A Touch of Class Creations, Kim is also an award-winning fine art photographer. Many of her landscapes, seascapes, wildlife, floral, and abstract prints are available for sale in her Photography Shop.
Still happily married and very much in love, Jeff and Kim reside in western Washington and now have a beautiful little girl, a sweet baby boy, a 150 lb. pooch, and two fluffy felines. :-)
~ Payment Information ~
We are pleased to offer the following payment methods: PayPal, Credit/Debit Cards (accepted through PayPal), Personal Checks, Cashier's Checks, Money Orders, and Cash.
Do you have a printable order form that I can fill in by hand and mail to you?
Due to an increase in online-only orders, we no longer offer a printable order form. You are welcome to use our secure online shopping cart to complete your purchase.
I would prefer not to pay with a credit card or online through PayPal. What other methods of payment do you accept?
In addition to PayPal, we are happy to accept personal checks, cashier's checks, and money orders. We do require all checks to clear prior to shipping or releasing any merchandise. This process can take up to 10 business days after we receive your check. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to pay with a check and we will take your order via e-mail. We will also send you an e-mail containing our business mailing address, to which you can send your payment. If you visit our booth at a bridal show or expo in the Seattle area, our preferred method of payment is cash.
The PayPal shopping cart button does not appear to be working. I either receive a message that I already have an account and that my password is incorrect, or that the payment did not go through.
PayPal has a toll-free number, 1-888-221-1161, that you can call to resolve problems.
~ Sales Tax ~
Sales tax will only be assessed on items that are received, picked up, delivered, or shipped to locations within the state of Washington.
~ Shipping Information ~
Where do you ship?
We currently ship to locations within the United States only.
Do you ship to P.O. Boxes?
Unfortunately, we cannot ship to P.O. Boxes. We can only ship to a physical street address, such as your home, apartment/condo, or work address.
Is there a way to have my merchandise shipped to a different address than my billing address?
Yes! During checkout, you can specify where you would like to have your merchandise sent. Your shipping and billing addresses do not need to be the same.
Washington State Pick-up Service:
In addition to our nationwide shipping services, we also offer a complimentary pick-up option for our local western Washington customers, in which you can arrange to pick up your merchandise directly from us without having to pay a shipping charge. In order to be eligible for this free pick-up service, your shipping zip code must begin with the numbers "98" (anything within the range of 98000 - 98999 is acceptable). You will need to pick up your merchandise in either Lake Stevens or Woodinville, and you may specify your city of choice during the checkout process. If you choose this option, we will contact you to arrange a date and time for you to pick up your item(s).
~ Merchandise Information ~
What if something I ordered is not in stock?
In the event that we do not have your item(s) in stock or you desire a greater quantity than we currently have, we will contact you via e-mail to let you know when we expect to have those item(s) available. If we are unable to attain the quantity you desire (for instance, if one of our manufacturers discontinues an item before we have a chance to remove it from our website), we will contact you via e-mail to arrange a refund.
Do all of your necklace sets include earrings in the price or do they cost extra?
Unless otherwise indicated, all of our necklaces include matching earrings at no additional charge. Please refer to the product description to verify that a particular necklace does indeed include earrings in the listed price.
When a description states that a necklace measures 16" long with a 2" extension, does that mean that the necklace is 18" long or do I need to purchase an extension to make it 18" long?
If the description states that a necklace is 16" long with a 2" extension, that means its total length is 18" long. You can adjust it anywhere from 16" to 18" long, to reach your desired length, without having to purchase a separate necklace extension.
