I feel bad saying it but I kind of hope you make this girl’s etsy life hell. She has no business being in business.

Could you get a small patch of the same fabric with some glue on it and try out all of these great suggestions to see which one works best before you take them straight to your veil?

Oh  no 🙁 I’m sorry you’re dealing with this. 90 percent of the sellers I’ve dealt with on etsy have been flakes. I swear, I have the worst etsy luck. I just ordered a dress from the jerseymaid as she came highly recommended, when I got the dress there were loose stitches. Luckily, she was really accomodating and let me return the dress. I hope you can get the glue out!

@Evie19: I bought a veil off etsy from terihuang (you can find her under that name in shops). Anyways, it’s 120″ cathedral length with a blusher. Like the Chelsea Clinton veil. It was only $50!!! And it arrived in about two weeks to Canada. She always responded right away. The veil is GREAT quality, I wanted the blusher a little longer and she said no problem with no extra charge.

Try her out?

i’m kind of surprised the seller hasn’t made her way over here tbh. considering all the bad press she’s getting from this, it would make sense for her to swallow her pride and right her mistake by just sending a new veil.

@Evie19: Some people are just all about money!! So is there a chance you can take it to the dry cleaners have them remove the crystals and the clue and then have the crystals sewn back on by a seamstress? sounds like a bit of work but at least you would end up with the veil you originally wanted. I’ve never had an issue with etsy but my flower lady who is putting together my (budget friendly) silk flower bouquets convieniently “lost” the flowers we bought inicially and then acted as if it was some poor new guys fault. She then tried to charge another $100 to make them even tho we had originally paid. GRRR!! ok in all seriousness tho, Its people like that who make me really wish Kharma was instant and preferably while you have a video camera in hand…

@Evie19: I am so sorry you are having to go through this. I don’t have any idea how you can fix this, but I just wanted to let you know that you can make yourself an account on Yelp and leave her feedback. That is what I did because most of my vendors weren’t on there either.

I hope that you are able to get this resolved somehow. It is very wrong that she sent your veil to you in such a bad condition. It is not something that would have been able to go unnoticed.

Just wanted to jump in to say DO NOT USE GOO GONE ON SILK!!

The acetone is the best bet.  You can buy acetone from beauty supply stores like Sally’s.  I’d pour it in a bowl and soak the gluey veil in the bowl to dissolve the glue.  Rubbing the veil between your fingers gently while doing that will help too.

Your second best bet is to use an iron and a couple damp washcloths.  Sandwich the veil between the washcloths to melt the glue.  It should stick to the washcloths and come clean off the veil.  (Don’t use too high heat, it will brown the silk.)

I am so sorry! What an awful woman!

I would not soak the entire veil in acetone. That may dissolve the glue that she used on the crystals. Just soak the messed up part.
