"You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret: All the best people are." - Lewis Carroll

As someone who has a lot of odd people in her life, I can definitely appreciate these sentiments from Alice in Wonderland... and I suspect I am not alone. If you are a believer in the idea that the weirder a person is, the more interesting and extraordinary they are, this mug is perfect for you.

I chose a medium-small, dark-yellow mug for this one, and painted a scattering of multi-colored stars around the quote, going bonkers in their effort to express how wonderful it is to be bonkers.

Perfect for Alice fans, or for the generally quirky.

All of my work is done with heat-set ceramic paint, and will do very well with dishwashers and the ordinary passage of time. I would, however, recommend against the use of strong abrasives.


Domestic: I have always shipped via FedEx to US destinations, because they are usually quite careful in addition to being speedy. Their prices have increased, however, which accounts for my new domestic rate, but if you would prefer me to send your mug via US Postal Service (which retains my old rate of $8.00 per mug), please let me know at checkout, and I will refund you the extra four dollars.

International: The US Postal Service has just doubled its rates for international shipments, which has a very notable impact on things like mugs bound for overseas destinations. If you live outside the US and you're buying more than two mugs (or if your mugs amount to more than 4 lbs), please message me before you check out so we can discuss shipping prices. Thank you!

Frequently asked questions about OpheliasGypsyCaravan

All my pieces are scavenged from various stores, and I hand paint each one, so the short answer is 'no.' But if you'd like a reproduction of a past design on a different mug, I can absolutely do that. Please read my custom mug listings to see which one fits your needs: https://www.etsy.com/listing/109863641/simple-custom-mug-you-choose-the-quote?ref=shop_home_feat_2 ; https://www.etsy.com/listing/90199344/complex-custom-mug-you-choose-the-quote?ref=shop_home_active_5
That all depends on what I can find locally. Like sold mugs, I can't often (if ever) reproduce an exact duplicate of a sold item, but sometimes I can find similar pieces to paint the same way. These sorts of custom projects usually take a long time, mostly because the actual finding of the pieces is a long and involved process, but if you're willing to wait a bit, please get in touch and we'll chat about options!
Usually, when I post a large collection of mugs, I do it all at once, and alert my Facebook followers and mailing list of their availability. Since time tends to be of the essence in those situations, I don't measure each cup's liquid volume, because that takes a lot of time. But if you'd like to know the size of any given mug, feel free to message me! In general, mugs I classify as "Small" tend to be 6-10 ounces, "Medium," 10-12 ounces, "Large," 14-16 ounces, and "Extra Large," 18 ounces and up.
Absolutely! I have many custom options in my shop, from simple, black-text only mugs, to intricate, complex artwork and mug specifications, to bowls and decorative platters. They can all be found in the MISCELLANY section of my shop. (Please read the descriptions on the listings before you place your order.)
This question is one I still cannot satisfactorily answer, even after eight years of experience with these paints. The paint brand, Pebeo, claims that they are dishwasher safe, which is true in some respects. I have some mugs that I have been washing in the dishwasher for years, that are still mostly just fine. And yet, I think the dishwasher in question and the mug itself both impact how well the paint will stand up to that sort of washing. (In some cases, I think the detergent coats the paint over time, and even preserves it.)

On the other hand, I have seen mugs whose owners only hand-wash sustain significant damage from scrubbing. If you want to hand wash, take care to scrub ONLY the inside of the mug, and never the artwork itself.
Unfortunately, my mugs are not really wholesale material. They take me so long to paint that I really must ask the full price I charge for them, and can't discount for the sake of wholesale.
