Description

This listing is for a single made-to-order miniature needle-felted Laysan albatross chick.

I create these chicks from naturally gray corriedale wool and add seed beads for eyes. These miniatures stand about two inches high, although just like real albatross chicks these felt chicks vary in appearance and size. You can be sure that your felted albatross chick will be unique!

Unlike real Laysan albatross chicks, your felted chick will never grow up and fledge. It will keep you company year-round!

This chick is not a toy: it was not designed to withstand rough handling by humans or pets. Please treat it gently.

I would like to thank the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Kauai Albatross Network for bringing these incredible birds to a worldwide audience with the Kauai Albatross Cam, found at http://allaboutbirds.org/albatross.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept immediate payment with credit cards, Etsy gift cards and through Paypal.

I charge 9.6% sales tax to Washington State residents. If your delivery address is in an area of Washington with lower sales tax I will issue you a refund for the difference through Paypal. (Unfortunately Washington State sales tax regulations are anything but friendly to a sole proprietor. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!)

Returns & exchanges

It is very important to me that you're happy with your purchase. If there's any problem please contact me within seven days of delivery and I'll do my best to straighten things out. If for some reason you haven't been able to contact me within that time frame but still have a concern I encourage you to contact me anyway as I may still be able to work things out.

If you wish to return an item I will refund your full payment minus shipping after I have received the returned item in its original condition.

If a return is necessary due to an error on my part I will refund all of the original purchase cost, including shipping. In the case of an exchange due to my error the customer will not be charged shipping for the exchange.

In the event that a package is lost during shipping (undelivered) the course depends on the item. The buyer will always have the option of a refund. If the lost piece is a reproduction and something I have in stock the customer may choose between a full refund and having a replacement shipped. In the case of an original piece of art going missing during shipment the customer will have the option of a full refund. I will happily discuss the possibility of creating a new painting/drawing of the same image, but I cannot guarantee that I'll be able to remake it. That will have to be addressed on a case-by-case basis.

If a package appears to have been miss-delivered by the USPS I ask that my customer make a good faith effort with their local Post Office/Postal Carrier to locate the package. Sometimes mail is accidentally delivered to a neighbor and it only takes one question to be found. I know that none of us want a package to go missing and I appreciate my customers' understanding in dealing with that sort of situation! I will pursue all options available on my end to locate the package as well.

Shipping policies

Your purchase will be shipped via the US Postal Service. Orders shipping within the US will have delivery confirmation. Whenever possible I ship the day I receive an order. In the case of a custom piece I'll discuss the timeline with you before the order is finalized. I always ship original artwork with extra safeguards (generally signature confirmation and insurance). Those costs have already been figured into the shipping prices.

Unfortunately, delivery confirmation is not available to all countries without paying for additional services. If you would like to discuss the particular shipping options available for your country or would like to purchase expedited shipping, please contact me.

All customs charges and fees will be the responsibility of the recipient. Unfortunately, in some countries those fees are substantial. I would encourage you to research your country's policies before purchasing, and if you'd like to discuss it with me please let me know.

My shipping prices are what we in the United States typically call "shipping and handling". They take into account postage, packaging materials, and the time it takes me to take packages to the post office.

Additional policies

Feel free to ask me about commissions! Because project specifications can vary so much in my field I'll answer questions about custom work on a case-by-case basis.

I realize that there is risk in purchasing something only seen online, but I do my very best to provide complete and accurate information about all of my merchandise. Be aware that colors can appear different on different monitors. If you need additional information about any item before you decide on a purchase please ask. I want you to feel confident about what you're ordering.
