Description

Mirror, mirror, on the wall; who is the crabbiest of them all? You, of course, as possessor of this awesome crab-encrusted mirror. Handcrafted by Crabby Chris, this is the only one of its kind in the known universe.

Unlike us humans, crabs have their bones on the outside. The bones don’t grow along with the meat and organs, so Mr. and Mrs. Crabbe have to shed their whole skeleton many times in order to grow. The crabs literally flip their lids and back out of their outgrown shells, then hide in the sand until their upgraded shell hardens. Neat system, huh?

Well, like the tramps of the Great Depression who made interesting and useful objects from castoffs, this beachcomber art is constructed of no-longer-needed crab bones. (I wish to publicly thank all the hardworking Red Rock crabs and Dungeness crabs who have outgrown of their shells and left these for me on the beaches of Camano Island, Washington.) And an extra-special shoutout to those crabs that let me catch, cook and consume them as a sacrifice to the cause of crustiness!

Ready to display on your wall; just hang and admire your own image! Gathered, designed, and lovingly handcrafted for you as an excuse to spend more time on the beach. Enjoy!

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Plastic, PayPal and Etsy Direct Checkout are welcome. Please remit no later than five business days after the purchase. I also accept USPS money order, cashier's check or personal check, cash and dark chocolate. Payment by check does slow things down a bit due to the time required for the transaction to clear. Washington State residents get to donate sales tax, so that is automatically collected.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges

Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery

I don't accept cancellations

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)

Returns and exchange details

If there is ever a problem, talk to The Crab and we will work out an agreement that is to your satisfaction. In the event a return for refund is requested, Crabby Chris must receive such request in writing within THREE DAYS of receipt of order; and she must receive the returned product within FOURTEEN DAYS. CUSTOMERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR RETURN SHIPPING COSTS. In no instance will a refund exceed the amount of the original transaction.

Shipping policies

Most orders are shipped by USPS Priority Mail with Tracking, which generally takes two or three days' transit time within the U.S. If you need to have an order shipped to more than one address, please order separately for each address. You will receive a shipping notification with tracking number.

Orders outside North American are shipped WITHOUT PILLOW INSERTS to save on the high cost of shipping and the likelihood of inspection delays at destination. Please convo the artist if you have questions regarding this option. I do not ship to Spain; all previous attempts have been futile.

Customers are responsible for any customs, tariffs, taxes or inspection fees levied by their local or federal agencies. Crabby Chris has no control over the amount of time a parcel may be in the hands of customs agents of any country.

Additional policies

I am pleased to do special orders that are reasonably within the realm of what I ordinarily produce; such things as a simple color change usually involve no additional charge. Other adjustments such as a custom size, shape or motif are usually very do-able; drop me a line and we can discuss.

NOTE: If requesting design changes or a custom colorway, please be advised that CUSTOM WORK IS NOT RETURNABLE as it is not marketable to other customers.

FAQs

Crabby Chris™ is pleased to render almost any of her designs in almost any color on almost any shape of pillow. If you would like to discuss your ideas or request adding a name or text to your order, please convo the artist.
Pillows can usually be made smaller or larger to fit your needs. Please feel free to inquire of the artist to work out the details.
Every handcrafted Crabby Chris™ textile item has a sewn-in care label for easy reference.
All items are enclosed in a sealed cello bag and shipped in a sturdy recylable polypropylene mailing bag. A matching wide grosgrain ribbon and bow can be added to your purchase at your request. If you would like a short personal message hand-lettered in a greeting card, make your request in "Note from Buyer".
Please feel free to inquire through Etsy convos as to whether your order can be customized to your specifications. Once details are worked out, Chris can create a custom listing, the purchase of which starts the project. Customized and personalized items are non-returnable and non-refundable as they are not marketable to others.

No; the nickname started as a joke. Like many things, it simply got out of hand.
