Handmade Crochet Goodness from Aotearoa NZ

I've been making things as long as I can remember. When I was very small I used to make my own patterns for my dolls' clothes and sew them up on my mum's industrial sewing machines. It's a miracle I didn't loose a finger or two, but it was the start of a life long love for making things...

Over the years I've been into making all sorts of things from mosaics to jewellery, clothing & painting, and right now I'm loving the wonderful world of crochet!

The Little Bee came about in 2013. My babies have finally grown old enough for me to lift my head above water and get back into transforming the many ideas in my head into reality. And it's so much fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by The Little Bee's shop and for your support :)

Returns and exchanges
I am happy to refund or exchange items IF you feel the item you receive is not the item you thought you were buying. Refunds will not be granted if you simply change your mind.

Please check the SIZE, COLOUR and MEASUREMENT of the item(s) you are ordering BEFORE you place your order. It is the buyer's responsibility to make these checks and The Little Bee cannot be held liable for the wrong size, colour etc being ordered.

Replacements will be considered on a case by case basis.

Please note that the shipping costs are not recoverable in any case.
Payment is accepted via Paypal, or direct credit within NZ.
Please make payment within 48 hours of the placement of your order. If no payment has been received within 5 days the sale will be considered cancelled and the item will be re-listed.
If your item is a ready made product I will do my best to post your package within 48 hours of receipt of payment.

Packages are generally packed down small and sent via NZ Post with tracking for added security. Sometimes items are small enough (e.g. hair clips) to be sent flat in an envelope with reduced shipping costs. Please note this option does not include tracking. Please convo me PRIOR to placing your order if you would like to add tracking to your order (add an extra $1.50).

Shipping is via international air mail and tracking is not available unless you are willing to pay the increased shipping charges. Please message me PRIOR to placing your order if you are interested in tracking.

All customs fees and taxes are the buyers responsibility.

Very occasionally items get lost in the post. Unfortunately this is outside of my control, however If you have not received your item within 3 weeks of ordering please contact me and I can contact NZ Post and/or arrange a replacement.

I am happy to combine shipping on multiple orders. Please convo me PRIOR to placing your order and I can arrange a discounted rate for additional items.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you see a style you like but would prefer it to be made especially for you in another colour or size please feel free to REQUEST a custom order. About 50% of the work I do is on request and I love the variation custom orders bring.

I endeavour to complete custom orders within 7 days, however if my workload is heavy it may take a little longer. Rest assured I will work as fast as my little fingers will go! Obviously there are busy times, like the lead up to Christmas. If you are ordering an item for a Christmas gift please allow some extra time for your item(s) to be made and account for the delayed post at this time of the year.
