The fez is Super cute
A Simple Question Starts A Business!
My friends call me Shellie. I am a mother, grandmother (Nonni) and a wife. I have always been these and a working woman.
My first job ever was as an Arts & Crafts teacher at a children summer camp. Back then I was a budding artist with no real direction but, as the summer camp was my family's business, the running of that business had to start somewhere...after 25 years I had worked every job in camp and made my way to the Director's chair.
In 2011, after years of service, it was time to retire. I had given my life to the family business. My children had grown and experienced extraordinary opportunities, and I had reached that goal in life. Now it was time to find my own direction and that was a return to Art. The question was where to go.
I focused on art in high school and then in college majored in Marketing Art & Design, and Advertising. As a youth in Girl Scouts, I learned to sew, and as a mom, helped my mother who was an incredible seamstress. So, the world was my oyster... so to speak, but what would satisfy this next chapter of my life?
That same year my first granddaughter was born, she has a beautiful given name but my husband and I call her Boopie. Right from the start she was this adorable little package of joy. Shortly thereafter my daughter asked if I could make a tutu for Boopie, and so the spark was lit.
Boopie's Closet started at craft fairs and local outlets. We specialized in the Art of the Tutu, but as our business expanded and requested came in, our product line expand too. We made boys clothing items, and themed birthday outfits, newborn and shower gifts and then we took the next step and went online.
We opened our first Etsy shop in 2012. We purchased an embroidery machine and everything blossomed!
We now personalize many of our t-shirts and birthday theme sets, we make a ton of personalized baby gifts, and wedding gifts; like Monogrammed towels, napkins and tablecloths. And we still continue our Art of the Tutu with princess tutu gowns in every character, theme and color. The most thrilling orders are still those where a client asks "Do you think you can make something like....?" Our creative juices fly into overdrive!
We have prince and princess crowns for dressing up and imaginary play, superhero capes and accessories, barrettes and headpieces, blankets, onesies, t-shirts, towels, embroidered framed artwork, gown, tutus, flower-girl dresses and bow ties...and the list goes on.
Boopies Closet has developed into career #2 combining my passion for children and art into one.
We make everything by hand, one at a time and with so much love that your little Boopie Girl or Boopie Boy will know they are special every time they wear our products.
We are expanding all the time but are ALWAYS open to help you make that special idea come to life. So feel free to ask us anything.
We hope you enjoy, Boopies Closet.
Shellie Santay Zicaro
Wife, Mother of 4, Nonni (grandmother) to 5 and counting ?!?!?! I hope...I had run the family business for 25 years and now in my "retirement" I can do what I want to do which is where Boopies Closet started.
Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept cancellations
I don't accept returns or exchanges
Returns and exchange details
If an order is in production, and you request to cancel a 50% refund will be offered as we have already spent money on the materials.
Mini Hats and hair bows or any item worn on the head will NOT be able to be returned after the box is opened for health and sanitary reasons. So if you open the box upon receipt, thats it. You own it.
We set forth our policies for our customers to read, however we cannot be responsible for those who choose NOT to read them. These policies are firm and in buying from us you agree to the following:
We stand behind our workmanship, and we want you to be happy with your order HOWEVER, since all items are custom made to order and by your specifications and, in most cases, with the measurements you have given us, they cannot be returned.
WE WILL LONGER REFUND PRODUCTS WHERE THE BUYER DIDNT READ THE DESCRIPTION OR SIZE OF THE ITEM THEY ARE BUYING. The sizes are listed in all our descriptions. The fault lies with he buyer if they "didn't know it was this small." We sell mini hats! You should read!
Orders requiring measurements but received without measurements or where the buyer says "use the standard (or any form of the same)" WILL NOT be returned for any reason.
If we should make a mistake, then we will correct it HOWEVER, please know that ALL ORDERS are photographed, inspected for quality; size & design, and approved prior to shipment.
If we accept a return for some odd reason, it MUST be in resaleable condition upon inspection, there will be a restocking fee for "free shipping" items and we DO NOT refund shipping charges, only the product cost.
If you cancel your order, within our 3 hour time limit, you will still need to wait until Etsy sends us the money before we refund it to you. This may take up to a week.
CANCELLATIONS: Generally an order (other than at high volume times) will go into production within 12 hours of payment. Therefore full refund cancellation must be within 3 hours of purchase. Since all of our orders are custom and made to order, once an order goes into production there will be a 50% cancellation fee.
RETURNS/REFUNDS: We will NOT accept returns on Hair Products or Custom Made Orders.
Should we arrange for a return from you in MUST BE in the form of the unopened package we sent to you. NOT one that has been opened and resealed. And all returns MUST BE within 3 days of receipt or the purchase shall be considered complete. Any packages opened and resealed shall NOT be reshipped without the customer paying for reshipment THEREFORE do not try to ship it to us resealed and bully us into accepting it anyway. WE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY OPENED PACKAGES since most are specialty made and/or hair products. We have this policy in place for the safety of our customers and to insure sanitary conditions.
ORDERING THE WRONG SIZE: We request measurements on every tutu/gown order. If/when an order goes into production and the measurements given are a different size/price range from what was ordered then we will default to the measurements given and adjust pricing accordingly, which means if you order a 3/4T and the measurements are for a size 5/6 (even if your child is age 4) then we will request the additional monies. You may NOT cancel or receive a refund for refusing to pay the difference as the order has already been set up for production. The customer will either pay the additional amount for forfeit the monies paid.
RUSH ORDERS: On any given day we have between 20-40 orders in house, as such you simply cannot place and order and then expect to receive it immediately, as we state in multiple areas, every thing we make is made to order, that means we do not keep stock on hand.
Therefore, customers who request an order to arrive in less than the allotted days in the listing or under 10 days, WILL NOT go into production, UNLESS the customer opts to pay a $5 - $35 (depending on item price) RUSH fee - see RUSH listing in shop listings. If we cannot accommodate you, and if you have given this information upon ordering and NOT after the fact, then we will cancel your order so long as it is BEFORE it goes into production, after that time you are responsible for the order.
RUSH fees are not simply skipping to the front of the line, it means we need to work overtime to include your order along with those that are due to ship, therefore we charge for this service.
If upon ordering you inform us that you require an order by a particular date and have indicated as such in the "notes Section" of your order, then we will do everything in our power to schedule it accordingly, or advise you otherwise.
We ship via USPS. We offer a selection of shipping choices for most items, however choose Priority Mail 2-3 day service for our larger clothing orders...We ship orders to the USA and Internationally. We will ship Express and Global Priority, if requested, and additional costs are paid by the customer.
GENERAL SHIPPING INFO: We GUARANTEE order completion and processing to stay within the listed shipping times for each item, UNLESS additional materials are required to complete that order. If this is the case, we notify you of this ahead of time.
IN ADDITION; all shipping times are extended during our heavy volume season prior to Halloween Jul 15 - Oct 30 without special notice...
HALLOWEEN SHIPPING TIMES: Please BE ADVISED: Jul/Aug/Sept/Oct will see a 1-2 week INCREASE in turn around times. However, all orders will be shipped/received in time for Halloween. Please ask about your specific order if you are concerned or require your order early for something other than Halloween.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING TIMES: International orders are produced according to regular scheduling times, then you need to add the additional shipping time. Generally speaking, shipping times are 7-14 business days.
CUSTOMS: If your country requires packages processed upon arrival into the country, we CANNOT tell you how long that will take. It is entirely up to your government. We suggest you call your country's custom's office for that information. ALSO, and taxes or fees your Customs Dept require are not known to us nor are we responsible to pay. It is the Buyer's sole responsibility to pay any Customs Fee. If your package is returned to us for non-payment of Customs Fees, we will NOT refund any monies at all. If you would like your order re-shipped you will be responsible to pay for the additional shipping charges.
IF ORDERING MULTIPLES PLEASE REQUEST A SHIPPING COST VIA CUSTOM REQUEST ALONG WITH YOUR MAILING ADDRESS...and we will prepare a special invoice for you to combine shipping.
UPGRADING POSTAL SERVICES: BE ADVISED, regardless of our efforts, once an order is placed into the hands of the postal carrier, we cannot be held responsible for their services. We will fight any lack of services on your behalf, however we cannot issue refunds unless they are issued to us first. For instance, Express Overnight delivery is the only service USPS will guarantee overnight delivery. USPS does NOT guarantee Priority Mail service to arrive within the advertised 2-3 day delivery time.
ALTERNATE SHIPPING SERVICES: We will gladly process via other shipping preferences, provided the customer takes on any additional charges.
SHIPPING LOCATIONS: We only ship to verified locations so please be certain yours is one of them.
Additional policies and FAQs
With that said customers need to realize that we have approx 20-25 orders in house at any given time, therefore orders will be made and processed in the order they are received. BUT NOTE that during our busy season that number of in-house orders is 4x times as large and why we must maintain our order and sequencing.
MASS PRODUCTION vs. HOMEMADE: We have recently learned that Etsy now allows mass-production and outside contractors for vendors, not just the artisans and trades-persons as started, therefore we want to define the following about Boopie's Closet.
When we received an order it is given to one artist who takes that order and works it from start to finish putting their own stamp of love and artistry into that design. We NEVER mass produce or stock items. Each and every order is created for you, according to your size, measurements and specifications.
We joined Etsy as an online outlet for handmade items and craftsmanship. Although Etsy has expanded their idea of handmade, we still believe in the basic and pure art form of handmade goods. It is because of this that orders take a bit longer and cost a bit more, but your order will certainly last more than one day or one event. It will be a piece that you can hold on too and pass on. Something we take pride in and work to ensure you enjoy!

OUR PHILOSOPHY: Boopie’s Closet is a Unique Infant to Adult Specialty Item Boutique. It’s a wonderful place to find one of a kind and custom gifts at reasonable prices. At Boopie’s Closet we hand make and/or embellish all of our designs one piece at a time with love, knowing it is going to be part of someone's special event, celebration or wardrobe.
We give the utmost of care and individual attention to each & every piece and with that we want our customers to understand, as with any art, there may be variations or imperfections because we do not mass produce anything! These imperfections, as artists, we view as expression and interpretation. As such, our clients embrace our craft as one of a kind works of art.
Also, please know that while every item is new and unused, we do pre-wash and iron t-shirts/onesies to ensure better adhesion of our appliques. But, if for any reason our garments don't live up to expectations, then please return it for repair and/or replacement. It is of the utmost importance that we honor our relationship with you first. Your thoughts about us are very important because we'd like to be included in your child’s wardrobe for a long time.
Special requests are ALWAYS WELCOME and usually not a problem. We hope you enjoy us!
