CandyGraffiti is taking a short break

Note from shop owner Candy Graffiti is temporarily closed while I catch up on orders and take a much-needed mental health break and time to restock.

I will still be responding to messages regarding orders, so if you get the automated reply don't worry, I'll be responding within 24 hours.

If you're in the Phoenix Metro area, you can find Candy Graffiti at Kei Collective, and will be participating in the Monster Maid Mash popup on the 22nd!

Kawaii with an edge.

Est. June 21st, 2014

We are an independently owned and operated small business in Phoenix, Arizona specializing in handmade jewelry, clothing, and accessories. We are inspired by Japanese street fashion: fairy kei, pop kei, and visual kei are our favorites! We draw inspiration from Japanese music and culture, especially the nightlife. We also keep a close eye on the street fashion trends in Japan so we can match our inventory at a moment's notice. Japanese fashion trends change quickly and we aim to keep up!

Our aestetic is a mix of kawaii and edgy, with a bit of kitsch thrown in to balance it all out. We love spikes, pinstripes, frilly sleeves and neon. We also love skulls and aliens and Hello Kitty.

Most of our clothing is upcycled. We like the giving clothes new life and the fact that it's better for the environment.

We do everything in house, from sewing to jewelry making to running the Etsy store.

In addition to our online shop we also sell our wares at various anime, comic, and gaming conventions in Arizona, and are looking to branch out to New Mexico and California in the next few years.

Hello and welcome! :)
We make and sell quality Kawaii jewelry, accessories, and clothing.
Inspiration comes from Japanese street fashion, mainly Fairy Kei, Pop Kei, Decora, and Harajuku street trends. We love the bright colors, funky styles, and cute pieces you see in the street snaps. :)
A lot of our clothing is repurposed. We love to take vintage pieces and fun clothes and give them a new look and a new life. :)

Payment

We accept PayPal, and credit/debit cards through Etsy direct checkout. All transactions are in United States Currency (USD). We no longer accept personal checks or money orders.

Please be aware your order may be subject to state and local sales tax, depending on laws and ordinances. Etsy applies these automatically.

International customers: Please note that buyers are responsible for paying any customs taxes and fees incurred during shipping.

Shipping

Per Etsy policy, refunds will not be issued after 180 days from day of purchase.

We are not responsible for lost packages once they are dropped off at the post office. If you are worried your order may get lost in the mail please consider purchasing insurance. Send me a DM if you'd like insurance on your order.

PLEASE verify your address is complete and correct before making a purchase! Orders with incomplete addresses will not be shipped until the address is corrected. Failure to correct an incomplete or incorrect address will result in a cancellation of the order and a full refund.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR ADDRESS IS CORRECT BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER. If an order is returned to me due to an incorrect shipping address I will contact you to request a corrected address. If I don't hear back from you I will cancel the order and relist the item. If an address cannot be verified by USPS the order will be cancelled.

We ship orders through the United States Postal Service(USPS). Our default shipping method is First Class on both domestic and international packages. Each item will arrive in with lots of tissue paper padding to protect your items. Clothing comes wrapped in tissue paper with laundry instructions included as well.

We offer a variety of shipping upgrades if you need your order faster, including Priority Mail and Express for both domestic and international orders.

TRACKING: Tracking is included on all domestic orders. The US Postal Service does not offer tracking on First Class International packages, though they do offer it for Priority Mail International. If you choose to upgrade to Priority it will include tracking for no additional charge.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING INFO: Default shipping is still USPS First Class International! Etsy has removed this option for sellers, so I've had to switch to 'Other' in order to maintain my shipping settings and prices. If you're having issues with shipping at checkout PLEASE send me a convo! Worse case scenario is I set up a custom listing for you with shipping calculated manually.

Shipping can take anywhere from 7 to 14 days, sometimes longer, depending on where it is going. As soon as your order ships we will send you the receipt and customs number so that you have it in case it gets held up in customs.

Buyers are responsible for any customs fees, taxes, or tariffs that may incur during shipping.

If you have any questions about shipping please send us a convo! :)

Additional policies and FAQs

WHOLESALE: If you are interested in wholesale please send me a convo! You will need to scan and email me a copy of your state seller's permit/tax license.

CUSTOM ORDERS: I do custom orders! Please send me a convo with the following information:
-Type of item and quantity needed
-Location
-Date order is needed by
*IMPORTANT: Starting January 6th, 2015, a rush fee of 25% to 50% of the cost of your order(depending on the cost) will be placed on custom and bulk orders that give 21 days or less notice time. This is to cover additional shipping costs for ordering supplies, as they will have to be expedited and therefore cost more to ship.
Depending on the complexity of the order a deposit of 50% of the quoted amount may be required for the purchase of supplies. IF THE REQUESTED DEADLINE IS LESS THAN 14 DAYS I WILL HAVE TO DECLINE IT. I work full time in addition to my shop, so my spare time for custom orders is limited.

CONSIGNMENT: I also do consignment. :) Please send me a convo with your name, contact information, shop information, and the items you wish to sell on consignment, as well as the consignment contract.
