FlamingoIncognito is taking a short break

Loading

Note from shop owner YES, FLAMINGO INCOGNITO IS CLOSED AT THE PRESENT ... BUT,
I will reopen SOON with new Flamingo Incognito designs along with my Flamingo Regulars (like dragons 'mingos). Just type 'images' on your browser "Flamingo Incognito"...and you'll see most of my Flamingo Incognito, old and new, on the first page.

Flamingo Incognitos are always handmade (by me) with an up-cycled, pink, plastic flamingo body and post-consumer and recycled materials. And I try to use water resistant, very low VOC spray paints and eco-friendly glues. I also have to do this painting outside so I can preserve what brain cells I have left. This means having dry days outside to work, I live across the sound from Seattle in the Pacific NorthWet.

A NEW WAY TO BUY FLAMINGO INCOGNITOS:
My Flamingo Incognitos sales were done with "made-when-ordered". I love creating these Flamingo Incognitos and would love to open the shop for all those interested in "made-to orders" right now, however, my new plan is to make my Flamingo Incognitos BEFORE I take orders, not selling them, then making them made-to-order 'mingos.

I know myself well and this plan will reduce my stress level when I get 50 orders in one day. I hope you understand. With this new plan, I can finish them the 'mingos without the pressure of a deadline or a having a prepaid order haunting me. I will have a waiting list for you so you can see their progress if you tell me what flamingo Incognito you desire. I won't have to wait for the weather and I won't feel I'm letting anyone down if I tell a customer that it's going to take longer to finish.

Now my customers will see exactly what they are getting before I sell it to them. (and they will be tagged as "reserved" when posted)

My 'mingos are never exactly the same. They all have their own personalities and their own quirks. And I will still take custom orders as prepaid so no worries if your want a one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple people eater, Flamingo Incognito.

I can email you two PDFs; my 2018 Dragon Catalog plus a flyer describing what exactly goes into making a Flamingo Incognito and why they take so much time and cost as much as they do.

NEW 2018 PRICE
The 2018 Flamingo Incognito price (including domestic shipping) is $202 US.

One (1) ordinary flamingo incognito (with metal legs included) is $183. I ship 1 flamingo incognito with USPS domestic shipping for $19. Overseas shipping prices depend on where you live. I will estimate the foreign shipping for you. Foreign taxes, local fee and tariffs are the buyer's responsibility when the package arrives. (sorry, Canada, USPS now includes you in 'overseas').

Good news though; if you buy two ordinary Flamingo Incognitos, they can ship in one box for the same shipping price!

WHY I'VE BEEN GONE SO LONG
Far from being on 'vacation', our family has experienced a lot of "Life gets in the way when your are making other plans" over the last 2.5 years; Major wind and rain damage to our little cottage, two separate incidences of cancer (caught early with minimum therapy treatments), one new grandson, losing elderly parents, graduations, weddings, retirement etc. And well...those are the highlights. I'm hoping for hoping for better times and calm horizons.

I hope to see you visiting my site as soon as it is up again. I miss making these funky, fun 'Mingos! So let's talk about what kind of Flamingo Incognito you want!

I love that I have Flamingo Incognito fans out there,
Sincerely
Kate

Shipping
All Flamingo Incognitos will be shipped in biodegradable or recycled materials and in appropriately sized recycled/recyclable cardboard box (big enough not to squish wings and things) by USPS parcel post. Shipping costs will vary depending on where you live. Please allow 3 to 9 days for general delivery. If you want to upgrade your shipping to Express, there is a listing to add to your order.
If you would like to ship more than one or need your Flamingo sooner please email or convo me. International shipping is USPS First Class. The Post Office does not guarantee delivery day and while it is very efficient, there are unexpected delays - please order well in advance.

 We are not responsible for errors on the part of the buyer, such as errors in the shipping address provided or cost of international tariffs, taxes or other fees; these are paid for by the customer in their own country.
Additional policies and FAQs
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS, TAXES and IMPORT DUTIES;
Shoppers are advised that international transactions may incur import duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. These costs may be payable to the carrier either before or at the point of delivery and are the responsibility of the buyer.

If these additional costs are critical to the decision to purchase, shoppers are advised to visit their own country's online government resources for further information on this topic. A note to UK buyers, I understand this gets tricky for you with custom fees and VATs so you need to check it out before ordering.

SHOP HOURS
(Shop is open 24/7 but these are times we check emails and fill orders)
Monday - Friday: 9:30am to 4:00pm (CST)
Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED but I will still take orders
We often reply to emails during evening hours, and select weekends.
Check back often because stock changes with the season.

CUSTOM ORDERS (designed from scratch)
Custom identity crisis flamingos are also available and price depends on how complex your imagination is; let’s talk. How about wedding birds, school mascots, a replica of great aunt Suzie, your boss, a Harry Potter interpretation, your pet pug or a wizard of OZ? Anything is possible, however please do not request copyrighted characters.

Unique customized Flamingos start at $85 and vary depending on complexity of your design or needs. We’ll talk this over extensively before starting. Sorry there is no discount for multiples since these are made one at a time. Contact me at katyahiggins [at] gmail.com , subject: Customized Flamingo Incognito.

Also if you have an idea or see a design you like, but would prefer it in another color scheme, most anything is possible. Send me a mail and I´ll get back to you with a completion date and a price change (if any).
