About CrudeThings

Sales 2,199
On Etsy since 2007

From hair to being a performance artist to fashion.

Crude Things is my full time job creating unique one of a kind handmade fashion, everything from Summer festival wear, belly dance costumes, patchwork dresses, big colorful crazy wigs, gypsy jewelry, headdress head pieces of all kinds, art dolls, and photographs… lol I am sure I make even more things than I mentioned. Because I make so many different things I have 3 etsy shops to separate it all into clean looking shops.

I started off as a full time hair stylist for years working in salons, doing crazy hair for fashion shows and photo shoots. I think this played a big role on wanting to make clothes and start taking photographs of models. Sometimes I would have an awesome wig & not the right outfit to go along, so i started making bright colorful clothes that I could not find anywhere else and giant stuffed animals/dolls to use in my photo shoots. At the time I was also performing a lot as a musician and in a circus so making crazy one of a kind costumes was a must!

Years have gone by now and i have become a hermit making pretty things all the time for you lovely people to buy and enjoy. I still make my own costumes to perform in as a belly dancer, one of my obsessions! Other than that i am really not sure what to write about so I am going to end it here so I can get back to having fun making things instead of doing what I hate- writing about me stuff, lol

    Like all artists I am a little crazy, so in order to stay sane I have to make things all the time. My hands are in everything from fabric for clothes, beads, & metals for jewelry and costuming. Once i make pretty things I obsess over photography!

Returns and exchange details
I do not accept returns or exchanges, so please read product descriptions and look at each photo of the listing. I take very detailed shots and give exact measurements. I will only issue refunds or exchanges on defective items, but not items damaged in the mail. If you are worried about anything getting damaged in the mail, please ask to pay for shipping insurance. Please contact me immediately if there is a problem with your order.

Please read my listing description and sizes before purchasing and be sure to check all your measurements. I do not accept returns wigs or handmade clothing. If you have any questions please contact me before purchasing.

Custom orders- i usually require a non-refundable deposit to buy supplies. The items are made especially for you so I do not take return.
I accept payment through PayPal, Postal Money Order, Etsy Gift Certificate, or Direct Checkout. If you are sending a Postal Money order please leave that in the comment box so i know when to expect payment to avoid a canceled sale. Please make money orders out to Lana Guerra.

I ship worldwide, but please remember your country may charge additional customs duty and/or import taxes. As the seller I do not pay for any applicable duty, value added taxes or import consumption taxes charged to you by your country.

If you live in Louisiana State you will be charges sales tax of 9.5%. You can see depending on where you live in the state, tax could be anywhere from 9.5% to 12%
Please make sure your Etsy shipping address is correct, if you need me to ship to another address leave this in the comment box when you are checking out, if might get lost in my messages if you do not do this.

Clothing and Accessories are shipped within 3-5 business days of receiving payment, if longer i will contact you. (Custom orders please allow 1-3 weeks to make and send.) Depending on your order, I usually ship in new sturdy bags or in a sturdy box. If your order is something fragile I make sure it is well packaged with added bubble wrap or some sort of packaging. Wigs are shipped on a foam head to keep their shape and packed in a box, this is why shipping seems high. If you want me to just send the wig in a smaller package with out the head let me know and I will adjust shipping charges. If this is a gift & want it gift wrapped please let me know.

I mainly ship Priority and First Class at times. I do add tracking to all packages in the United States and always recommend you get an insurance upgrade on all your One of a Kind purchases- Please note, If insurance is not purchased, I cannot be held accountable for any damages or losses that occur during shipping.

A Customs Number is sent to you if you are in another country, but remember after it leaves the US it is hard to track unless you upgrade your shipping to Priority Mail Express International.

If you need your purchase the next day please contact me, I will look up how much it will be to ship express or priority & adjust your fee.
