Announcement    HI! Thanks for stopping by to visit Grichels!!! ***Please see our "Policies" section for information, including custom orders and international shipping.***

"What is a Grichel?" you might ask.

Grichels - The being that creates the feeling of being watched in the woods, when you know you are alone. The footsteps you hear behind you - that you assume are just echoes of your own. A swaying in the trees when there is no wind. Sometimes the eyes in the forest aren't always the animals watching you. They could very well be a Grichel. Not really a folk of a sort, more of a spirit, or entity. A wrinkle in reality, observing the ways of the ages. Watching as an old one would watch a small child. Not intervening to correct or advise, just watching and appreciating a child's success, and giving a sympathetic smile to themselves when eminent failure occurs. Just watching, remembering, recording, to someday share with someone who would listen.

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
If your item is not to your satisfaction, we will gladly return or exchange it within two weeks of your purchase date. We cannot offer returns or exchanges on items that we have customized or altered to meet your specifications. We are not responsible for shipping costs incurred either way on returns or exchanges - shipping is an obligatory cost of service that the USPS requires and those funds are not ours to refund you. We are happy to repair any damaged items when we are able - as most of the items are one-of-a-kind, this may not always be possible. We are not responsible for replacing or refunding items lost in the mail, and please check your Etsy mailing address to be sure it is current before placing your order.
Payment
We currently accept payment via PayPal, credit card, or Etsy gift card. Payment is expected upon checkout.

Please check your address before completing your purchase. We will ship to your Etsy address unless stated otherwise.
Shipping
Please allow 3 to 5 business days from your date of purchase for your item to be mailed out. We currently ship with tracking via USPS Priority Mail and regular USPS First Class postal services once per week, though if you need your package mailed out for a special occasion, we will do our best to accommodate you. Please include this information with your order or in a separate convo - if we don't know you need your item by a certain date, we can't try to get it to you by that date! Postal insurance and delivery confirmation are not included in the shipping charge, but are available upon request for additional cost. Due to having so many items that are vastly different weights and shapes, shipping on multiple items will most likely be overestimated - please place your order, and we will refund your shipping overages once your items are packed together and weighed!

We can ship internationally - if the international shipping cost is not listed on the item you'd like to purchase, please send a convo with the item(s) you are interested in, your full name, and mailing address to request a shipping total.

Our policy is to put exact information on all customs forms. If we do not and are caught "cheating", the penalties could be anything from monetary fines to the suspension of our business license. Please be aware that you may be responsible for customs fees and taxes upon your package(s) arriving in your country. Check with your postal service before ordering if this is a concern. Sorry! Thank you for your understanding.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that due to lighting and color settings, colors shown may not appear exactly as they are in real life. We've done our best to take pictures that represent the colors accurately, but there may be some slight variation.

These faces are hand crafted from genuine leather. Any markings are a distinct part of the character and texture of the leather, which just makes each piece even more unique.
All of our items are sold as-is and as you see them in the listing, please convo us before making your purchase with any questions or needs for clarification.

If you have questions or concerns, it is not efficient to e-mail us - we only use e-mail for Renaissance Faire business and do not check it regularly. The fastest way to get in touch with us regarding Etsy business is through Etsy convos. Please be aware that we are always out of the studio (and sometimes out of the state!) on weekends and holidays, so we may not be able to return your convo until the next working day.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept custom orders. We have several booths at Renaissance Faires across the country, and this is where our main business occurs. We are only able to list pre-made items on Etsy when we can spare them from our faire stock, and everything we currently have available for Etsy purchase is always listed at any given time. Keep an eye on our shop - you never know what might pop up! :) Thank you!
