A smiley face

My love for art was probably nurtured by mom, who is a bit eccentric but sweet wise woman. I remember that she stayed up late to make something fun and cute for us very often.

She often drew a smiley face on fruits, and it always made me smile. When the kids in my school saw the fruits I brought for lunch, they got excited and smiled as well.

The little bunny face applique she made on my school bag brightened up my rainy days.

I love kawaii sweet stuff but I also love twisted quirky ugly bizarre stuff that stimulates my curious side of me.

I'd like to make someone in the world smile with what I make, and give a little hope or strength when you're feeling down. Almost all of the items in my shop are one of a kind, OOAK, yeah just like you.

Hi I'm Tomo :) I run this little shop on etsy, Mint Coco Monster
( formerly known by Tokyo Tomo ).

I have been in love with etsy since 2007. Although my first test run of etsy shop was in 2007, this Mint Coco Monster shop concept was actually reborn and started in 2011.

Returns and exchanges
My agenda is to bring a smile to your face when you receive a package.
If your item arrives damaged, please message me via ETSY shop contact tab to let me know with a photo of the damaged item including the package. I will find a way to work things out.

If you have any questions about the items, feel free to message me before you purchase it, and Mint Coco Monster will be happy to help you.
I only accept payments through Paypal. If you have a credit card you don't need to have a PayP account to pay via PayPal.

Payment for all items is expected upon ordering.
I will take your package to the post office only on weekdays, within 3-5 business days ( which means it does not include weekends or holidays ) once payment is cleared.

I use regular international shipping (small packet via airmail ) or International registered airmail by Japan Post for most items, unless noted otherwise, and delivery process will usually take about 10 - 14 business days depending on locations. To Europe, it may take about over 3 weeks.

I also arrange faster insured shipping ( EMS ) upon your request.
If you'd like EMS for your item, please send me message in advance. I will be happy to arrange it for you. Shipping fee will be a little more expensive. I will check how much it will cost for your order.

<< What's Registered Mail ? >>

With Resgistered mail, the entire delivery process from acceptance of mail at the counter to delivery to the addresse is recorded. This service includes damage compensation. Unfortunately this is not available for some countries yet.

<< What's EMS ? >>

EMS shipping is faster delivery service. A tracking service for confirming the whereabouts of packages is available in certain countries. Loss and damage insurance system included.

Shipping will be made to your ETSY address unless you clearly indicate in the order. I do not ship to PO box address in order to avoid troubles. By ordering and submitting payment, you agree to these terms.
