Blessings to you on your hoop path! <3

I bought this hoop as one of my first "professional-polypro". Could not be more thrilled. I only ordered a 30" OD lined with teal gaffer. I can't put it down. So lightweight, perfect grip and my favorite color! I really like the clear UV reactive but have yet to see it under such circumstances. The connection is easy to connect and break down. Must have an exact replica so I can do doubles.

About

Beautiful original custom day and LED hoops

It's hard to believe that I have been in business on etsy for almost six years! I opened this shop in 2007 under the name DystructionDesigns and I sold feather earrings and punk/goth clothing. A year later I went to Rothbury festival and my life was forever changed, as I picked up a hula hoop for the first time in my adult life, and hooping finally CLICKED!! It wasn't long after that that I began crafting my own homemade day hoops and I moved my feather earrings to my other store, BethNouveau (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bethNOUVEAU).

In 2009 my intense curiosity and need to understand how things work led me to try making LED hoops at home. Those first few LED hoops were far from perfect. After several prototypes and four years of beta testing by friends, I have perfected my design and added LED hoops to my store.

Hoopdance is my passion and I love helping new and old hoopers alike pick out a new hoop to suit their needs. Nothing makes me happier than designing a hoop for an outright beginner uncertain of which hoop to choose or assisting an intermediate hooper transition into lighter tubing for more advanced moves. Feel free to convo me if you need help picking out the perfect hoop size! I have constructed the following tubing chart to help you pick out your tubing: https://ny-image2.etsy.com/016/0/5183841/il_fullxfull.412581918_fgl7.jpg

Thanks for checking out my shop! I am borderline obsessed with hula hooping and creating upcycled clothing. This shop features all my hoop and clothing creations. I used to sell jewelry in this shop dating back to 2007 (wow, i've been in business for awhile!!), but all my feather jewelry is now sold in my etsy shop bethnouveau. I do combine shipping between the shops, so be sure to check it out!

Payment
After ordering, please pay me within 48 hours. If you have not paid within 48 hours, I will cancel the sale and relist the item unless you contact me.

If you plan to pay on a different date, that is not a problem, just let me know :)
Shipping
All items are made to order and completely customized for you. I do not begin production until after I receive payment. Please check out my current production time in the "announcements" section of my shop to see what the current production time is.

PLEASE NOTE: To check when your item has shipped, log into 'your etsy' and go to 'purchases' . I will update the "shipped" checkbox immediately prior to shipping your item. I will not usually convo you with a ship date since you can check it yourself at any time.


I use USPS first class mail which takes 3-5 days within the US. However, please allow up to 14 business days (not including holidays and weekends) to receive your order after I ship if you are in the US. I have had international orders take up to 1 month to arrive, although most shipments to Canada, the UK, and Europe arrive within 7 days. If you have not received your order in that time frame (14 business days for US, 30 business days for Int'l), PLEASE convo me before leaving negative feedback and I will ship a free replacement. All US orders have delivery confirmation.


I will overnight or 2nd day your item to you at your expense. Please contact me for a quote.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you receive your item and it arrives damaged by the post office, please convo me with photos and we will work out a replacement or repair.

If you receive your item and want to return it, that is fine, you may return it less 20% and the shipping charges. The item must be in its original condition. If it is obviously used, I can allow you to return it for a lesser price to be determined by me based on the amount of use. Because the clothing and hoops I sell are customized for you, it is very difficult for me to sell a custom item to someone else without marking it down. I would have to list it on sale at a loss to me.
Additional policies and FAQs
I happily do trades/custom order ideas/wholesale/consignment for any of my items

My clothing and cards are guaranteed against defects in workmanship.


CARE INSTRUCTIONS/WARRANTY for HOOPS

Your hoop is guaranteed to arrive to you in perfect condition. If it arrives and has been damaged by the post office, please convo me and we will work out a repair or replacement.

FOR REGULAR HOOPS:

I will have coiled and uncoiled your hoop several times before it has been mailed to you so that I know it is free from defects in workmanship before arrival.
Your hoop is shipped coiled down and wrapped in bubble wrap. The coils are secured with some fabric strips. Gently open the hoop into a figure 8 and then gently and slowly pull at the connectors to open the hoop into a circle. Do not yank or apply a lot of force to the tubing when it is coiled down. It is at its weakest state when coiled down and it there is a possiblility of kinking the tubing if you are rough with it. If you are gentle when opening and closing it, you will not ever have any problems. Please note that I do not warrant against kinks in the tubing as this is always caused by excessive force being applied to the tubing. After shipping, It WILL be a little wonky/ovaly looking at first, especially since it was shipped in its coiled state for several days. As it stays in its circular shape and you hoop with it, it will become a perfect circle again. I don't recommend permanently storing it in its coiled down state. The tapes were applied while it was in its circular state and will scrunch a bit when coiled down.

My hoops are guaranteed not come apart with hooping. However, if you PULL on the connections, the hoop will open up (this seems obvious but just in case...). If you improperly open the hoop it is possible to kink the tubing. The 1/2" ID tubing is thinner than the 3/4", and better for flow, hand work, and transitions.. However, this lightness makes it more prone to kinking. If you slam it hard enough, it is possible to kink it. I have never kinked a hoop, but my friend (who is a hard hooper) has kinked one of mine when she slammed it erroneously into the ground. I also do not warrant against chips or tears in the tape. This will happen with normal wear and tear of the hoop.

Over time, the tape will come loose in places. You can use some scotch tape to fix down the corners or to cover gashes. If you get some scratches, convo me and I will happily sell you some tape scraps at a very cheap price to repair your hoop's tape job. You can clean your hoop with a warm wet rag and a mild dish soap.


I do not recommend hooping on asphalt or concrete, especially as a beginner. If you hoop on asphalt, and drop the hoop several times, the tape will start chipping away and the hoop will need to be retaped in no time. I recently had to retape a hoop that was perfect for over a year. I let a beginner use it on asphalt for 15 minutes and after she was done, the taping was completely ruined.


FOR POLYPRO HOOPS:

Your polypro hoop will be a little oval shaped at first, since it was just made, and the tubing is adjusting to its new shape. There is no reason to be alarmed if it is not a perfect circle at first. As you use it, it will even out! This process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on how often it is used. Polypro hoops with a push button mechanism can be VERY SLOWLY collapsed down to 16”. Always collapse slowly and you will not have any problems. Polypro is very rigid and NOTORIOUSLY PRONE to cracking, ESPECIALLY in COLD or hot temperatures. It can also crack or break if it is repeatedly thrown on hard surfaces. There have been reports on hoop city of cold polypro SHATTERING into pieces when the tubing is cold and it is dropped. I do not warrant against cracks or breaks, as this is a known issue with polypro tubing, and generally caused by misuse of the owner. I use the polypro that I sell and know that is quality tubing. Should the pop rivet come loose, or you have issues with the push button mechanism not opening and closing, I will repair your polypro free of charge, provided you send it to me for repair. If you snap the hoop at the connection, it may be possible for me to repair it at your expense, if you convo me.




If you take care of your hoop and it will last for a really long time!!
