About

Artisan 1:12 Miniature Food

The summer of 2011 at a local convention, I stumbled across a man selling off his collection of Re-ment sets. For those who do not know what those are, they are miniature plastic foods that come in blind boxes. I quickly purchased about 10 sets and was completely hooked. I mean, miniature foods - tiny foods! - who could resist that?

Then, while looking online early in 2012, I saw some people made their own miniature foods from polymer clay and I thought, how cool is that! I bought some clay the next day, and two years later, here I am, surrounded by a sea of my own handmade miniature foods. :)

I became serious with my hobby around April of 2013. I turned Bon AppetEats into an LLC and focused on running my Etsy Shop as a full time job. With prodding from my husband and friends, I then began attending shows in Florida where I could sell my miniatures and food jewelry.

While I have shifted my focus from strictly miniatures, I still dabble in 1:12 and other scale miniatures from time to time. At the moment I'm more focused on jewelry, my miniature fish items, and crochet. Right now I attend about 1-2 Florida conventions per month through the year. I am planning on expanding to shows in other states though!

Feel free to look around, and if you can't find something you're looking for, don't worry! I take commission and am able to create any items you may be looking for. :)

For more information, please refer to my Shop Policies.

Payment
All payments must be made through PayPal and Etsy's Direct Checkout. I also accept Etsy Gift Cards!

If I receive an e-check or transfer from a bank account and the payment is marked as pending, I will only send the items after the funds have been transferred into my account. I only do this in order to make sure they payment will go through before I send out the item.

Sales tax will be placed on all orders in the state of Florida
Shipping
Items are shipped usually 2-5 days after payment has been accepted. All items are shipped in padded envelopes. Fragile items are either thoroughly wrapped in bubble wrap for larger pieces, or placed inside sturdy small boxes for miniature items.

USPS recently (January 17, 2016) raised both International and Domestic shipping rates. I have since switched from Flat Rate shipping to Calculated Shipping.

☆What is Calculated Shipping?☆
This means when you order an item, your shipping will be based on your total purchase weight and your location. Every item now has its own shipping cost that is determined by it's weight and size, as well as where it is being shipped, and that cost is determined by Etsy.

I will refund any shipping overages of $1 or more. :)


✧✦✧INTERNATIONAL BUYERS✧✦✧

Please be aware that Bon AppetEats is not held liable for any additional import fees or additional costs (VAT) when items arrive to your country.

Customs forms cannot be marked as Gifts instead of Merchandise, and items cannot be undervalued at the request of the buyer. It is illegal to do so, therefore Bon AppetEats will always declare items as merchandise and not change the value of the items purchased.


At checkout there is an option to choose wither First Class or Priority Shipping via USPS. If you need an item sent Express - or any other form of shipping class - just convo me before you purchase and I can set up a custom listing with your preferred shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
☆★☆CANCELLATIONS☆★☆

Item orders can be cancelled and the full price refunded if an item has not been shipped yet; please send me a convo and I will be happy to cancel and refund your purchase!

If an item is already mailed and on its way to you and you want to cancel, you will need to ship me back the item in order to receive a refund for the cost of item, and you will need to pay for the return shipping. The full item price minus shipping will be refunded once I receive the item back in its original condition.


☆★☆BROKEN ITEMS☆★☆

If an item arrives broken, you may contact me along with sending a picture of the broken item. The item will then be replaced with a duplicate item at no charge to you, or you can opt for a full refund instead.


☆★☆STOLEN ITEMS☆★☆

If your package arrives ripped open and/or missing the contents, please let me know as soon as possible. DO NOT throw away the packaging. Take pictures of it and send it to me. This will aid me in opening a case with USPS for the stolen items.


☆★☆ITEMS RETURNED TO SENDER☆★☆

If your item has been marked as returned to sender or comes back to me, due fault in the address you have been provided, you will receive a refund for the item purchased minus the shipping cost. Providing a correct mailing address is the buyer's responsibility, and I cannot be held liable for shipping to an incorrect address that has been provided to me by the buyer.

In the case of a lost package or a returned package, I will only refund once I either A) have the package in hand, or B) am refunded fully by USPS for the missing item.


☆★☆RETURNS☆★☆

If you receive your item and are not happy with it for any reason, you have a two week return window for refunds. In order to be fully refunded, you will need to ship the item back to me in the condition it was sent in (no scratches, clean, unbroken). Once I receive the item, I will issue you a full refund.

It is recommended that returns are sent insured - if no insurance is purchased and item is damaged upon it's return, I will be unable to issue a refund.

If you are unsure how to properly package an item for return, please feel free to contact me so that I can instruct you! :)


✪ Please note all earring sales are final, as I cannot take returns or exchanges on earrings for hygienic reasons. If they arrive broken, please refer to Broken Items above.✪

Additional policies and FAQs
☆★☆WHOLESALE☆★☆

Items may be offered at wholesale price. Please convo me if you are interested in receiving any pieces (aside from the miniature ponds) as a wholesale order. Thank you!


☆★☆RESALE☆★☆

Items purchased from this shop may not be resold under your name or with other pieces, nor can they be cast as a mold and used to resell items that way. Thank you for understanding!


☆★☆COMMISSIONS☆★☆

Here are some quick and easy steps to make sure the commission process is started quickly and efficiently.

◈ Be very specific with what you want. Provide me with details about everything you can possibly think of - size, color, type (key chain, necklace, earrings, charms, etc). If it's a character or a type of food, provide me with a link of exactly what you want, or if it's something I've already made in my gallery, just provide me a link with that.

◈ All commissioned items must be paid in full upfront. No work will be started until I have received full payment.

◈ Due to the personalized nature of commissioned work, I will not be able to offer full refunds if I've already completed the item.

◈ Commissions are filled in the order they are received, and it can take anywhere from 3 days to up to two weeks to finish them during my busiest times. You can always ask my current turnaround time when you contact me! :)

◈ I will not work on any items that depict sexual, hate, or racist material. I reserve the right to decline taking on any commission I am uncomfortable working on.

◈ I mostly make food and miniature pond commissions only. I do not make characters of any kind. You can always ask if I can make something not food or pond related, and if I can't do it, I'll point you in the direction of friends of mine that can!



☆★☆General Information☆★☆

All items at Bon AppetEat's are individually made by hand, one at a time. Because the items are handmade, no two items will be the same, and items received may differ slightly from the pictures posted on the site. Please allow at least one week before your item is mailed, as each item is made to order.
