Announcement    Buster & Coco is a one woman show and I aim to bring you unique and gorgeous items that are functional and for you to enjoy. Thanks for supporting a small business from Country Victoria, Australia.

Hello my wonderful customers from around the world. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with borders closed and planes grounded, it saddens me to advise I have closed off international orders, accepting only Australian orders at the current time (whilst AustPost is still operating). This will be reviewed monthly. Stay safe and take care everyone.

And for my lovely international customers, if there is anything in the store you desperately want please send me a message and I can put it aside for you as a custom order so it will be there waiting for you when life and the mail and the world settles again.

Australian customers I can guarantee that I'll get your purchases in the post as soon as possible after ordering. Then it's in the hands of the postal services. So bear that in mind when you're making your purchase.

About BusterAndCoco

Sales 466
On Etsy since 2017

Buster and Coco ...

Opening an etsy store is something I've wanted to do for a very long time, after all I had shopped here as a customer for years. So I popped that challenge to myself on my 2017 bucket list. The months kept ticking over so it was now or never, I took the plunge at the end of October, Buster and Coco was born.

The store is named after my cat Buster and his best friend the cat next door Coco. I aim to bring you colourful unique items that can be loved and used. Be that person where people ask "where on earth did you get that, it's gorgeous". And smile!

I love to craft, ahhh soooo many crafts soooo little time! Isn't that how it goes?

Digital design and memory keeping is a passion of mine, but there's also nothing better than feeling material slip through your hands at the sewing machine, or yarn being transformed into something magical whilst the needles or hooks are flying. Creation of something from nothing. There's no better feeling.

I learnt to knit at the knee of my grandmother as a young child and crochet was taught to me by my Great Aunt Lil. I must give a nod to those two women who started my love of craft. Though back in those childhood days I would wind that yarn so tight that the plastic sticks would break much to both their despair. Thankfully those days have gone and I'm a much better knitter and crocheter, however now I've fallen in love with creating with rope and the glorious colours of beautiful fabric.

I'm also a runner, so hmmm yes, you may have guessed a small theme running through some of my mug products :-) Check out the running gifts on offer.

I live in Country Victoria, Australia, I love the great outdoors, I'm an animal lover, and a chocolate devotee, and shout me a great cappuccino and we'll be friends forever! Enjoy.

Frequently asked questions
Where is Buster & Coco located?

I’m located in Australia in a little country town where everyone (or just about) knows your name.

Gift wrapping is available

Here's the good news, I offer gift wrapping. Oh how I love to wrap pretty parcels. Gifts will be wrapped in the Buster & Coco's colours of red, black and/or white. It will look fabulous!

So just select gift wrapping at check out.

If you would like me to ship this item direct to your gift recipient please let me know in the notes to seller field when ordering. If that's the case I can include a complimentary gift card also, so let me know what message you'd like to convey .

If you'd prefer no gift wrapping no problems, your item will still be sent to you beautifully presented..

Returns and Exchanges

Returns : I do accept returns if the gift you have purchased arrives damaged. If this occurs please convo me immediately with a photograph of the item showing the damage and the packaging it arrived in, and we'll work it out from there. Buyer pays return postage and the item should be returned in its original packaging if possible. A refund of the order value or an exchange of item will be issued once the item is returned. Don't worry, I pack things very carefully so there should not be a problem.

Exchanges : Please get in contact with me and check out the Shop Policies tab for more information.

Customs fees and taxes

Any customs fees, taxes and/or duty fees will be the responsibility of the buyer, so please make sure you are aware of your county's rules in this regard.

Orders will be shipped to the address that is lodged with Etsy. Please check this address is correct before ordering.

Are you local to Mortlake (Vic), Warrnambool or nearby area?

If you're local to Mortlake or surrounding area and personally known to me, enter the coupon FREEPICKUP (all one word, no spaces) on check out and you can dodge the postage fee and arrange pick up directly from me. Just send me a message with your order and we'll arrange a time and date. Let's get ready to rendezvous!!

Postage when buying multiple items

At times when you check out with multiple items in your cart (firstly thank you for that!!), the check out process may duplicate the postage paid.

Never fear, if this happens, any over payment of postage incurred when sending your item will be refunded to the nearest dollar when I'm processing your order.

How long will my package take to arrive?

With shipping, nothing is guaranteed, except that I’ll get your purchases in the post ASAP after ordering. Then it’s in the hands of the postal services. So bear that in mind when you’re making your purchase.

Australia Post indicates estimated delivery times:
♦️ Within Victoria can take up to 5 business days depending on if city/rural.
♦️ Within Australia up to 6 business days between capital cities, then there would be extra days dependent on how rural.
♦️ International 6+ business days but then we’re at the mercy of Customs clearance and then USPS, Canada Post, Royal Mail, NZ Post delivery times once it’s hit their shores.

So please consider when ordering I have no control over the shipping times once the parcel is in the mail.
