Announcement    USPS shipping is nearing normal delivery times. But please be patient if you experience some delays. First class is taking 3-10 days lately. A few packages are still getting "stuck" in transit though.
=========================================================
Hello and welcome to the Chilly Pumpkin shop here on Etsy!

We have a wide variety of holy medals. The medals are available to purchase individually, some in lots of 10 for a cost savings, and we also have jewelry, home blessing cords, and other items made with holy medals. Come on in and take a look around.
**Are the holy medals that are sold in this shop blessed by a Catholic priest? No, they are not. Sorry for the inconvenience, but blessed items cannot be sold (for a profit). Please seek out your pastor to get your purchases blessed if you desire. Thank you!

If you have a need for 6 or more individual holy medals, I have monthly sales where you can save 10% on your total order. This is automatically applied in your cart.
Each and every holy medal that is processed through this shop is inspected and has its jump ring upgraded to a 7mm open ring that has a tighter closure and filed for smoothness (for holy medals on ball chain necklaces the jump rings are changed to 6mm split rings). Why do this? Because each holy medal manufacturer uses a different sized jump ring; some are round, some oval; some are stronger and some are very weak. The holy medals that you purchase from ChillyPumpkin Holy Medals will have common sized jump rings.

Holy medal necklaces and a few bracelets are listed, already thought out and assembled for you. Some necklaces feature an individual saint or devotion, and some are thematic, like the traveler necklace or the protection from evil necklace.

You can also create your own custom necklace by purchasing your choice of medals and a chain. We have stainless steel chains and aluminum chains. All are reasonably priced.

We also have home blessing cords. These are Catholic home decor for door knob or bed post or coat hook. Most of the blessing cords have a St. Benedict medal which is good for protection from evil. There are blessing cords for your car as well. The design possibilities for blessing cords are endless, and we are always getting in new beading options, so send a message and we can create a custom home blessing cord just for you. Let us know your color choices, your favorite saints and/or devotions, and even your heritage, occupation and interests. It will be totally unique and just for you!

About ChillyPumpkin

Sales 4,409
On Etsy since 2014

Why ChillyPumpkin?

Many years ago I received a kitten for Christmas. I named her Pumpkin, after a term of endearment used in a movie. A few years later I got a fuzzy white puppy from my grandma's farm, and he became Chilly because he was a tiny white pup shivering in the deep snow when we went outside. And ChillyPumpkin was born! They were best buds after Pumpkin's initial shock wore off. Sadly they have both crossed the rainbow bridge, but their memories live on.
After Chilly I rescued a golden mix who I named Chewy. She destroyed many a shoe early on. My current puppy is named Micky. He's a large black dog with some brown brindle markings.
Holy Medals....
I love Jesus and all His saints. The history of the Church, while sadly tainted in many corners, is also a mecca for sanctity! Saintly history and the interactions between the saints is fascinating! It's just amazing how God works through His people! And so, Saints and their holy medals are a fascination for me. They are great for adding to your necklace or Rosary; you can get individual medals of many saints and devotions here. I also like to make holy medal necklaces and home blessing cords. Check out my ready-made items, and you can also request custom jewelry and blessing cords.
While I have a dog ..... My home is smoke-free. :)

Shipping
Holy Medals & Crucifixes, and most jewelry will ship First Class in a padded envelope. All of these items can be combined for one shipping rate. So put as many medals as you want into your cart, and one low price for shipping will be calculated automatically. Package tracking is included.

Blessing cords also ship in first class, padded kraft envelopes.

These items can also get priority mail upgrades.

I ship USPS Priority mail with delivery confirmation for vintage and larger items.

If you have an urgent need for your item please let me know when you place your order and i will ship the next day (except Sundays). If you have a really urgent need, upgrade to Priority Mail any items that have a standard shipping of First Class mail.

Please, make sure that your current address is in your etsy account and on your order page. When a package is “returned to sender” I will send you an etsy conversation to let you know. I can either refund you the item purchase price (but not the postage amount) or you can “order” additional postage via the re-shipment listing. If after two weeks of attempted communication i have not received the re-shipment fee i will refund your purchase price (but not the original postage fee). Thank you for understanding.
Additional policies and FAQs
JUMP RINGS/BAILS -- Most holy medals arrive to my workspace with a wide variety of jump rings. Some smaller, some larger, some with gaps where they won't stay on a chain.
And so, before I send your holy medals to you I upgrade all of the jump rings to a 7mm silver colored ring that has a good, "tight" close. They are ready to slide on to your chain.

CUSTOM ORDERS -- All custom made items will be photographed and a picture will be sent to you prior to shipping so there are no surprises.

Have an idea for a holy medal item or jewelry? Contact me and we'll see if I can make something to your specifications.

BLESSED? -- Are the items in my shop already blessed? __No__
Please contact your Catholic priest and ask him to bless your items.

SHIPMENT PACKAGING -- All packages are packaged simply and securely. If you are in need of a gift box, there is a listing to upgrade to your specifications. All packaging materials are clean and secure, but some are reused materials. Reduce, recycle, reuse. :)

Thank you.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Just as you are unique and special, so are all the saints and your connection with them. If you have special saints, and I have access to holy medals for them, I can create a custom necklace or home blessing cord for you. Message me and we can discuss colors and saints and price, and get a holy medal necklace or sacramental to you promptly. Most items need about 24 hours or less for creation. If gluing is required (the blessing cords are glued), then an extra day is needed for curing.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift Wrap is now available for Smalls - Holy Medals, Crucifixes, Jewelry, Rosaries and Blessing Cords. See the Gift Wrap Section above.

Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.

The majority of my packaging material is clean, recycled bubble wrap and kraft paper. All of my vintage items will be packaged this way.

The mailers are either new kraft envelopes (padded as needed) or USPS Priority boxes.

Holy medals and most necklaces are shipped in a first class padded kraft envelope. The items are placed in a small zip bag and secured to the invoice.

Item received damaged, or other delivery problem

If there is a problem with your order let's work together to get you happy with your purchase. If the wrong item was shipped or was damaged in some way other than a post office damage, then contact us so that together we can resolve the situation.

If your package was damaged or lost by the USPS please contact them at www.usps.com. Your tracking number is available on your purchases tab.

The USPS will only cover insured packaging. All Priority Mail is covered. You can also add insurance to your first class packaging for an additional small fee.

During the Time of CoronaVirus

THANK YOU, thank you, THANK YOU! For supporting my shop during this trying time.
We will all get through this by the Grace of GOD, and by our adhering to the prescribed safety steps. Handwashing on steroids!
Be well, physically, mentally and emotionally.
God bless you and keep you safe and healthy, and may He provide us with a speedy conclusion to this epidemic. -- Kathy.

Are your holy medals blessed?

Sorry, no. Blessed items cannot be sold, for a profit. Please see your local priest for a blessing after your purchase. Thank you!
