Shop policies

Last updated on February 21, 2011
At craftgasm, I strive to make useful and decorative items out of reused, repurposed, and recycled materials. Very little, if any, new or virgin material is used in my products, which is a philosophy I've been espousing since my playground days (ah, what growing up near Woodstock will do to impressionable young minds). Shop with confidence that the items in the shop were handmade by moi and come from vintage, thrifted, or salvaged sources in the DC area.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
craftgasm accepts PayPal; please let me know if there is an extenuating circumstance in which this is not feasible, and I can try to work with you on it.
Al items are shipped carefully in reused or repurposed packaging. It's almost always an adventure to see what was lying around when it was decided that it would make good shipping material. Shipping charges cover first-class postage and the materials used, as well as travel time to the post office to mail your well-wrapped purchase. Items will ship within a few days of your order; if you need something to arrive quickly, send a convo my way and I'll be glad to send an updated invoice for Priority Mail or overnight delivery. :)

We are glad to combine shipping on purchases that are being sent to the same address. We are also glad to split a purchase up and send items to your friends! See below for gift wrapping options.

craftgasm can ship via USPS and FedEx. I urge you to send a convo if you'd like to add $1.35 to insure items of value or $.80 for delivery confirmation, as I cannot be responsible for things that are lost in the mail system. There's that little "contact craftgasm" link to the right of your screen, and I promise to be good about getting back to you.

I am happy to ship internationally; please send a message before ordering for a shipping quote.
Additional policies and FAQs

Did you wait until the last minute to send a present again? Fear not! I'll gladly ship your purchase to a friend's address and gift wrap it for you at no extra charge. A little gift note can be included if you let me know what you would like for it to say. Gift wrap will consist of reused wrapping paper, kraft paper, or tissue paper with ribbon or pretty string. After making a purchase, simply click "contact craftgasm" on the right side of your screen and let me know where you'd like it sent and what you'd like the note to say.

I welcome custom orders! If you like what you see, but would like a different size/amount/color/type of paper/etc., please let me know and I would be glad to talk to you about your needs.

I also love random notes, so please feel free to drop me a line regarding just about anything (foreign lottery winnings and deceased relatives in Nigeria excluded).

Additional Information for Wholesalers:

I will be glad to reply to your messages regarding my products as long as you mention specifically what product caught your attention; I will then recognize you as a real person and not a spambot. Unfortunately, I will have to delete all messages that ask for samples without mentioning anything specific to me. Thanks for your understanding.
