About fuzzygrapefruit

On Etsy since 2008

Whimsical, Wonderful, and Made by Hand

fuzzy grapefruit began in the cold winter of 2008, from a tiny apartment in Chicago. Although the business has expanded and its creator and owner, Allison, has relocated to the Lone Star State (as well as a considerably larger apartment), the handcrafted goods of fuzzy grapefruit continue to be made with the same level of love and care that inspired its meager beginnings.

Hello fellow Etsian! It is my mission to create unique, hand-made products that will put a smile on your face. I am also passionate about being responsible with the materials I use and when possible, I make an effort to include as many recycled bits and pieces as I can in my shipping supplies.

I love hearing from you! If you have comments or questions, feel free to send me a message and I will respond as quickly as I can.

Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
Please keep in mind that each item is handmade and unique. If you are dissatisfied with your handmade goods, please don't hesitate to contact me -- refunds and exchanges will be conducted on a case-by-case basis.

Due to deadline requirements for filing insurance claims by the US Postal Service, lost or damaged orders MUST be reported to me within 30 days of the shipping date.
All customers shipping to Texas will automatically be charged 6.25% to cover the cost of Texas state sales tax. Customers within Harris County (Houston) will be charged 8.25% for local sales tax.
I ship all items using First Class Mail or Priority Mail (usually takes up to 4 business days).

To keep shipping costs down, all single notecard orders will be shipped First Class Mail, without insurance or tracking numbers. If you'd like to add a tracking number, please let me know before purchasing so that I can add it onto your shipping fees.

All international shipments will be sent using First Class International Mail (usually takes 5-10 business days). All taxes and duties incurred are the responsibility of the customer.

I try very hard to make sure you receive your item in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, because the postal service is not always as reliable as I would like, I cannot make any guarantees about when your item will arrive. I will always notify you when your item has been shipped. If an abnormal amount of time has passed since receiving your shipment notification (ie: 10 business days for local, 14 business days for international), and you have still not received your item, please let me know and I will do my best to address the situation.

If you would like a different shipping option or need an item sooner, please send me a message before purchasing and I'd be happy to put together a custom order for you with alternate shipping!
Additional policies and FAQs
Please let me know if you'd like your item to be gift-wrapped.
If you're sending an item directly to the recipient (as opposed to your own shipping address), I'd be happy to include a special note from you.

Most items in my shop are able to be customized or altered in some way. If you see something you like, but want a different color/size/paper, let me know!

If you’re interested in carrying my work, I’m delighted! Please contact me to discuss the details or to request a wholesale catalog.
