About

Hand-painted wooden dolls that are long lasting art objects.

Goose Grease started by painting custom families and wooden dolls for children, when a couple of brides requested custom doll portraits for their wedding cakes. Just like that, back in 2008, the idea of the peg doll cake topper was born. It has caught on as a creative way to add a personal touch to your wedding decorations and, at the same time, have a long-lasting art object as a memento.

When Goose Grease first started, the only adult peg bodies in the market were dress shaped dolls. Alongside another fellow Etsy seller, Goose Grease teamed up with a carpenter in Texas to design the adult straight bodied peg. This is how the dress and pant couples came to be.

After getting more and more involved with the beauty and simplicity of wooden peg dolls, also wanting to help our fellow artisans, we decided to take a step towards fair trade, establishing a fair trade agreement with a carpenter from Bogotá, Colombia (where Juan is from). Hoping to make a difference in a world full of impersonal mass-produced craft supplies, we began having new doll shapes and sizes built, hand chiseled on an electric lathe. The dolls are made from Urapán, a sustainably forested wood // where one tree is used, two are planted. In the fall of 2011, we hired a young Colombian artisan to paint our in-stock items and have since trained and hired 3-4 more artisans to help us with our wholesale standard designs. We are happy to say that each and every one of our fair trade dolls has its own personality, carved by an artisan we know by name and whose hand we’ve shaken.

Shipping
IMPORTANT: We ship via USPS, unless otherwise asked. We do not add insurance or offer shipping upgrades unless asked to do so. With this service, some international packages are NOT trackable once the package leaves the US. For tracking, please upgrade shipping to EXPRESS SHIPPING, FedEx, or another private carrier.

VAT for INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: You will be responsible for any local customs or import duties which may apply when the parcel arrives in the local customs. Goose Grease is not responsible for these charges. .

UK CUSTOMERS: Please be advised. We have received various complaints concerning the Royal Mail charging our customers for either customs or delivery. The shipping charge you pay Goose Grease is the stipulated price to get your package from NYC to the UK. We use a shipping software to calculate prices and pay in full before printing shipping labels. Please be advised that we are not responsible for any extra charges the Royal Mail may apply. Sorry for the inconvenience, but charges that seem to be randomly applied have led us to adopt this policy.

Unless stated differently in the listing, we ship via USPS first-class mail within 5 days after your payment has cleared, and you will receive an email notification. If your package is shipping within the US and Canada, that email notification will have tracking information. International shipments DO NOT have tracking unless they are upgraded. First class shipping takes 2-5 business days domestic and 2-5 weeks international to arrive.

CUSTOM TOPPERS: All custom toppers, unless otherwise stated, ship USPS Priority and will take 2-3 business days domestic/6-10 business days international to arrive from the date they are shipped. This service includes tracking for US and Canada only. INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, Please contact us to add tracking to your international order, as the $25 shipping fee included DOES NOT INCLUDE TRACKING. We do not offer refunds on packages lost or damaged in the mail.

Goose Grease is not responsible for products damaged or lost in the mail. Standard shipments are mailed without insurance, but will happily be purchased at the buyer's request.
Refunds and Exchanges
FOR CUSTOM PAINTED TOPPER SETS AND FAMILIES
Due to the work involved in setting up our waiting lists and beginning initial conversations with our clients, once an order is placed for a Fully Custom Painted Topper set or Fully Custom Painted Family, an initial 30% of your order is non-refundable. After 7 business days of placing your order, given that we are working with deadlines, the Fully Custom Painted Topper set is NON-REFUNDABLE.

WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS FOR MAIL-RELATED LOSSES OR DAMAGES. Especially when the customer has decided not to upgrade shipping. Internationally, the only service that is trackable is Express shipping and costs $45 USD for most items. Although we highly recommend to add tracking to your order, we have experienced glitches in the USPS's system, for which we cannot be held responsible. For even more security, we recommend using a private carrier, such as FedEx or UPS.

If you have any problem with your item that is not mail related, please contact us asap and we will do our best to resolve it.
