Announcement   *** Our 2016 Renaissance Faire season has begun! We are at Colorado Ren Fest from June 11th through August 7th, then Bristol Ren Faire from July 9th through September 5th. ***

HI! Thanks for stopping by to check my stuff out!!! ***Please see our "Policies" section for questions, including custom orders and international shipping.*** Thank you!

Please come visit us at one of our Renaissance Faire booths! We are at Arizona Ren Fest, Scarborough Ren Fest (Texas), Colorado Ren Fest, Bristol Ren Fest (Wisconsin), Carolina Ren Fest (our first year!), and Maryland Ren Fest.

"What is a Grichel?" you might ask. This will tell you a little about my creations.

Grichels - The being that creates the feeling of being watched in the woods, when you know you are alone. The footsteps you hear behind you - that you assume are just echoes of your own. A swaying in the trees when there is no wind. Sometime the eyes in the forest aren't always the animals watching you. They could very well be a Grichel. Not really a folk of a sort, more of a spirit, or entity. A wrinkle in reality, observing the ways of the ages. Watching as an old one would watch a small child. Not intervening to correct or advise, just watching and appreciating a child's success, and giving a sympathetic smile to themselves when eminent failure occurs. Just watching, remembering, recording, to someday share with someone who would listen.

Box was adorable! It ended up blue (pic looks purple) so I was happy. We had seen the artist's work at the Scarborough fair and I was giddy that I found it on Etsy when I needed a gift for my mom-in-law.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
We currently only accept payment via PayPal. Payment is expected within five days of your purchase. If you need to request alternate payment time arrangements, please feel free to convo us.

Please note, PayPal is a credit processing company that handles credit card payments for Etsy shops. You may use this service without having to create an account. Please check your address used with Paypal. I will ship to your Etsy address unless stated otherwise.
Shipping
Please allow 3 to 5 business days from your date of purchase for your item to be mailed out. We currently ship via USPS Priority Mail and regular USPS First Class (no tracking number unless requested) postal services once per week, though if you need your package mailed out for a special occasion, we will do our best to accommodate you. Please include this information with your order or in a separate convo - if we don't know you need your item by a certain date, we can't try to get it to you by that date! Postal insurance and delivery confirmation are not included in the shipping charge, but are available upon request for additional cost. We do not automatically send the tracking number, but will be happy to do so if you request it in a convo or with your order info.

We can ship internationally - if the international shipping cost is not listed on the item you'd like to purchase, please send a convo with the item(s) you are interested in, your full name, and mailing address to request a shipping total.

Our policy is to put exact information on all customs forms. If we do not and are caught "cheating", the penalties could be anything from monetary fines to the suspension of our business license. Please be aware that you may be responsible for customs fees and taxes upon your package(s) arriving in your country. Check with your postal service before ordering if this is a concern. Sorry! Thank you for your understanding.
Refunds and Exchanges
If your item is not to your satisfaction, we will gladly return or exchange it within two weeks of your purchase date. We cannot offer returns or exchanges on items that we have customized or altered to meet your specifications. We are happy to repair or replace any damaged items when we are able - as most of the items are one-of-a-kind, this may not always be possible. We are not responsible for replacing items lost in the mail - please request postal insurance if this is a concern.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that due to lighting and color settings, colors shown may not appear exactly as they are in real life. We've done our best to take pictures that represent the colors accurately, but there may be some slight variation.

These faces are hand crafted from genuine leather. Any markings are a distinct part of the character and texture of the leather, which just makes each piece even more unique.

If you have questions or concerns, it is not efficient to e-mail us at Grichels.com. We only use that e-mail address for Renaissance Faire business and do not check it regularly. The fastest way to get in touch with us regarding Etsy business is through Etsy convos.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept custom orders. We have several booths at Renaissance Faires across the country, and this is where our main business occurs. We are only able to list pre-made items on Etsy when we can spare them from our faire stock, and everything we currently have available for Etsy purchase is always listed at any given time. Keep an eye on our shop - you never know what might pop up! :) Thank you!
