joyjoie's Shop Announcement

During the month of May, rush orders will not be available. If you need the item for a specific date please check processing times for all items before you purchase and if you have any queries please convo me.

Winner of the Australian Craft Award 2013 (Kids - Toys) with the secret hideaway teepee range!

See Ready to Ship section for teepees available for immediate postage. Express post is recommended even within Australia.

I offer combined shipping, to see the total for shipping charges for multiple items you need to add them to your cart. The total may be substantially less than the sum of the individual costs. Otherwise please convo me for pricing.

Teepees (excluding pet teepee) ship in a dual purpose packaging. I use a standard sized pillowcase for storage and it doubles as a pillow cover for a pillow you may decide to have inside the teepee for lazy afternoons of reading.

Teepees are predominantly handmade to order so this gives you scope to personalise and customise the tent, send me a convo to discuss options.

Lovingly designed and crafted the joyjoie bespoke teepee range is stylish, functional and innovative. Inspired by nature, the nature of children and natural fibres the tepees can be a haven for rest and play in a modern world. Designs appeal to a child’s view of the world while maintaining an aesthetic that parents can tie-in to home or nursery décor.

In the original 1sqm size all the styles are available in the latest fabrics. The extra large tepee (approx. 1.4sqm) - introduced early this year - is great in the minimalist style or can be customised. It is proving popular with adults, larger families and for parties and wedding props.

customer feedback "beautiful handmade teepee bought from Joyjoie ... craftsmanship in each stitch & the detail of each decoration show just how much love is put into the making of each teepee. what's not to love xo" for more thoughts about my products see my feedback page.

I am surrounded by teepee's...and I love it!

A note on customisation - Let me know what you want. The decorations can be tailored to your needs. Want more windows? Curtain? Something designed for you? If you have a specific print fabric in hand that you want to use, I can create a listing for you (provided you have enough!).

joyjoie's Shop Policies


Welcome to the serious part of the shop. The following policies are to help us have a smooth transaction so that you can get as much joy from your joyjoie creations as I have had in making them.


Payment for Joyjoie purchases is via Direct Checkout or PayPal. Please arrange payment within 72 hours of posting your order.

Please advise of any payment issues within this period if they arise.

Non payment will result in the item being re-listed as a cancelled order.


All items are made to order and are shipped the next day after the item is completed according to the time requirement listed on the item description. When you place you order Etsy gives you an estimated postage date based on the processing times for the item you ordered. Processing times are available for each listing near the top of the shipping and policies tab.

Please note that using the Express Post option make the time spend in transit with Australia Post shorter but does not impact the lead time for making your item. Should you require faster turnaround please contact me via convo to discuss a rush order.

Standard shipping used by joyjoie within Australia is via Australia Post and may be Regular Post, Registered Post (this requires signature on delivery) or Express Post.

If Express Post is required please use this option at checkout.

Shipping Internationally postage and insurance costs vary by country so please contact me for a shipping quote for any item you would like to purchase.

Any fees such as those imposed by customs or quarantine including taxes, tariffs, duties, country entry charges, etc for items shipped internationally are the responsibility of the customer. Please make yourself aware of any potential fees and changes you may incur on importing the product as we do not take responsibility for this aspect of your purchase. Returns will not be accepted due to customs fees.

Refunds and Exchanges

Care is taken in the packaging of your items however for peace of mind I advise insurance for each item as I am not responsible for shipping errors such as items lost or damaged in transit. Please ask if you would like to add insurance to your postage.

It is always my best endeavour to describe and photograph the items in the joyjoie shop such that you can be sure of your purchase. I do understand that sometimes a return is required and in the event that you would like to return the item for a refund please notify me within seven days of receipt of the item. Any costs incurred in returning the item such as postage and insurance will be the responsibility of the purchaser. The refund (less actual postage paid to ship the item if it has been posted) will be processed within 7 days of when the item is received by me in its original condition so I recommend you use registered or express post platinum for the additional security this provides.

Custom made items with personalisations or other special requests cannot be refunded unless faulty. I personally make and test each teepee prior to postage to mitigate the risk of fault.

Items lost in the post will unfortunately not be able to be refunded. If the item was insured I will be happy to make you another item once the claim is paid, where possible an exact copy will be made otherwise (for limited edition fabrics) a mutually agreed alternative will be made.

In the unlikely circumstance that the item I ship is left unclaimed by the buyer and finds its way back to me I will make best endeavours to contact the buyer and if this fails I will refund the buyer the purchase price less the actual shipping cost or shipping fee, whichever is higher (given that I did post the item and it is the responsibility of the buyer to pick it up or receive delivery).

Additional Policies and FAQs

All items are made in a pet/animal free and smoke free home. In some cases the fabric is washed prior to making the item and this will be listed in the item description.


Can you supply poles within Australia?
Absolutely. It will impact the shipping price and necessitate the use of a courier. If you would like the poles included please convo me before you purchase so that I can get a shipping quote from the courier. As the dowel I use is a standard off the shelf item in larger hardware stores it may be more cost effective to purchase the poles locally.

Can you supply poles internationally?
For buyers outside Australia I recommend getting the dowel/poles from a local hardware store. The poles are not possible to send internationally as they are wood and thus come under scrutiny at customs/quarantine and you may have to pay some fees (a situation I am sure you would like to avoid). It would also substantially increase the shipping cost due to the length of the items. I am sorry if this is an inconvenience. I do send you all the specifications you need to buy the poles so that it can be ready to go when your teepee arrives.

If you have any questions please contact me prior to purchase.
Feel free to contact me regarding consignment inquiries or Custom orders.

Thank you
