Shop policies

Last updated on April 15, 2012
Welcome to lionrealm! Please take a moment to review my shop policies. If you have any questions, please ask.

-Who: lionrealm is me, Laura!
-Where: I live in Chicago with my husband (Wayne), our two cats (Modi & Gauguin), and a growing fetus (due August 2012)
-What: I create crocheted afghans; accessories for babies, children, and adults; and amigurumi for all (even pets, if you don't mind extracted stuffing around the house)
-When: I've been crocheting since about 2004 or so
-Why: As a child, I remember my grandmother and mother crocheting items for me, my siblings, and others. Mom taught me the craft; it was a rough ride but we figured it out! Now that she has pretty much retired from crocheting, it's up to me to keep the tradition alive in the family. I'm excited to teach my daughter one day.

All items are handmade in a smoke-free / cat-friendly home.

Many of the items displayed in my shop represent past projects that I will re-create according to your specifications, which means you can tweak colors and sizes as you like! A selection of "available now" items are also posted.

Please contact me if you'd like to chat about your unique project idea!

PRICING POLICY: Most prices are determined by a simple calculation of materials plus a nominal labor charge. This way, I am able to keep my prices relatively moderate. If you have questions about how the price of a particular item was determined, just ask.
Currently, lionrealm ships to the U.S. addresses only. Thank you!

TIME TO COMPLETE: If you are ordering a custom (not an "available now") piece, note that several factors can affect how quickly your order will be shipped, including yarn availability, piece size, and pending orders (for those who placed an order before you did). I will give you an estimated time to complete up front, and then will give you updates along the way. Rush orders are accepted sometimes, but note that price may be affected.

If you are ordering an "available now" piece, your order will be shipped within 24 hours.
