shopGEMINIrising's Shop Policies


Hi there and so glad you're checking out my shop. If you have any questions, concerns, or requests please start with convo-ing me!! And please share links if you like what you see. Thanks!


Please review Etsy's Dos and Don'ts for general policies.

In addition I personally require payment within 5 days of purchase, UNLESS previously communicated otherwise through conversations and agreed to between seller (myself) and you the buyer.

If, after 5 days, no previous communication has been made regarding payment schedule, I will attempt 2 contacts. After 10 days of purchase, and no payment or contact, I will start the cancellation process through Etsy.

I prefer Paypal, but will accept check and money orders as agreed upon before hand. Also, items will not ship until payment in full has been received.


Please review Etsy's Dos and Don'ts for general policies.

Available items will ship within 5 days of payment, although generally ship the next day or two. Items made to order take up to 3 weeks to receive in most cases. Contact us before purchase for a more accurate turn around time. Items will NOT ship until I have received payment. If shipping may be delayed for some reason, I will contact the buyer immediately to discuss and agree upon next action. This may include a refund and/or cancellation of transaction.

All items are shipped through the United States Postal System (USPS) via First Class unless I'm contacted and a request to use another method is made; in which buyer pays additional shipping fees. Within the US, shipping generally takes 3-5 business days. This will include delivery confirmation (and insurance on larger items).

I ship internationally using USPS first class unless requested otherwise BEFORE purchase. This method does NOT include any insurance or tracking and the buyer ASSUMES ALL RISK after the item is left with the postal system. Registered mail ($15 average) is an option that includes some insurance and tracking within the US. Signature is required for delivery, or pick up if you aren't available at time of delivery. Shipping takes an average of 7-10 business days but is not guaranteed. Gemini Rising is not responsible for delays in customs or returns of items due to lack of signature or pick up.
To use Registered mail internationally, message us FIRST before purchase to adjust the shipping price.

Gemini Rising is NOT responsible for lost or damaged items once left in the care of the USPS. Gemini Rising is NOT required to offer a refund or exchange in these cases.

Refunds and Exchanges

Please review Etsy's Dos and Don'ts for general policies.

Refunds and exchanges are not guaranteed, but I will do my best to work with my buyers. Please contact me immediately with requests and information so that we can agree to new terms. Refunds and exchanges are not required by Gemini Rising due to lost or damaged items by the postal system. If buyer prefers insurance and tracking, buyer must contact me before or upon purchase and must pay additional fees.

Refunds will be administered (after both parties agree) if there is a malfunction of the piece due to my negligence in construction or representation. This does not include natural wear and tear or the buyers disregard for disclaimers listed with the item at time of purchase.

Exchanges must be agreed upon between buyer and seller first, and will require buyer to pay additional fees for relisting, sold order, and any shipping cost.

Additional Policies and FAQs

Please review Etsy's Dos and Don'ts for general policies.

Please contact me for special requests, wholesale and consignment offers. I will do my best to accommodate with both our best interest in mind.

Thanks so much for visiting!
