About

Quirky Creativity

I am driven to create, whether it be crafting, drawing, computer graphics or creative writing. A graduate of Rutgers University with a BA in Art and Education, I have been a graphic artist for my entire working career, yet that is not enough to satisfy that creative drive within me.

I have been crafting all my life but never had much of an outlet to sell my completed crafts except for the occasional craft show. Etsy has provided me with an excellent marketplace in which to showcase my unique and quirky creations.

My items are all one of a kind and from my own imagination... No kits or standardized patterns are used so my customers can be assured they are buying items they will not see anywhere else. I love slightly creepy, spooky oddities as well as anything related to ancient Egypt so many of my items reflect those interests.

I am also a published author of three humorous books about life in the weird, Wild West that is New Mexico and those books are available for sale on Amazon.com, or from my shop. Purchase them from my shop and you get the discount Etsy price AND I will autograph them as well!

Welcome to The Curi-Oddity Shop... fine purveyors of Eerie Heirlooms, Creepy Curios and Weird What-Nots. All items are one-of-a-kind and lovingly handcrafted. I like to think of my shop as the sort of place the Addams Family would patronize, so if you have a taste for the Odd, Quirky or Bizarre, you've come to the right place!

Feel free to ask me any questions you might have on any item. I do try to accurately describe all my wares but if I have missed something or you are curious about the details regarding an item, I will be happy to reply promptly to any inquiries.

All items are priced as low as I can make them in consideration of the materials used. I really do not factor in the time inccurred in crafting them as the creative process is so enjoyable for me that I cannot justify charging my customers for my fun!

Be sure to check back and browse my shop often as I am always adding new items to the inventory. Thank you for visiting The Curi-Oddity Shop!

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept payments via PayPal only. Sorry, but unfortunately I have been burned too many times with bad checks and I have no way of accepting credit card payments other than going through PayPal
Shipping
Items come from a smoke-free home. I will package and ship items/orders as soon as I possibly can once I have procured the proper shipping materials.

At this time, I can only ship larger items (boxes, bottles, wands) within the US and Canada. I can ship the necklaces and small jewelry items to some international destinations so convo me for details as to whether I can ship to your country.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO UK CUSTOMERS: Please be advised that your Royal Mail may decide to charge a Customs Handling fee. Unfortunately I have no way of knowing if this will occur or how much the fee would be. Most of my transactions have not had any such problems but recently one UK customers package was literally held hostage for both VAT and Customs Fees. I am afraid I have no way of paying these fees for you in advance when I post the package. You will have to be responsible for all fees and tariffs incurred outside the normal postage charges. Please keep this in mind before ordering.

I usually try to ship within 3 days and generally attempt to send packages either first class or priority which generally takes three days for delivery. Heavier packages may have to be shipped parcel post and will take longer to arrive.

If you require an item to arrive quickly and wish to insure the shipping be expedited to arrive by a certain date, please convo me BEFORE you purchase the item to see if such shipping options are available. Such expedited shipping may incur an adjustment to the shipping charge.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items are described as accurately as possible.If you have any questions, please convo me before you place an order that may not be what you are looking for. Refunds will not be issued unless the item either arrives broken or does not arrive at all.
Additional policies and FAQs
PRICING: I have been told that my prices are ridiculously low and because of this, some people may be tempted to think that the low pricing reflects quickly and shoddily made pieces. I assure you this is not so. I take great care and pride in the quality of my crafts.

My prices are low in order to allow them to sell quickly and find new, appreciative homes! I cannot possibly keep everything I craft so I need to sell the items I make to folk who will love them. I basically calculate the cost of materials used and add just a tiny bit for profit to allow me to purchase more supplies for future crafting. (I am not in business to make tons of money, nor is this my full time job. My crafting is a hobby and this shop is merely an outlet to disseminate my overflow of crafted items.) I do not charge for my time as I find the crafting process so enjoyable that I cannot justify charging customers for my having fun!


RESERVES: If you are interested in purchasing an item but don't have the funds at the moment, you are welcome to convo me and arrange for a reserve to be placed on that item. I will reserve an item for you for no more than a period of one month, so if the item is not purchased within that time, it will be returned to it's open status in the shop to be available for purchase by anyone else.


CUSTOM REQUESTS: I am no longer taking requests for custom/special items. I have had too many requests for special orders that I have then created, spending valuable time and materials, only to never hear from the customer again. Sorry!
