About

the headless buddha

it began in 2012 as "the bodhi tree", named for my sweet son, Bodhi, who continues to inspire me daily. to be honest, I had no idea what I was doing, and took a break from selling for a while. as I learned and grew and my style shifted, I felt a new name was in order. "quantumbeatnik" was born. eventually, life changes got in the way of my business, and I had to close up shop again.

"the bodhi tree" is the name of the tree that the Buddha meditated under for 40 days and nights. although I don't label myself as a Buddhist, I have long been fascinated by the Buddha as a symbol of personal enlightenment. over the years I have collected many Buddha statues, trinkets and pendants... but they always suffer the same fate. they become decapitated right at the top of the neck.

the main thing holding me back from starting a shop was choosing a name. after my biggest Buddha statue got knocked over and decapitated, I started to notice a pattern. at first I was frustrated, and then I became fond of my headless buddhas. after a quick google search informed me of the iconic headless Buddha statues in Thailand, I felt it was meant to be.

"headless buddha" embodies the morbid and macabre side of my being as well as the mystical, spiritual side.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 7, 2018
Here is a list of all of my policies. I tried to keep it simple and concise. Feel free to message me with any questions!

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Cancellations must be made within 48 hours. Returns must be made within 30 days of purchase. You must cover return shipping, but a full refund for the cost of the item will be given. I reserve the right to refuse refunds or exchanges for items that return to me damaged, so please pack them carefully!

NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES will be given for these items: made-to-order items, clearance items, anything on sale for 30% off or more.

I always check to make sure I make high quality, sturdy items. However, if an item arrives damaged, please send me a message. I am happy to repair these items for free. If an item breaks at some point later on, message me to discuss repair options.
Payment
I accept PayPal and credit cards.

Payment plans are available for items over $40. I require a non-refundable down payment of at least 25% to hold the item. This payment counts towards the total cost of the item. Subsequent payments must cover 25% or more of the total cost. (For example, if you want a $100 item, your down payment needs to be at least $25 and each payment needs to be at least $25.) Payments must be made at least monthly but you are welcome to make them more frequently if you like, or pay for more than 25% at one time.

I accept trades for certain things, mainly dance hoops, handmade clothing, and other jewelry. Shoot me a message for details.
Shipping
I am a one woman show and I make all of my boxes to order. Orders are packed on Sundays (for orders placed Wednesday-Saturday) and Wednesdays (for orders placed Sunday-Tuesday). This ensures that all packages arrive within 5-8 business days. If you need something sooner, I can rush your order for a small fee.

I charge $3.50 for USPS first class shipping. This covers the shipping label and materials. You may upgrade to priority 2 day shipping for an additional $4. These costs may increase when USPS shipping rates increase.

International shipping is a flat rate of $14.50. This covers shipping only. Your country may add customs and import fees, and may hold your package for pickup. As a seller, I cannot be responsible for any fees added by your customs office. It is the buyer's responsibility to be aware of all customs laws and import taxes.

If you have any questions, message me!
