On Etsy since 2008

Labs BYC = Black Labs + Yellow Labs + Chocolate Labs

* Labs BYC * (formerly, The Lab) is a pocket-sized venture dedicated to handcrafting Labrador Retriever items from my own designs & patterns in a smoke-free environment. This shop idea hit me in the fall of 2008 when I blended two things I very much love -- making stuff & the Labs that I've shared life with -- Enzo, Kona, Kate & Suki.

As a self taught Labpreneur, I wear all the hats in this little business: from designing & creating to packaging & shipping. I actually think I sometimes dream in black, yellow & chocolate!

Thank you for your time & wishing you the very best! - Annie

DOMESTIC SHIPPING: All domestic purchases are shipped as first-class packages via the United States Postal Service to one address & include a delivery/confirmation number. Assigned shipping rates cover postage rates, fees, fuel & packing materials.

Items purchased in one order will be shipped to ONE address (yours or gift recipient's, if requested). If you would like items shipped to multiple addresses, please make a separate purchase for each mailing address.

If the USPS returns your package to Labs BYC due to a buyer address error, you will be contacted for additional postage to mail the package again; no refunds or adjustments will be given.

Additional policies and FAQs
LAUNDERING INSTRUCTIONS: If you purchase an item which requires laundering, you may notice that felt Labs don't shed & may attract fibers from other items sharing the laundry cycle! A lint roller will most likely remove any unwanted fibers; if not, try a lint (sweater) shaver.

CUSTOM ORDERS: Please contact me to discuss a custom order price & turnaround.

When your custom order is ready, I will contact you with a link in the RESERVED ORDERS section of the shop. At this time, you will be able to purchase your item. Reserved items will be held for 48 hours. Please contact me if for some reason you cannot purchase your item in this time. If I have not received any communication from you, the item will be taken out of reserve & made available to anyone.

Custom items are shipped after your purchase is completed & payment is received.

If you want to send me something to customize, please take a photo of the items first & send them to me via an Etsy Convo. If something happens to the items you sent me on their return shipment home (after they've left my possession & are in the USPS's), I am not liable/responsible for replacing them unless you have requested the addition of insurance to the shipping fee.
