*schremlin, n. \sh-'krem-lin\: A mythical little creature that is adorable, furry, and has a big heart and a wagging tail. Tends to be high energy and to have a mind quite of its own. Though it often gets into trouble, its adorable face and loving nature renders any thought of scolding useless. Not to be confused with a small dog.

The notebook is perfect - I ordered this for a birthday gift and thelittleschremlin provided an excellent service to ensure this arrived on time. The notebook is excellent quality and the personalised tengwar word beautifully written. Thanks for a great purchase!

Shop owner responded very quickly to all my questions and the package arrived earlier than anticipated. The penmanship is very beautiful and everything was packaged in a little brown giftbox tied with string. Definitely considering buying more in the future!

About

little schremlin, big heart.

Hello there! My name is sarah; I make all of the items in the little schremlin store. My partner in crime and supervisor here at the studio is murphy, a.k.a. ‘the little schremlin’, who is of course is also the shop’s namesake. What is a schremlin, you ask? Well, in short, a schremlin is an adorable, furry little creature with a big heart and a wagging tail. That may sound somewhat like a small dog, but I can assure you that murphy is something very different.

I started my shop in December 2010 while I had two weeks with nothing to do. As I sat on my couch watching a Star Trek: TNG marathon with a blanket wrapped around my shoulders and a schremlin cuddled up in my lap, I realized something. I was not having as much fun and adventure as the crew of the Enterprise, and that needed to change. Without the aid of a cool vehicle like a space ship, blue box, or dragon, I had to make due with my car. I set out to the faraway land of Craft (read: into town to my favorite art supply store), and returned with...polymer clay. And I loved it.

So with that, I set up shop and began making polymer clay jewelry and figures with science fiction, food, and nature themes. I had a great time selling on Etsy and after a year started to participate in art shows and got accepted to my local artisan market. Over the years I've really gotten into paper arts and coppersmithing, and this year I've started adding items in those mediums to the shop. I absolutely love working with metal and paper and am really pleased with all the awesomely nerdy stuff I've been able to create.

I am truly enjoying the creative adventure I've been on for the past few years; I've always been an artist, but there is just something so much more rewarding about interacting with people who I have reached through the items I make. I love seeing or reading people’s reactions when they receive something from my little shop, and I always look forward to participating in fairs and festivals which are so exciting and fun. With that I have to say a big ‘thank you’ to all of my customers; without you, I wouldn't have my shop.

best,

sarah + murphy

Shop policies

Last updated on November 5, 2013
Thank you for visiting the little schremlin! All items in this store are handmade (I work in a “mold-free” environment!) by me and inspected by the little schremlin himself to ensure that each item is made with care, love, and quality. All jewelry is lead/nickel safe so no allergy worries!

Please read the following policies before you make a purchase and feel free to convo me if you have any questions about them.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment through PayPal and Etsy Direct Checkout, both of which accept credit card payments. Payment is due within 24 hours of purchase; if is is not received within that period your order may be cancelled.

I live in Michigan and love to see orders from my fellow Michiganders who have chosen to shop locally! Therefore I do not punish you by charging sales tax; i pay it for you as my 'thank you' to you for supporting a Michigan business. I am not required to collect sales tax from any other states or countries, so no one is charged sales tax in my shop.

Shipping
TRANSIT CLASS // TRACKING // INSURANCE:
Most items will ship within two business days of cleared payment; please see individual listings for details. Custom orders will take longer because I will also need time to make your order; crafting times vary by item.

For U.S. customers, the default shipping for items 13oz or less (including packaging) is USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation. Default for anything over 13oz will be USPS priority mail with delivery confirmation. Wedding cake toppers and terrariums will be shipped USPS priority or express mail with delivery confirmation and insurance.

For international customers, the default shipping for all items is USPS first class mail which DOES NOT include tracking. If you would like tracking on your package, please let me know before your purchase. International customers are responsible for any taxes and/or import fees for items purchased.

I am not responsible for items that are lost or damaged in transit. I pack all items very well but have no control over how packages are handled during the delivery process. If you would like to purchase insurance for your item, please notify me (preferably before purchase as I ship within two business days). If an insured item is lost or damaged in transit you can receive either a full refund or a product replacement.

If you require expedited shipping, additional tracking, and/or insurance, please let me know before your order.

ADDRESS:
I ship to the address you enter during checkout. If you use Etsy Direct Checkout, you will enter a default address when you create your account and may change it during the time of purchase. If you use PayPal, the default shipping address will be what you entered into PayPal when you created your account. This address may also be changed during checkout. If you are ordering an item for another person as a gift and would like it to ship directly to that person, please make sure his/her address is entered before you complete your order (do not just tell me what the address is - please actually change the shipping address during checkout).

PACKAGING:
All items in the store will be sent to you in a gift box - if you would rather not receive you item gift wrapped please let me know in the "note to seller" at checkout. I care greatly about the environment and use recycled, recyclable, and biodegradable shipping/packaging materials whenever possible and sometimes re-use shipping boxes and envelopes. Gift wrapping is always new.
Refunds and Exchanges
The little schremlin is all about making things that you like. If you are not happy with your purchase, convo me so we can resolve any issues.

If you added insurance to an item that was lost or damaged in transit, please contact me to receive either a full refund or a replacement. Items, except for wedding cake toppers, do NOT automatically come with insurance; if you wish to add insurance to an item, please contact me before purchase. If you contact me after the item has been sent I cannot add insurance.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love to make custom orders! Whether you have a general or specific idea of what you want, convo me and we can come up with the perfect gift for you or someone else.

Please note that as all items are handmade, no two are alike. Therefore, if you request two of one item or see in the item description that the pictures are not of the exact item you will receive, there may be slight variances in color, size, composition, etc.

If you have any questions about my shop or an item in it, please convo me :)
