The mug was different then I was expecting but everything else was great. I ordered the top 10 chapters and I got the one that I wanted! It was great quality. The epoxy was thick and glossy.

Marilyn did a fantastic job! My heels fit great and they added a beautiful and meaningful touch to my wedding. Thank you so much! Already recommended her to my favorite Harry Potter fan who's getting married soon!

I love it because it is Hello Kitty. The only downside was there is no nose piece, but it did not stop me from purchasing it.

Super good quality and fits my 4-year old perfectly! He didn’t want to take it off.

Mask looks great and is super good quality! Very easy to breathe with it on, too. Highly recommend!
This shop emerged from a want for fashionable nerd gear!
Often times, I find that there is never quite what I'm looking for when it comes to flaunting my fandom. Although I am most certainly a nerd, I also have a bit of a classy side that makes my fandom flaunting needs to be a bit more on the subtle side. This shop was created after I decided the best way to show my love in my own way was to create items that reflect my own style. Once I realized just how awesome some of these items were, I had to share them with everyone on the internet.
My mom calls me a "forever student." I am working toward a Ph.D. in Film & Literature with a focus on Young Adult Media I am a self proclaimed nerd and strive to produce stylish nerd items for modern, fashionably savvy nerds such as myself.

Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
When ordering shoes, please make sure that you are ordering the proper size. We will not, under any circumstance, refund a customer due to poor fit or discomfort.
It is not necessary that the address on Etsy and PayPal match. We will ship to the address that appears on Etsy, unless the buyer notifies us. If the buyer provides a wrong address we unfortunately cannot provide a refund. If the package comes back to the shop owner for incomplete address, partial refunds (minus shipping) will be considered, if the buyer still wants the package, customers will be asked to repay shipping charge. Thank you for your understanding.
Payment is due within 2 days of purchase for ready-made items. Any orders that remain unpaid after 2 days will be cancelled and re-posted.
All custom orders must be pre-paid and are non-refundable.
We will do our upmost to ensure ready to ship items will be sent within 3-5 business days of receiving payment for stock items, occasionally during very busy times it may be a little longer.
All items will be shipped via USPS Mail. Insurance and Delivery Confirmation will be purchased for all items valued above $20 being delivered to U.S. customers.
International buyers should consult with us BEFORE making a purchase. If ordering outside of the United States, we cannot track your package once it arrives at customs. It usually takes up to 4 weeks to receive your order. We cannot control your package nor can we provide insurance unless you pay the additional price.
When shipping internationally your country may have fees associated with the shipping. Some customers have to pay a fee to get their items out of customs. This fee is not associated with the fees you pay The Nerd Boutique for shipping. For further information, please contact your local Postal Service.
We have recently added international shipping options to certain items. All merchandise shipped internationally will be shipped using USPS first class mail. Anyone wishing for an international upgrade (to priority or higher) should contact us for a pricing estimate.
Please be aware that we are unable to provide refunds for any merchandise that might be lost in international transit or confiscated/held by customs.

The Nerd Boutique cannot take responsibility for any package after it has been processed by the USPS.
Additional policies and FAQs
For custom orders for shoes and purses, please contact us first. Once we have all details figured out, I will quote you a price. Once you have agreed to the quoted price, I will create a "RESERVED" listing for you for your custom item.
If you are ordering a pair of "chapter" shoes or a "chapter" purse, please be aware that this only includes 1 chapter illustration. If you would like an additional illustration or quotes or text that lie outside the chapter you choose* the charges are as follows:
$5.00 for each additional chapter illustration
$2.00 for each quote that lies outside of the included chapter (please note that there is a limit to the number of quotes that can be included. This will be determined by the space available on your style of shoe/handbag)
$3.00 for the use of title page text/illustrations
*Please note that all illustrations, chapters, and cover page requests may be be limited by availability. This is why it is important to message us prior to an order.
Please be aware that we do not sell used footwear unless it is specifically stated in the listing. In most cases, shoe listings are utilizing a new pair of shoes.
Concerning our glass potion bottles: Due to the nature of the materials used in creating your one-of-a-kind item (glass bottles and acrylic paint), final coloring may show slight inconsistencies from drying and/or bottle texture. We rather enjoy this effect as it adds to the weathered, used, and realistic look of our items. We hope you do too! Some bottles come with a cork or stopper. Many of them “can” be removed, but doing so risks damaging the paint on the item.
A General note about our items: Our items are considered hand-made art. As much as we might wish we were robots able to perfectly dot every "I" and cross every "T" in the artistic sense, small imperfections may be present in our work. We feel these small imperfections give the work character. We try to always ensure that these imperfections are clearly visible in our photos.
