Welcome to Yuzucha! This is a place where I hope you will find CUTE STUFF to make your day a little bit more fun. I craft soft felt dolls and magnets, hair accessories, and a bit of jewelry. My work is largely inspired by Japanese zakka style: folk art, simple, minimalistic, sweet, and natural. It's a little bit retro and a little bit cute. I shy away from anything that's too elegant, prissy, sugary, or foofy. I'm not sure why, but I fear big, heavy, flowery, gaudy things!

All of my items are handmade or assembled with love by me, in a clean and smoke-free home. I do have a cat. He is clean and well-groomed and doesn't touch my crafting things, but those with very severe allergies should be aware. I try to use recycled, reused, and upcycled products and packaging as often as possible, and I hope you will too! Don't throw it away if you can reuse it!

I accept payment by Paypal only. If you pay with an e-check I ship once that clears, and that may take 3-5 business days.

Please make payment within 24 hours of your checkout. If I have not received your payment, I will send you a gentle reminder e-mail with instructions on how to pay. Sometimes it happens that you put things in the cart and forget to go to Paypal and finish paying. Especially for new Etsy members, I understand that completely.

If I have not received your payment within 72 hours, I will assume you are a non-paying buyer, and will cancel the sale and leave negative feedback.
If you pay with an e-check I ship once that clears, and that may take 3-5 business days.

I currently ship twice per week by USPS First Class Mail. If you need your order expedited, you need to let me know in a convo BEFORE purchasing to find out if this is possible. Be aware that expedited shipping costs are much higher.

If your country is not listed and you would like to purchase, please contact me for a shipping quote BEFORE buying. Shipping to any other country than the USA is *strictly at your own risk*. I cannot be responsible for foreign customs or postal services, theft, slow delivery times, or damage to the product in shipping.

Customs fees are the buyer's responsibility. I enclose a packing slip which shows the item prices and the shipping address with every order I ship internationally. I cannot write it off as a gift. No exceptions.

Supply items will be bagged or boxed neatly. Crafted item purchases will come gift wrapped and ready for giving to a friend or yourself. A receipt will be enclosed. If you would NOT like a receipt to be enclosed in your package (for instance, it the item is a gift), please contact me ASAP to let me know. If for ecological concerns you do not wish your item to be gift wrapped, let me know at time of purchase.

I ship my items in bubble mailer envelopes and try to reuse boxes and bubble mailer envelopes whenever I can to cut down on waste. This means my mailer envelope might be ugly, but I promise the products inside will be to your liking! I ask for your support in this endeavor!
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be completely happy with your purchase! In some cases, I will accept returns for unworn/unused items in their original condition (in their packaging if applicable).

I cannot accept exchanges or returns on earrings or hair accessories, because of hygiene issues. I cannot accept returns for goods damaged in transit to countries outside the US.

If you have a problem with an item, are unhappy with its condition, please contact me through Etsy Conversations for information about refunds or exchanges.

Sorry, but I cannot give refunds for shipping and handling costs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage Items: Please note that vintage items are old! Their age can cause discoloring, scratches, patinas, and various signs of aging. I include photos and/or descriptions to notify you of these things. Some pieces are in better shape, and some have more signs of age. These various signs of age add to the charm of vintage designs.

Color/Size Disclaimer: Please be aware that the color in photos may look different on different computer monitors! The photos I use are as close as I can get to portray the actual color of the items. Even with my absolute best efforts colors may still look different on different monitor settings. Not only monitor settings, but the lighting may make colors look different, I use very bright lighting to ensure good quality photos, a darker room may make a bead or finding look darker.

Photos are close ups of most items, so you can see the detail. Please read the measurements to figure out actual size of items.

I'm sorry, but I am not able to take custom orders at this time.
