Quirky Designs by Gem - Quirky Gifts from Devon

Hi everyone,

I am Gemma the creative and crafty lady behind all of the things that you see in my shop.

I am originally from Norfolk, (where my family all still live) but moved to Devon in 2012 following my heart. After having a baby in January 2014 and with my partner working away, I started to fall in love with painting again. I decided to set up a Facebook page with a few of the paintings I had done (which were mostly cats.....Yes I am a crazy cat lady) and by the end of the first week I'd had two orders.
What followed was totally surprising and I ended up creating a business and never went back to work after my maternity leave ended. I love that I can spend time with my children and work from home.

I have always been arty and creative, studying art at both GSCE and A-Level. It's a passion I always shared with my late Grandad. He has inspired me to try and achieve as much as possible.

In 2018 I expanded into two more shops, a Wedding Themed one and a Sweary Mature Content Shop as well as keeping my main shop.

Frequently asked questions
I like an item but I want it to say something else?

Absolutely you can!

All items in my shop are personalised by hand. I use hand held engraving tools, wood burning tools and my own hand writing. This means wording can be added.

Contact me and we can discuss your order and set up your own Custom Listing.

Care instructions

All hand painted mugs, bowls and glasses will be sent with care instructions. It's important these are followed to prolong the life and quality of the item.

Postage

Everything is posted 2nd class signed for, with Royal Mail unless specified on the listing. I cannot post to PO Boxes unfortunately.

If you need an item quicker than 7 working days + shipping time you will need to add on the Rush MY Order add on.

Why does my item take so long to make?

My turnaround time is currently 4 weeks. This isn't how long it takes me to make your item, but I usually have around 30 orders at any one time, and I work my way through these in order.

When I get to your order its around the 3 week point.

Shipping time is additional to this.

What does it mean to 'Mark as gift'

I don't print and send invoices to save paper, but if I did no pricing would be on the invoice.

CUSTOM ORDER REQUEST

When you select 'Custom Order', this is merely a message to me to build you a custom order. This is not an order. An order is only placed once it has been paid for.

Rush My Order

All of my listings are a 2-3 week turnaround for making them with postage time additional to this. When purchasing the RUSH MY ORDER add on, this means I will make your item in 3-5 days and then postage on top.

Due to the creation of some items I can't make them any quicker than 5 days because of paint curing.

The rush my order add on will take off aprox 10 days from your wait time.

RUSH MY ORDER WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE SEPT-NOV
