On Etsy since 2016

All the other stuff...

Some of you may know me from my other Etsy store, stupidcats. My name's Michelle, and I'm an illustrator based in Nottinghamshire in the UK.

I finally opened The End Cupboard Etsy store in July 2018 as an outlet for my non-cat based work. The name comes from a mysterious cupboard at the end of a passage in my childhood home that was full of anything and everything saved by my mum - empty toilet roll holders, carefully flattened sheets of shiny paper from Easter eggs, flattened cereal boxes, tins of buttons and beads... basically anything that could potentially be used to make whatever my heart desired, all carefully boxed and labelled. I chose the name because the idea of this shop is that it could contain anything, so keep checking in as my inventory will increase as I work through the contents of my brain and numerous sketchbooks and random scraps of paper.

The typeface used in the logo and on some items in the shop is unique to me - I've created it from my own scraggy handwriting. Designing and creating my own typefaces has been on my massive "things to do" list since the early 1990s - I might not work fast, but I get there eventually...

Please note that some of the items in The End Cupboard will contain swear words, so are listed as mature content. You'll be able to tell if things get sweary, because the first product image will have the offending words replaced by asterisks. You have been warned...

Frequently asked questions
How long will you take to prepare and ship my order?

Orders are usually available for dispatch within 3 to 10 working days - in the very rare event of it taking longer than this, I'll let you know in advance. If you require your order by a certain date (for example, a birthday), please let me know.

PLEASE NOTE: I have set my processing time to 3-10 days because I frequently work away from home for my non-illustrating job, so I may well be at the other end of the country when I receive your order. Most of the time though I manage to despatch within (or earlier than) 3-10 days. Processing times stated are how long it takes me to put your order in the post - it does not include the time it will take for yo

Why do I have to pay for shipping?

Because packaging materials, postage and all the other costs associated with sending your order to you unfortunately aren’t free! That said, postage prices are sometimes difficult to estimate accurately (especially when multiple items are included in the order), so on the odd occasion my shipping prices may be significantly off, in which case I'll refund you the difference (less processing fee) if you paid too much. My shipping prices include packaging costs to keep your order safe on it’s way to you, and a processing charge.

How are your products shipped?

In the UK, Royal Mail First Class post is used for orders under £20, First Class Signed For for orders over £20, and First Class Tracked and Signed for orders over £50 - this is to ensure that your order is covered by appropriate insurance values should anything go wrong during shipping.

Outside the UK, I use equivalent Royal Mail Air Mail services according to the total value of your order.

Note that shipping from the UK to other countries can take time, and sometimes packages may get stuck in customs for a bit, or delayed by weather conditions. Please be patient, but if you're worried about how long shipping is taking please get in touch by Etsy co

Who is responsible for paying Customs duties and import taxes?

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COST OF IMPORT DUTIES, TAXES ETC ARE NOT INCLUDED IN ITEM OR SHIPPING PRICES - THESE ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PAY WHEN THE ITEM ARRIVES IN YOUR COUNTRY. PLEASE CHECK YOUR COUNTRY'S IMPORT LAWS IF YOU'RE NOT SURE IF ANY OF THESE FEES APPLY TO YOU.

I want my order sending to a different address - can you do this?

Orders will be sent to the shipping address indicated on your Etsy order, unless requested otherwise in the Notes To Seller at the time of ordering, or by Etsy Convo only within 24 hours of ordering.
