Commissions

Generally speaking, we don’t really take comissions. They can be tricky to manage and often way more expensive than usual items. We are however a very suggestable bunch! So if you’ve got an idea for something you’d love to see, please let us know! If we do make the object you’ll get first dibs on the finished piece.

All that being said, if you really… REALLY… want to commission a special piece drop us a line so we can discuss

Returns Policy

Returns accepted within 30 days of sale for refund or exchange for most products. Items broken during transit are subject to a 100% return exchange.

You will be required to pay for shipping on a return/exchange item, unless item was broken in transit.

On Wearable products such as masks returns are not an option unless there is a major production fail, subject to approval. If you need to return an item please contact us at

Printed Products

Items in the Category “Printed” are provided through a 3rd party supplier Printful.

These products will be printed and shipped directly to you from their manufacturer. This means that the shipping for these products will be separate from the Handmade items in our store. If you wish to purchase both a printed item and handmade item at the same time you may, you will just see separate shipping charges for each product type.

Care Instructions

Local Pickup

If you are local (Niagara Region, Ontario Canada) and can arrange to pick up your items instead of shipping. When checking out please choose “local pickup” as your shipping option. Then on the next page please add a note regarding your pickup plans. We will contact you to confirm.

Local Pickup is not available on Printed Products.

Shipping

Shipping costs are dependant on what type of item you buy and where are you located. Most of our items are handmade ceramics so extra care and expense is needed to make sure those items make it to you safely. Other items, such as the fabric items are a much simpler process.

Items will be shipped within 2-3 business days, and come with tracking.

Shipping Cost

The shipping costs are based on the type of item, so they range from $5 to $60.

  • Small Non-Delicate Items (fabrics): $5
  • Small Ceramics (beads/ornaments): $10
  • Big Ceramics (mugs/planters/etc): $25
  • Garden Gnomes: $60
    (sorry, they’re big and heavy! Definitely recommend local pickup here)

Shipping Packaging

It’s what inside that counts!

Some of the packages that we ship out here at handmade curiosities are well… ugly. But we think that ugly can be beautiful because the environment.

Whenever we can we customize old packaging to build our shipping boxes. Unlike some online retailers unnecessarily huge boxes we want ours to fit just right, reducing waste and shipping costs while providing a safe cozy temporary home for your stuff.

We’re proud of our ugly boxes because while it’s what’s inside that counts it would make a difference if we all thought a little about what’s outside too.

International Orders

Currently we are not taking orders directly through the website for customers outside of Canada or the United States. If you are an International Customer and wish to purchase please contact us at
