Save time and send your phone number immediately when you order. Holidays will slow delivery, but I'll get your order out as quickly as possible.
Let's talk NICHOS! I will fill one large box of nichos, (small ,medium and large) for you to have fun with! There will be at least 10 large nichos, the rest a mix of medium and small.
Nichos are used as altars, shrines, and picture frames. They are nice as they come, but add paint, jewels, ribbons, 3-D, collage, original or found items, and they are glorious works of art.
This order is for the serious nicho artist! You will have at least 10 different styles to work with. The pictures with this listing do not represent your exact order, but are an honest representation of what I buy, and you will undoubtedly find some of these in your order.
Convo me with preferences such as "I love hearts!" "I don't want any xxxxx", or whatever, so I can get you exactly what you want! I am your personal Mexican Nicho Shopper. I choose from the product that is available at the time of your order, and I try to get it as close to what you want as humanly possible. If you want all the hearts I can find, I'll do it. If what you want is not readily available but easy for me to order, I will, but if it is not one of the regular nichos they make, I may not be able to really customize.
Usually, US orders are delivered 8-12 days from when I take your order to be shipped.
Please note, I do not make money on the shipping. I have to estimate the best I can. If I over charge, you will get a refund. If it is much more than I estimated, I will give you the option of getting your money all back, or paying the rest of the shipping.
Please make sure to give me your phone number and email address with the order, as DHL and UPS like to have them when they deliver.
I use a company that ships with DHL or UPS. They ship so much that they get cheaper prices than if I go directly to DHL myself (unless we are shipping outside the contiguous US States). I cannot guarantee the time of delivery, but most are delivered within 8-14 days of my drop off at the shipping company. I can usually get your small order to them within 3 days of your order and payment. Larger orders may require waiting for the craftspeople to make them.
I like to post my travel times in a couple of places. Here's what is coming up and will represent a delay in shipping:
I will not be able to ship any nichos from May 15, 2018-Aug 1. Please go to MexicanArtandDesign here on Etsy, and ask Kristopher to put together an order that suits your needs. I am changing my line to wearable Mexican art. I'll take a certain amount of these items with me, and if you purchase in June, I may be able to ship from the US, and if so, it will be free.
I'll keep the shop open and will answer convos etc during these times as I can, but I will be traveling, so may not be as fast as usual. Any orders exceeding what I have with me during my travels will be purchased and shipped as quickly as possible after my return from my trip. For clothing, the wait can be rather long.
PayPal only, at time of order. There are no sales taxes. If your country or state charges a duty tax, it is your responsibility. (We have not been aware of this happening as yet because, apparently craft items are included in NAFTA, and you can buy quite a lot without duty)
Returns & exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Additional return information
Please only order if you are sure you want the product. I understand that in the EU, a seller may have to allow returns by law. This would be very difficult from Mexico, so here is what I must say...If you return an item it will be entirely at your expense, and there will be a return fee equaling the shipping charges I paid to send it too you. So if the items returned are in perfect shape when I get them back, I'll return the cost of the items but not the shipping.
Also, if you want the package to be insured by me, you must state that the same day you order, and you must pay the insurance to my PayPal account when I tell you how much it costs. If you do not pay the insurance, then it will not be insured, and any damage will be un-covered by me. NOW, let me say that so far, in several years of shipping, I have not had any damaged goods. I find DHL an excellent, if expensive international shipper in Australia and the USA. I don't have experience with all countries.
With hand crafted items like I sell, items shown in the photos will be representative of the type of 'look' you can expect, but will not necessarily be exactly the same as the product you receive. This is especially true of beaded jewelry. If you are especially fond of a particular style, I will do my best to make sure you get that style. If you love or hate particular colors, you may tell me, but the craftspeople do their best work when they have the freedom to do their work the way they like. So know that I can only get custom work for you on a limited basis.
