Welcome to Odds & Soxlets my small handmade business run from my home studio in north Dorset (UK). As an Artist, Illustrator and creative designer I have a passion for all things handmade. I love to design and make a variety of unique handmade products and I also supply a range of specialist toy making supplies including rattle disc, squeakers, jingle columns and crinkle material.
Ready Made Products – Handmade Toys
Details will always be advertised in advance over on my social media pages of any handmade toys coming up for sale. These will usually be for sale during my market weekends either via my Etsy shop on a first come first serve basis, via Ballot on Facebook, Auction via my Ebay shop or a combination of all these methods. Once one of these products has been purchased or won payment will be required either immediately or within a 24 hour period. All ready made products will be collected by courier within 1-3 workings days of placing your order (unless otherwise notified via email)
Order Slots – Handmade Toys
At the start of each month order slots will be available via my Etsy shop. These slots will be limited and will be available 1 month in advance to the toy being made. Slots will be advertised on my social media pages in advance for a set time and date. Once the slots become live they will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Payment will be required in full at the time of ordering. You will be required to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org once your order has been placed to discuss order details. Once an order has been commenced you will be notified by email/social media and kept up to date with your orders progress along the way. Orders will be made during the selected months slot and posted out to you by courier once completed.
Toy Noise Inserts
All of my current stock of toy noise inserts will be posted out within 3-5 working days unless otherwise notified via email.
Memory Makes – Order Slots
Order slots for my memory makes will be released at the start of each month 2 months in advance of the order being started for my memory makes over in my Etsy shop. These spaces will be offered for sale on a first come first serve basis and will require full payment at the time of purchasing. Each memory make must be predominately made from pre-worn clothing provided by each customer and can not be made out of fabrics used for my handmade toys. Each is truly unique and may differ in appearance depending upon the clothing used to create it. Each memory make takes approx. 4-6 items of baby clothing such as baby vests, sleepsuits, t-shirts and trousers, dresses and so forth to make each keepsake. Each one is approx. 12-14″ tall and are combined with 100% felt features and stuffed with carded polyester fibre fill.
Any complete unused items of clothing will be returned to you along with your finished make however any other off cuts will be discarded unless otherwise requested. Any larger off cuts will be kept for a period of one month after your memory make has been completed encase you wish to have them returned. Please note these returns will be subject to a courier cost of £3.30 unless arranged prior to your make being completed. After one month these off cuts will also be discarded.
As my memory makes are bespoke they are not covered by our cancellations and return policy unless they arrive damaged or are faulty upon delivery.
