COMMISSIONS FROM VALAKIA!



Please note! Due to my life situation the delivery may take several weeks.

Examples of my work on my instagram: @varjanvalakia



Hobby horses are completely hand crafted. I draw the patterns by myself as well. Ears can be bent back and they are very durable. Mane and details are mostly sewn on; only special eyes are glued with proper glue. Colorings may fade and I do not recommend getting them wet or brushing them.

Prices include the fillings but not the stick or shipping. Shipping fees depend on the destination country.

Minors need a parent's permission to order!



How do I proceed?


1. Ask a permission from your parents.
2. Decide what kind of horse would you like, and search for the reference pictures.
3. Send a commission email.
4. Pay the deposit.
5. After getting the pictures of a finished commission, accept the commission and pay the rest.
6. Wait for the delivery!



How to order


After deciding on the commission, send me an email varja@varjanvalakia@gmail.com. Remember to write your first and last name, shipping address and the details of your commission.

Write at least this information on the email:
- Color of the fabric
- Color, lenght and material of the mane (for example mohair, wool yarn), and also if you've got something special on your mind (maybe a roached mane or extra thick one?)
- Markings and other colorings, dots etc
- Breed and gender
- And of course if there's other wishes (smaller or bigger than usual, equipment...)
- Shipping address: first name, last name, address and a phone number (yours or your parent's! It's needed for the post office).

Reference pictures help a lot with markings and colourings. They are not still required.
Reference pictures can be of real horses or drawings. However I do not make copies of existing hobby horses.

I double-check the materials and tell you the estimated price. I also give you the banking details on the deposit (deposit is 25% of the price). I will start working on your commission when the deposit is paid.

I will send you the pictures of the finished commission via email and also the banking details for the rest of the payment (the rest is 75% of the price + shipping).
You can also decide to pay the whole commission first.
I will ship the horse as soon as possible when the payment is on my account. I will provide you a tracking code for the package.



Payment


Payment is accepted only via bank tranfer.

Deposit is 25% of the price. After the commission is finished, the rest of the price is paid (75% + shipping).
The deposit will be refunded only if the customer is not happy with the product and it can not be customized enough.
I use deposit to confirm that each of my unique products are going to real owners and loving homes.




In a nutshell:
- Hobby horses are carefully hand crafted and unique, made to fit customer's wishes.
- Payment only via bank transfer, in two parts; deposit and the rest.
- Hobby horses are shipped with the fillings and without the stick, if not otherwise agreed.
- You can not cancel your order after paying the deposit.

Don't be afraid to ask about the fabric and mane colors! I can also get some more shades to exactly fit Your commission.
