Welcome COENOBITA CURIOSITIES (NOW OPEN)

Post by Motörcrab » Wed Mar 18, 2020 10:33 pm

Xenocrab and I have been talking about this a lot and it has also been brought up here by other members! We are pleased to announce our new shop Coenobita Curiosities!

We were graciously given the opportunity to be vendors at Crab Con 2020 several months ago. Our official grand opening will be at Crab Con 2020! Our product line is going to focus on our crabby crafting items. Hemp and Jute climbing ropes, decorated flower pot hides, one of a kind custom backgrounds, loose sheets of crafting mesh. We currently have 13 different colors of mesh. We will also offer a few other crabitat items along with t-shirts as well!

As a pre kick off of Coenobita Curiosities we would like to introduce our first shirt! Yep, You already guessed our "Crab Life" design! The shirts will be a Gildan cotton T and the color will be Kiwi. Sizes will be small through 2XL. Based on quantities ordered we will need to do a run of 25-30 shirts to keep the price around $15 per shirt plus shipping fees. Shipping price to be determined. We really want to keep the total cost with shipping under $20 USD!

Unfortunately with just starting out we will only be able to offer sales in the US until we figure out all the other not so fun details with Etsy.

Currently we are going to take pre-orders on the honor system. If you would like to pre-order a shirt please let us know by commenting quantity and size below. We will take orders until March 27, 2020 then place our order for the shirts. Once we receive the shirts we will make our Etsy shop avaliable to purchase the shirts.

As a bonus we will also include our crabtivating invention, The Molting "camping" Crab Tent Flap! It's a 4" X 2-5/8" reusable, peel and stick decal to cover molting windows in the substrate!

EDIT: Due to Covid-19 concerns and everyone's well being To help prevent the spread we will not order or ship them until this pandemic is under control. We will continue taking orders until we reach our minimum order quantity between 25-30 shirts. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Stay safe!

Let me be the first to sign up for a t-shirt! I would like a size small please.
Yes, I live in Canada....but hopefully some day we will be able to cross the border again and I can have it shipped to my California vacation destination.

Oh my gosh, this is awesome. If I get to go I'll buy the shirt there, because I tried to order one from amazon the other day and my mom just stared me down like I was insane. :lol: Insane or not, I want a crab shirt, and those are perfect! It would be cool if you made some activists ones that people could wear to the boardwalk and stuff!

They are even more popular than I ever thought possible. The first day I put the cubes in, the popcorn was gone before 9pm! Weeks later and they still empty it every night :o Of course the nets are wonderful, I love how neat they look and my crabs are happy climbers too!

Need to get me one of those! It'll do my crabs some good to move around- they haven't really been on the wheel as far as I can tell, they just like to snuggle under it and in the moss pit and sleep! :roll:

I know you can't send anything out now, but I would love a sticker! I'd love a shirt too, but I wear a 3X and I think you said your shirts only go up to 2X. Thanks!!!

We are still taking orders for the T-shirts. We have about a dozen or so, so keep them coming in.

CrabbyLover77 I will see what we can do with possibly getting 3X too.

We have decided to open shop on Etsy. We thought everything was inactive, but we had our first official "unofficial" sale already. We listed our jute climbing nets, flower pot hides, and curiosity cubes for now. We want to start slow with a few items and slowly add as we go.

You had one XL shirt listed.

We are currently on a hold pattern with the shirts for now. We will have to see if we can do a hidden listing on Etsy. You enter a code and it comes up to order. If we can't do something like that we will post here and let everyone know when they are avaliable for purchase.
