We host LIVE Sales frequently on our Instagram page, but we do not currently have set days & times. You can find the date for the next scheduled LIVE posted across the top banner of the site.
By making a purchase (big or small!) with us, you are acknowledging & agreeing to ALL policies as stated below.
2021 Important Info:
We have no control over USPS transit times, which may be adversely affected due to increased USPS package volume & lack of USPS staffing due to COVID-19.
Out of caution for our family & the community, we currently ship orders ONE DAY A WEEK due to current COVID-19 precautions. We appreciate your patience, cooperation & understanding. Updated January 2021.
HOW TO ATTEND OUR LIVE SALES: Download the Instagram app for iPhone or Android. Create a free account and follow @thehumblecrystal & @humblecrystallive. Open the app at the date/time we are set to go live (check banner above). Head to our profile @thehumblecrystal & @humblecrystallive and tap our Raccoon Logo.
Also, you can simply open the Instagram app when we begin our LIVE stream, and a glowing Humble Crystal raccoon logo will be displayed front and center along the top banner of your Instagram app- just tap that Raccoon to join the LIVE. Be sure to turn on post notifications so you never miss us!
HOW TO CLAIM ITEMS: To claim an item, comment the specific emoji or phrase noted in the PINNED caption, accompanied by the letter of the crystal you are claiming.
When you claim a crystal in our LIVE Sale, you are committing to buy the piece. Please be sure you actually want the crystal you are claiming before commenting. The first comment to come across our screen is the one that gets the item. ALL claims are final and are considered a commitment to purchase. We do not allow put-backs or swaps at any time during or after the LIVE.
INSTAGRAM TIP: If your claim comment(s) seems to be getting blocked, please type something else (a longer phrase, etc) to try and free up your account's commenting privilege. Sometimes Instagram blocks certain actions to "protect the community"- in this case, because it thinks the phrase you are submitting is potential spam.
HOW TO PAY/LIVE SALE INVOICE POLICY:
We require that all new customers communicate via Instagram DM immediately upon leaving our LIVE Sale. All payments are due within 24 hours of being sent unless otherwise specifically noted (either in the LIVE Sale or via DM) by Alex. Refer to the bottom of your listing for any additional details.
