Heyy, Hi, Hello!! <3

Jess here, maker & big cheese behind Poorwill (formally, Aegis Handcraft); welcome to my online shop!
Please look around, save, share, shop, or hang out; whatever it may be, know I hella appreciate you & your time!
I handcraft all sorts of goodies from my workshop in Alameda, CA. I'm a queer, late-identified Autistic, pop-culture lovin', film/tv binger, armchair sociologist, law & beauty school dropout, baby & postnatal personal assistant & all sorts of special interests enthusiast that loves to make & create all kinds of art & ways to connect with others.
If & when I'm not making and creating things, I enjoy hanging out with my Boo and loved ones and cuddling with my gatos, George & Frank.
Thank you for visiting my space!

Shipping, Warranty & Returns

Hey there! I'm so excited you're interested in getting some Poorwill handcrafted goods. Here is some noteworthy information before you place your order:

Firstly, I cannot accept returns or issue refunds due to Poorwill goods' individual and distinctive craftsmanship. So please double-check your order before you finalize it. But don't worry, if you think you've made a mistake, let me know immediately, and I'll do my best to help you.

Also, I carefully inspect each piece before sending it out to you. I stand by my work with a lifetime warranty, encouraging and accepting repairs, alteration, and mending commissions. If you find any defects in your item, contact me with your name, contact information, photos, and a description of the problem at, and I'll make sure to make it right.

Finally, all Poorwill goods are slow-made, so it may take some time to produce and ship them to you. But don't worry; all orders over $50 are eligible for free shipping via USPS domestic standard mail unless otherwise specified. And for international orders, be aware that you may experience some customs fees, but I'm not responsible for those charges. Check with your country's customs duty fee information for cost rates.

Thanks for choosing Poorwill, and let me know if you have any questions!
