I. ABOUT US
Welcome to Pezzel.com! The Pezzel.com website is owned and operated by DBD Designs LLC. The goal of this website is to provide a retail outlet for Pezzel products (the “Products”). We at DBD Designs, LLC (“Pezzel”) hand crochet each Flippie Slippie™ with care and appreciate that you selected us for your footwear comfort. We will help you select a yarn color to compliment the Flippie Slippie™ you have chosen should you need assistance. We hope you enjoy wearing the Flippie Slippie™ inside your home or room as well as outside. They are designed as 2 shoes in 1: a slipper and a flip flop. Once you put on your Flippie Slippie™, you will immediately feel your toes tingle with the warm and delicate sensation of the soft acrylic yarn YOU have selected. Relax and put your feet up!
We have established this Store Policy so that you will know what you can expect from us, and what we expect from you, in order to help ensure that your shopping experience is the best it can be.
