Shipping & Policies


First of all thank you very much for taking the time to browse through my shop.

If you are looking for heirloom quality, hand made one of a kind items that will last for years, then you have come to the right place. I take much pride in what I do and would proudly display anything I make in my home. Nothing leaves my shop that is not 100% in quality and appearance.

As always if you have any questions please let me know...I am always around.
