There are books with craft projects and instructions inside. They are paperback, 3 are Home Crafts for kids and 1 is Paper Plate Animals which has 18 patterns inside. These are 1987 and one is 1989. Great for teachers, or teachers aids. Or Moms who like to keep the little ones busy. I personally have every little craft item my daughters made me over 30 years ago. They are those little treasures that you cannot get rid of, ever. I offer free shipping on all my items, which makes it a real deal for the buyer.
I prefer to ship USPS priority flat rate when possible. On larger items, often times it is best to ship UPS. Wood is heavy, so the larger the piece, the more it costs to ship. For me, international shipping is not possible at this time. I find it to be really daunting and because I have no control over the Customs of any country, I run the risk of losing the item and so I do not like to ship outside the US. Frankly it is really expensive and costs more than the item.
Payment must be made within 3 days of clicking your little mouse, I have no problem waiting a little longer, just be sure to convo me and let me know when you're able to pay. I do a Farmer's Market on Saturdays and sometimes a piece that is in my shop may sell there, in which case, I have to go in and delete or cancel the sale. If you are going to request a custom order, I will require, starting in September 1, 2009 that you either make full payment, or, you can pay half up front and the other half when finished. I accept Paypal, money orders, or credit card.
Returns & exchanges
If an item is damaged in the shipping process, just convo me, I can determine whether or not it can be repaired, or can just replace it.
