This box of 43 pine cones are 4" (+- 1/2") in length. Thus they will run from 3 1/2" to 4 1/2" long. IF YOUR NEEDS DIFFER FROM MY LISTINGS YOU MAY DO THE FOLLOWING:
By clicking on the "Custom Order Button", asking a question, or sending me a message on this page, you can tell me your specific needs for pine cones. Such needs as quantity, mix of sizes, specific lengths or quanity discounts, can easily be fulfilled . The entire transaction will be handled thru Etsy just as if you ordered a standard item. The process works as follows: Convey to me your needs. I will put your order together, price the order including shipping charges, send you pictures of your order along with any other pertinent information. If this all meets with your approval the order will be posted on Etsy as your private order. You will receive an email from Etsy. If you chose to order you may. If you decide not to order that's fine as well. Its your decision.
Our home is surrounded by Georgia Loblolly pine trees. I have collected only the highest quality pine cones and sorted them to approximate size listed above.
They are boxed and shipped as they came from the forest floor.
I place bubble wrap between each layer of cones and make sure they are packaged as securely as possible for safe shipment.
This shipment is shipped USPS Priority mail and insured by the USPS for loss up to $50. Your order will ship the same day or the next business day from when I receive the paid order. Transit time is usually 2 to 3 days.
Standard USPS ground shipping on this size package is a few dollars less. But......it can take over a week to reach you. Plus if you want insurance you have to pay extra which brings the cost close to the Priority rate. Thus I ship USPS Priority.
Orders will ship USPS "Priority Mail" or USPS "Retail Ground" within one business day upon receipt and payment of order. Cost of shipping is calculated at time of check out. Add multiple items into one box to save money on shipping (This can not be done with pine cone orders.) Priority shipments are insured thru the USPS up to $50.00. Retail Ground is not insured.
A shipping notice will be sent via email with a USPS tracking number upon shipment.
Customs and import taxes Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
Secure payment is via Etsy Direct Checkout at time of purchase. This includes Pay-Pal, credit/debit cards & Etsy gift cards.

Additional return information
No exchanges, returns or refunds will be made for iteams made out of wood I find in the forest surrounding my home.
Bread slicing guides may be returned if unused and in original condition. The shipper is responsable for the return freight.
Shipping damage or loss will be covered by USPS shipping insurance.
Why such a hard line policy?
The wood I am using to make each item (this does not apply to Bread slicing guides since they are made of new material) has been laying on the forest floor for many years. It has been subjected to insects, rain, wood decay and green moss. Then baked in the Georgia heat and humidity.
So.......the finished item can and may have cracks, bug holes, wood decay, nicks, marks, green moss and be discolored due to its exposure to nature over the years.
That is why....each wood item I make is so unique and one of a kind. They are different!! That is why you are buying it!!
I cant guarantee natures work. I can only assure you that when I am working on the wood all the skill and ability I have will go into what nature has provided me. My craftsmanship is in every piece I turn.
What happens after the piece is done in the mystery wood shop will be a mystery to all.
PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION OF THE ITEM YOU ARE LOOKING AT CAREFULLY AND STUDY THE PICTURES CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR PURCHASE. Remember what you see in the picture is what you get, minus color variation due to monitors and lighting conditions.
No exchanges, returns or refunds will be made with the excepton of Bread Slicing Guides.
