Shop Policies

I hope you enjoy the selection of handcarved items I have to offer. Each piece is unique even though the pattern may be similar. 

My purpose here is to connect with people and help them to enrich their lives. My customers are individual people, not corporate demographics. 

I am happy to gift wrap your purchase for free. Just let me know.

I am happy to do custom work for lovespoons and decorative spoons. Please see below for more detail.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to contact me via email at


I will send out your purchases within 2 business days after payment clears for most items. For lovespoons that have initials and/or dates carved into them, shipping will occur within 5 business days after payments clear. Orders within the United States will be shipped USPS Priority Mail. 

International orders will be shipped USPS First Class. The buyer will be responsible for any and all customs, tariffs, or VAT fees.


Refunds and exchanges are offered on a case-by-case basis. Please email me if this is something you wish to do.


Everything in my store was handcrafted in a smoke-free environment using only hand tools. All the materials I use are non-toxic. 

Upon request I will carve three initials and a date into the lovespoons at no additional charge. I will accept commissions for custom lovespoons, pricing to be determined on a case-by-case basis. Email me at

Commission quotes are absolutely FREE of charge. After establishing some details about the type of design you want and the type of wood, I will work up a design and send it to you for approval with a price. You may feel free to change or massage the design up to the point I start carving.

Once you have accepted the design and price I will present you with an art commission agreement to sign before I begin work. This agreement will describe the work being done along with a copy of the final design, the payment, payment schedule and a few other items. This document is a protection for both you and me to ensure that we both get what we agreed upon. I require 50% up front before I begin work with the balance due upon completion. 

I require a minimum of four business weeks to complete a single piece, depending on the complexity of the design. More complex designs require longer production times. If you are in a rush, contact me, and we can discuss shortening the time frame. A shorter time frame usually means a higher fee.

I use USPS Priority Mail. Unless otherwise indicated shipping within the continental United States is free.  A typical charge for other destinations is $20 for a large item or $10 for a small item. The shipping charge will be detailed in the commission agreement.

Thank you for your understanding. I truly appreciate your business.
