GardenofFrancis' Shop Policies
Welcome to Garden of Francis where we strive to live out the ways of St. Francis, as exemplified in the meaningful work of Dr. Maria Montessori.
We strive for modesty and simplicity, utilizing the work of our own hands and the use of as many all-natural materials as possible.
~~~So why the name "Garden of Francis"?~~~
St. Francis' life is a model of simplicity and purity; those saints who followed him are said to be in his garden. St. Francis loved, respected and cared for all of God's creation - every thing that God gave us as a *gift*.
Our hope is that our home lives can follow this model of grace and we strive to keep our business flowing from that same grace.
We accept all forms of payment allowed by Etsy (except not yet set up to take payments directly through Etsy - please select Paypal or check/money order). If there is a payment issue, we will work with you on it - but please don't fall out of communication!
Indiana residents pay 7% sales tax.
All of our packages are sent First Class or Priority USPS mail. Almost all items ship free to the United States.
Almost everything we offer is made upon order - so that we can readily customize whatever details you like. Shipping time therefore can be anywhere from 3 days to 4 weeks after you place your order. Please inquire for more details if needed.
Our Artfire and Etsy sales use recycled and upcycled packaging as much as possible - this helps to fulfill our goals of using our financial and environmental resources wisely as well providing a good example of this stewardship for the children in my life :)
Refunds and Exchanges
We strive to meet the needs of your family. If something is amiss, please give us the opportunity to work it out with you.
Returns and exchanges are gladly accepted; any custom-made orders that cannot easily be re-sold will be refunded at 50%. All other returns are refunded 100% or replaced at your discretion, upon return of the original item.
