NorthernHarvest's Shop Policies
Paypal Payments are the only form of payment currently accepted at this time here at the shop.
All items shipped to PA addresses are required to pay state sales tax of 6%.
No sales will be cancelled after payment has been received.
Regarding Payment Plans: Non-payment and extreme delays between payments from several purchasers in the past have left a sour taste in my mouth when it comes to payment plans. At this time, I prefer that all items be paid for in-full upon purchasing. Please note that paypal allows the use of credit cards which is beneficial and a worthwhile consideration especially for those higher price-point items found in the shop! If a reasonable payment plan is the absolute only option for you, please contact me and we'll see what we can do to help you obtain your special critter. :)
Please note that due to extremely stringent USA Federal Laws regarding the exporting of wildlife, I CAN ONLY SELL AND SHIP MY WILDLIFE CREATIONS WITHIN THE UNITED STATES ONLY. I do not have the proper export permits to ship outside of my country. I sincerely apologize to those wonderful folks overseas and across the border that have shown interest in my work but I can only sell and ship to addresses within the United States. Absolutely NO Exceptions will be made.
Additionally, please note that even within the United States, each state has its own wildlife regulations regarding the purchasing and possession of wildlife and their related parts. YOU are responsible for checking and following your current state's laws before you purchase one of my items. While it is legal for me to sell an item, it may not be legal for you to buy it. Keep in mind also that state and federal laws often change and while I do my best to keep up-to-date with as many state laws as possible, I simply cannot keep track of them all. It is up to you to know if you are allowed to possess certain species and their related parts in your state. In addition, you will also be responsible for any fines, fees, or legal ramifications associated with your purchase if you do not check or follow your current state laws. I will not knowingly sell or ship out a species that is not allowed to be possessed in a particular state that prohibits that species.
All items purchased are shipped with a Tracking Number so you can track your item's journey to you! Each item is carefully packed and padded to ensure a safe trip and packages are insured against postal loss.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final, I do not offer refunds. That said, if you do have any concerns with your critter creation upon receiving it, please send me an email immediately and I'll try my best to make it right.
Additional Policies and FAQs
Soft Sculpture Mounts are not toys and should not be treated as such. Often times they have sharp claws and parts and pieces that may be pulled off and eaten by small children. They are not recommended for children under the age of 12.
CARE OF WORK:
You are responsible for caring for, maintaining, and preserving the wildlife creation you purchase. Once it has arrived and is in your care, I cannot be held responsible for any damage thereafter that is a result of poor care or rough handling of the item.
While I do my best to make each item as sturdy and possible, taxidermy in itself is rather delicate and requires care and gentle handling.
Keep soft sculpture mounts and other taxidermy mounts and items away from wetness, excessive heat and light, and insects and other pests. Taxidermy thrives best in a climate-controlled environment. It is also wise to keep pets away from or at the very least supervise them around your new wildlife creation to avoid your pet damaging your critter.
To clean, wipe with a dry (or VERY SLIGHTLY damp), soft cloth. Avoid touching or handling painted areas (face, toes, etc.) as the paint in these areas can be scuffed off with improper handling.
Soft Sculpture Mounts are meant to be petted and held, but excessive handling may cause the leather to fatigue quicker than normal (all leather degrades over time), please be aware of this while interacting with your critter and treat it with utmost respect and care.
I cannot be held responsible for any breakages, all due care is taken to use the highest quality, professional materials.
With proper care, respect, and handling, you're special wildlife creation can last a lifetime!
