Details

The Sitting Cat Puzzle is 9 inches tall and 7 inches wide. This kitty is eagerly awaiting her new home.

This item will be listed as 1 or 2 available. If you need more of this item, please convo us and we be glad to fill your order. We are running into a storage problem in trying to keep at least 5 of each item in stock, so our slower items, or items that do not usually sell in multiples are going to be listed as only 1 or 2 available and Ron will cut them as needed. It may take a little longer to ship this item if it is not in stock and Ron has to cut it, but usually not more than a day.

All puzzles are cut from 1x8 pine (3/4 inch by 7 ¼ inch) stock. They are lightly sanded, but not varnished or painted, in other words, unfinished. All puzzles are self-standing and have interlocking pieces. They are cut on a bandsaw which gives the pieces a looser fit and room to paint them, if you wish. The photos are taken with the puzzles standing, but they will also lay flat. Some puzzles have smaller pieces than others, some have more pieces than others. Puzzle may not be exactly as pictured, the wood grain may be different.

Any of our puzzles may also be custom ordered as a solid cut out without the puzzle cuts. Price and shipping are the same.

Puzzles are not recommended for children 3 years of age and under, or for children who insist on putting everything in their mouths. Remember, if the object can pass through a toilet paper roller, your child could swallow it! KNOW YOUR CHILD AND BUY ACCORDINGLY!

The shipping price shown for this puzzle in the USA is for First Class Mail with delivery in 2 to 5 business days from mailing. Puzzles are shipped in a padded envelope.

We will be glad to ship Internationally, but, due to the high cost of shipping and the extra processing fees we are charged, we can no longer ship small orders. We will need a combined order of at least $20.00 USD before it becomes even a little practical to ship outside the USA. Please contact us for more information on this or see Policies.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION..........PLEASE READ!!

Our pine cutout items are designed and copyrighted by me (Phyllis). They are free hand drawings and will not be the same side to side. I feel this gives them more character and individualism. The items are then hand cut one at a time by Ron with his band saw. They are lightly sanded. All this means that no two will be exactly alike. Pieces of stackers and puzzles are not interchangeable. Pieces of stackers and puzzles must be all "right" side up to fit together properly. If a piece is flipped over, it won't fit! This makes the stacker more challenging and less boring over time. If this is an issue for your young ones, we suggest that one side be painted in dark colors and the other side in light colors. For instance, a rainbow could be primary colors on one side and pastel colors on the other. Due to differences in printers, hand cutting and sanding, the drawing GUIDES provided for our cutouts are never going to fit exactly. They are merely GUIDES to help you with details as you finish your cutout!

Our hand cut items are cut from pine grown in the USA and occasionally Canada. The lumber is marked KDHT which means it is KILN DRIED (to reduce the moisture content) and HEAT TREATED (pasteurized, heated to partial sterilization to kill bugs and bacteria). Our items are sold UNFINISHED. Although Ron lightly sands our hand cut items, there could still be rough spots, sharp edges, or even a few splinters. It is up to you to finish sanding the items to your liking before applying any paint or finish. We don't recommend any one finish over another. It is up to you to choose the type of finish you prefer and read the labels to be sure it is child safe!

WARNING!!!
We do not recommend any of our products for children under 3 years of age. Small pieces can be a choking hazard so if your child (or pet) is still taste testing everything, use common sense when purchasing. You know your child best; buy wisely! Remember, anything that can pass through a toilet paper roller is a choking hazard!

PLEASE READ!!!
Information on COMBINED SHIPPING can be found in our POLICIES. Look for the POLICIES AND SHIPPING tab under the photos to the right! Most questions will be answered there. Policies are broken down into sections so you don't have to read everything to find what you are looking for.

This is the sweetest rainbow stacker! Got it for my sister in law for her rainbow baby. I painted it with watered down acrylics so you can see the wood grain. I sealed it with non-toxic satin poly. I kept one for my own kids. They love it too! Great prices, I'll be back!

Shipping

Shipping from United States
Ready to ship in
1 - 3 business days
New shipping increases on Jan. 22, 2017. Small parcels will get a bit of a break from last years big hit. US will pay the same for 1 oz. up to 5 oz. and then 5 oz. up to 9 oz. instead of the 1 oz. to 9 oz. at the same price of last year. First Class USA will still extend up to 15.999 oz (commercial) instead of stopping at 13 oz so that is good. Priority Mail USA is also increasing in price with other changes in packages too.

International Shipping will not be changing (yet). First Class from 1 oz up to 9 oz will be the same price so your smaller packages will take the biggest hit. There are only 4 weight categories now in First Class International instead of the 17 we had before between 1 ounce and 4 pounds. Check with us if you want to order more to fill your box up to the weight limit in each category. Indemnity insurance on Priority packages is no more. Instead there will be free insurance for items valued up to $200 shipped Priority International which may work out better for all. You can still purchase insurance if you need more coverage.

I am doing my best to get the shipping right, but there will be glitches. We will refund any overpayment as usual. USA Priority Mail shipping prices are based on shipping to Zone 8, so if you live closer to Michigan your shipping will be less than it shows on the listings. Hope this helps! Shipping is always a nightmare!!


Welcome to the nightmare that is shipping! OK, here is what we do to try and bring you the lowest price and the best service. In the USA we use USPS (United States Postal Service) because we can get pickup at the mailbox or door which saves us a 14 mile round trip to the nearest Post Office. (We don't have the volume in large boxes to have UPS, Fed Ex, etc. stop by.) We can pay for postage, print shipping labels and packing slips on line through ETSY as the orders come in. Etsy now has a "processing" time of 24 to 48 hours before funds are available to us for shipping, so this will slow things down a bit. No more same day shipping, but we can usually manage next day shipping.

We carry a large variety of items in our shop that come in all shapes and sizes. Keeping a large supply of boxes in all sizes is a storage nightmare. USPS carries a good range of box sizes that they will send us free of charge, folded flat. The drawback is, they are for Priority Mail only! Sigh..........

A padded envelope or small parcel weighing under 16 oz. can be shipped first class mail anywhere in the USA for the same by the ounce fee. So we do, usually. (We do add about $2.00 handling fee on padded envelopes to help cover the cost of the envelopes.) The exceptions are light weight things that fit just right in those lovely little Priority Mail boxes that the Post Office furnishes! When the weight is over 15.999 oz., we ship Priority Mail. This includes the Flat Rates and Regional Rates. I do prefer to send vintage breakables by Priority on the theory that the faster it goes and the less handling it receives along the way the less chance of breakage there is!

Here is the way we figure shipping fees on items over a pound. We take the weight and size of the parcel and use the shipping cost to the West Coast. That is about the highest shipping rates for us! We charge retail and the post office gives us a small discount for paying on line which helps us pay for packing materials. The difference between Retail and our discounted price must be at least $1.50 or we will charge the difference as a handling fee. Again, want the actual shipping rate to your address? E-mail/convo us and we'll give you that rate on orders over 16 oz. Please do that BEFORE checking out however, so we can do a custom order for you!

COMBINED ORDERS: If you are ordering several items at once, contact us for the actural shipping/insurance fee BEFORE you check out. We can box up the items and give you a combined shipping rate to your address that could be a lot less expensive than our "guesstiment" listed on the site!

We always combine shipping where we can. We also use Flat Rate and Regional Rates where we can if it is cheaper. However, since we have such a wide variety of items all with different weights and size issues, it is impossible to show combined shipping prices on our listings! It just does not work for us.

We will refund, thru ETSY, shipping that is overpaid by $2.00 or more. So, if you would rather just order from the listing in the shop, you will still pay only the proper amount of shipping.

INSURANCE: We insist on insurance on all breakable Vintage items. We also insist on insurance on any vintage item or combination of vintage items shipped together with a combined value of over $50.00. If you want insurance on any other item, just let us know and we will add the insurance fee to the invoice. If insurance is required we will make a note of it in the item description and add it to the shipping fees.

USPS is now offering insurance on items up to $50.00 in total value shipped Priority Mail free of charge in the USA.

Insurance is always a good idea for orders over $50.00.

DELIVERY CONFIRMATION: We include Delivery Confirmation on all orders in the USA. Tracking is also included in shipments within the USA.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS have tracking available on Priority International only. Some countries are now offering tracking on First Class parcels, but most do not. These countries are now offering tracking on First Class parcels as well as Priority packages: Canada, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore, Spain and Switzerland.

PACKING MATERIALS: We use padded envelopes, usually bubble wrap, for flat things like puzzles. We use USPS Priority Mail boxes which are made of recycled materials and we scrounge used boxes from local stores. For inside cushioning we use newspaper, previously used packing peanuts, bubble wrap (some new, some used). We collect used packing materials from a number of local stores and factories. It saves us, and you, money and the businesses don't have to pay to have someone haul old packing materials away. It's a win-win situation!

LOCAL PICKUP: If you live close by and want to pick up your items, that's fine with us. Just let us know what you want ahead of time so we can have it ready for you. Just remember.....we do not have a store or even an organized warehouse, nor regular hours. You cannot just drop in and shop!! We really don't encourage "shoppers" at our home. Even I can't find items in the back room! Ron is the only one who knows where things are......sort of. You really need to shop on-line to see what is available. Since we live out in the country, a meeting in Traverse City could be arranged on our day in town if you prefer. We won't deliver to your door, but we don't mind meeting you someplace we are going anyway!

GIFT SHIPPING: We will ship to a "Giftee's" address if explanations are made and instructions are clear as to where the item is to be shipped. Please don't just give a different name and address as a shipping address that doesn't match your Etsy name and address. Now that would be very confusing for me.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I am afraid we will no longer be able to process International Orders that are less than $20.00 USD total item price. If you want several items that will bring the total item price up to at least $20.00 USD, we can still do that. It is the small, less expensive items that are causing a problem. Shipping is very high and does not favor these lighter weight, less expensive items. There are new fees connected with the new Etsy Payments plan that do not favor International orders like these either. For example:

On an Item listing at $3.50 with a shipping weight of 3 ounces (about $15.00 to ship):
Listing fee (for 4 months or until an item is sold).......$ .20 USD
Transaction Fee of 3.5% of Item Total.......................$ .1225 USD
Processing Fee of 3% + $ .25 USD on Total Sale
Price (Item total and shipping). In this sample
that would be $18.50 USD total..............................$ .8050 USD
Currency Conversion Fee of 2.5% of total sale price..$ .4625 USD

Total in fees for us on this $3.50 item are $1.59. Now add in the cost of materials, packaging and wages; and suddenly we are losing money!

This has been a problem since the last International shipping increases and we feel it is time we have to do something about it. We can't really raise the price of our items to cover this just because International Shipping is expensive, so this is the best alternative we can come up with at this time.

We have included rates on some (over $20.00) items to a growing list of countries and will gladly ship to other places. We will ship to most places if the country permits the item. The buyer is responsible for all custom fees, taxes and any other surprises that might pop up. Please contact us for shipping rates before you buy if your country is not on our shipping list. We will be glad to put the item in the "backroom" for you until we get things figured out. We will then do a custom order for you with the right shipping price on the listing.

We can now print out Custom Forms through Etsy for even First Class International so we can ship International orders out as quickly as domestic mail. However, First Class International will take 6 to 15 business days or more to reach you after we ship. Priority International is 6 to 10 business days. Keep in mind that Esty has a "processing" time of 24 to 48 hours before any money is transferred to our account so we can ship.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We now accept only Etsy Payments.

Please make sure the name and address on your Etsy order matches the name and address on any payment accounts. If they don't, please explain why or fix the problem since it will pop up every time you order something on line. It is for your own protection and mine, so I will question mismatched information!

Buyers from Michigan: We are now charging sales tax on orders in Michigan. The sales tax fee will be added when you pay thru Etsy Payments.

Canceling an order can be a problem because we ship FAST! If you can notify us before we ship, we will gladly cancel the transaction. Otherwise, see refunds and exchanges below.

Returns & exchanges

Please make sure you actually want the item before you make your purchase order! If you have doubts or questions about an item, contact us before ordering. Refunds and exchanges are costly in time and money for all concerned. But, if you must, you must, so here are the policies regarding it.

Items must be returned in the same condition in which they were sent, in the same box or envelope if possible and with the same care in packaging. Contact us immediately if you intend to return somethng. We will not accept returns more than 7 days past when you received the item. EU countries have up to 14 days past when you receive an item to return it.

If you just change your mind and want to return an item, we will refund the price of the item but not the shipping. You pay the shipping to return the item by the same method of shipment. After we receive the item, we will refund the price of the items through ETSY. You MUST contact us within 7 days of receiving your item to get a refund! Or, in the case of EU countries only, 14 days.

If the item you receive is not what you ordered, not as described or otherwise our fault, we will refund shipping both ways as well as refunding the item price with our sincere apologies. Again, the refund is through ETSY. You MUST contact us within 7 days of receiving your item to get a refund!!

If an item was damaged in transit, please notify us and the Post Office within 10 days of receiving the item. If the item was insured, we will help you with the forms you need. If the item was not insured, we will work with you to make it right. Please notifiy us within ten days, longer than this is NOT acceptable. If you send us photos of the damage immediately upon receipt of your items, we will either replace or refund depending on the circumstances.

Damaged items on International orders: Because of the high shipping rates on small items, we can no longer REPLACE broken items. If you send us photos of the damaged items, we will REFUND the cost of the items. If you are a regular customer, we could include a replacement with your next order instead of a refund if you wish. I'm sorry, but it makes no sense to pay a $15.00 shipping fee to replace a $ .50 item.

If an order is not received. There is tracking available on all USA orders so we should be able to track down your order. It may take awhile, but we will do our best. If the order is totally lost and can't be found, we will help you with USPS forms for lost packages. International orders are more difficult to track if sent First Class and could be just slow, some countries now have tracking on First Class parcels. Priority International does have tracking and we will do our best to track your package down. We will help you with any forms you need to help find your package. Once shipping switches from USPS handling to your country's postal service it is more difficult for us to track so you may have to do the tracking from your end.

Please understand , we do not have control over shipped packages once it leaves our hands! Be absolutely sure that your address is correct on both your payment accounts and Etsy. If you have recently changed your address, it may revert back to your old address several times before the new address is accepted on Etsy! Computers can be very stubborn about changes. We have no way of knowing if the address received is correct...........it is the only one we are provided with so that is where your items will be shipped. We cannot be responsible for orders shipped to an incorrect address so double check to be sure it is correct!!

If all tracking and other resources fail on a order not received, we will refund the item price after 60 days, but not the shipping fees. You need to file a claim with your postal service if your package is not received in a timely fashion and tracking is not helping.

Customized orders cannot be returned.

Additional policies

CONTACTING US: The easiest way to contact us is through Etsy's convos. Just look for the "contact seller" button, click on it, and type away. This works just like e-mail but it goes through Etsy so it won't get spammed! If that makes you nervous, you can e-mail us direct at clickclackcol@aol.com, but you might wind up in the spam file. Be sure to put something in the subject line that lets us know you're not spam!!

WHOLESALE, BULK, CONSIGNMENT: We are retired! We no longer do wholesale, bulk or consignment selling! Don't ask and I won't be forced to throw things at you. If you are talking about a smaller quanity, like maybe a dozen of something, we might consider it depending on what it is. It probably won't hurt to ask.........I have a bad shoulder so my aim is not real good. We do not give discounts on "bulk" orders!

CUSTOM ORDERS: see above! Actually, we will do some customizing of our regular items if it is not too involved. There will be a one time $10.00 design fee for simple changes. If you want bigger changes, you can ask, but be prepared to duck! We will NOT do customized design work just for you that we cannot sell to other customers in our shop. It is too time consuming for us and too expensive for you.

CUSTOM CUTS: Ordering custom cuts: If you only want part of a set, the sets are broken down and priced individually so you can do this. Just convo us through Etsy with a detailed list of the items you want. Please list the set Name, then the item ID and name and how many you want of each item. Remember, I cannot see what is in your shopping cart! We will also need a ZIP-CODE (USA) or COUNTRY (outside the USA) in order to figure shipping. Any custom order MUST total at least $3.00 to make shipping/handling practical for both of us!
International orders must be at least $20.00

Unfortunately, we have been having a slight problem with customers ordering custom cuts of certain items (like 20 large mushrooms from the Mushroom/toadstool Set or just one of this and one of that from a number of sets) and then never paying for them. This is time consuming for us in the first place and then almost impossible to re-sell if the customer just walks away. So, we are going to ask for a non-refundable deposit on these orders BEFORE we start cutting with the balance due when we finish and are ready to ship. If you are one of our regular repeat customers, this will not apply to you. We are not happy with this arrangement because we like to trust our customers, but this seems to be a growing problem.

GIFT WRAPPING: At this time we are not offering gift wrapping. We will send an item to a "gift address" and include a note saying who it is from, but not wrapping. I'm just not very good at it and Ron is hopeless!

FEEDBACK: Leaving feedback is important. It lets other buyers know if we are doing a good job or not. So of course we only want positive feedback! If you have a problem with an order, please contact us and let us try to solve the problem BEFORE you leave feedback. We can no longer leave feedback for our customers ! Etsy has removed that option for sellers.

ALLERGY CONCERNS: Etsy said we should let our customers know about our home. OK. We are non-smokers and I don't let anyone else smoke in our house either. That said, we can't guarantee that our vintage items come from non-smoking households. I do wash all the glass, china, and silver before it is sold.

We live in the country and we have pets and poultry. We have several cats and a German Shepard mix dog. That means we also have a rather large dog door so we don't have to play doorman all the time, and that means the cats can bring in just about anything they can haul through that door. Soooooo, we have the occasional wild bird flying around the kitchen, chipmunks and gophers to be rescued and tossed back outside etc., etc. Their latest thing to bring in is nightcrawlers. I think they want Ron to go fishing and bring them some fresh fish. They are just furnishing the bait, doing their part! The chickens (truly free range) only wander in if someone leaves the door open, they haven't figured out the dog door yet. With all this coming and going, pollen does make it's way in to both the house (where I work) and the pole barn (where Ron works). We have 4 large black walnut trees, 2 mulberry trees, an English walnut tree, a mountain ash, a silver maple and lots of lilacs around the house and lots of pines and sugar maple and apple trees across the pasture. Lots of other outside flowering plants and veggie garden stuff in the summer. Oh, and I also have a lot of houseplants. And, since we live in farm country, someone is always plowing something, or spreading something or harvesting something. If you have allergy concerns, please contact us.


There, I think I have finally reached the end of this novel, but if you can think of anything I've missed, please let me know!

CONTACTING US: The easiest way to contact us is through Etsy's convos. Just look for the "contact seller" button, click on it, and type away. This works just like e-mail but it goes through Etsy so it won't get spammed! If that makes you nervous, you can e-mail us direct at clickclackcol@aol.com, but you might wind up in the spam file. Be sure to put something in the subject line that lets us know you're not spam!!

WHOLESALE, BULK, CONSIGNMENT: We are retired! We no longer do wholesale, bulk or consignment selling! Don't ask and I won't be forced to throw things at you. If you are talking about a smaller quanity, like maybe a dozen of something, we might consider it depending on what it is. It probably won't hurt to ask.........I have a bad shoulder so my aim is not real good. We do not give discounts on "bulk" orders!

CUSTOM ORDERS: see above! Actually, we will do some customizing of our regular items if it is not too involved. There will be a one time $10.00 design fee for simple changes. If you want bigger changes, you can ask, but be prepared to duck! We will NOT do customized design work just for you that we cannot sell to other customers in our shop. It is too time consuming for us and too expensive for you.

CUSTOM CUTS: Ordering custom cuts: If you only want part of a set, the sets are broken down and priced individually so you can do this. Just convo us through Etsy with a detailed list of the items you want. Please list the set Name, then the item ID and name and how many you want of each item. Remember, I cannot see what is in your shopping cart! We will also need a ZIP-CODE (USA) or COUNTRY (outside the USA) in order to figure shipping. Any custom order MUST total at least $3.00 to make shipping/handling practical for both of us!
International orders must be at least $20.00

Unfortunately, we have been having a slight problem with customers ordering custom cuts of certain items (like 20 large mushrooms from the Mushroom/toadstool Set or just one of this and one of that from a number of sets) and then never paying for them. This is time consuming for us in the first place and then almost impossible to re-sell if the customer just walks away. So, we are going to ask for a non-refundable deposit on these orders BEFORE we start cutting with the balance due when we finish and are ready to ship. If you are one of our regular repeat customers, this will not apply to you. We are not happy with this arrangement because we like to trust our customers, but this seems to be a growing problem.

GIFT WRAPPING: At this time we are not offering gift wrapping. We will send an item to a "gift address" and include a note saying who it is from, but not wrapping. I'm just not very good at it and Ron is hopeless!

FEEDBACK: Leaving feedback is important. It lets other buyers know if we are doing a good job or not. So of course we only want positive feedback! If you have a problem with an order, please contact us and let us try to solve the problem BEFORE you leave feedback. We can no longer leave feedback for our customers !
