About

It all began as a way to get rid of a bunch of charms....

Just over 4 years ago Glen and I decided to run away from the daily stresses and grind of life and build our dream house on a piece of rural beachfront property in beautiful PEI Canada.

Over the years we had built a successful gift / gourmet food store and a wholesale jewelry business... our kids were away at school and although we were relatively young... the thought was retirement... a slower pace of life!

As we were going through "stuff", we decided to get rid of a number of boxes of charms and beads left over from our wholesale jewelry designs. Etsy seemed like the perfect place.

Fast forward... the stock sold and sold and sold... we bought more and more... and Bohemian Findings was born. When we moved a year later, half the moving truck was charms!

Today we are living on the beach with our two Westies... Sparky insisted on being the company figurehead and Sassy... well she's just a diva with an attitude. We are assisted by some terrific local Moms who pick and pack your orders... they are true gems!

All of us are truly grateful for Etsy and the opportunity it has given us especially in a very rural area where jobs are very hard to come by; and all our wonderful customers...

...and that retirement...on hold for now....

UPDATE 2016
Is this just not the craziest story you have ever heard?

So here we are… 4 years later… still living in beautiful rural PEI. BUT, our shop (thanks to you), has exploded and we ship to all parts of the world… who would have ever thought?

We are still housed in the old elementary school in a town of 310 people – in an area dominated by hard working farmers and fishermen and the best lobster in the world – sorry Maine….!
We now are a team of 16 people working our hardest to fill every order and surpass your expectations.

This is the beauty and potential of Etsy. Creating entrepreneurship and jobs anywhere… and for that, we remain so very grateful and thankful!

…Sparky especially so, as it keeps him in dog biscuits...

I HAVE A LARGE ORDER IN MY CART, AND SHIPPING SEEMS UNREASONABLE. WILL IT REALLY COST THAT MUCH?

I understand... and yes, on larger orders, the shipping calculator and the total is incorrect and usually too high... sadly it penalizes larger orders and multiples.
We always refund your over shipping paid.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SHIP TO THE US? WILL I HAVE TO PAY DUTY FEES?

Although we are in Canada, we take our orders over the border to the post office in Calais Maine 3-5 times a week... and use USPS with tracking in the US.

There are no duty fees or taxes due on delivery.

Once your order clears US customs it will take 3 to 6 working days delivery. The whole process takes 5 to 10 days by first class mail.

I NEED MY ORDER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. DO YOU OFFER SHIPPING UPGRADES?

We always suggest upgrading your shipping if you have a strict deadline.

Our shipping upgrades are available here:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/BohemianFindings/search?search_query=upgrade&order=date_desc&view_type=gallery&ref=shop_search

USPS Priority takes 3-5 working days, and we offer FedEx 2 day and overnight.

For our Canadian clients, we offer expedited (2-7 working days), Xpresspost (1-3 working days) and FedEx 2 day service. Please contact us about FedEx, as it is not available in more rural areas.

We do offer USPS Priority for our international clients. Please contact us for a quote for FedEx international economy (1 week) or priority (2-3 day) delivery.

WHY ARE YOU USING USPS TO SHIP MY ORDER? I LIVE IN CANADA.

We now use USPS to ship smaller packages to provinces west of Ontario - it allows for some tracking, and arrives within 5-12 business days (compared to occasionally taking a month with regular Canada Post).

It may seem like a roundabout process, but it's the most affordable way to ensure you receive your package in a reasonable amount of time.

Larger orders (over $50 USD before shipping costs) will be sent with Canada Post or Fed Ex with tracking within Canada.

DO YOU CARRY ANY COPYRIGHTED CHARMS?

We take great pride in sourcing a huge variety of unusual charms.

That said... we also take copyright infringement very seriously here at Bohemian Findings. We make every attempt to insure that the charms we sell are not in violation of any copyright or trademarked design from any company or artist.

If you see a charm on our page that you feel is a copy of your design, please convo us and we will work with you to remove the charm - not just from our shop - but from the supply source as well.

I AM LOCATED IN THE EU. DO YOUR PRICES INCLUDE VAT?

No. We are not registered to collect VAT. You will be responsible for any associated VAT and handling charges that are levied by your government or postal service.
