About

We operate a small roadside farm market in Lancaster county, PA.

Since August 2012, my husband and I own and operate a small farm market in Lancaster County, PA. We grow and sell strawberries and other locally grown fruits, vegetables and plants. We also grow lots of cut flowers during the summer months. I have always enjoyed making crafts and make lots of bows and Christmas ornaments for sale during the Christmas season. My Etsy shop features some hand made items as well as some craft supplies. Other greenhouse supplies can be found in my EBay store.

Frequently asked questions
Which size bow do I need?

Small bows measure 5-6" across and are ideal for wreaths under 16" diameter.
Medium bows measures 7-8" across and are ideal for wreaths 16-20" diameter.
Large Bows measures 10" across and are ideal for wreaths 22-24" across. This is the standard size of most Christmas door wreath.
Extra Large Bows measure 12" across and are ideal for wreaths 26 - 36" diameter.
Jumbo bows measure 16" across and are for wreaths 36"-48" diameter.

Can you make a bow in a different size?

Sometimes. Small bows are made with a 1.5" ribbon and jumbo bows with a 4" wide ribbon. Medium, large and extra-large bows are made with a 2.5" wide ribbon. Therefore, if the bow you are looking at is made with 2.5" ribbon, then I can make different size bows for you. Please send me a custom order request.

Will my bows be crushed or damaged in shipment?

We do our best to pack the bows so they travel well. However, it is possible they may get jostled around a bit in transport and not look quite as good as they could. Most of the bows are made with wired ribbon and are easy to reshape if needed after you receive them.

Why do you sell bows in sets rather than individually?

We sell the bows in sets to fit best in the packing boxes we use for shipment. Each set has a box it fits in nicely and usually travels well to it's destination. If you need a different number of bows, we will try to work with you to fit them into the best packaging.

How long will it take to receive my bows?

All the bows (except a few at Christmas) are made to order after you place an order. Most of the year, I can make the bows and ship them within 1-3 days so you have them about 1 week after you place your order.

HOWEVER, during the very bust Christmas season of mid-October to early December, it will likely take 7-10 days to make the bows and about 2 weeks after you place your order to receive them. I try to keep the delivery estimate accurate here on Etsy. If possible, try to place your order early in the Christmas season.

Should I buy wired or unwired bows?

Most of the bows we sell are made from wire-edged ribbon. The wired ribbon allows the bows to more easily hold their shape and to be re-shaped if needed after shipping, storage or adverse weather conditions. However, some velvet Christmas ribbon is made from a stiff polypropylene ribbon that does not have a wired edge. This ribbon does very well outdoors but cannot be reshaped as nicely as the similar (but slightly more expensive) wired ribbon.

How many seasons can I expect to get from my bows?

This depends greatly on the location where you display your bows as well as the type of ribbon they are made from. Bows displayed indoors should last almost indefinitely. Bows displayed in a protected outdoor area such as a porch will probably last 3-5 seasons or more especialy if they are wired and can be reshaped for the next season. Velvet bows displayed outdoors in the weather (like on windows, fences, etc.) will likely last 2-5 seasons depending on the weather in any given year. In general, the velvet type bows are made from tougher ribbon and are designed for outdoor use. The other types of ribbon will de best either inddors or in a protected spot.
