About

We start with wood. We reach for a ruler and a saw. We sand by hand. We paint. We add fabric, dry erase, or chalkboard. The result is one of a kind.

We are John and Jane, bride and groom, and the heart and hands behind Elegance Farm. Using our original design, we hand build each solid hardwood framed magnetic bulletin board--one at a time--from our NJ farmhouse. John enjoys using hand tools instead of power tools whenever he can. We use locally milled US-grown lumber, US steel from the fabricator in our town, and Made in the USA fabric when possible.

Although we both have science degrees (John was happy working as a research chemist and Jane as a science editor for children's books), we have always loved creating things with our hands. Cabinets, jewelry, quilts, and gardens . . . they have all emerged from our labors of love. Then, what started as a simple request from our niece Mary blossomed into our business. We "quit our day jobs" in spring 2012 and now happily run our shop full time!

We have been featured by Real Simple magazine and HGTV. Our boards grace the walls of Microsoft headquarters and the Mayo Children's Hospital as well as hotels, schools, and corporate conference rooms. But the work we feel most fortunate to create are the pieces for special customers throughout the world, such as the family adopting two daughters from Africa who wanted a message board to hang family photos, welcoming the girls to their new home. Or the daughter in England who bought one for her mum in a nursing home. She could no longer use pushpins because of her shaky hands but wanted a place to display her cards and letters from friends. The list goes on and on. It is what makes this job so rewarding and what makes us pop out of bed in the morning, excited to start our day.

We enjoy supporting our local lumberyard, steel fabricator, and fabric stores. We scour local estate sales for vintage buttons to make our magnets. We are becoming a thread in our local economy. We grow many of our own vegetables and share them with our family and neighbors. The latest addition: a chicken coop with four egg-laying, entertaining chickens! It feels good. And because of our wonderful customers, who decide to support handmade, we are able to work and live this way. Thank you, and we look forward to creating many new pieces for you in the future.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS (especially EU buyers): Please note that items may be held for additional import/VAT fees in your country of residence. These fees are separate from your purchase with us, and it is your responsibility to pay them. You can learn more here: http://www.dutycalculator.com/country-guides/

Refunds and Exchanges
We stand behind the quality of our work and want you to be delighted with your purchase! Please contact us with any concerns or questions.

All our items are shipped insured. If your item arrives damaged, please immediately report it to us, with photographs of the damage so that a claim may be filed. We will arrange replacement as soon as you have done this! Please save the packaging material and box (the shipping company may want to see it) so you can show the condition of your delivery.

If you are not satisfied with the quality of your purchase, we accept refunds or exchanges, minus original and additional shipping costs, within 7 days. But due to the fragile nature of the items and difficulty shipping them, we do NOT accept returns based on a simple change of mind or if you misread the size or color of the listing you purchased. Custom sizes and colors are not returnable. Unless we made a mistake with the order, the purchaser is responsible for return shipping costs. We will process your refund as soon as we receive your returned item, in new, unused condition. We highly recommend you carefully repackage your return item and insure your return shipping package; we cannot refund you if the item arrives damaged or broken.

Custom items or specially requested colors and fabrics are not returnable. If you are unsure about a fabric color, please ask us to send you a swatch so that you can be sure it works for you before your purchase. For paint colors, please check your local Benjamin Moore paint retailer to be sure the paint color you choose is to your liking.

If a package is returned to us because of a mistake made by the purchaser (incorrect address, unclaimed package, etc.), the purchaser is responsible for paying re-shipping charges. We can re-ship your item to you, but you will need to pay for shipping charges again.
