I ordered this item as a gift. It was promptly shipped and delivered. The packaging was very professional and protected the wax ornament from any damage. I have purchased wax ornaments in the past from others and in comparison, I am very happy with the outstanding quality, size and natural finish of this wax ornament. I will definitely make another purchase from John at Garden Gate Design!

About

I use my collection of antique chocolate molds and molds I have created to make candles, wax figurines and chalkware.

I have always enjoyed working with my hands to make things. Growing up in Virginia as a teenager I bought a kit to build a canoe, well that was biting off a little to much and I was not to successful. In my early adult years my career took front seat and my creativity was only used to duplicate what I saw in magazines primarily gardening. As a result, I have one of the more beautiful yards in my community. In the 90's I discovered rug hooking and continue to pursue that endeavor with some success, exhibiting, in various venues on the east coast, Midwest and even in Tokyo Japan. I have been published in Rug Hooking magazine, the Baltimore Sun newspaper, and a book Hooked on Rugs by Jessie Turbayne.

Since retiring I have started to collect antique chocolate and ice cream molds and have decided to use those molds to created candles, wax figurines and chalkware additionally I have expanded that to included molds that I have created myself.

My creativity continues to grow with an interest in pottery which I am now selling here on Etsy and soon to offer some of my rug hooking's and of course continue to grow my beeswax and chalkware offerings.

Shipping
Shipping is 1-2 business days after I receive payment. Beeswax orders are poured as they are received. All other items are made and ready to ship. I have found that USPS Priority is the best and most cost effective so I ship USPS exclusively. Insurance is included with all Priority Mail up to $50.00. If additional insurance is required I purchase the difference except on wholesale orders.

Most of my items can be combined for a better rate on shipping however some pottery items need to be shipped separately due to the shape or size of the item. Hooked rugs are shipped separately. Convo me if you have any questions about this.

I will replace beeswax items that are damaged in transit after I receive a picture of the damaged item and the box it was shipped in showing damage to the box if any.
