Announcement   ***********************ALL PRICES INCLUDE SHIPPING**************************
Our stained glass sun catchers are hand made in our home in Western Pennsylvania. My husband and I know the store name might seem odd for hand made products - it's just that he used to be a mechanic and approaches this hobby as meticulously as a precision machine would - hence the name of our store - Welcome!

About

A Collaberation of Husband and Wife

After 30 years of marriage, we decided that nothing could possibly add more to our relationship than cut fingers and broken glass! He's a retired mechanic and I'm a technical project manager. We've always shared a love of glass art, however when we saw a stained glass piece we liked, it seemed expensive. So, we learned how to make these for ourselves! We use the copper foil method of construction. The process is time consuming, tedious and, well... it's not easy - but we were determined to make quality stained glass products that we could share with others at affordable prices. Now, after lots and lots of trial and error (mostly error), we have finally gotten the hang of it and offer you this selection of our most popular sun catchers, made by hand in our Pennsylvania home.

We can make any of these in just about any color you'd like. Of course, if you're looking for something else entirely - just click on Custom Orders to let us know!

Special requests are welcome!

Every item is one-of-a-kind! No two pieces of glass are identical - even of the same color - for example, we've made dozens of purple hummingbirds, but the differences in the glass make each one slightly different. Just let us know which pattern and what color(s) you want us to make for you! We will let you know how soon we can get it done! (we have 'real jobs' too)

Of course, if we already have something made, we can send it right away!

NOTE: Concerning Social media - we simply do not have time. We spend every spare moment we have making stained glass.

Thanks!
Tim and Betsy Johnsen

Payment
We use PayPal for our customers protection. It is the safe way to pay on-line.
Shipping
Shipping is included to United States addresses (no APO, FPO or Postal Boxes). We use flat rate shipping through USPS. This method includes insurance and tracking numbers for everyone's protection!

For International shipments, we need the shipping address to calculate the lowest cost shipping for you. Please contact us for a shipping quote. We are not able to ship to countries where tracking is not available.

We package everything carefully to prevent breakage - proudly using recycled materials whenever possible.

If a piece is damaged in shipping, please let us know with a clear photo of the damage and we will handle it as soon as possible.

NOTE:
We've recently noticed that our items are sometimes being delivered to parcel lockers. This is news to us, so we researched it and got two different answers. One says that means a parcel locker in a mail cluster box. Another says that it is in a locker at a local facility. Either way, we have no control once we ship with USPS.
Again, we use this USPS priority system because of the insurance and the predetermined price (which is less than any other method we found to safely get our product delivered).
We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Contact us if you have any shipping questions.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are welcome! If you see a piece you like, but want it in a different color....or if you would like something different altogether - just contact us! All custom orders must be paid for in advance.
