Treasures from the forest

Earthy, Strange and Focused on being as Ethical as Possible.

Ethics : moral principles that govern a person's behavior.
“Ethical behavior is doing the right thing when no one else is watching- even when doing the wrong thing is legal.”― Aldo Leopold

All natural items in this shop are found by luck and season, the types of bones/wood/herbs i find vary greatly from year to year and season to season - just as it does in nature.

When I am lucky enough to meet other ethical scavengers we do trade bones, supplies and raw materials. (i do not buy bulk bones online, i do not support fur farms, factory farms, trapping, trophy hunting or the exotic pet trade)

I use the bones i find out in the wild : hunter dumped, natural death and some from roadkill. I always move animals out of the road (when safe & possible) to create safer feeding for other scavengers.

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU ORDER

This shop and all parts involved are taken care of by One person. That means all the listings, all the making, all the photographs, all the shipping, all the emailing is done by one little lady who happens to have an Autoimmune disease called Hashimoto's & its companions: endometriosis, hypothyroidism and some other fun stuff that comes with the territory of Chronic Illness. Some days i'm in bed with exhaustion, some days i'm in the Emergency Room with pain and some days i feel almost normal.

My partner and I also live Very Rural. We loose internet connection often & the post office is ONLY open Monday-Friday. I generally ship items out Once a week & I try my best to get all orders out on time, but keep in mind shipping times are Approximate.

Your item may ship a few days late due to a variety of reasons - please - if you need or want your item by a specific date you must ask before you order, otherwise - understand that there may be shipping delays.

Thank you!
Please feel free to ask questions.

I live rural and can lose power and internet service for days at a time,
this may delay shipping as well as prevent me from contacting you.

All aspects of this shop are run by one lady (social media, advertising, photography,
concept, creation, purchasing supplies, answering customer emails, packaging and
shipping - which currently requires a 24 mile trip into town & back).
I truly appreciate your patience.

Why is shipping to CANADA soooo expensive.

Feel free to ask : www.usps.com

The prices for shipping are automatically calculated by the USPS and we have ZERO control over them.

Unless an item is FLAT it must be shipped as a Package not a Letter.
Base price for a 2 oz PACKAGE from USA to Canada is $10 - and pricing goes up from there.
