| Chattanooga, Tennessee

Star Seller.

This seller sets a shining example for providing a great customer experience, with a history of 5-star reviews, on-time shipping, and quick replies to any messages they received.

Announcement    All my Victorian Style displays are handmade and use almost all natural preserved plant life. I do my best to show each animal in as natural a state as possible (with a few exceptions!). I mimic the Antique Victorian style of Taxidermy showcased in glass domes. I also do a lot of insect displays and anthropomorphic displays with insects and other small animals. All Animals that I work with I do my best to make sure are natural death, road kill, accidental death, food or vintage ready for the trash or are old and need restoration. I do not do the taxidermy myself but I work with several different taxidermist that assure me that they share the same views as I do and I have to rely on that. My grandchildren and friends collect dead bugs for me as well although not all of the bugs are through them and some are purchased through suppliers. This is a hobby that I have enjoyed for the last several years and I just love making them. I hope they are displayed, enjoyed and viewed for years to come by both young and old.
