TheBackyardBear's Shop Announcement

A Wildlife themed shop The Backyard Bear Arts and Crafts store sells upcycled handcrafted items such as the famous Muskoka mittens, paintings on driftwood, mason jar solar lights, buttons etc. Almost all items are made with reclaimed materials as I try to be a green as possible. Reuse, Recycle, Renew! Reclaimed fabric is washed before use. Driftwood is gathered on the banks of the Muskoka River. Other items are found during my travels to 2nd hand stores and yardsales.

I am a wildlife artist and I love custom orders. Please message me if you have an idea you wish to come to fruition. Mini-Wildlife Art is my specilty.

I can ship worldwide. Please message me if you are international for shipping costs before you purchase!

I SHIP ITEMS FOR COST THEREFORE THE QUOTED SHIPPING IS AN ESTIMATE AND IF THERE IS A DISCREPENCY WITHIN $1.00 I will reimburse you via paypal. I ALSO COMBINE SHIPPING COSTS. If your concerned about shipping costs please convo me.

Enjoy my shop and keep looking as I'll be adding new items as quick as I can. Please recommend my shop to your friends who love wildlife. Thank you!
