Such an unusual and delightful gift, I shall have great difficulty parting with it. I asked the artist to put Shalom on the placard so that it could be on display all year round as the thought of it living in a cupboard for eleven months was not acceptable. I love it.

Such a lovely miniature set of rabbi and menorah. My husband was totally delighted with it and it is ideal for Hanukkah.

Very cute...attention to detail was great! Not exactly what I was expecting, a little different than on line sample. Prompt responsive service, delivered right on time. Received lots of compliments from my wedding guests. Over all very pleased. 4.5 stars!!!

About

Making you smile since the late 20th Century.

I believe that using handmade objects as the centerpiece of a celebration builds lifelong traditions that remind us of the feelings we had that day we first used them. A wedding cake topper represents you as a couple, and it is one of the few mementos from that special day that you keep and display in your home for many years. Holiday decorations are brought out annually and set the mood for a festive home. A custom carving of your beloved dog or cat can come to the office with you, and reminds you of that special bond for decades. I make each piece from over 75% upcycled wood that would be otherwise destined for the trash bin or fire pit. My designs merge old world craftsmanship with humor and happiness to remind you of the most important days of your life.

In addition to Etsy, I sell this work at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, Velvet da Vinci Gallery, the Center for Art in Wood, Oregon College of Art and Craft, Artful Home, and Crafty Wonderland's holiday bazaar in my hometown Portland, Oregon. The work I show on my Etsy site has been in the Style section of the Sunday New York Times, Brides Magazine, Green Wedding Shoes, 100 Layer Cake, Eco-Beautiful Weddings, Wedding Bee, and ReadyMade Magazine, among others. A feature article about my work was published in the December 2013 issue of American Craft Magazine.

    I started making my living from my artwork in 1989, and soon after, adopted the name Bunny with a Toolbelt to reflect the way I love to learn and work in many different art media.

Hello Beautiful Person!

In the past two decades of working with customers, I have had almost no returns, breakage or losses during shipping, or dissatisfied customers. Rest assured that you are in good hands.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
Etsy makes it easy to pay with your credit card or Paypal account. If this doesn't work for you, please email me and we can figure out another option, such as sending me your credit card info. The old fashioned way of mailing me a check is also a suitable solution. This of course, will take longer, as payment needs to clear before I can ship an order.

I love special orders and can usually turn around an original piece designed just for you in the neighborhood of 2-3 weeks. Payment is due in full before I start making the piece, but I will send drawings before you agree to anything. Custom orders are not refundable.
Shipping
I typically can ship the available items you see in my shop within a week of order date. I will send you an email if I'm backlogged on orders, but if you don't hear from me and have a specific deadline, please let me know. I am more than happy to send your item via expedited shipping, but will charge you whatever the post office makes me pay them to do it.

I use the United States Postal System for most mailings, and occasionally UPS under certain circumstances. I charge a flat fee for shipping for most items in this shop, and that price holds no matter now much you have in your shopping cart! With larger fragile items like my tall trees, shipping is a little higher. Again, if you need your pieces to come sooner, please contact me.

Shipping costs for U.S. orders include insurance. International packages are sent at the buyer's risk and can often take several weeks to arrive, I've found.

Each item is carefully wrapped to arrive safely on your doorstep. I am happy to ship items to your home or workplace, whatever is best suited to assure someone is there to receive the package.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with your the quality of anything you order, I will refund it if returned within one week of receipt. Customer must notify me immediately of their intent to return an item, so that I know I will be here to receive it. Refunds will be made if piece is returned in good condition.

Again, I do not offer refunds for custom orders.

If your piece arrives damaged, please contact me immediately. All packages sent within the United States will have a tracking number, which will automatically be sent to you when I create your shipping label. I cannot be held responsible for packages that are marked "delivered" by the post office, but are missing, but I will make a claim for the insured value. Please help me keep an eye on your package so we can act quickly if it goes missing. Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
My Etsy shop is the premiere location to purchase my work. I occasionally do studio sales and craft shows in the Portland area--check my bunnywithatoolbelt.com website for information.

I am not currently accepting any more wholesale or consignment galleries for my work.
