gardenwhimsies' Shop Announcement

☞ PERFECT, ONE-OF-A-KIND gifts... JUST LIKE MOM!
All EAST COAST gift orders should be placed by Monday noon latest (my last drop off time is by 6PM, PST). Right now delivery to Ohio and Indiana averages 4 biz days (likely arriving Friday, late Sat.) so any further over must go out tomorrow to make it by Saturday (residential deliveries happen on Sat.). OTHERWISE, order one of the smaller pieces for Priority Mail for guaranteed arrival...

(If you see a leaf you like, buy it ASAP. One-of-a-kind pieces can be nearly impossible to duplicate... I'm painting now to add more stock by May 3rd! (Four new items by 1:30PM, PST... took a painting break on 5/2 and now back on task! If you want particular colors just let me know!)

☞ I may run concurrent sales locally and online every weekend. Items sold locally will be deactivated without notice. If you like the colors/shape, grab it now!

☞ LOOK AT MY REVIEWS-Colors are even prettier in person & shipping fast!

☞ ☞ MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND LOCAL SHOWS:
Bring mom and let her pick her favorite colors!!
Sat 5/9 - Hillsboro Farmers Market downtown
Sun. 5/10 - Milwaukie Farmers Market downtown

EACH LEAF is one-of-a-kind. FOLLOW ME to see new items every other day!
I have over 400 leaves waiting to be be painted. Custom orders are done quickly.

☞ If you are interested in a larger size, different color, etc. let me know. Custom pieces can often be completed within a couple of days.

☞ INTERESTED IN OTHER COLORS, LEAVES OR SIZES? The Pinterest page shows a VERY small sampling of thousands of pieces I've created. For past colors and finishes go to my PINTEREST page for a sampling of the thousands of leaves I've created since 2008:

CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES!
1) MOUNT STYLE - Do you want it to stand up in garden, sit flat, do both or even hang?
2) COLORS - Choose from "natural" finishes, all metallic or mixed (natural and metallic)
3) LEAF TYPE - Want smooth textures like a hosta? Heavy veins like a Rhubarb?

*** 2015 SHOWS & AVAILABILITY
Please note that I will be further scaling back my markets (and art/garden shows).
I'll be showing more pieces online (rather than lots of heavy lifting).
I'm also diversifying my product lines to include glass, ceramic and driftwood.

PARTIAL SHOW LIST -- FARMERS MARKETS (FM), ART AND GARDEN SHOWS:
~~> ALWAYS CHECK WITHIN 2 DAYS OF A SHOW DATE
to confirm that I am attending and haven't rescheduled! <~~

IF YOU ARE LOCAL AND LOOKING FOR YOUR MOTHER'S DAY GIFT, it is best to purchase the item and I can deliver it to you at my first show and refund your shipping. Please don't wait assuming it may still be available by then since every piece is one of a kind.

Possibly a last minute scheduling into Hillsboro the weekend before Mother's Day. I will NOT be at the Spring Garden Fair as in years past, great show but I simply didn't enroll this year. Come early to Hillsboro to get the first pick!

Mother's Day Weekend shows:
Sat - Hillsboro Farmers Market downtown
Sun. - Milwaukie Farmers Market downtown

Shows I will definitely be booking into this year:
Hillsboro & Milwaukie Farmers Market
I will NOT be attending many of my regular garden and art shows
but will consider returning to those in 2016.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~ LOCAL DELIVERIES:
I do not have an actual "studio," I meet clients around town or deliver them instead.
I will refund shipping (back onto your credit card or, in cash) minus a delivery fee ($5).
Contact me for details.

~ LEAF AVAILABILITY
WATER LILIES
Water lily prices will go up due to how slow they grew last year, both large and small.
I will be adding a new type of lily pad to the collection, still in smaller quantities.

EXOTICS
Gunnera are cast for custom orders (name your size up to 6 feet, I have a dozen plants).
Lotus and Australian Lilies are held in reserve for special orders, contact me.
I hold various castings aside for special projects, contact with your desires.

I work nearly a year in advance to carry sufficient stock. Custom and specialty items (3 foot and wider leaves or fountains) must be fit in between the regular production work so contact me early in the season for best leaf availability.

I sell all year round and ship all over the U.S.

CUSTOM AND RESERVED ORDERS:

If you have a favorite leaf, coloration, etc. please ask. I have lots of leaves and may have the leaf size you want. You tell me the colors and we'll get it listed.

Larger leaf listings are almost always picked out for custom order requests so if you want one for a special event such as a birthday, anniversary or housewarming gift - contact me so we can put aside your perfect leaf!

FEEDBACK / REVIEWS:

I consider feedback (or reviews) on each purchase to be VERY important. I take a lot of time creating these pieces, packing carefully and shipping them fast, please take the time to provide a review on your purchase.

For more information on how to leave an Etsy Review go to this link: https://www.etsy.com/help/article/102?ref=help_search_result. Reviews can only be left for 60 days after shipping, after that the ability to do so is closed.

ALTERNATE PAYMENT OPTIONS

Please convo me. I will gladly accept checks (given time for clearance and will mark your item RESERVED while your check is processing).

AVAILABLE "GIANT" PIECES

I have multiple extra-large, unpainted pieces (averaging 4 feet or wider) which are not brought to local shows (due to size/weight): gunnera, tetrapanax, japanese butterbur and others... Contact me if you are interested in these for water features, garden focal pieces or alters, etc.

PLEASE NOTE I do reserve the right to sell, or not sell to, various persons. I have invested a lot of time and money isolating the products and processes to make my items and in some cases I may choose not to share with competing interests and will promptly refund your money.

All of my pieces are handmade by me and photos of them in part or full are my property. Any use of those images whether solo or in compilation images will be pursued for copyright violation (I've had several folks try using my images for their own "how-to" articles). Misuse will be pursued across any venues in which they are found.

This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards.
