The Handcrafted Buffalo

Growing up on a farm in southern Minnesota taught me many things. The most important of which was that our hands can create beautiful things. I came from a line of women who could sew a perfect patchwork quilt, build a loft bed in a weekend, crochet a baby blanket in no time, and mix and fry up the best batch of lefse this side of the Atlantic! I can't do any of these things. [Except in assisting in the lefse process.] What I can do though is make unexpected things out of felt and yarn - from flowers to wreaths to embroidery hoop art - the sky is the limit. My sister also applies her talents in fabric and paper to add dynamic to The Handcrafted Buffalo. Her "READ!" collection of paper banners are a customer favorite!

I work in academia and my sister works in the health field. The Handcrafted Buffalo allows us to have a creative output where we can channel our love of these textiles into lovely finished pieces. We put a lot of love and care into our products and we do hope it shows!

Please let me know if you have any questions! Feel free to follow our adventures and give us a "Hello there!" over on Facebook or Instagram @handcraftedbuffalo

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Please reach out to us if you want a custom order! We are currently accepting custom orders on certain products. Please know that the processing time will change depending on the order. If we do not have the correct amount of material on hand, we will have to order from our suppliers. We will not start a custom order until the custom listing is purchased.

Thank you for your understanding!

Shipping Time

We usually ship within 1-3 days of any item we have in stock!

We do not ship until payment clears. In some cases, this may take an extra day.

If a package is returned because of an incorrect address the buyer will be responsible for paying to re-ship.

The shipping time for custom orders is longer than in stock items.

Refunds & Exchanges

Please contact me if you are not happy with an item, I'll do my best to make you happy.

I'll accept exchanges if the item is returned two week after you received it (in the same condition it was sent to you) and you can exchange it for something else currently listed in my shop of the same price. You'll be responsible for all shipping charges.

International Buyers

I do offer international shipping to select countries.

You will be responsible for any duty, tax and customs fees on your end.
VAT is not included in my pricing. If you live in a country that includes VAT on import please check to see what the cost may be.

Shipping Issues

Shipping issues are rare, but they do happen. Once we leave a package at our post office, its travel to you is out of our control. Labor disputes and other activities within a national postal service sometimes result in delivery delays.

Customer must provide The Handcrafted Buffalo with the correct mailing address and we are not responsible for USPS undeliverable, incorrect or unconfirmed addresses.

Smoke free/Pet-Friendly Homes

We create handcrafted pieces in smoke-free environments that are pet-friendly.
