Announcement   Our little shop has evolved over the years from a two desk shop in our garage to the leader in miniature handmade garden cottages, industrial furniture, and metal signs.

We make our cottages from a stone we call Celtic Stone -- a handmade stone made like pottery. They are hand formed like a vase, they cure for up to 13 weeks and are then hand carved with hammer and chisel. All of the accents are hand made, hand bent, and hand finished. The truth is, we love making our little garden cottages and industrial garden art and we love the look on our customers' faces when they see them in person.

We also hand make unique Metal Signs and Industrial Art pieces that ship to galleries and stores across the country.

In our reviews you will notice a couple that are due to delays. We do sometimes get large projects that delay production and at times we could do a better job of communicating -- as artists we get tunnel vision at times and apologize to those who have had delays.

Our products are all truly handmade in Mentor, Ohio and do sometimes take some time. If we get overwhelmed with orders we do sometimes need a little more time than normal.

Really disappointed in the communication and shipping from the seller. It would have been nice to know how long it would take to receive my item and updates from the seller about the status of my order. It was suppose to be a Father's Day gift for my Father and I ordered it a month in advance, it is now Fourth of July and I still have not received. If a seller has a photo of the item on their shop, they should have the item in stock or ship within 1 to 2 weeks. It is now 8 weeks and I still have not received the item. I am more disappointed in the lack of communication from the seller.

Gave the seller a second chance, and he came through in flying colors! Got it to me in 2 days (!) and it's beautiful. So glad I stayed with it!

About

Makers of Miniature Stone Cottages and Unique Metal Art

We started on two little desks in our 20x20 garage. The first houses we made were all given as gifts, as well as placed in our own yard. Little by little, people would stop by our house and ask where we purchased the little cottages -- we would tell them "we make them." From that little start we have built our little business. All of our little cottages are still made the same way -- by hand and with care and sold directly by us from our shops in Mentor and Willoughby, Ohio.

Our cottages are made from a very special stone that we've created called "Celtic Stone." It is a combination of 14 ingredients and is formed by hand like pottery. It then cures for 11 weeks, getting water baths along the way and in the 12th week the stone cottages are all hand carved. Meanwhile, the roofs are being cut, bent by hand, and then hand painted in one of our signature colors. Everything meets up and Julie hand embellishes the cottages and gets them ready for their journey to your home.
