My main goal is that you have a most pleasurable experience browsing and shopping at NorthwindStar Primitives. Please know, I take great pride in my workmanship, quality of materials used and take the time to add the fine details in all my creations. Customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance to me.

Should you have questions or need assistance with anything, please contact me prior to purchasing and I will answer promptly. Weekends are devoted to family time, therefore it might take me a bit longer to get back to you.

All my handmade creations come from a totally smoke free environment. The process and ingredients I use in aging my primitive creations are not scent free, therefore it may cause issues for those who are sensitive/allergic to scents.

All of my handmades are for home decorating and collecting ONLY and NOT intended for children or used as a toy. They are made using small accent items which may pose a choking hazard to small children !!!
