About

Osteal : Scavenger / Forager

Osteal : (aw - stee - ull) // Medical Definition of OSTEAL : of, relating to, or resembling bone; also : affecting or involving bone or the skeleton.

Earthy, Strange and Focused on being as Ethical as Possible.

Ethics : moral principles that govern a person's behavior.
“Ethical behavior is doing the right thing when no one else is watching- even when doing the wrong thing is legal.”― Aldo Leopold

Thank you so much I truly appreciate your continued support.

All natural items in this shop are found by luck and season, the types of bones/wood/herbs i find vary greatly from year to year and season to season - just as it does in Nature. When I am lucky enough to meet other ethical scavengers we do trade bones, supplies and raw materials. (i do not buy bulk bones online, i do not support fur farms, factory farms, trapping, trophy hunting or the exotic pet trade)

I use the bones i find out in the wild, some hunter dumped, some natural death and some from roadkill. I do not enjoy finding roadkill, and most is truly unusable for bone art or jewelry. I always move bodies of animals hit by cars out of the road, when possible, to honor them and to create safer feeding for other scavengers.

Why is shipping to CANADA soooo expensive.

Feel free to ask : www.usps.com

The prices for shipping are automatically calculated by the USPS and we have ZERO control over them.

Unless an item is FLAT it must be shipped as a Package not a Letter.
Base price for a 2 oz PACKAGE from USA to Canada is $10 - and pricing goes up from there.

Most items have a small processing/handling fee that is less than $2 and covers my time + packaging costs (all supplies are USA made, recyclable, biodegradable and recycled)
