Welcome to the Rivershed Etsy Shop! Rivershed offers hand-crafted gourd art, with a focus on gourds grown in the Susquehanna River watershed. The gourds are often enhanced with driftwood or other items from the river banks or local farms. In a small, but important way, Rivershed supports local agriculture and the health of the Chesapeake Bay.

You may find the occasional basket or vintage item on Rivershed also. I love my gourds but I also love auctions, and I can't resist stopping as I travel to purchase gourds or enhancements. Enjoy and shop often!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Due to the uniqueness of items sold by Rivershed, I do not allow exchanges. If you believe that a work you purchased is defective, please let me know within 7 days and I will accept a return. The buyer will pay return postage, in the same manner as shipped. You will be credited for your purchase.

I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions of concerns. My goal is to provide you with an item or a piece of gourd art that you love!
Payment by Pay Pal is preferred, and payment is expected within three days. This helps me keep shipments moving.
I also accept payment by check or money order. If you choose to pay by check or money order, let me know and please send your payment so I receive it within a week. Checks must clear before I ship.
I generally ship by Priority Mail with a shipping confirmation. Typically, insurance on breakable items is included. If you prefer a different shipping method, upgrade, or insurance, please let me know so these can be included. Shipments are usually made on Wednesday and Saturday. If quicker shipping is necessary to have a gift arrive on time, please let me know! If something is a gift and ships directly to the recipient, please let me know so that I can wrap it for you. If you purchase more than one item at a time, shipping will be combined to give you the best rate.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always happy to talk to you about a custom order. Most gourd art can be created in a different size or color or on a differently shaped gourd. Please contact me by convo and we can work together on a gourd you will love!
