Announcement    🍄 SHOP UPDATES & NEWS 🍄

I was asked if any of my products are vegan and guess what? Some are!

I utilize a few companies for supplies and they do not test on animals. All are Beauty without Bunnies or Leaping Bunny certified except one that I will be asking directly (their website clearly states that they are cruelty free and clean however). I checked the ingredients of everything I was curious about by using ingredient check websites to be sure. The listings of the bases which came up with some questions about the source of the glycerin or stearic acid, etc clearly stated in their ingredient lists that they are vegetable based! The oils I use from all the companies are all completely vegan as well!

So any soap that is entirely made of the olive oil or the shea butter with oatmeal (has gluten) is completely vegan! Even those that smell like honey or other possibly non-vegan treats!

Knowing how important this is to so many I’ll be getting more variety of vegan bases in my next order to create more availability for our vegan friends, family and clients!

Thank you!


Hello and Welcome 🌿

At TW&S I take the time and care to create beautiful (and sometimes silly) things. Inspired by the “granny crafts” that fell by the wayside in much of the modern world but that have been taken up with vigor as many have begun to seek out our roots. Infused with magic and mystery by a solitary witch, mama of two and hygge enthusiast in the PNW. 🌿

Due to Etsy prioritizing items with free shipping I have eliminated international shipping. If you’d like something shipped internationally please contact me. I’m terribly sorry about any inconvenience this may cause.

Find us across most social media platforms under: “The Well and Spindle” or “thewellandspindle” to stay informed and up to date on new products, sales, discounted items, giveaways and more!

Thank you and be well!

About TheWellAndSpindle

Sales 2,948
On Etsy since 2008

~From my roots to your branches~

Hello! I’m Briar and I am the Creatrix behind “The Well and Spindle.” I began selling officially on Etsy in November of 2008 but had been serving my community long before that. I had been making and donating products I crafted for local witch and pagan fundraising events for years before I opened my shop and I knew it was a good move when my community urged me to open an online store! Having been raised by a witch and crafting my entire life, I needed to share my genuine love to create magic with the world! In my years on Etsy I have made wood burned decor, jewelry, historically influenced accessories, fiber crafts, bath and body products, herbal products, ritual tools and more. I also taught classes and hosted workshops for many years for a coven I was a part of, local pagan groups and for the local Pagan Pride Day event where I grew up (which I also vended at). As a neurodivergent person I am always branching out and yearning to learn more as part of my need to bring new life into the world around me and crush stagnancy. Finding new things to research and test being a huge interest of mine as well. Now I’m here still serving the community I have created online and beyond them.

My shop reflects my life. I cater my crafts and my need to transform things around me as I see fit.

If you would like to know more about me I am a non-binary and queer person, Inclusive Heathen, long-time Witch raised by Pagan Witch for a mother and inheriting psychic gifts from my father, mother of two (much cooler than me) neurodiverse kids, life partner to my one love, research obsessed Leo, herbalist in training, avid reader, yarn spinner, fiber artist, gardener, low key hiker and more. Some of my other interests include mythology, folklore, religious studies, Tudor history, philosophy, mycology, spirituality, magic, witchcraft, Viking age Scandinavia, history in general, divination and more!

You can find me on most social networking sites. I mainly utilize Facebook, Pinterest, TikTok, Twitter and Instagram.

Thank you for being here! I appreciate you!

Returns and exchanges
Please be aware that I do not accept returns or give refunds. Each item is unique and made by one person. Items cannot be resold and the time, effort and money that goes into a product as well as shipping charges if returned is lost. For hygienic purposes items cannot be resold and shipping back may be unsafe as well. Making returned items a total loss. Most especially, during a pandemic which can effect mine and my family’s safety. Therefore, I will not be taking returns.

The nature of digital items is that they are unable to be returned. Sending a file back does not remove it from your records and we will not be accepting returns or refunds on these items whatsoever.

Please be absolutely sure you want an item before purchasing.

Different situations call for different ways of solving problems so I will work with potential issues as they come in the best way I can manage.

Please note that I am not responsible for lost or damaged items that I have shipped through USPS. Once the package is out of my hands I can do no more to ensure its safe arrival. Added insurance can be purchased if contacted ahead of buying an item but not after.

Shipping
I ship my items using the United States Postal Service and use First Class or Priority to help ensure it gets there promptly!

Shipments go out once a week. Depending on the item they will either be wrapped in tissue and placed in a bubble envelope or placed in a cardboard box and sealed with tape. I generally will either add bubble wrap, foam peanuts and/or tissue to protect items. Please either reuse or recycle the materials I send your package in! Every little bit helps our precious Mother Earth. I try hard to ensure your items are protected and properly secure and also that I am not creating too much waste! I also take the time to properly clean and keep clean any items I use in packaging as well as myself so that anything I may touch stays clean.

INSURANCE: I do not add extra insurance when shipping but if you would care for added insurance please contact me promptly and I will gladly add it for a small fee.
