Welcome to The Thorn Tree! I am Kate Thornton and I love to create things! I hope that you find something you love here. If you're looking for something that isn't here, please send me a message about it. I love challenges to create something new.

For payment of your Kate Thornton creation:
I accept PayPal (preferred) and Etsy direct checkout.

If you've purchased a tangible item, I will generally ship your item within 48 hours after payment is received.

If you've purchased a digital item, please follow Etsy's procedures for download. If you have trouble with that, by all means, contact me and I will email your files to the address you provide.
For US bound purchases, I prefer to use USPS either First Class or Priority shipping depending upon the size of the parcel. For items over $50 in value I will also provide insurance at no extra charge.

For international postage, delivery confirmation is unavailable. However, I will add insurance for packages over $50 in value. I believe in ethical business conduct, so please do not ask me to provide inaccurate information on customs forms.

By default, I include a copy of the Etsy invoice with each package. If you would prefer that I not waste the paper and ink, please let me know either in convo or in message to the seller and I will not include it in the package.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with your purchase please contact me within 3 days of receiving your package to arrange return.

Purchase price of the item will be refunded once the item has been returned but shipping cost will not be refunded.

Returned packages must have Insurance and Delivery Confirmation.
You are responsible for return shipping cost with Insurance and Delivery Confirmation.

The returned item must be in the condition in which it was received. I cannot give a full refund for an item that is of less quality than I sent, nor can I resell an item that has been used or damaged.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always welcome. Simply message me and we can begin to plan your original creation. There is never an obligation to purchase the item if you do not like the finished piece. Be aware that I hold a full time day-job and am also a parent, so any custom order will take time.

If you are interested in a wholesale or consignment arrangement, please contact me and we can discuss the details.

For all custom work: Please do not ask me to create anything using licensed or copyrighted images. Also, I will not make anything illegal, hateful, pornographic or otherwise inappropriate. It is important to me that I maintain an ethical approach to my art.
