Announcement   'meet' me here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpxMb4-XhsI and you can watch me make lots of stuff at youtube.com/timsway or www.timsway.net

thanks for looking in my shop where you'll find all sorts of furniture, jewelry, housewares, art and more made from reclaimed, recycled, upcycled and salvaged goods! there's a couple of things you should know:
* some items do not have shipping charges included. if so, i ask that you contact me prior to purchase so we can arrange the best and most economical way to get my art to you - especially the larger pieces.
* yeah, i called my stuff "art." i consider myself more of an artist than a builder, but i do build my stuff to last and withstand daily use.
* 99% of my materials are reclaimed, salvaged, dug up from dumpsters, repurposed, upcycled, etc. i keep it as green and vegetarian as possible.
* if you want a bigger look at my varying work, check out my already sold items here on etsy and my website, www.timsway.net
if you want a little more insight in to me, watch this little mini-documentary: http://youtu.be/DpxMb4-XhsI
* i would LOVE to make something just for you. toss your ideas my way!

*thanks for looking,

A great pencil holder from Tim Sway Perspectives. And I got a Vancemaker signed business card too. (DiResta ice pick not included.) Five stars!

i like making unique things for unique people out of reclaimed materials. some of my stuff is pretty tame, some is pretty wild. i build like an artist and consider each piece i build a (usually) functional work of art. no two are ever the same, even when i make two of the same things!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
paypal is preferred but i will accept personal checks and money orders, etc. i just won't ship your item until the check clears. i'm a huge fan of the barter system, too. if you see something you like and would like to trade, i may be totally down with the idea. never hurts to ask.
Shipping
i don't like seeing my customers spend a ton of money on shipping (which can get expensive with some larger pieces of furniture) so i do the legwork and ship the least expensive way, always, unless you request differently. just convo me if you need it in a rush or whatever.

i'm also down for delivery within a 150 mile radius or so (i may need to charge you a few bucks for gas and tolls, depending how far you are) and you are more than welcome to come pick it up. just talk to me. i'm a pretty nice guy.

many items don't have shipping included in the listing because with larger items it varies greatly from zone to zone. you will have to pay shipping if you buy the item. convo me for a quote prior to purchase if the expense is a concern.

if shipping is already included in the listing and i do overcharge you for i will refund you the difference. i do inflate the shipping cost a little (when necessary) to cover packing materials.
Refunds and Exchanges
i want everyone to be happy with their purchase. period. if you're not, i will take the item back (in the same condition you received it) within two weeks or so of receiving the item for a full refund of the purchase price, minus shipping and 7% of the item cost for a restocking fee.
Additional policies and FAQs
i do custom orders, will wholesale items, i'm pretty open to lots of things - including things i haven't even thought of yet! bottom line:go ahead and ask, talk to me, convo me, whatever. and if you want a broader idea of what i do, look at some of my already sold items and check out www.timsway.net for even more info.

thanks for looking,
