Why is there a wait time on shipping?
We are a small home based business. Each item is made after you have submitted your order unless the item says READY TO SHIP and is something that I have made ahead. I give my customers many choices for the products that they order. Example: wood color, berry color, light options, homespun etc. Therefore it make take longer to receive. When your order is placed I may have anywhere from 15-25 orders (peak season volume is much higher Sept-March) and some of them with several items per order. I always try my best to have your order done and ready to ship within 2 weeks. Sometimes in the peak season and due to a high volume of orders it may go over that time frame. I make all of the items myself and my husband helps with wood cutting when I fall behind in the peak season. 2017 will be our 25th year as a full time business.
What does Black underneath the topcoat mean?
The black underneath means if you would be ordering something in ivory, mustard, burgundy etc you have the option to have it painted with black underneath the topcoat color. Then it would be sanded and distressed after both color coats have-been applied. The black underneath gives items a more rustic look after it has been distressed with some of the black showing through for more of a primitive look. If you are wanting the item to be just black you DO NOT select black underneath the topcoat. Most of my customers prefer the look of the two tone painting.

Why can't we order from all of the Seasonal categories all the time?
The reason I only offer 1-2 Seasonal categories at a time is due to high volume of orders. I try to stay within the season and be able to have more time to make some of my homespun seasonal items that may be Ready to ship items for my customers.
