From the shop owner: Each piece of wood is hand selected, cut and painted by us! All signs are made with real wood, so your signs may have perfect imperfections such as knots, nicks, small cracks and holes. Since these signs are 100% handmade, no two signs will be the exact same as each piece of wood has it’s own character and takes to stains differently.
Delivery: Dispatch times vary depending on the piece (from 1 – 2 weeks), with FREE shipping in Canada on smaller items, signs are extra.
