Those items can still include hand made items. The availability of each items states it's timeline. If your order has both ready to ship and hand made items with a lead time, the order will ship together. There isn't ususally enough funds paid to split an order into 2 shipments. If you would like the order shipped that way, please contact us and I'll work with you and more shipping funds may be required from you.

Shipping Lead Time:
Hand crafted orders run usually 1-2 weeks, unless stated otherwise in the product description. Shipping time depends on the number of hand crafted items on your order and also the volume of orders I'm currently working on before your order was placed. *If there is a special need, please let me know and I'll do my best to meet that need*
During peak seasons, typically January-April and July-Dec. orders can take 2 weeks or more to complete depending on number of hand crafted pieces. Not to exceed 4 weeks. Please know that we hand made each item when it's ordered. We take pride and want to do our very best to make your item special.
All handmade items are stated that way in the descriptions with Hand made by Heidi, Lynn or Tom. Most Lynn and Tom items are in stock most of the time unless marked otherwise.
Examples of handmade items include: Stack boxes, plates, books, screens, personalized signs, signs, bowl fillers, and more.
*New policy, effective immediately. For any item that we are asked to change beyond the offerings or options listed, there will be a $5 fee added on to the cost of each item. We are asked often to change items from what we show or offer already on our hand mades. When this happens and the new design is approved upon, an additional $5 per item charge will be added onto your order. WE love to customize it for you, but it does take additional time, emails, and slows processing time from our regular items. If you have any questions please contact me, I'd be happy to go over it with you.
Shipping time on commercial made items, which are in stock, usually ship within 1-3 business days. Those items are not handmade by Gainers Creek. These items include: floral, resin, lighting items, linens, and antiques.

All hand crafted items are not going to be exactly alike. Many of the items on the web site are to look time worn. Wood items and stack boxes are sanded to give them an antique look. Some wood items may have small knots or cracks to give that primitive country appearance.
If for some reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, please contact me. Returns can be made on some items and you must contact me first before returning any item. Items that can be returned must be packaged in original packaging and insured. Shipping charges are not refundable. Shipping costs back to us are paid by the customer.
Personalized items cannot be returned and it is good to double check the spellings before submitting your orders. If you have made an error, contact us right way. If the item is received and you notice an error, the item can be sent back and fixed. Customer is responsible for shipping both ways. If it is an error made by Gainers Creek, I will fix it and pay for return shipping or send a replacement out at my cost.
