When will my order ship?

Due to the volume of orders we are processing, and since almost everything we make and sell is custom made, the usual turnaround time is 10 business days or 2 weeks before we ship your order. Occasionally the time could be less- contact us with questions about your particular order.

I need my order sooner; can you help me?

Depending on how many orders we are currently processing, there may be times when we can ship your order in less than 2 weeks. Contact us with your question, and we'll do what we can to help you.

What info do you need from me to customize my order, and how do I provide this information to you?

Very very good. the item was most beautiful. Probably the most lovely nativity scene I found shopping online. I had another one for Christmas but this will stay up on my bedroom window ledge for the whole holy year.

It was perfect. Arrived in time for the gift I was using it for

Absolutely wonderful! This nativity is just what I was looking for. Simple and clean, looks great with my shells. Arrived quickly, safe and well packaged.

Love it so much - wish you had a larger table top version of this.

Beautiful! Perfect size for table top manager scene or ornament. Very beach!
