Greetings from Black Springs, a Folk Art collaboration between Doug Switalski and Beca Lewis Skeels. We specialize in creating heirloom folk art in the swamplands of North Florida. We started our journey as Tumbleweeds Handcraft, making the original wood veneer sunglasses. Our journey has taken us all over the country, but despite the location changes, we have stayed true to our mission - to create functional folk art with our hands, and connect with a community of humans all over the world. Our work has been featured in magazines, newspapers, fashion and design blogs and we experienced a growth that we never expected. We have evolved over the last 5 years into exactly what we need to be - a collaboration of 2 artists, creating heirloom pieces for exceptional humans. It's been a rocky road these last few years, but we have made the difficult decision to limit our work to ready-to-ship items and only take on a small number of custom works per season. Custom orders or made to order sale items can take 12-14 week shipping or production and delivery, sometimes longer so please expect a flexible production time.
We ship on Fridays, and only Fridays. This is an effort to help out our very small post office that can be overwhelmed with accepting orders daily. If you purchase on a Friday, your order will ship the following Friday. Please double check your shipping address because we cannot change it once an order has been placed. In an attempt to stay organized and in communication with our customers, we will adhere to this shipping schedule strictly.
If you are placing an order outside of the US, please be aware that First Class packages can take up to 10 weeks for delivery. This is the policy of the United States Post Office and out of our control. If you wish to purchase priority shipping, the shipping time varies rom 6-10 business days. Both options have tracking available on the packages journey to customs - and dependent on your country for tracking after the border. We are not liable for lost or stolen packages. We will not falsify customs forms, so be prepared to pay a duty fee according to your countries policies regarding purchased made in the US.
We charge a Florida State sales tax.
