Where to buy

Upcoming Happy Returns road and home shows are noted on the home page. Items are also sometimes (‘tho not currently) available at several local retailers. You can also get sneak previews and updates (plus a 10% discount!) by liking us on Facebook. Or drop me an e-mail to be added to the mailing list. At this time I have no plans to ship anything since all Happy Returns creations are some combination of fragile/bulky/heavy in addition to being one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable. Also - in the spirit of recycling - long distance transport doesn’t make sense environmentally. You’re welcome to stop by my garden, so I guess that makes the store hours “by chance or by appointment.”

Custom orders

The gallery on this website is a portfolio of sorts of what I’ve done so far, but I’ve got tons more ideas and a zillion parts awaiting projects. Browse through the gallery to get an idea of what type of item you might like as well as your preferences for materials, style, colors, etc. and I’ll be happy to make something just for you. I can even incorporate a piece of your Grandma’s china. Professional landscaper inquiries are welcome.

Return policy

Happy Returns items are fragile; please handle them with care. Also note that the components are previously owned and imperfections are part of the deal. However, if your purchase develops a joint problem (such as it comes apart or there is excessive condensation inside a glass section), please bring it back and I’ll attempt to repair it.
