We're a one-woman shop with a little help now and then from Husband Craig, loading and unloading lumber, changing the sandpaper, troubleshooting odd noises in the old vintage equipment. We sell online, on consignment in shops, and at shows.
So how can you get our lovely things the rest of the year?
--Contact us directly: Valerie@plainandpractical.com
--Choose from here on our web site, where postage is included in the price--go to the bottom of the page and click on PRODUCTS. Notice only small things are there--because postage is crazy, and our stuff is either bulky or heavy or both.
--If you want to save more money, and can pick up anywhere around Columbus, Ohio, we can meet you in a safe public location and exchange your either prepaid item or do paypal on the spot with our phone, or swipe your credit card, or accept cash and give you a paper receipt. We're happy to deduct the postal expense from your total.
Best of all, help two small businesses at the same time, and purchase our items through WitchLab, located on Broad Street in downtown Columbus, Ohio. We keep our web site prices the same as in their shop (sometimes higher because of postage considerations). If you like our things, you'll find their store is chock-full of wonderful items for you.
You can purchase most of our items, or arrange to pick them up free of shipping, at one of our shows:
2020 Beltaine Psychic Faire, April 30, 2022, at the Miami Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 8690 Yankee Street, Washington Township, Ohio, 45458. The show is 10-5 p.m.
Great Lakes Medieval Festival in Rock Creek, Ohio, during the weekends of their July-August run at our booth The Magical Box.
Or, catch us at the Wild Spirit Festival in September, https://wildspiritfestival.com/
Remember, each of our items is made one by one, with our own hands, using scrap and drop cuts of wood to help use resources as efficiently as possible. We're not a factory, we're not overseas, we're right here in Ohio, doing things the old-fashioned way.
