All returns must be made within 30 days of purchase. Money is returned as follows: if purchased with a credit card, returned to your credit card; purchased by cash or check, a check will be mailed to you within two weeks. All of the previous circumstances are only valid if the original receipt is produced. If the original receipt is not present, you will be issued a Credit Memo (store credit) that never expires, which is also an alternative to any of the other options when you do have a receipt. We also offer gift receipts with items. Gift receipts can be presented for a Credit Memo. Sale items may not be returned.


While we do pride ourselves on selling the finest American crafts, we understand that accidents do happen and nobody’s perfect. As a service to our customers, we will attempt to find a solution to your repair concern depending on your needs and those of the artist. We do not do repairs on the premises. For more information please contact Brenda: call 330.253.6268.

As for the work of Don Drumm, it typically never needs repair, but if necessary, you can try submerging the aluminum piece in boiling water with one tablespoon cream of tartar. If that doesn't work, or if it simply needs to be refinished, you can bring it into the gallery and we can refinish it for you. This can cost anywhere from $25 - $50 depending on the size of the piece and the extent of the damage.


Online Orders: there is a $4.00 packing charge plus shipping costs that will be added to the total on all orders. Orders being shipped to an address within Ohio will incur a sales tax. UPS is our shipping method.

Freight Items: Some items are too large to be shipped via UPS, in which case we will ship them to you through a freight company of our choice in suitable packaging. The prices vary depending on the item's size and weight.

International: We do not ship internationally due to the exorbitant costs as a result of brokers fee and the like. We are more than happy to prepare the item for shipping with the above packing charge and then you can simply send it through the USPS.


A favorite treat at our gallery is the inventive complimentary gift wrapping by our sales staff. A combination of a signature Don Drumm bag, colorful tissue paper and an array of ribbons make opening the gift even more exciting. A message is welcome on a gift tag tied to the outside of every package.
