Welcome to Sleepy Hollow Prims. I am glad you stopped by. My art is primitive, painted to look old and worn. Each piece is custom and hand painted by me. These items are meant to be primitive and old looking. They might have some knots in the wood. That is intended and adds to the character of the piece. For USA Please allow between 4 and 14 business days for your item to be created before shipping. If your item will be shipped to Canada or international, please note that shipping takes 3 weeks or more AFTER shipment.
