Policies

Generally speaking, resins are available to order for only a set and limited time.  Bronzes are cast to order.  Please contact Lynn for current availability and pricing.

Sales and new sculpture updates  are announced through the newsletter (subscription sign-up is in the right hand column of this page, under “Let me tell you”).

Payment Methods

When items are available for sale, you may make your purchase with our shopping cart, which accepts PayPal payments. You may also use a credit card with this system even if you do not have a PayPal account.  If you’d like to spread out payments, consider PayPal’s “PayPal Credit” service.

Personal checks, Money Orders or Cashier’s Checks will be accepted for non-shopping cart sales.  Checks should be made out to Laf’n Bear LLC (my registered business name), and must clear your bank before a piece is shipped.

Please mail your check or money order to:

Laf’n Bear LLC, 2005 S. Columbus St., Boise, ID 83705-3511

I reserve the right to sell the piece to another person privately or offer it in public sale if at least an initial payment is not received within five (5) business days of the sale, unless otherwise specified.

Time Payments

Shipping

USPS and FedEx are our preferred carriers. International shipments will be declared on customs forms as merchandise with an accurate retail value. Taxes, tariffs or other associated fees are the sole responsibility of the purchaser.

Special shipping services, such as overnight, are available for additional fees.

Shipping fees are calculated per project. Please refer to information included in a sales listing.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

There will be a ten-day inspection period during which if you are not completely satisfied with your sculpture, you will be able to return it for a full refund, minus shipping charges.

The piece must be returned in good condition; shipped back to the Laf’n Bear LLC with the same high level of care in packing and handling which it was given in shipment to you.

In addition, a written statement must accompany it explaining why you are not satisfied with the piece. The policy is void if the sculpture is shown, resold, damaged or altered in any way within this period.
