Thanks for visiting VanEss Expressions - a small Minnesota wood-working business creating original and custom, handcrafted wood gifts and home decor items. VanEss Expressions has been selling our wooden gifts and home decor on-line since July 2003. Beginning in 2009 we are totally re-organizing our website, and are in the process of adding our items to our 'On-Line Store'. If you do not find what you are looking for, please Contact Us to see what else we may have available. We are so sorry for this inconvienence, and appreciate your patience & support.
To see the original, handmade wood gifts and home decor items available for immediate shipment - please visit our 'On-Line Store' by clicking on the individual categories listed in the upper left menu. To see examples of the types of gifts & home decor items (clocks, boxes, vases & bowls, etc) we have made in the past, please check out our Gallery pages.
VanEss Expressions is all about wood - wood gifts & wood home decor - wood desk & mantle clocks, wood vases & bowls, decorative wooden boxes, wood candle holders, wooden wall clocks & decor, wood holiday nut bowls, wooden furniture & home furnishings (see below) and more. All of our gifts & decor items are our own original designs ~ personally handcrafted by VanEss Expressions, in Minneapolis Minnesota, USA. We do not import any products or materials, we do not sell items made by others, and our items are only available through VanEss Expressions.
100% Solid Wood - 100% Handmade in the USA
Handcrafted Wood Gifts & Home Decor
All of the wood gifts and home decor items shown in our On-Line Store are individually handmade, one-of-a-kind. That's what makes them unique and special. Even though there are items based on a similar design - no two are exactly the same, nor can you order quantities of an item. If you are looking for off-the-shelf gifts or a home decor item you've seen somewhere else, this is not the site for you. But if you are looking for truly unique wood gifts and original handcrafted home decor - we hope you find it here. We try to keep a variety of unusual handcrafted gifts & home decor designs in stock, and add new items monthly; but if you do not find what you are looking for, please contact us.
Handmade Wood Furniture & Home Furnishings
We do make some furniture and larger home furnishings, but these are only available in the Minneapolis area, and are typically custom orders. We also display some of our larger furniture items a local Art Fairs. If you live in, or are visiting the Twin Cities, please contact us regarding home furnishings & furniture pieces.
Custom Wooden Gifts & Home Decor
We may accept custom orders for gifts, home decor items, and possibly larger furniture pieces. But remember, we are a very small wood-working business, individually and personally handcrafting each piece we sell. We cannot compete with larger manufacturing companies for price or time. But if you are looking for a truly unique wood item, and it appears to be similar to the gifts and home decor items we make, please contact us.
