Sticks Handmade Orders CLOSED for Delivery by Christmas 0

First of all, we just want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your sales Black Friday and Cyber Monday supporting small business and handmade! ❤️


We hate to be the bearer of bad news but Sticks Handmade can no longer be made to order and arrive in time for Christmas. ☹️  This is for any product that notes it "ships in 3 to 6 weeks" in the item's description.  We MAY be able to rush something through though, so if you're interested please give us a call asap!!  Let us know what product you're interested in and where we'll be shipping it to, and we'll let you know if we need to charge a rush fee and/or look into expedited shipping.


The GREAT news is, we have a lot of other options that can arrive in time for the holidays!!  

1. Handmade holiday sculptures already handcrafted and ready to ship


2. Our Sincerely, Sticks line is all inventoried and we have a HUGE selection to choose from



3. This also include our NEW Sincerely, Sticks stockings and Clearly Sincerely, Sticks drinking glasses!!



4. Denali blankets with Sticks designs ship directly from their warehouse


5. Our 2019 paper calendars are mailed within a few business days


6.  Along with lots of other printed goods we have hanging out on our shelves like posters and greeting cards



7. Our one of a kind ROOTS Collection that features true collector pieces


8. And last but not least, Clearance - overstock items at lucky discount


We hope this helps your holiday shopping situation, but as always feel free to shoot us an email at or give us a call at (877)678-4257 and we'd be happy to help!

All our best,

Your Friends at Sticks

Sticks Handmade Holiday Order Cutoff - End of Day Cyber Monday! 0

We're here with our final announcement for all you handmade holiday shoppers!



The LAST day to order Sticks Handmade that is yet to be created and guarantee to have it arrive BY Christmas (meaning we promise the day before at the latest but could arrive sooner) is Cyber Monday, end of Day - November 26th!!

Any orders placed after November the 26th will arrive after Christmas UNLESS you contact us to arrange rush production and expedited shipping IF we can take on the extra work.  If so, extra fees will apply to push your order to the front of the line.  We're not machines but we are working a lot of overtime - we need adequate time to create your handmade treasures from scratch. 

Unfortunately I can already tell you if you've been eyeing large furniture for the holidays, you're probably out of luck.  But give us a call to discuss what you're interested in and where we'd be shipping it to, and maybe we can work some Christmas magic!

So please, get your orders in to your favorite Sticks retailer near you or with us directly SOOOOONNNN.  We KNOW getting a deal on Cyber Monday is a tempting reason to wait, but if having your Sticks in hand as soon as possible is more of a concern, we can't stress enough how you need to place your order BEFORE the madness of Cyber Monday.  It's plausible orders placed that day could arrive on Christmas Eve when you'd like to leave town.



The GREAT news is after Cyber Monday you still have options to get Sticks in time for the holidays!!


We're here to help if you have any questions!  

-Your friends at Sticks
