Handmade item disclaimer: Due to the handmade nature of our art & gift items there may be slight variations in multiple versions of the same item. Computer screens also contribute to displaying slight differences in color.
On most of our product pages you will find an option to add gift wrapping for that item. Here and there you will find products we are not able to offer the gift wrapping service. This is due to the type (example: greeting cards), size of a product or that it is being shipped directly by the artist.
Special Orders & Product Requests
If you wish to purchase a large quantity of any of our items or would like us to research the possibility of obtaining items you don’t see offered on the site, please ask. We will do our best to fulfill your order needs. With some of our artists there is the option of requesting custom pieces. You may make your request through the Contact Us page.

This includes our Dancing Woman logo. We had a vision of a woman who sits firmly in her body, moves with grace & delight and wears the sassy & self affirming color of red. The image of a woman we hope any woman can relate to in some aspect of herself. Our graphic designer, Annie Danberg, did an exquisite job of translating our vision into a gorgeous drawing.
Ani Yaffa, LLC: Just in case you were wondering what the name of our LLC (Limited Liability Co.) is all about – the words are Hebrew and translate to “I Am Beautiful!”
