VanEss Expressions is ceasing all operations.
We will sell what little remains in our On Line Store , but then we are going to
re-think exactly what we want we want to do & how best to proceed in the future.
VanEss Expressions is a Ma & Pa operation - and we work full time 'regular' jobs.
We started VanEss Expressions because we love working with wood and creating
unique & original wood gifts and home decor items. But in the past few years - it has
started to totally consume our lives, and we have found it just impossible to keep up.
We hope to be back someday- but I don't know when.
We apologize for not responding to those who have recently sent in inquiries,
and our sincere apologies and 'Thanks' to our long time, devoted customers.
VanEss Expressions is a very small wood-working business; creating original & custom handmade wood wood gifts, home decor and home furnishings.
All items are individually & personally handcrafted by us in our Minneapolis Minnesota workshop. We do not import any products or materials. All of our wood gifts & home decor items are 100% hard-wood - 100% handMade in the USA.
We do not carry a large inventory, and since each item is unique, our in-stock items change often. The below links will take you to pages showing the types of wood gifts & home decor items made by VanEss Expressions.
To see the wooden gifts & home decor items currently available for immediate shipment, please go to our On-Line Store.

VanEss Expressions is all about Wood
All of our pieces are 100% solid hardwood ~ no pine, plywood, or laminates. We use a variety of wood stains & dyes to enhance the grain, to add color, or to match your current decor - but we never paint wood.
VanEss Expressions is all about Quality
Each item is individually & personally handcrafted by us ~ from the original design, to the selection of the wood, to the very last coat of varnish ~ one piece at a time. We do not import any products or material - every pieces is handmade in our workshope in Minneapolis Minnesota - 100% made in the USA.
VanEss Expressions is all about Customer Satisfaction
We stand behind our work and work with our customers. Most of our sales are from repeat business or referrals ~ and that's the way we like it.
