Gift Certificates


If you are ready to purchase a gift certificate, great!  If not, find details about them in the Q&As below.

Q.  Why should I buy gift certificates instead of purchasing the items from this site?

A.  If you know an animal lover but are not sure which breed or design they would prefer - or - perhaps a friend or family member loves lotion bars, lip balms and homemade soap, yet you don't know which fragrances are their favorites - or - want to give someone beautiful hand-painted pottery but want to let them pick the designs... send a gift certificate.  They can be used to purchase any item on this site.

Q.  Is there an expiration date on gift certificates; how soon must gift certificates be used?

A.  There is no expiration date; gift certificates can be used at any time.

Q.  What is the actual value of gift certificates?  Are there any fees subtracted from the face value?

A.  No, there are no maintenance fees and they do not lose value over time.

Q.  What if the total cost of a purchase is less than the value of the certificate?  Is the balance lost?

A.  No, the balance is not forfeited.  Unused balances can be applied to future purchases.

Q.  I have received more than one gift certificate for; can I combine them to make a purchase?

A.  Yes, multiple gift certificates can be redeemed on a single purchase if they are in the same currency.

Q.  Is there anything else I should know about gift certificates?

A.  The recipient must have or register for a PayPal account to redeem the gift certificate.

Q.  How to I apply the gift certificate to my purchase?

A.  To use a gift certificate, after filling your shopping cart, select PayPal as the payment option, then log-in to your account.  When prompted, enter your gift certificate redemption code and follow the last steps to redeem the gift certificate.

Q.  Can gift certificates be transferred to some else?  Can I give away a gift certificate I received from someone else?

A.  The answer is yes and no.  Printed gift certificates are transferable if they do not include a recipient email address.  For security and verification purposes, PayPal may require you verify your identity using a credit card, however, be assured Long Time Ago Farm does not receive the credit card information.

Q.  I have lost a gift certificate; can it be replaced?

A.  No, neither Long Time Ago Farm nor PayPal are responsible for lost or stolen gift certificates.  You should safeguard them as you would cash.

About Long Time Ago Farm


Q   Is there a store when I can come view all the items for sale on this website?

No.  LongTimeAgoFarm.com is a website created as a venue for artisans living in the Appalachian foothills of southeast, Ohio.  Most work out of their own homes or workshop and/or do not have the means the maintain their own website.  Having this site available to them means more time to focus on their art work and less overhead.  This site provides you with one-stop-shopping for items that would otherwise not be available online.


Long Time Ago Farm does exist; it is the Caito-Maxey family farm.  Its name was used for the website.  Click here to read About the Farm or Our Little Long Ears.


Q&As are being rewritten to improve the content.  In the meantime, please Contact Us if you have any questions.




Happily, I am so busy trying to keep this website updated, focusing on the artisans - Lis Smith, Louise Hawkins, Tina Wozniak and Susan Sherman - that I have neglected some parts of it, namely, this page and a few others.  Please excuse me; if you have any questions, feel free to call me at (740) 743-0099 or send an email to me at longtimeagofarm@yahoo.com.


In addition, having launched DonkeyHonk.com, I've been busy contacting people who provide goods and services to the people of southeast Ohio.  So, yes, I do still make the aprons, dolls and quilted items but do so by request or special order.  Thank you for your patience.  ----- Kimber
