Shipping and Handling

UPSP Priority mail is our default shipping method.  Express shipping is available by request.  Shipping charges as noted are approximate for domestic shipping to the lower 48 States. If, due to size, weight and/or distance, additional postage is due we will send a PayPal invoice via email. Orders being sent to Alaska, Hawaii and all International orders will also be invoiced for any additional shipping & handling charges. The PayPal invoice can be paid electronically. Your package will ship after the invoice is paid. By placing an order, international customers agree to accept responsibility for loss or damage, since tracking and insurance is not always available for international shipments.

All international customers will receive an invoice for additional postage charges.

Because of the very high cost of shipping charges, we will generally wait until an order can be shipped complete, rather than having two or more shipments. This can cause longer delivery times, sometimes a month or more before your order is shipped. 

Unfortunately, a business like ours that carries so many handcrafted items may run into trouble with backorders. We share your frustration. Generally, orders will be held until they can be shipped complete unless you have specific instructions for us. For  instance, if you are willing to pay for extra shipments and certain item(s) are more urgently needed, would you like us to ship all possible and backorder the rest as a separate order? Or, ship all possible and cancel the balance? Perhaps the cost of shipping is irrelevant to you and you want multiple shipments sent as soon as the items become available, in which case multiple shipping charges will apply.
