Domestic (U.S.) Shipping
We ship all of our orders via USPS, usually first class and sometimes Priority depending on the package's weight. We do not offer UPS or Fedex shipping. We don't offer expedited shipping, but we do ship two to three times per week, depending on the volume of orders, so you won't have to wait long to get your package. If the item you're ordering is a gift, please let us know that in the "add special instructions for your order" section during the checkout process.
All international shipments are sent via USPS first-class international mail (or Priority, depending on their weight) and are charged a higher shipping fee depending on the weight of items and the destination. International shipping fees have gone up in the past several years quite a bit. Shipping fees are added automatically when you place your order. Once items leave the U.S. they are not able to be tracked past their last location here. It is happening more and more often: You — especially if you are in the United Kingdom — may also be charged import taxes, customs fees, duties, or other charges by your home country when you receive the shipment; you are responsible for these. Unfortunately I can't control where, why, or how customs agents determine whether to charge you or not and, after shipping thousands of overseas packages through the years, there doesn't seem to be a lot of rhyme or reason to who gets charged. Please note that the USPS does not allow us to pay any taxes or fees for you on our end, prior to shipping. I mark all of my shipments "merchandise"; please don't ask me to mark them as gifts because it is illegal to do that, and I won't. Thank you!
