Your package will be ready to ship within 3-5 business days ordinarily, but please allow a couple of extra days in case of bad weather, illness, or an unexpectedly busy day. It is generally recommended that you allow 2 weeks when ordering anything online. If you have a special need for something faster, please write or call and we'll try to bump you to the top of the queue.
Please understand this is a small family business and hard as we try to get every order out as quickly as possible, there are times when the orders pile up and we just can't get to everyone in one day.
Note also that some products are made-to-order or special order and these will be prepared for shipment within 1-2 weeks of your purchase. See individual product details for availability.
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT 1/2/3-day services: If you choose a faster shipping option such as FedEx 2-day, this does not mean you will receive your package in 2 days. It is physically impossible most days for us to get your order shipped out the same day or next. Although we do note the urgency and put your order at the top of the queue, please allow a couple of days for us to ship it out. Shipping times are in-transit times only, from the time the package leaves our hands, NOT from the time you place your order.
We can ship anywhere USPS will go! However, tracking and insurance are NOT AVAILABLE through First Class Mail service. In order to keep shipping prices low, your package will not be insured and no one will be able to track its whereabouts should it become lost.
Although there are rarely any issues with First Class Mail, occasionally some packages do get lost in the cracks, or a customs inspector may not get everything back into the box after inspection. In times like these, insurance would cover losses and tracking would tell you where your package was last entered into the system.
For the most secure shipping, please choose PRIORITY or EXPRESS for complete tracking and insurance. It costs a bit more, but it is worth getting your package quickly and safely - delivery often in days instead of months.
