I strive to ship your order as quickly as we can, but because we are a very small company, please understand that it might take up to a week to ship your order.
Please understand that sometimes we may experience delays in shipping if we run out of a product and need to make up more. This occasional inconvenience just guarantees that our products are always extremely fresh :-)
All orders are shipped via US Postal Service Mon-Fri.
(We are closed Friday afternoons after mail pick-up as well as Saturday & Sunday)
- Standard Mail / Priority Mail - I call this as "Standard Mail". This is NOT Express or Expedited. Priority Mail is just what the Postal Service calls it's standard mail delivery option. ONCE SHIPPED, packages are delivered in an average of 2-3 days (though this is not guaranteed).
- I do not offer Parcel Post any longer because it always ends up costing more than Priority Mail.
- Flat Rate Priority Mail: Some select items may also be shipping in Flat Rate Priority Mail boxes. Due to the nature of the way our shopping cart processes orders, I cannot offer Flat Rate shipping on all of my products. If I can fit your order in a Flat Rate box to save the customer at least $2.00 on shipping, I do and refund the savings on shipping
Shipping charges are calculated weight/shipping zone. We ship from Michigan, USA.
NOTE ON SHIPPING CHARGES:
Occasionally the shipping cost shown by the cart is incorrect (overly high), here is why:
When my cart asks the USPS web site what the shipping charge should be and the USPS site "fails"/doesn't respond (which happens on occasion and there is nothing I can do about it) my cart defaults to calculating the shipping at 25% of the total cost of the order. If there is a gross over-miscalculation on the shipping cost by my cart, I always rectify it when I print the shipping labels and refund the customer for the overcharge.
NOTE ON FLAT RATE BOXES:
I cannot offer Flat Rate on everything because it is impossible to program a shopping cart to know how much will fit in what box for every order. If I see that an order will fit in a Flat Rate box and save the customer on shipping costs, I will put the order in a Flat Rate box and refund the customer for the saving on shipping.
We will ship to Canada and many other countries. If your country in not listed in my shopping cart, contact me and I will add it.
We do not ship to Australia due to their strict customs regulations.
