CURRENTLY NEARLY ALL PACKAGES ARE SHIPPING BY THE US POSTAL SYSTEM

SHIPPING RATES ARE BASED ON DOLLAR AMOUNT AND INCLUDE A NECESSARY SMALL AMOUNT FOR HANDLING AND SHIPPING SUPPLIES PLUS INSURANCE FOR DOMESTIC PACKAGES

The following rates are used as a guideline as we invoice*. However we reserve the right to charge appropriate rates depending on your order's overall box size, its weight and your location. Due to the ever-changing world of gas prices and that UPS and the USPS keep imposing more layers of complications for shippers, we need to be able to re-calculate rates as needed. Boxes now have the added complication of dimensional weight - we are charged more for a larger box even if it is lightweight (for instance, if you ordered stuffing, normally a lightweight low priced item, we would need to adjust the rates due to the size box required). This is as much frustrating for us as it is for you the customer having to pay high shipping costs. FYI my business strives to break even at the end of any year between what we have had to pay out to ship and what we charged you the customers to be shipped.

*IMPORTANT: As each package is shipped and we see the final shipping value, we will either credit you or debit you for discrepancies in shipping allowing for private insurance and handling to cover packing materials and overhead costs. (Example: For an average $100 domestic package, insurance and handling fees would be about $3.50 added to actual shipping costs).

Next Day & Second Day Shipping
Although we still ship many packages Next Day or Second Day, we are no longer quoting standard rates. Due to new rate policies it is better if we calculate each package individually. If you wish to know what these charges will be, email us requesting a quote before shipping. Otherwise, you may still select Next Day or Second Day shipping and we will ship as best we can.

**Alaska and Hawaii packages need to be calculated individually. Email if you wish to know what your shipping rate will be.

International Rates and How We Charge Your Order
It works best if we complete your order in two charges - one charge for the merchandise plus a base rate for anticipated shipping charge with a second charge for difference on actual shipping and packing rates, so you may find two charges on your credit card statement. This is because we often do not know what the exact shipping total will be until after the box is packed and has been paid for.

It is best to email, fax or call for estimated International Rates. International packages may be shipped by: First Class (no insurance available - your risk/max 4 lbs), Priority (6-10 bus days/insurance), Priority Express (3-5 bus days/insurance), Global Express (1-3 bus days/insurance).
If you choose to ship by a method where USPS insurance is unavailable, we will not be able to cover any losses.

We can weigh your intended order then tell you what the estimated charges will be. Please be patient if you are shipping internationally as the services are extremely complicated and the rules not followed consistently by the postal systems on both ends.
