SHIPPING

Shipping Methods / Rates 

  • All our Shops and Galleries ship via USPS to the USA. 
  • USPS automatically calculates our shipping rates by the total weight of a packaged order, no matter how many products are shipped together in a single package. 
    Time Estimates 
    • Our processing times may vary depending on the nature of the order.
      • Ready to Ship items are usually in our outgoing mail within 1 to 2 business days.
      • Made to Order products may require from 3 to 6 business days to create and process.
      • When your order ships, you will receive an e-mail notification with a tracking number.
    • Delivery times depend on the distance to your destination from our zip code - 04616 - and the speed of the USPS. For time estimates and order tracking, please visit http://www.USPS.com. Please keep in mind that once your package is in the hands of the post office, we have no control over the speed of delivery.
      • Generally speaking, Priority and First Class Mail should be delivered within 3 days.
      • Holidays and other high volume times may take longer to arrive.
      • USPS COVID19 precautions may delay deliveries as well.

    Have a question or need more information? Please contact us, and we'll get right back to you.

    Thank you.
