Many times these items are unintentionally sold as handcarved or Indian-made due to the overall look, weight, and detail. Although the pieces themselves are highly collected & have value they are not Inuit made but a Canadian company which makes Native Americana Reproductions for the upper end tourist market and galleries. I try my best to research all my items carefully, I believe this piece to date to late 1970s early 1980.

Without a Shipping Calculator here on Etsy, it can be nearly impossible to accurately predict shipping charges.
Packing Materials , box availability, postal changes, confirmations, weight , size, where you live , even the amount of tape used can affect the amount of postage charged.
To simplify this I base my shipping charges on general weight , size, and past prices paid for like items. Sometimes I am right on the money, sometimes I am off.
When I am off by more than $1.00 I will always refund that amount overcharged. Which means: If I charged you 6.10 for shipping, and that item shipped for 4.00- I will then refund 2.10 in Paypal- the exact amount of overcharge.
If, the items ships for more than I predicted I will never ask for more money from you because I believe that is my problem, not yours. In fact in all the time I have been doing this only 2 customers without being asked covered the difference.
I am a small, independent Vintage seller, not a shipping giant. I can not offer free shipping. Shipping to me is more than just simply dropping something in a box. I must purchase packing material & tape ( which are surprisingly expensive! ) , drive to the post office each morning before going to work, which means either late night of packing or waking up early as I always & whenever possible try to ship within 24 hours of your purchase.
If you want shipping over and above USPO 1st Class with Confirmation, like: Overnight or Priority then I will ask you to pay for that extra shipping.
I am just a regular gal, trying to do what I love and share that experience with other like minded people. I understand not everyone will read this or any of my policies, if you have ...thanks ,if you still have questions regarding my shipping please feel free to convo me.
