Frequently asked questions about LifesAnExpedition

We ship within 3-5 business days of CLEARED payment. Paypal clears slightly faster than Etsy Payments. WE SHIP TO ADDRESS YOU PROVIDE IN CHECK-OUT. We use USPS 1st Class mail for orders up to 13 oz, which is most hand knit or sewn goods (5-7 days to arrive)... Priority Mail for orders over 16 oz (2-3 days to arrive)... Media Mail for books (1-2 weeks to arrive). These are estimates. Weather and holidays may cause delays, especially in December. To track Paypal orders, log into PP, select Payments Sent, find Life's an Expedition, click TRACK at right. International: your tracking # will come from an Etsy convo. More info below.
If you order from single or double skein listings and your shipping exceeds $13.99--AND if we can fit it into a medium flat rate box (up to16 to 22 yarns)--we rebate excess over $13.99. We process your rebate AFTER you pay, at the time that we pack your order. If you paid by Paypal, you get a rebate in your Paypal account. If you pay in any way other than Paypal, you get a coupon code for future purchases. NOTE: Rebates happen when you pile up your cart 1 or 2 skeins/balls of yarn at a time AND delivery is in the United States. "Destash yarn lots" of 10+ skeins are ALREADY discounted. NO rebates on yarn CONES or yarn CARDS.
If you order quite a few things, you could get a rebate, depending on what you order, how big the product is, how much the package weighs, whether we offered shipping rates below our actual cost to mail it to you, how far you are from Chicago, how much protective packaging is needed, whether or not it fits in a flat rate box, etc. Lots of variables, eh? That's why we cannot predict combined shipping fees in advance. The rebates are processed at the time of shipping. Over 99% of the rebates we give are for yarn, because that's where we get the largest and most complex orders. But please read the FAQ above this one!
Sometimes we include Canada, Australia and/or Europe, but not on every listing and not year-round. (We tend to include Canada in winter because those guys NEED our warmest winter goods.) International buyers are responsible for all customs fees, import taxes and VAT. Life's an Expedition is not responsible for fees or delays due to customs or shipping. We use 1st Class Mail when we can to save you money, but the tracking number won't tell you much and a package may take weeks to arrive, especially if it weighs under 4 lbs. Rebates on shipping might be issued on large orders. We sometimes add or subtract countries from listings, but that happens when we feel WE feel we can handle it, not upon request.
We only accept returns on clothing, as per instructions found in the clothing listings. Follow instructions exactly; we reserve the right to refuse refunds if you don't. If the listing doesn't specify information about returns, read the info carefully and think before ordering, as we do not accept returns on other merchandise. Why? Because no matter how careful you are, it will likely contain fragrance, cigarette smoke or pet hair, even if you're sure it won't. People in our home have severe allergies/asthma and can't handle such things. But if we messed up your order, please send us a calm, polite convo--thru Etsy, not email--within a few days of receipt, without leaving adverse feedback, and we will make things right.
Some people just glance at photos and rush to order. Please don't do that. Use the ZOOM under the photo and read listings carefully. If you are tall or plus-sized, don't expect a scarf or handbag strap to look the same on you as it does on our petite model. If you order something 4" wide, don't be shocked if it's 4" wide. No two people see or define color the same way and what you call forest green someone else will call blue-gray. (Yes, I'm serious.) Measure your head before ordering a hat; we test for size and it's in the listing; there's no such thing as one size fits all. Yarn gauges vary depending on how you knit. Softness is subjective; I've known people who made socks out of wool I thought was too coarse for a rug.
We don't offer wholesale arrangements, but we sometimes have sale or bulk merchandise that you are welcome to resell in a bricks and mortar shop. Do not list our goods on Etsy, though.
We send a tracking number without you asking. If you misplaced it, look at your order on Etsy. Or, if you paid by Paypal, log in, click on PAYMENTS SENT, find Life's an Expedition and click on TRACK on the far right. USPS sometimes isn't regularly updated...especially near holidays, so expect delays in December. Read the FAQs below this if you are getting impatient. (If you are outside the U.S. and your package is small, we sent you a tracking number via Etsy convo, but your package may take weeks or even a month to arrive, especially if it weighs less than 4 pounds.) And again, there will always be postal delays beyond our control when you order in December.
We ship to the address YOU gave at checkout, so doublecheck that first. But lost? No, it's more likely delayed. USPS tracking information is not comprehensive. Your package could be within a day of reaching you despite minimal tracking data. However, if the tracking # shows delivery, yet you have not seen the package, ask other residents at your address if they brought in the mail, look in the shrubs, etc. In our experience, when a tracking # shows arrival, the package DID arrive but someone forgot to tell you. If inquiries don't pan out, contact your post office and give them the tracking number we gave you. We've shipped over 100,000 packages since 2003 and while some were delayed, almost all arrived eventually. Expect delays in December.
Sorry. We do not negotiate prices, change listings, add photos, accept alternate payment, change shipping method or break up yarn destashes for you. We ship in the time frame and method stated, but if you order a lot of small merchandise that would ordinarily be shipped first class mail--and your total order exceeds 16 oz.--you are automatically upgraded to USPS Priority Mail. We will also ship a gift to another address without revealing the price you paid, but PLEASE type this other address in the SHIP TO space when you check out.
