    When I was a girl I used to stay up late and read the classics way past bedtime. That love for stand-the-test-of-time stories continues to this day. There is something endearing and familiar about an old classic book on the shelf that says 'home'.

I ship packages out at least 2 times a week, Monday-Friday.

Books are shipped media mail. Other items are shipped first class or parcel post depending on weight. I often use recycled shipping materials if it works for individual orders.

Shipping cost is dependent on the size and weight of each individual book, some are heavy and weigh more than others. Please check individual listings for specific shipping details regarding that item ~ (if any).

International rates have gone way up and it is very expensive to mail books overseas as books can be heavy and there is no media mail rate.
Please understand that I get the exact cost for your book at the post office OR I can estimate the cost if you prefer not to wait, ~~ (this can be up to 20+ dollars for one book and much more for book bundle sets, unfortunately), ~~ and then I'll refund you any excess on the estimate once I have printed the shipping through Etsy (see more notes below regarding international shipping).
Refunds and Exchanges
Please let me know if there is an issue with your item - thank you!

Custom orders require a 1/2 down payment, which is non-refundable, and a final payment plus shipping. Once both payments have been made, the order will ship. Thanks!
Additional policies and FAQs
For those outside the U.S.

Shipping rates have gone up significantly as of January 31, 2013.

If you see something you'd like to buy, please contact me and I will let you know the shipping cost for your country after I have weighed your "package" at the post office. Keep in mind that books are heavy to mail overseas. I take each box to the post office to get the exact cost.

I love to ship to other countries, just ask! Thank you!
