Shipping is required to get the items from me to you. I ship by the most economical method practical for the item purchased, which is typically conventional mail (USPS).

Quoted shipping rates are only estimates. I will contact you if additional funds are required to ship your order.

Domestic Orders USPS: Shipping is the by the most economical method, generally first class, 3 days. Orders over 4 lbs will be sent priority mail. All shipments will include a tracking number.

International Orders: You must have a confirmed address or your shipping will be delayed until this is complete. I need your phone number for the customs form! Shipping is very expensive overseas and I cannot track items unless you pay extra. Please contact me for a price.

I recycle-reduce-reuse packaging supplies, it's better for the earth!

Kind Regards, Kara
