Orders will be shipped by the least expensive method with USPS unless the customer requests and is willing to pay the costs of other shipping options. The post office in my area is closed on Saturdays and Sundays and my shop is closed on Mondays. Orders received after Friday 5 pm will be shipped on the following Tuesday morning for this reason. Shipments within the U.S. automatically includes $50 insurance and tracking. Additional insurance may be requested at the time of placing an order and added to the cost. I send everything 1st class (the least expensive) unless you request otherwise. Shipping and handling fees will often be a "small box flat rate" of $7 if the item is fairly heavy and I think it is the most economical way to send it. If you want insurance, signature required or additional insurance or other additional shipping service, please be sure to let me know when you order and before I ship so we can figure the actual cost. Tracking and/or insurance is not available on international 1st class. I can provide a photo of the postal receipt but I cannot guarantee delivery unless you want to pay the huge cost of international extra services. Please contact me before your purchase if you want insurance or tracking or registered shipping.
I accept payment over 3 months with prior arrangement with the understanding that money received will not be refunded if the buyer does not complete the agreement.
