All shipments are either USPS First Class or USPS Priority Mail, whichever is most economical and/or speedy. If there is a substantial difference in price v. speed, I will choose the least expensive option.
All DOMESTIC (USA) shipments include tracking and insurance. INTERNATIONAL shipments may include insurance, certificate of mailing and return receipt services, as available and appropriate.
COMBINED SHIPPING: I am happy to combine shipping. If you order more than two or three items, especially books, combined shipping may be more economical. I will pack your order as efficiently as safely possible to keep the cost down. If the shipping charge that you paid is more than $1.00 over the actual shipping cost, I will refund the overage to you.
TO INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Depending on your location and the mailing option used, it may take up to several weeks for your order to reach you. You are the expert on the Customs laws and requirements at your own location. Knowing this information ahead of time will help you to alleviate any unexpected surprises or glitches in receiving your order. Any customs duty tax, VAT and other import fees and tax are your responsibility, as the buyer.
NOTE: Zero ($00.00) shipping cost means that shipping is not available for that item. Antiques for sale in this shop are available for local pick up or delivery only.
I accept credit cards and Etsy gift certificates. Sales tax will be added to orders shipped to Washington state. State law requires me to calculate sales tax on the shipping charge as well as on the items purchased. If you are ordering from Washington state, please contact me before completing your order, so that we can determine the exact amount of the sales tax. Thanks!
Returns & exchanges
I am not set up to receive returned merchandise. Items in my shop are described in careful detail, as far as color, size, fabric content, washing instructions, etc. With all of that said, I am willing to work with you to make sure you are happy with your Clarabelle shopping experience. If you feel that your purchase is not as described and portrayed on the shop listing, please contact me within 3 days of receipt of your order, so that we can determine the best course of action. If, in this case by case determination, a return is agreed upon, you are responsible for the return shipping cost. Thank you!
LOCAL DELIVERY ONLY FOR ANTIQUES: Zero ($00.00) shipping cost means that shipping is not available for that item. Antiques for sale in this shop are available for local pick up or delivery only.
