USPS is my first shipping choice; UPS if the item is too large for the Post Office.
My shipping 'estimates' are just that! I generally use Priority Flat Rate boxes to figure this, but of course not everything fits in them.~ ~It is hard to determine cost without a destination, so please feel free to inquire if you are interested in an item, and I can check on your zip code! On larger boxes I am using a California zipcode, so don't be alarmed -- ASK!!~~
**I WILL AUTOMATICALLY REFUND YOU ANY AMOUNT (*above $2) OVER THE ACTUAL SHIPPING COST. ** *Amounts of $2.00 or less will be considered to cover packing materials.
And of course, if you buy multiple items from me, I will pack them together to save on shipping!! I am NOT trying to make a buck on your shipping charges.
>>If you DO NOT want me to ship your item PARCEL POST (if if happens to be cheapest method) please let me know!<< Obviously, some folks WANT it sent Priority Mail.
I do not list a different "shipped with another item" price, because this depends on what items you are ordering together. Two large items of a decent weight may not offer much discount in reality, especially if you want them sent Priority Mail. Again, I will refund excess overcharges as stated above.
FYI: I add 1 lb. onto the actual weight of items for my 'shipping weight', which is generally what a box will weigh. I try to remember to put this in every listing.This, of course, only matters if I am NOT using Priority Mail Flat Rate.
I do my best to ship within 1-2 business days, barring illness or the rare vacation.
+++++At this time I do not feel comfortable shipping large breakable items outside of the USA.+++++
REMEMBER, WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK!
Returns & exchanges
I will refund broken items after receiving photo evidence of the damages.
I do my best to clearly describe all items in the listing, and take thorough photos, so please look at them closely. I will always do my best to mention & photograph any chips or obvious blemishes that I notice.
