Shipping of a pre-made item is typically by U.S. Mail within 1-3 business days after an order is placed. Custom orders take longer. Items are packaged carefully, but this Shop is not responsible for items damaged or lost by the good people of the U.S. Postal Service. I typically mail items First Class for the lower rate. If you are concerned about fast shipping, especially in December or weather delays, please upgrade to Priority Mail.
For combined shipping, sometimes the estimates can be wonky depending on the combination of items. If the difference is greater than $.75, I will refund the overage once I know the total weight. If the actual shipping is greater than quoted, then that's a tough business lesson for me. If you want a more specific shipping quote, just ask.
Please request insurance, delivery confirmation, express delivery, etc., before your purchase.
As for how long it will take for your item to arrive, I am at the mercy of the U.S. Postal Service like everyone else. Weather, postal holidays, grounded airplanes, December congestion and natural disasters are beyond my control.
A purchase can be cancelled prior to shipping, minus any fees incurred by Etsy, Paypal, etc. (if any). Shipping means the item is in the custody of the U.S. Postal Service.
Returns & exchanges
Refunds will be made for any reason within 30 days of purchase. Refund of purchase price minus shipping and Etsy/Paypal fees upon return of the item in sell-able condition.
