I ship USPS 1st class mail, I send the package usually the day after you place an order. I provide tracking on ALL packages, and I insure antique beads (beads over 30 years old) and/or packages over $40.00 worth of items. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ !!!!!If you do not have the proper address in your Etsy shipping account OR in Paypal and the item is shipped to the wrong address--AND you do not notify me in time to intercept the package, I will be not be responsible for a refunding you your money!!!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If you pay above $2.50 in shipping overages, I refund the amount to your credit card immediately. Keep in mind the shipping amount also includes the packaging. If I can get a better rate I send the package "flat rate" through USPS.
We Accept PayPal, Etsy gift cards and Visa and Mastercard. If you pay through PayPal with a check, I send the package the minute the check clears. South Carolina residents will see a tax added to there purchase price.
Returns & exchanges
The bottom line is your happiness, If you aren't 100% happy regardless of the reason, immidiatly respond to me and I will replace/exchange your item or if needed will refund your purchase minus shipping, as sooon as the item is returned.
I am trying to solve the expense for overseas shipping. I don't like selling packages for below $10, only to have to charge someone, two to three times more for the shipping--It isn't fair to my overseas customers, due to the fact I may have something you can't find where you are, only to be gouged by the shipping, waiting for customs and the possibility of it never making it there...Give me time to solve this issue...and if there is something you see that you really would like to buy and it is less than the shipping fee, convo me and we will work on it together.
ADDITIONAL INFO :: **I REUSE PADDED ENVELOPES NOT BECAUSE I AM CHEAP---I DO THIS TO SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT--MY BUSINESS IS VERY VERY ECO FRIENDLY. **MANY OF THE BEADS THAT I SELL IN MY SHOP WERE HEADED FOR THE DUMPSTER/LANDFILLS. SO THERE ARE MANY HOURS INVOLVED IN REMOVING THE BEADS FROM WHAT THEY MAY BE ATTACHED TO, CLEANING, SORTING AND THEN SENDING ALL THE PARTS TO APPROPRIATE PLACES TO ESCAPE LANDFILLS. THE BEADS ARE CLEANED THOROUGHLY AND VERY GENTLY WITH VERY ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE CLEANING PRODUCTS...
