I ship via USPS only. Insurance is optional on your end.I am not responsible for lost broken or stolen items. But in the 12 years I have been selling on the internet,I think I had one case of something missing. I pack things extrodinarily well,so breakage is not a concern,but possible on larger ceramic or glass pieces. I have a feedback of 5662 on eBay,so I have had a little practice.
