My first priority is to do all I can to make sure the item reaches you in a timely manner and unharmed. I will ship on the Saturday morning after I receive payment and will package items appropriately.
Glass and delicate items will be shipped in bubble wrap or with foam peanuts. Where possible, heavy items will be shipped via USPS Priority in Flat Rate boxes to cut shipping costs for you. Lastly, all of my shipping prices are estimates that I calculate right from USPS.com, plus a small amount for shipping materials.
In an attempt to make this process as green as possible, I will reuse boxes and packaging materials unless you specify otherwise.
Email is best if you want faster delivery options (I will have to change my shipping charge appropriately, of course). If you need it overnighted, email! I will reply as soon as I see it and let you know if it is possible or not.
Cancellation of purchases is possible if you contact me before I ship out the item (which will be done the Saturday morning after I receive payment). If the item has shipped already, it can be returned at your expense: I will refund original cost once I receive the returned item, but you will have to pay for original shipping and to ship it back to me.
Returns & exchanges
Items broken upon receipt: Upon your request, I will purchase delivery insurance through USPS. I follow their parameters for shipping items, so if an item is damaged when it gets to you, you will have to place a claim directly with USPS. You must request insurance at the time of purchase and I will bill you accordingly in order to be refunded *through USPS* for the broken item.
Their insurance costs are as follows:
Coverage Cost to Insure $0.01 to $50 $2.10 $50.01 to $100 $2.60 $100.01 to $200 $3.30
If upon receipt, you decide you do not want want the item, simply let me know. Mail it back to me, and upon receipt I will reimburse the item's cost, but not shipping fees.
