Shipping Policy


FREE Shipping with Exceptions

During the Covid-19 Epidemic all major shipping sources like FEDEX, UPS and USPS increased their shipping costs because the manpower shortage. So, now that it basically over, we’re still waiting for USPS prices to come down if they ever will. So, until that happens, we had to start charging our Alaska and Hawaii customers the actual USPS shipping costs which is almost double the price. We had to make a choice, add actual shipping cost to AK/HI orders OR not sell to those states at all OR increase my prices which I don’t want to do. So, we decided to just add the actual shipping costs. The rest of the US States are provided FREE SHIPPING. Hopefully the economy will improve in the near future and return to normal shipping.

Shipment Processing Time

All orders are processed within 3 to 5 business days. Most of my items are drop shipped so my suppliers will be handling the packaging and shipping your order. Orders are not processed on weekends or holidays. IF an order is placed on Friday past 12 noon, processing will not begin until the following next business day which is either the following Monday unless a holiday falls on that day then on Tuesday. 

During a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed. Please allow additional days in transit for delivery. If there will be a significant delay in shipment of your order, we will contact you via email or telephone.

My suppliers will not ship to the US Territories such as Guam, Puerto Rico, Samoa and the US Virgin Islands. And that includes the Armed Forces (AA, AE & AP).
