We ship orders within 3 business days.  See below for estimated transit times

// Domestic orders (USA):

All Domestic orders ship via USPS First Class (3-5 business days) or Priority Mail (1-3 business days).  
We at times use UPS ground for larger orders (3-5 business days).  If you choose UPS when checking out, please keep in mind that UPS does not deliver to P.O. Boxes.


// International Orders:

All international orders ship via USPS First Class International (2-4 weeks) or USPS Priority Mail International (2-4 weeks). Please read important information about shipping internationally below.


USPS First Class International
This is the cheapest shipping option we can offer for international shipping. This option does not, however, provide an international tracking # or insurance. There is no guarantee that your order will not get lost in transit and we cannot reimburse you if the order is lost. Having said this, packages usually make it to their destination.  We will provide a tracking # for the order but this # will only track the package within the USA.

USPS Priority Mail International
This option comes with insurance and an international tracking #.  Choosing this option allows us to reimburse you or ship a new package in the rare instance that your order may be lost in transit.  


// Wrong address or lost package?

In the rare instance that your package is lost, we will ship out a new package to you as soon as possible unless the package was lost under these circumstances:

Customer provided a wrong shipping address.  
If you provided us with a wrong address, and the package was lost or returned to us, we will reship it but will ask that you cover the additional shipping charges.  
If the package is delivered to the address you selected when checking out, we are unable to reimburse you.

Customer chose USPS First Class International 
We offer this option for international orders as this is the most affordable option for shipping our products to you.  Unfortunately, this option does not include insurance or international tracking and we cannot be held responsible if you package is lost in transit.  




Returns/Exchanges

We do not accept returns/exchanges. Orders can be canceled or modified only if they have not yet been processed for shipping.  Do to the nature of our products (freshly handmade!), all sales are final. If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact us within 30 days of your purchase and we will try to make you happy again! We occasionally offer credit to our store. Shipping charges are always non-refundable.
