order will be processed in as timely a manner as possible and professionally packed. We ship items to virtually anywhere in the world, via the US Postal Service.
For both your protection and ours, we reserve the right to only ship credit card orders to the billing address associated with your credit card account. We will need you to contact us if you wish to ship to a different address.
Important insurance claim info: All
shipments are fully insured. We pack orders well because a broken item is as disappointing to us as it is to our customer! However, we cannot guarantee there will never be breakage in shipment. With this in mind, please note that the claims process can be
lengthy (several months may be involved, especially for international
purchases) and may require you to take the broken item/packaging to
your post office for confirmation of damage. If any customers are
unwilling/unable to agree to this claims procedure, they are welcome to
order a replacement piece if available, at their expense. (The claims process itself is described on the USPS.com website. Search for 'insurance claim' to access the information.)
US flat shipping rates for the contiguous
48 states and DC (for orders totaling up to $750.00) are based on the need to
accommodate flexible quantity purchases, piece size, and insurance coverage, and thus are determined by the price of the order. These
charges will come up automatically as
you proceed through the checkout
process. Please note: Because shipping prices continue to escalate, our default shipping method is Parcel Post in order to help keep your total costs at a minimum. This usually requires about a week of travel time. If you require a quicker arrival time, please inquire about expedited shipping (Priority Mail is 2-3 business days).
Puerto Rico, all international orders, and other
US orders exceeding a total of $750 will
require custom shipping to determine appropriate shipping/insurance
costs. These are determined based on weight, special packaging if necessary, destination, and insurance coverage
for the total dollar amount of
order, excluding applicable sales tax (to
Connecticut only). So, in such cases, you would put your selection in the cart and follow the purchasing process to the end, clicking on the Place Order button. (You may of course e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire what shipping charges to your destination would be before committing to a purchase as well.) We will pack the order, determine the shipping amount, and e-mail you with the shipping total. Once you confirm, we will either charge the balance or await your check or m.o., depending on your payment method.
NOTE: Any brokerage fees, or duty / taxes requested
by your country's customs officials are beyond the scope of our services/charges.
Any and all such fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
