Shipping Costs


Shipping charges are based on your order's weight and the distance it's shipped. All orders ship from New Jersey, USA. Shipping is not a profit center for us. We package each box carefully using recycled and biodegradable packaging materials (whenever possible) to prevent breakage for these handcrafted products. We don’t even cover our shipping and packaging costs in most cases. Unlike many other online retailers, we cannot offer free shipping at lower thresholds. Many such retailers cover the shipping cost by charging you more for the products. We provide you the products at the best possible rate and provide you with reasonable shipping options. Shipping costs are calculated for your review during checkout.


Free Economy Shipping on orders over $125

Orders that qualify for free shipping are usually shipped Economy Rate. You may choose a different shipping method for an additional charge. Free shipping applies to the continental U.S. only (excluding HI, AK and other US territories). Please note that if you use a discount coupon code on your order, your order must be greater than $125.00 AFTER the discount has been applied in order to qualify for free shipping.

Economy Rate shipping is our most economical shipping option for shipping to residential addresses in the continental United States. It’s the method most often used for free shipping. Most orders will be delivered within 10 business days, but longer delays are possible. All shipments have a tracking number, so you can easily track your order online.

Your shipping address must accept both UPS and USPS deliveries in order to take advantage of this offer. If your shipping address accepts deliveries from only UPS or only USPS, you still have a choice to select that carrier and pay for the shipping. Appropriate shipping rates will be shown to you on the checkout page. If your shipped package returns back to us due to an incorrect shipping address, then you have the choice to pay the shipping to get your package reshipped to the correct address, or receive a refund minus the original shipping cost.
