Ordering Policy

At this time the only method of payment we accept for using your credit card is PayPal. If you are not currently registered with Paypal, setup only takes a few moments. Paypal also allows you to pay through withdrawal from your checking account. Unfortunately, until your checking account is verified through Paypal this can be a slower method, sometimes requiring extra time for funds transfer to complete.

We will accept money orders or personal checks. This method of payment requires extra time as is necessary for checks to clear account before shipping can be done. Therefore, it is very important that checks be writtten out to the correct payee. Please contact us if you wish to purchase an item and pay using this method.

We work very hard to fill orders as quickly as possible. However, since our products are handmade it can take from 1-2 weeks for delivery of your order. Should more time be required for large items or special orders you will be notified.

If you have an important deadline and want to make sure that your order is going to ship and be received by you in time please contact us before you place your order so that we can let you know if we can meet your deadline. Every effort will be made to ensure you get your ordered item(s) when you need them. Please also see our Special Orders section as other options are available by special request.

Our shipping charge is approximate depending on the size and weight of each item.

About PayPal

We have chosen PayPal as our method of credit card processing because it offers strong protections for both parties.

If you do not have a PayPal account you can set one up for free in just a matter of minutes.. For more information or for setting up a PayPal account visit the PayPal web site at http://www.paypal.com. If you wish to set up an account using your checking account as well, once PayPal has verified your checking account, purchasing items is just as quick as using a credit card. Again, there is no charge for setting up a PayPal account.

If you wish to place an order using PayPal and don't currently have an existing PayPal account you will have an opportunity to setup an account during the ordering process.
