I usually ship same day once payment is received, except for Sunday. Most items are shipped USPS first class with a confirmation number if applicable.

I have had to raise my shipping prices for international sales, excluding Canada, due to the Post Office increase that more than doubled shipping cost for international packages. It would be most cost effective to bundle sales, so let me know so I can let you know the exact shipping rate for international.

I will do returns on certain items depending on the circumstance for the return, you must pay the return postage.

If you are not satisfied for whatever reason just email me and I am sure we can work something out. You come first in my business. Love my customers!

And, if you have any questions about any of the items, please feel free to contact me, I love hearing from my customers.
