US Shipping Policy - Online Orders (Updated February 12, 2024) - Orders under 1 pounds / under $300 shipping is $6, orders over 1 pound (under 5 pounds) / over $300 (under $600) shipping is $10, orders 5+ pounds / over $600 shipping is $15. We have the Tipping option on. We use Tipping for optional insurance; if you'd like your package to be insured, please "tip" $2.00. Please see our February Ramblings post to understand why we are doing this and how it works. 


30 Day Invoice Cancelation Policy - Online Orders (Added September 8, 2023) - We will no longer be reaching out beyond the Square final reminder - we will cancel your order as per that reminder unless you contact us. Fyi - Square automatically sends reminders on your due date and every seven days up until the final 30 day reminder, which let's you know you have 5 days or your order will be canceled.
