Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Which carrier(s) do you use for shipments?

A: We use both UPS and USPS for deliveries of smaller items, and frieght companies vary with larger items.

Q:Do you take returns on items even when it's my mistake?

A: Yes, we will take returns on items you have mistakenly purchased, but there is a 20% restocking fee to cover fees incurred for the sale, and return shipping is the buyer's responsibility. Items returned should be in the same condition they were sent.

Q:Can I get discounted shipping?

A: Multiple items purchased together do get a discounted shipping rate which is automatically figured by Amazon. Many of our products are priced in total ( item cost + shipping to reflect total we need for cost and shipping of product) as Amazon sets shipping costs (usually much higher than needed-so we offset by lowering our price) that we cannot change, especially on small items.
