We ship most items by USPS Priority Mail, USPS Parcel Post, or UPS Ground. Fragile items will be stuffed (to eliminate voids), wrapped in bubble wrap, and double boxed to assure the item arrives safely. Insurance is included in all of our listings and is included in the shipping charges.
PLEASE NOTE: I will ship using 1st Class International shipping to any country that my insurance company will cover under their policy. The countries that are excluded are as follows: Afghanistan, Angola, Bolivia, Brazil, Burma, Congo, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire), Liberia, Mexico (Truck/rail shipments to and within other than as a connecting conveyance), Nigeria, North Korea, Paraguay, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan or location that would be in violation of any U.S. economic or trade sanctions including OFAC Restricted Countries.
Please Note International Buyers: I offer a First Class International shipping option for my international buyers to help save you in postage when possible. In order to offer this service, I MUST ask you to wait for 45 days to file a claim for a lost package. This is the amount of time my insurance company demands based on the input from the United States Postal Service. My insurance company will not allow me to file a claim before this amount of time. They will not even start processing a claim before the 45 days. If you need your package before this amount of time has passed, please use Priority International shipping for your purchase. Remember that I offer this service for your benefit, and if it is abused I will need to remove this option.
