Shop FAQ

I would like to place a custom order, or order more than what you have in your inventory. What do I do?
We are happy to discuss custom orders.  Contact us.

An item on the web site is out of stock, but I want to order one.  How do I go about doing that?
When stock items are sold out, we like to make several more at a time in order to replenish our inventory. Depending on our workload, sometimes this can take 30+ days. If you're interested in purchasing, or would like to know when that item is back in stock, just fill out our contact form, and we'll let you know!
*Out of stock clearance items do not apply.

What shipping carrier do you use?
We use either USPS or UPS for shipping.  If you prefer one over the other, please contact us to order. Additional shipping charges may apply.

I just purchased an item that was in stock from your website.  How long until it ships?
It can take 1-5 business days to package an order for shipment. Depending how far away you live, please plan for an additional 2-5 business days for the package to arrive at your door.  If you need expedited shipping, please contact us.  Additional fees will apply.

I ordered a custom product.  How long will it take to receive it?
Please allow 30 days for completion. (Does not include shipping time).

I paid for an order on your web site, and chose the store pickup option because I live nearby. How long do I have to pick up my item?
We will hold paid items for no longer than 30 days.  Please contact us if you feel you may miss that deadline, and we'll try to work with you.  Items that are not picked up within 30 days will automatically be refunded, and placed back in our inventory for sale to the next buyer.  We are open Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm.

My credit card was declined. What's going on?
