shipment information

We ship most orders within 1-5 business days, but our shop is small so please excuse us if we become overwhelmed and must take a little longer. Most domestic U.S. packages are shipped via USPS First Class Mail. Depending on where you live, your package will arrive 2 to 5 days after we ship it.

We use USPS First Class Mail International for international orders up to 4 pounds. Packages weighing more than 4 pounds are sent via USPS Priority or Express Mail International. Please keep customs in mind: Once we ship the package, time delays due to customs are out of our hands. If you are ordering internationally and time is a concern, email us at to discuss expedited shipping in advance. For import tax concerns: To comply with international shipping laws, we ship our packages marked with the customs CN 22 form that declares the contents as merchandise with its appropriate value. Any import taxes that customs may charge you are out of our hands and are part of importing goods from another country.

If you are interested in expedited shipping whether ordering domestically or internationally, please email us at or call us at 919-834-6260 to discuss it in advance.
