Please note that shipments from the United States to other countries may involve taxes, import duties, customs-related fees, or other charges beyond our control for which the recipient is responsible.

How quickly will you ship my order?

I want you to have your order as quickly as possible, so my studio is fully stocked. My goal is to send your order from my studio gallery to your house the next business day after I receive your order.

Backordered Items

Some products are out of stock and backordered. In this case, the backordered items will ship as soon as they become available, and you will not be charged until the item ships. If an item on your order is on backorder, you will be notified by e-mail within 24 hours. If the backordered item is part of a larger order and a significant part of the order is in stock then we will split the order, ship what we have and backorder the out of stock portion of your order. You will not be charged any additional shipping for split orders.

How soon will I receive my order?

In general, your shipment will usually arrive between two and eight business days after you place your order, depending on where you live.

How will I know what my tax rate is?

If you live in or will have your order shipped to Maine, we are required to charge you the standard Maine sales tax of 5.5% on your purchase.
