We do not make money on shipping. Included in shipping is actual cost and shipping supplies for items such as bubble wrap, peanuts, boxes, padded envelopes. We do not charge a handling fee. If you want a breakdown of your shipping cost, we will be happy to supply it. We combine shipping whenever possible. If you are buying from our store and the combined rate seems high, the calculator is working from box size and weight. Email us and we will check the shipping quote.
We look for the best rate for you!
Shipping quoted in auctions and buy it now is for Continental US mail and shipping rates. If you are in Hawaii, Alaska or Puerto Rico email for shipping quote. If shipping is not quoted, please do not pay before shipping is included. I combine shipping on multiple items and look for the best rate for you. Please take into account that rates have gone up. We generally ship through FEDEX, USPS and UPS. Dishes usually through fedex ground and books through USPS media mail. If you have a carrier preference, let us know and we will ship according to your wishes. It may change your shipping rate.
INCLUDED IN ALL SHIPPING IS THE COST OF SHIPPING SUPPLIES TO PACK AND SHIP YOUR ITEM SECURELY! We take extra time to pack your items because we want them to arrive safely.
When shipping books, if you request insurance, insurance cost does not show on the shipping label. The book is fully insured. If you need proof that the item was insured, I can email a copy from Stamps.com.
International bidders will be given shipping rates to that specific country. I reserve the right to request shipping with tracking and signature on delivery which are often required by paypal for buyer and seller protection. These rates can be two to three times higher than priority shipping by USPS. Inquire before bidding if you are concerned about the rate.
Because of the new shipping requirements by ebay, the rate quoted in the auction is only an estimate. We try to include shipping calculators but sometimes they do not apply. For actual shipping, email before bidding.
