Since we opened 35+ years ago, we have charged our customers only what UPS or US Mail have charged us to send your shipment. A number of years ago, we started adding $1.00 to each shipment to cover the ever increasing costs of shipping supplies (tape, boxes, mailing envelopes, etc.)

If you do not have a special way you want us to ship your order, please let us choose the method - click on the “Best Way”. So many times we have had to call a customer who marked “UPS” for a couple of bits or burs that would cost them $10+ for shipping, when we could send them for less than $4 by US Mail. Shipping charges have increased substantially the past couple of years, especially UPS 3 Day, 2nd Day and Next Day Air. If you need any of those three services, let us quote you a price. Mark in the "Comments" section that you want a quote before shipping.

Note: As we will be knowing the correct shipping charges only after packing - you will see 2 separate charges on your credit card (one for the Merchandise and another for Shipping). This will save you money, as we are not charging a blanket estimated shipping charge at the point of checkout like other stores.

There still is no minimum order. You can order a single pair of bird eyes or a ruby carver or whatever. We will ship that pair of eyes in a small mailing envelope for $2.32 postage + $1.00 which is much less than paying $6.95, $7.95 or $8.95+ minimum shipping charges that so many of our competitors have. If an order is $150.00+, we generally ship UPS because it can be tracked and insured should something happen to the package.
