Please consider ordering early this year for the holidays. We're already experiencing delays with the US Postal Service and cannot guarantee delivery within the usual time frame. Unless notified otherwise, your order will leave our facility in a timely manner - usually the next business day, but we cannot guarantee a specific delivery date using USPS.
For orders required by a certain date, your best options are UPS 3 Day Select, 2nd Day Air or Next Day Air.
Many products may be out of stock for an extended amount of time, as many of our international contacts are not able to harvest or export due to COVID. If there's an item you're seeking, we're happy to put you on a waiting list.
United States shipping:
Our shipping rates are calculated based on distance, weight & carrier, shipping from zip code 08204. Shipping quotes are provided by the carrier, either the US Postal Service Priority Mail or UPS.
