What shipping methods do you use?
We ship via USPS - you may choose either Priority Mail (recommended), Parcel Post or Express Mail. Be advised that Parcel Post can take a while - as long as 9 business days, sometimes longer. Priority mail usually takes between 2 and 3 days after shipment - however, this is a post office estimate, not a guarantee. Priority Mail items may sometimes take a little longer than that. Express mail is guaranteed - but keep in mind we may not be in the same time zone as you.
If you need an item shipped overnight, its best to contact us first to find out how quickly the order can get put in the mail.
How do you pack your china?
All our china and breakables are packaged with great care. Items are properly padded and protected for their journey to you! We have been shipping breakables from bone china to chandeliers for many years with great success. Your purchase, no matter the dollar amount spent, will receive the attention needed to ensure its safe arrival.
I need my plate by this coming Tuesday (or other special date)
Please let us know if your purchase needs to be received by a certain date. We will do our best to accommodate you! Please keep in mind that while express mail options are guaranteed, priority mail is not. Priority is quite reliable and quick, however occasional items may be slow.
