Our default domestic shipping method is either USPS Priority Mail or UPS Ground with Signature Required on items valued over $1,000, depending on the cost. Our default international shipping carrier is USPS Priority Express International (the most reliable option providing a tracking number). We can ship Priority Mail International at the buyer's request. Shipping costs include packing materials and insurance costs. Packing materials may include: box/boxes, bubble wrap, packing foam, packing peanuts, tissue paper, tape, etc. We do not charge a handling fee.
Shipping Time:Items are generally shipped out within 1-2 Business Days from the receipt/ clearing of payment. Domestic orders should arrive in 1-5 business days. We will provide a tracking number as confirmation as soon as your item is shipped.
Special Requests:If you need an item shipped to meet a specific schedule due to an event or traveling plans, please contact us and we will try to accommodate to the best of our ability.
We are happy to combine shipping/packing for customers who purchase multiple items (when possible).
Due to the value and nature of our inventory we require that all items shipped internationally be mailed using a mail service providing tracking information as well as insurance. As USPS Airmail Parcel Post provides neither tracking numbers nor insurance, we will not ship by this means under any circumstance.
Due to international shipping regulations we are not allowed to designate any item as a "gift" or mark the value of the item less than the actual cost of the item when it was sold at auction. However, at the customers request we will be happy to highlight any item as an "antique" or “"100+ years old" if this is in fact true.
