We want to be transparent about our shipping costs.  We have learned a lot over the past ~2 years in this business as it relates to shipping but there is so much more for us to learn!  In order to try to bring the best value to our customers, we have painstakingly calculated costs across the country for various sample addresses and various product groups, sizes, weights, and shipping services all through USPS as this is where we feel the best value is.  To that end, our shipping is not automatically calculated; it is all manual entry and there is room for human error.  If you are seeing a shipping cost that just doesn't seem correct, please send us an email, whatsapp, or give us a call and we will gladly look into it.  Understand, however, that we are not Amazon or Facebook and do not have discounts in mass numbers like these megastores do.  We are paying regular retail rates at the local Post Office.  


Here is the spreadsheet we have used to calculate our shipping costs, again, in full transparency.

 

To explain the shipping categories you will see:

 

Ground Shipping

This is typically the cheapest option.  We source our own box and, therefore, we are adding $1.50 to the USPS-calculated price on their website.  The USPS advertises a 2-5 day shipping but we are calling this 5-7 days to be safe.

 

Priority Shipping

This is typically the middle-of-the-road option in terms of cost.  Again, we need to provide a box and are adding $1.50 to the USPS-calculated price on their website.  The USPS advertises 1, 2, or 3 day shipping depending on location (we ship from Pennsylvania so obviously California would be closed to the 3 day range).  Again, to be safe, we are calling it 3-5 days.

 

Priority Express Shipping

This is the most expensive option but is good if you are in a rush.  As with the prior two options, we will need to provide a box and are adding $1.50 for that.  The USPS advertises next day to 2 day and, to be safe, we will call it 2-3 days.  As the USPS defines this, they guarantee if the item is shipped by 6PM.  If you are truly in a rush and wish to spend the extra money to expedite, please reach out to us first to confirm that we can get the item to the post office in time to meet your timeframe.

 

Padded Envelope Flat Rate Priority

There are certain items that we sell that might fit in the padded envelope.  For example, some of the smaller purses, sandals, or jewelry.  This is a flat rate no matter where in the US the item is going.  USPS advertises 1-3 business days but, to be safe, we are calling it 3-5 days.  This rate is not shown in our checkout as it does not apply to each product group.  Cost is typically between the priority and express shipping costs.  If you would like for us to investigate this cost for you, please send your address and we will do so.

 

Padded Envelope Flat Rate Priority Express

This is the expedited envelope above.  USPS advertises next day to 2 days and, to be safe, we will call it 2-3 days.  This rate is not shown in our checkout as it does not apply to each product group.  Cost is typically between the priority and express shipping costs.  If you would like for us to investigate this cost for you, please send your address and we will do so.

 

Small Flat Rate Priority

Jewelry (if you prefer a box instead of an envelope) and blouses fit perfectly into the USPS-provided small flat rate boxes.  As with the prior flat rate categories, we will be calling it 3-5 days.  This rate is not shown in our checkout as it does not apply to each product group.  Cost is typically between the priority and express shipping costs.  If you would like for us to investigate this cost for you, please send your address and we will do so.

 

Medium Flat Rate Priority

Our shoes and jackets fit perfectly into the medium flat rate boxes by the USPS.  As with the prior flat rate categories, we will be calling it 3-5 days.  This rate is not shown in our checkout as it does not apply to each product group.  Cost is typically between the priority and express shipping costs.  If you would like for us to investigate this cost for you, please send your address and we will do so.

 

Large Flat Rate Priority

Like the padded envelopes, there are certain items that fit into the large box (Medium size purses).  This is a flat rate no matter where in the US the item is going.  USPS advertises 1-3 business days but, to be safe, we are calling it 3-5 days.  This rate is not shown in our checkout as it does not apply to each product group.  Cost is typically between the priority and express shipping costs.  If you would like for us to investigate this cost for you, please send your address and we will do so.
