Our Green Shipping and Delivery


Most In Stock Orders Ship Within 1 Business Day1

Carbon Neutral Green ShippingOur earth friendly shipping is standard on most items. We use recycled and recyclable paper for filler in our boxes. We do not use Styrofoam peanuts, only cornstarch peanuts, and limit our use of bubble wrap to only the most delicate items. Any bubble wrap packing you find in your order is reused from shipments we receive from suppliers. We do not buy bubble wrap. For complete information on our green initiatives, see our Green Policy.

HOW MUCH WILL SHIPPING COST?

Shipping is FREE when you choose Economy Saver Shipping (valid to the 48 contiguous states).

That's right, any order, any size ships free.

Our minimum order size is $10.00 (before promotional codes, taxes, or shipping).
We recommend you ALWAYS choose ECONOMY SAVER when shipping to any of the 48 contiguous states. Wind chimes and Suncatchers are shipped direct from the manufacturer and will be sent via UPS Ground when you choose Economy Saver.

Other shipping methods are based on the weight, destination and dollar amount of your order.

Simply add the items to your shopping basket, enter your zipcode and click apply to find out exactly what your shipping will be. NO SURPRISES! You'll have the opportunity to change your shipping method, add or remove items from your cart or start completely over.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY ORDER?

Add processing time + days in transit.

In stock orders usually ship within 2 business days excluding holidays. For our current shipping status on shipping, delays, back-orders and ordering deadlines.

Days in Transit:

Excludes Saturdays, Sundays and shipping carrier holidays. Number of business days needed from the shipping date to arrive at the destination from our shipping facility. For example, 3 transit days means if a package ships on a Monday it will arrive on a Thursday (3 transit days). The day the order leaves our warehouse is not counted as a transit day. How many business days it will take to your area via UPS Ground? View days in transit map.

Keep in mind that USPS does not offer guarantees on ground or priority shipping, so we cannot guarantee specific delivery days if you select our Economy Saver or USPS Priority Mail shipping methods.

Our Economy Saver Shipping usually arrives within 3-10 business days depending on destination. We will ship it the most economical way via USPS or UPS Ground.
