AREAS WE DO NOT SHIP TO:
Currently we DO NOT SHIP to California, nor to Nigeria. We reserve the right to refuse shipment to anyone at anytime without prior notification.
MINIMUM ORDER $25 MERCHANDISE
Orders below $25 in merchandise will be charged $5 handling charge.
We use the freight chart above for most orders, and that is what will display on your order confirmation. Shipping charges are based on normal size and weight boxes shipped within the contiguous U.S. for Mon.-Fri. delivery via UPS Ground.
If you purchase items that are outside those parameters, or if your order must be shipped by another method, we will contact you with your freight charges before shipping.

HIGH FREIGHT ITEMS:
Items that require oversize boxes (like large stuffed toys and some Easter Eggs) or heavy items (like beads or sand) will not be shipped using the freight chart. These are shipped at our cost, which can be 15%-50% of the value of the merchandise.
We will call to advise you before shipping if your cost varies significantly from the freight chart.
Our freight chart does not apply to orders shipped outside the continental U.S. or to APO/PO boxes. For information on shipping to APO/PO boxes click here.
Please be sure the address you enter for shipment is correct. If we are charged additional fees by UPS due to an error on your part when you provide us your shipping address, those fees will be charged you.
Shipping time varies based on your distance from St. Louis. The chart below provides approximate shipping time after order is processed to determine when you will receive your order.

SHIPPING TO APO/FPO BOXES:
Since we only ship by Priority Mail to APO or FPO addresses the freight chart rate shown on your order confirmation is invalid. You will be charged the actual postage plus a handling fee of $5 per package. We will contact you with your freight cost and require your approval prior to shipping.
SHIPPING OUTSIDE THE U.S.:
Orders outside the contiguous U.S. are shipped by Priority Mail with insurance unless requested otherwise by phone, so the freight chart rate shown on your order confirmation is invalid. We charge actual postage plus a handling fee of $5 per package and the cost to insure your package value. We will contact you by email with your freight cost and require your approval before shipping. We require payment by PayPal for all orders shipped outside the continental U.S.
We reserve the right to refuse shipment to anyone at anytime without prior notification. We do not ship to Africa.
Sorry, we do not ship COD.
Our normal method of shipping is via UPS Ground as shown above.
