Shipping & Handling Policies


We Offer Free Shipping on U.S. Orders $70 and more via USPS (First Class or Priority Mail) or UPS Ground Service. Anything under $70 ships for $8.00. If the order is $70 or more, the shipping is free to U.S. addresses as well as addresses in U.S. territories (for example, Guam and Puerto Rico). Shipping to international addresses are charged actual cost minus the U.S. free shipping credit. More information appears below.

Standard Shipping to U.S. Addresses

Orders will usually be on their way to you no later than the next business day via USPS Priority Mail, USPS First Class Package Service, or UPS Ground Service. Most items should arrive in 4-7 business days. Rates are subject to change without notice. We reserve the right to limit quantities.

Express Shipping

Due to our rural location, it is exceedingly difficult to meet the time limits for express shipping. 

International Shipping


We use four options in shipping to Canadian addresses via USPS.

1)  We can ship up to 4 pounds via USPS First Class International Mail at quite attractive rates. We also use UPS Standard Service on occasion. All shipments will be charged automatically $13 for shipping at checkout.

  • There will be no additional shipping invoice issued if your order is at least $70, and the weight is less than 16 ounces.
  • If your order is less than $70, you will be issued an additional invoice (about $8) as your order does not qualify for our free shipping credit.
  • If your order is over $70 and weighs more than 16 ounces, you may be billed for additional shipping charges (over and above your $8 free shipping credit and your $13 shipping prepayment.
  • We will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and quote you the shipping charges for your order.
  • Any taxes and duties are beyond our control, and may be assessed at your end.
  • The best part about First Class Mail is that it arrives nearly as fast as Priority Mail.

2) Priority Mail Padded Flat Rate Envelope: this costs about $25 less our free shipping credit of $8 (when the purchase is $70 or more). This envelope with hold one crinkle cotton pants or two crinkle cotton shorts or two gauze blouses, or perhaps one dress. You may be billed for an additional postage charge over and above the $13 prepayment when we use this option.

3)  Medium International Flat Rate Box: this costs around $50 less our free shipping credit (for orders of $70 or more). This box will hold 3-5 crinkle cotton items or 4-6 cotton gauze items. You may be billed for an additional postage charge over and above the $13 prepayment when we use this option.

4) Large International Flat Rate Box: This costs over $65 less our free shipping credit of $8.00 (for orders of $70 or more). This box holds up to 8-10 items. You may be billed for an additional postage charge over and above the $13 prepayment when we use this option.

In summary, most orders that are submitted will automatically show a $13 shipping charge. The balance of the shipping charge that you may be invoiced for represents our actual shipping costs less the prepayment and any applicable free shipping credit.  

Other International Locations

Please submit your order by email so we can verify availability of all items and provide shipping estimates, usually for First Class Mail as well as International Priority Mail.  We ask that you verify by email the items you desire and your preferable shipping option. In addition, we ask for your full name, your billing address, your shipping address (if different than the billing address), and phone number. We will invoice you for the products and shipping costs.  Your email invoice will show all products you order, and shipping costs. It will include a "Pay Now" button that you may use to complete the transaction. The customer pays any duty and taxes at their end. Please allow time for customs clearance. For international shipping, you may request FedEx or UPS, even though it is more expensive. Any taxes and duties are beyond our control, and may be assessed at your end.

Back Orders

Due to popular demand some items may not be available for immediate shipping and therefore cause the items to go on Back Order.

We will be happy to split the order, and ship all in-stock merchandise immediately. We will email you before we do this. Backordered items will be shipped, as they become available. There are no additional shipping charges for back-ordered items. 

In rare occasions and due to unforeseen circumstances our due dates may be pushed back. In the event that this happens, an email would immediately follow.

Payment Information

When you use Shopify, PayPal, or Amazon Payments, you will be charged at the time of the order. Our website uses SSL secure server technology to encrypt your personal and order information. All personal information is kept on secured databases. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information. We do not ever have access to your credit card information, as payment information is shunted to the credit card processor directly. All orders are screened for fraud protection. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards as well as PayPal and Amazon Payments.
