All our items ship from our production facility located in Leonardtown, Maryland, usually via USPS Priority Mail. The cost of our shipping may be higher then some of our competitors with multiple shipping locations, especially when we are shipping out west - however, we strive to give you the lowest cost while still providing a service you would expect. That includes proper packing materials to ensure your items arrive safely, tracking for your shipment, and insurance in case a problem does arise. Adding more to your shipment does help offset the cost as well as being a subscriber to our bi-weekly newsletter and Facebook page where we offer promotions like free shipping and purchase discounts. We look forward to your order and the opportunity to prove our value.
