SHIPPING

STANDARD SHIPPING


    I ship through the United States Postal Service (USPS).  My shipping prices are based on regular mail which provides delivery in the United States in 5 to 7 days.  I strive to ship the next business day after I receive the order.  


EXPEDITED SHIPPING

    Upon request, I will ship Priority Mail which delivers in 1 to 2 days in the United States.  I will invoice you through PAYPAL for the additional cost.  Warning -- because of the size of the box required for the larger bowls, USPS charges a surcharge for Priority Mail shipped by air.  Thus,  Priority Mail may cost $20 to $40 per bowl more than regular mail.   Email your address and I will provide a more exact estimate.  


OVERSEAS SHIPPING

    I do not ship outside the Continental United States including Canada.  The cost of using Priority Mail plus the air surcharge make overseas shipping prohibitively expensive.


USPS RATE INCREASE

     In 2019, USPS increased postal rates for packages and also increased the surcharge for larger packages such as those required for most of my bowls.  Based on my experience thus far, the rate increases have more than doubled my shipping costs.  For examples, a bowl recently shipped to Nevada cost $45 verses $20 pre increase and a shipment to Ohio cost $35.00 verses $15.  Unfortunately,  I will have to pass some of these increased shipping costs to my customers.
