November 24, 2019
It's the season of shipping, and all mail carriers are preparing for vastly increased volume and a flurry of last-minute shipments. To ensure your purchases arrive when you want them, please follow these guidelines for December 2019 shipping.
The last day to place orders for made-to-order jewelry and have a chance of it being shipped before my closure is December 15th.
The last day for shipping First-Class (basic US Postal Mail) with a chance of it arriving by Christmas is December 18th.
Our last shipping date is Friday, December 20th. On that date, Priority Mail (average 1-3 days within the lower 48 states) has a good chance of arriving by Tuesday, December 24th, but it's not guaranteed. The farther from Virginia you live, the stronger I urge you to consider Express Mail if you need your jewelry by Christmas.
If you require your order by Christmas, especially if you live in HI, AK, or outside the US, please purchase the fastest shipping you can afford (US Postal Priority or Express Mail) regardless of your order date in December. We work hard to ensure orders go out as quickly as possible, but we can't control the delivery speed.
Please note that we have stocked our newly released ceramic plugs in a variety of sizes, but some are made-to-order and require short production time. Please order ceramic plugs by December 15th to guarantee shipment by December 20th.
We will be closed from December 21st to January 5th to spend time with family and give the workshop a much needed deep clean and reorganization. We will reopen Monday, January 6th, ready to get busy with the correspondence and orders that came in during our closure.
Thanks for your continued business!
