Please send back to:

232 5TH AVE.
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 11215
We ask that you please send through the USPS, UPS or Fed Ex, so the goods
get to us in their original condition!
9. What are your Shipping Charges / Policies?
Shipping: We will do our best to ship out orders as quickly as possible. Depending on what day of the week you place your order, please give us 1-3 days to ship out your package (lead time will be longer during our very busy holiday season during November and December). Please take note of any future ship dates that might be noted next to products. We sell out of items fairly quickly when they are in high demand due to a press feature, and want to keep the item available for people to place orders for future deliveries as soon as they are expected. Please note these dates are our best guestimate, but we will email you if there is a long delay.
When your order has been sent, you will receive an email from us giving you the shipping details and tracking info. Shipping usually takes 3-7 days depending on your location (we ship from Brooklyn, NY) and the time of the year (December is very busy for all shipping methods so please place your order ASAP- we sell out quickly!). Mostly we ship via UPS Ground, however sometimes it is cheaper & often quicker to ship through the USPS, so we will take that option as needed, please see email confirmation for details. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 3-7 DAY SHIPPING WINDOW IS ONCE YOUR PACKAGE LEAVES OUR SHOP and not from your order date.
Shipping costs for shipments are based on your total order amount before sales tax (NY only) or any special discounts are applied.
Ground Shipping rates are:
$.01- $25= $7.95
$25.01- $50= $9.95
$75.01- $100= $13.95
$100.01- plus= Free!
We will do our best to accommodate expedited shipping as needed. Please email us using our
contact form for 2nd Day air service. We will get back to you ASAP with a shipping quote.
BE SURE TO ADD YOUR APARTMENT OR SUITE NUMBER AS NEEDED (unfortunately if pkgs missing this info are returned to us or need to be re-routed it is YOUR responsibility). We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages, or for packages returned to us for incorrect addresses.
We love our international customers and many visit us at the shop! We will
do our best to ship internationally (and still make it worth everyone's while
from a cost perspective). If you are interested in sending things internationally
please email us using
our contact form with your order and order and we will advise shipping
costs and then you can enter that when you are processing your order. If you have a large order we can try to accommodate your needs, please contact us through our contact form.
