Shipping Information

Our Processing Time

Our goal is to have your package leave us within 48 hours of you placing your order unless we must contact you first to resolve an issue (e.g. shortage, credit card problem, etc.).  If we can process your order within 24 hours, we certainly will.  During the holiday season, however, it may take 3 to 4 days to process your order, so order early if timing is an issue.

 Domestic Shipping

  • USPS Priority Mail (Standard):  Because we ship out of Alaska, shipping via USPS Priority Mail is the most cost-effective standard shipping method.  We don’t offer shipping through other carriers.
  • USPS Priority Mail Shipping Time:  A good shipping time estimate for shipping to the lower 48 States would be 3 to 6 days, maybe a little longer during the Holiday season.  For shipping within Alaska, many cities/villages receive packages within 2 days, while others that are remote, depending on weather, may not receive packages for up to two weeks or longer.  USPS Priority Mail shipping times are not guaranteed.
  • USPS Priority Mail (Standard) Shipping Rates:  Note:  Due to the high cost of labor to process your order, we add a $5.00 fee to your shipping charge when the merchandise total is under $25.  The following rates apply to all orders that will fit in a USPS Small Flat Rate Box:
    Merch. Amount Shipping Rate
    $0.01 – $24.99 $16.40
    $25.00 – $120.00 $11.40
    $120.00 – and up $11.40 + small insurance fee
  • USPS Express Mail:  For shipments within Alaska, this level of service costs more, but will usually not get your order to you any faster.  However, for those of you in the lower 48 states, if you must have your package within 2-3 days of it leaving our store, then choosing this method is best, and guaranteed by the USPS.  Please ask us for a shipping quote if you prefer this service.
  • Larger Shipping Box Rates:  For orders that will not fit in a small flat rate box, we will advise you of any extra shipping charges. Note: Many orders that don’t weigh that much, but require a larger box and are shipping within Alaska, will not incur shipping rates higher than those listed above.
