I don’t normally ship via Fedex or UPS. Please indicate if you need your package shipped that way for me to calculate shipping.

Returns and exchanges:

There will be a 20% restocking charge for anything returned. The only exception being something exchanged for the same item in a different size. If there are signs of disassembly or otherwise worked over to find out how they’re made there will not be a refund. The designs are not copyrightable, but I have very lousy feelings for anyone who uses one of my items to copy it, and then doesn’t have the courtesy to pay for the original. Also, shipping is non-refundable. If you return an item even for size, please note that you will be charged shipping on the replacement item I send you and you will be credited for returning the original item.
