Shipping and Processing

Shipping and Processing Charges are calculated according to the charts below:

Order Total: Shipping and Processing
Up to $34.99 $6.75
$35.00 - $84.99 $9.75
$85.00 & up $13.95 (or free with shipping code)


Please add $3.95 for each additional shipping address.

Orders billed to a Canadian address and shipped to a recipient in Canada are subject to applicable customs, duties, and taxes upon receipt.

Gifts being shipped outside the 48 states are shipped by air, so please add the following, in addition to the regular shipping and processing charges:

CANADA, ALASKA, HAWAII, PUERTO RICO, U.S. POSSESSIONS — $9.95.
In support of our troops and their families, we will not apply the $5.00 additional charge for APO/FPO addresses. Standard shipping charges still apply.

For faster delivery, you choose Expedited or Express Service during checkout. These services are only available on orders for in-stock items delivered within the Continental U.S. Some oversized or heavy items, or items being shipped direct from the manufacturer, do not qualify for these shipping options. Because most items sent overseas are already shipped by air, we do not offer expediting on shipment outside the Continental U.S.

Expedited Delivery - Add $9.95 per address for Second Day Air. Expedited delivery usually arrives in 3-4 business days.

Express Delivery - Add $19.95 per address for Overnight Service. Express delivery usually arrives in 1-2 business days.

Heavyweight Items, such as large furniture, require special packaging and additional freight.


Heavyweight items may be delivered by UPS, FedEx Home or Common Carrier.

Sales tax will be added to shipments under the following circumstances:


Orders shipped into Illinois
6.25% Sales Tax is applied to the merchandise total shipped into Illinois only if the Billing Address is also located in Illinois. The tax is applied to the merchandise total plus the requisite shipping and processing charges.


Orders shipped into Wisconsin
5% State Sales Tax plus .5% county if applicable is applied to orders shipped into Wisconsin. The tax is applied to the merchandise total plus the requisite shipping and processing charges.

The majority of our shipments are shipped via United States Postal Service.
