Orders placed after 12pm CST on Friday, will be processed on the following Monday. This does not apply to items on special order. Shipment time for these items will depend on manufacturer delivery time.
Typical shipping charges are available in the CART window. If however you are not sure what is the most economical method please check off "Best Way" and we will search out the best methods for your order to get to you in the safest and most reliable way.

Custom Ordered Items
To return an item, ship it back to us properly packaged with a copy of the original receipt. Once received it will be inspected, restocked and a credit will be issued in the same manner which it was paid for, less the shipping charge.
We pack our items carefully so as to avoid damage during shipping. However once the package leaves our store it is out of our care, custody, and control. If a package is damaged in transit please notify us, but the responsibility lies with the shipping carrier and you will need to seek remedy from them. We will make every effort to get replacement products to you, but financial arrangements will need to be secured with the carrier. We strongly suggest that large or expensive orders be insured for the full retail value of the order. Please indicate this in the comments section on your order and we will contact you regarding the extra fee for insuring your shipment.
We strive to ship or orders properly, but since we are a human system mistakes do happen. If your order is not perfect please let us know and we will do what we can to make it right. If you happen to be one of those rare orders where extra items have been shipped to you we would appreciate you letting us know so we can arrange to get it back from you with our thanks.
