We ship most orders via ground delivery within the continental United States.  Rush orders, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and international orders may incur additional shipping charges. 

We strive to process and ship within 3 to 5 business days of your order.  As you know, the majority of our hand-crafted products are imported from South Africa.  To provide you with the best customer service possible, we try to maintain sufficient inventory to readily fill your requests.  At times we may have delays in inventory replenishment due to the availability of the natural resources used to make our products, U.S. Customs, U.S. Fish and Wildlife and/or other shipping logistics outside our control.  

If your order is experiencing a delay, we will contact you via email to let you know our best estimate of when you will receive it.  Of course, your credit card will not be charged until your product is shipped. Most purchases are shipped from our Florida location via UPS.
