Recent Updates


I am not accepting any new orders at this time. 


Shipping and Insurance Requirements as of January 1, 2021

Changes to USPS policies initiated by the new Postmaster General, Trump donor and appointee, Louis DeJoy, have resulted in packages being lost or stolen at unprecedented rates.  Therefore, beginning 1/1/21, full insurance will be required on everything I ship via USPS.

UPDATE: USPS has now added a $15 surcharge to any package longer than 30".  

UPS has a similar policy now, too.  

And, yes, I'm sorry but I have to pass these costs on to you.
