Do you ship internationally?
While we do recognize the needs of our international students because of issues with fraud liability, tracking packages and exorbitant shipping costs we only ship to the continental United States.

How can I check the status of my order?
Once we have received your order it will take 1-2 business days to process the transaction. Once this is complete, and your package is ready to ship, we will email confirmation and tracking information to the email account with which you registered.
Why do you offer a greater variety in store than on your website?
Items on our website are those that are order in higher quantity and are sold consistently year after year. A large portion of the items we offer in store are seasonal and therefore only order once, or once every few years. For these reasons and in an attempt to ensure we have everything in stock we have only made specific items available online. If you have visited our store recently and saw something you would like to add to your order please email us at the time you place your order or before so we can make the necessary arrangements and adjustments to your order before it is processed.
