Shipping is something all online sellers have to deal with. We always tried to get the best deal for our customers. USPS is still the best deal for items under a pound which most of my items are. But if you spend $75.00 or more shipping is on us and it will be priority. I ship out with in 5 days of the order at the latest. I really try to mail out as fast as possible (sometimes I may run out of beads and have to get them (the is the reason for 5 days).
We do ship international (we are in the USA) Sorry but shipping internationally is more expensive so I can not offer free shipping.. With that being said i will find the best rate.
