Please note, Ruby Lane's calculated shipping is an estimate and sometimes can be intimidating. Rest assured, I only charge my actual shipping costs and will refund any excess you have paid. USPS shipping rates (both domestic and international) have increased this year. I ship based on size of box (anything over 12" is considered oversized and charged a hefty surcharge by USPS), weight, insurance and priority, first class or express options. Express offers less expensive insurance for items in this price range.
