I ship orders out once a week, except when requested to expedite service or during the holidays. If you have a special need, please let us know.

Until that time, if you have a special mailing need, please tell me straight up!

All items come to you clean and in excellent condition,and ALL the flaws are noted in the description. We have full disclosure on all items. Items come from our smoke free home to yours.
