Other items need to be ordered by the manufacturer. These include custom orders, orders with unique color requests, and pieces we don’t currently have in stock. In that case, orders will generally ship within 5 weeks, but they vary depending on the company.
An email will be sent to you with the tracking number when orders are shipped. We ship via USPS (U.S. postal service) for free in the United States. USPS delivers Monday through Friday. We charge flat-rate shipping for international orders through USPS.

These are the shipping times for these companies:
**These times are a general time frame for when we don’t have that specific piece in stock and these times could vary (less or more).
International Customers: Shipping with USPS first class international, your orders may be delayed, once your order leaves the United States, unfortunately, there is little we can do to further track the package if it is delayed. We highly recommend ordering with Priority International or Express. We apologize for the inconvenience and we thank you for your understanding.
