*** For orders placed in the evening or before
10:00 a.m. US Central Time, the USPS Express Mail transit time to larger
metropolitan areas is typically 1 business day. For rural areas and smaller
cities, the transit time may be 2 business days. Feel free to inquire as to
Express transit time to your zip code.
Using the US Mail keeps shipping costs low.
Another way to keep transit costs down is not automatically insuring shipments. This decision is left up to you.
Lost, stolen or damaged packages without insurance are not covered by the Attic.
I do pack very well and am pleased to say there's been no damage to any
shipments (thousands of packages and counting!), insured or otherwise.
USPS insurance is at your option and rates are
currently as follows. Insured packages may require signature, per USPS policy, and
they do not waive this option. To select any amount of coverage, up to the value of
your purchase, click the corresponding ''Add to cart'' button below:

Please note that the above shipping insurance is

Priority EXPRESS International carries insurance.
APO and FPO
I ship to APO and FPO addresses on a regular
basis. There is no additional charge for APO or FPO shipping.
Special Order and Back-Order
Special-order items, generally marked
with an asterisk (*), will ship on the
posted timeframes listed for those pieces. Usually within 7 to 10 business days for US
items and up to 6 weeks for overseas special order items. If your order includes
both special-order and in-stock items, please allow the posted timeframe for
your completed order to ship or please do email in advance to make arrangements.
Back-order items are non-special order items. Back-order timeframes
vary depending upon the circumstance, but most US items
will ship within 10 business days of your order. Orders for multiples of the
same frame may also follow this same timeframe. If your order includes both back-order
and in-stock items, I'll email to make arrangements. Please note that secondary
shipments will be sent USPS First Class, Delivery Confirmation, unless other
arrangements are made.
Dear International Customers:
The Postal Service here in the US (USPS) increased all their international shipping rates significantly
on January 27, 2013. I do
apologize, but I have to pass those price increases along. I've investigated
other options - such as FedEx and UPS - but the USPS rates are still better than
other carriers. I will continue look for better rates, but for now USPS is still
Thanks and best regards,

** - The rates
above are example rates. Rates vary based on items
purchased and destination nation. The rates above would be about right to most
nations in or near Europe. Additional pairs sometimes ship for this same price
or a small increment increase. Transit times are estimates and can differ based
on location and your nation's customs processing time and also depend upon your
national postal service. Each of the above shipping methods may not be displayed
depending upon the items selected.
THE SHOPPING CART CALCULATES INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
The shopping cart will calculate
shipping rates to most locations, worldwide. You'll get the exact rates during
Step 2 of the Check-Out process and you can modify your order at that time. No
credit card or PayPal information is collected until after this step.
INTERNATIONAL PRIORITY EXPRESS OR PRIORITY RECOMMENDED
I ship internationally via the US Postal
Service (USPS) using Priority Mail EXPRESS International for shipping with tracking and insurance
up to $200 included in the rate. I also offer USPS Priority Mail International for
shipping with a tracking number. The USPS First Class International shipping option includes no insurance and no tracking and can take up to a month in
transit, depending on customs processing in the receiving nation. If you
select the First Class International, please expect an email from the Attic
regarding the risks associated with this shipping method and do allow the extended time for your
package to arrive. Some orders may require Priority Mail EXPRESS International and I will
email regarding those orders. Using any method, packages are typically delivered by your country's
service. I don't
cover lost or damaged items, so the Priority Mail EXPRESS International or the Priority
Mail International are the recommended choices. I do pack very well and am happy to say I've still
had no damage to any international shipments to date.
INTERNATIONAL NAMES AND ADDRESSES MUST MATCH
When ordering from overseas, please be sure the order shipping name and
shipping address matches the payment name and shipping address. This
may mean you need to enter your shipping address when on the PayPal screen. If
ordering from outside the USA for delivery to an address inside the USA,
again, please be sure the payment shipping address is the correct shipping
names and addresses do not match, your order may have to be cancelled and
re-submitted. If you have questions about name and shipping addresses
matching, please feel free to email
before ordering. Also, please use English characters when entering your
address information because the Attic systems cannot handle non-English
NOTES ABOUT INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS
carry address labels inside the package, in case your customs office misplaces
the original packaging. The estimated transit times can be longer due to
customs processing time in your country. Some countries may charge import
duties and taxes and these will be the responsibility of the recipient. Customs
forms will not
list contents as a ''gift'' and will not be otherwise falsified. Also note that I only accept funds in US dollars for
purchases from outside the US.
You are always welcome to inquire
with questions or for a rate quote to your international location. If
requesting a shipping quote, because rates vary based on weight, please include a list of what items you plan to purchase in your
email. I'll do my best to respond promptly.
