Eastern Handicraft is proud of it’s fast, reliable, low cost shipping!
Standard Ground Shipping Rates are generated based on the order and the zip code of delivery. Typically, if you can ship to a commercial address you can often save a few dollars on shipping. Shipping rates outside of the 48 contiguous states and internationally are estimated, and may not be applicable to certain very heavy or oversized items.
We mostly use UPS and FedEx as our standard method of shipment to all areas within the Continental U.S. so we can insure your packages, and provide safe and accurate tracking. Please note that UPS and FedEx do not deliver to PO Boxes. If you do not have a physical address, your order will be shipped via United States Postal Service (USPS). All orders sent to AK, HI, PR, Guam, VI, APO & Canada will also be sent via USPS unless otherwise requested by email or phone.
Non-US Mainland Orders
Orders from Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Virgin Islands, APO address, Puerto Rico and Canada are normally shipped via USPS to help reduce broker fees on your end unless otherwise requested. Shipping costs shown on the website to these locations are shipping estimates only and can vary greatly depending on the size and weight of the order. If the actual shipping charges exceed the estimate, you may be contacted to approve the actual costs before shipping. All customers will be fully responsible for all customs, tariffs, duties and brokerage charges if applicable.
Yes we can ship most items anywhere in the world, however, shipping internationally can be very expensive depending on the size and weight of the items, and we will not be responsible for lost or broken shipments. Some items are too large and exceed USPS shipping limitations. Once orders get delivered to Customs for export, we will have little tracking control. That being said, we send many international shipments with very little trouble, almost daily. If you are interested, please send us the items of interest, the quantity, and your COMPLETE SHIPPING ADDRESS so we can provide you an accurate shipping quote. We will send you an invoice that can be paid with a Paypal account, or any credit card. Your items will ship with USPS and typically arrive within 7-14 business days. All customers will be fully responsible for all customs, tariffs, duties and brokerage charges if applicable.
When will my order ship?
We are very excited to get your items to you as fast as we can! We stock products in multiple warehouses across the country. Some warehouses are a bit faster than others, but on average most orders ship within 24 hours and should arrive at your door and in your hands within 2-6 business days depending on your location. If an item is on back-order and will not ship out within 48 hours, we will contact you to let you know.
When will my items arrive? I need more details!
It mostly depends on when you place your order, and where you are located. Products in our NC warehouse usually ship the same day if the order is placed by 6pm EST. Other orders shipping from CA, MO, MS, TN, MI, GA, or CT need to be placed by 11am EST to possibly ship the same day.
