We provide limited shipping services directly from our gallery, however eligibility is based on an item's dimensions. Shipments from our gallery may take four to six weeks. We pack and ship small items, small paintings and rugs. Larger items will be transferred to an alternative shipping agent upon your approval. Our staff can assist you with determining if your items qualify. If we are unable to accommodate you, we will provide a list of alternative shipping agents. Allow 7 to 10 business days for checks to clear our bank prior to packing and shipping, or releasing purchases to your chosen shipping agent. You will be charged for the shipping or carrier fees, packing/handling fees, and the required insurance. There is a minimum handling charge of $15.00 for all shipments. Depending on the carrier, insurance limits may exist (ie: Federal Express will only insure up to $500). Shipping estimates can be given only AFTER we receive your payment and form.
