***Combined shipping is always available for multiple purchases when the “SHIPPING INCLUDED” shipping method listed is the same for each item purchased AND each item can be safely packaged together. Otherwise, multiple purchases without the same shipping method listed AND which require separate packaging & shipping will be shipped separately at no additional charge to you (to ensure the greatest possible degree of protection for each item during transit). Additionally, because the shipping methods that are included within each listing do vary from item to item, it is important to be aware that delivery transit times will likewise vary per item (kindly refer to “Store Policies” for detailed information regarding all shipping methods & delivery transit times applicable to each respective method). Thus, should you desire a more expedient shipping method than that which is already included for any particular item, upon checkout simply select the expedited shipping option that best suits your needs (Priority Mail, Express Mail.)!
