Holiday Shipping

Please note that the deadline has passed for guaranteed Christmas delivery. May we suggest a UPG Gift Certificate?


You could order without paying attention to these Guidelines. You might get lucky. Or not.

These Guidelines give you the best chance for delivery in time for Monday, December 25th, 2017 based on schedules provided by USPS and UPS. All times refer to Eastern Time (see below for Help with Time).

Our power over crowded delivery trucks, Mother Nature, and entropy is not only limited but humbling. We know this. You know this. Let’s go—
