Sorry, we do not ship outside the United States.
General Shipping Info
We normally ship orders the next working day if possible.
This site has a no-frills shipping cart, and as such, shipping charges are calculated at a flat rate based on the total amount.
This method does not take into consideration the weight of the items, so if you have ordered small or lightweight items, you will get a partial shipping refund.
Please let me know if you want your package shipped to an address other than the one provided by paypal (usually your business address where credit card bills are sent.) I know many people have summer and winter addresses and I want to make sure your package goes to the correct location. If the address is incorrect because of your oversight, you will be responsible for any additional shipping charges on items returned by the Post Office.
I use USPS delivery confirmation and tracking on shipments. Look for an emailed shipping notice when the package has been sent. Please be sure your email address and shipping address are registered correctly with paypal if you move or change your address.
More About Shipping Charges & Refunds of Excess Charges
Shipping charges are calculated at a flat rate based on the total amount of your order. It is calculated automatically as you shop, based on how much you order and adjusts automatically once you reach a certain amount. Excess shipping amounts will be refunded to you when the order is processed for shipping.
Example - you order 4 lb of Apoxie Sculpt OR you order 2 or 3 lightweight burs. Both have similar dollar amounts. The rate charged is often too little for heavy packages (I never ask you to pay more!) but just as often it is too high for lightweight packages. Lightweight shipments will get a partial refund.
It's not our intent to make money on processing and shipping so refunding any excess is the only way 2 can handle the excessive charges you might incur if you are ordering lightweight items. The shopping cart doesn't know whether the items are lightweight or heavy.
Items returned for refund or replacement must be within 30 days of purchase, in original condition; the cost of shipping is not refunded, only the cost of the product. There is a $5 restocking charge.
Arizona Gourds is for sale. The purchase includes the website ( which the owner of the business manages), mailing list where I compose our newsletters and publish, and the PayPal account for processing orders. Inventory would be part of the purchase but priced separately and total cost to be determined when actual physical inventory is taken.
Because we are moving, hopefully before Thanksgiving, the purchase would need to be completed before that time.
To clarify our location. We are in the Seattle, WA area. We purchased the business from Bonnie Gibson of Tucson and kept the name of the business.
