As Christmas draws ever-closer, this post will answer some common customer questions and provide some additional information about my holiday shipping options at Old World Primitives.
ORDERING DEADLINES FOR CHRISTMAS DELIVERY
Deadline for ordering Made to Order items for Christmas delivery: Dec. 10th.
Deadline for ordering in-stock items being shipped via USPS First Class Mail (my usual shipping method) within the USA for Christmas delivery: Dec. 19th. If you upgrade to USPS Priority Mail, this deadline is Dec. 20th. If you upgrade to USPS Express Mail (warning: this is really expensive!), this deadline is Dec. 21st.
Deadline for ordering in-stock items being shipped via USPS First Class Mail International (my usual shipping method) outside the USA for Christmas delivery: Dec. 10th. If you are in Europe, Canada, the Caribbean or the Middle East, this deadline can be extended to Dec. 13th if you upgrade to USPS Priority Mail International.
WHEN WILL MY ORDER SHIP?
Old World Primitives will continue to ship all orders for in-stock items placed between now and Christmas within one business day of receiving your cleared payment. I will ship every day that the post office is open, including Saturday, right up until Christmas.
SHIPPING A GIFT DIRECTLY TO THE RECIPIENT
If you would like to save some time and money by having me ship a gift directly to the recipient, I am happy to do this for you. Just let me know in the “Note to Seller” field during the checkout process that your order is a gift, and what you would like your gift note to say. I will include your note inside your choice of a Christmas card or “Happy Holidays” card at no extra charge. Your gift will also be nicely wrapped up and shipped inside a box – just like each order that I send out is – so that it will open up just like a present for your gift recipient.
And just in case you haven’t seen the new chenille bunny rabbit ornaments in the Old World Primitives Etsy shop yet (for those who would like some bunnies that can be displayed on Christmas trees or year-round), I will leave off with a peek at them.
