Yep, it’s that time again – that time when I list out the deadlines for placing an order that you can expect to be delivered on or before Dec. 24. This year it’s a little more complicated than in years past, so bear with me here.
Orders received either on Etsy or for seller-fulfilled items on Amazon by Friday, December 19 will ship via Priority mail on Saturday, December 20, which should have them delivered by Wednesday, December 24. Exceptions include perfumes and lip balms purchased on their own (not part of a larger order), which usually ship via First Class mail, and any bath bombs not in stock and therefore needing to be made to order. Sadly, that latter is hard to tell without asking – but I’ll be happy to check for you and let you know what’s on hand at the moment in question! Upgrades to Priority Mail Express (1-2 day shipping) are available on Etsy – but fair warning, mailing things that fast is crazy expensive, so it costs $20 to upgrade your order. Orders placed over the December 20-21 weekend will go out Monday, December 22 and will very likely still arrive by December 24, but I’m less inclined to offer a guarantee.
Whew! That all seems complicated enough already! But wait, there’s more! Any Amazon-listed items we have which are Fulfilled By Amazon are therefore subject to Amazon’s shipping deadlines, not the ones outlined above. Which means, since Amazon’s shipping apparatus lets them ship stuff faster than I can, that with Prime two-day shipping you can order up to Monday, December 22, or upgrade to next-day shipping and order on Tuesday.
…OK, that’s pretty much covered those bases, I think. Let me know if anything is unclear and I’ll try to simple it up somewhat. Now, on to the next things: Shows! We have two more in-person appearances scheduled this year. This weekend we’ll be at the Holiday Swing in Kansas City’s West Bottoms district on Friday and Saturday.

And last but not (to us, anyway) least, our open house! This year we’re joining forces with another local Wichita artisan, the ever-awesome Wildfire Accessories and putting on a joint show on December 13 from 10-6. Details below or click the photo for an event link!
Right! I think that’s all my important announcements announced for now. Hope to see you at one of our last couple of events, or if you can’t make it, well, the online stores will always be there for you!
