CAN I ADD SOMETHING ELSE TO MY ORDER?

We are not able to add items to orders that have already been submitted. This is a security feature to protect your credit card transaction. Our system does not store your credit card on file; therefore, extra items cannot be added to an order. Please double check that your cart is complete before making your purchase.

IF I AM SENDING A GIFT, WILL AN INVOICE BE INCLUDED?

Because so many of our customers send items as gifts, should a packing slip be included in your order it will not include prices.  If you'd like a note card included in the order you must leave a note on the order with your request and what you would like the note to say.

DO YOU OFFER GIFT CARDS?

Absolutely!  We offer them in $25 increments, you can find them here.
