USPS has announced a temporary rate increase that will raise the price of all domestic shipping services during the upcoming holiday season.
USPS is raising rates to help them cover increased costs from dealing with 3 big headaches; the coronavirus pandemic, record-breaking shipping volumes, and Congress not helping them out.
Unfortunately there's no escaping it...I wish there was something I could do to avoid this. I have only raised the postage slightly (no more than $1) As you know, postage & packing material is VERY costly, especially heavy packages with priority postage :( & USPS continues to raise the rates every year. We have explored other options with FEDEX AND UPS, but USPS still seems to be the cheapest postage offered. We are a very small business. We still however will be offering our flat rate - ( no matter how many you buy, 1 flat rate shipping cost). Orders of $50 or more before shipping will receive a free gift in their order. I appreciate every single order I receive. The support you have shown me seriously means the world. I love seeing others enjoy things I’ve created.
IT'S SPOOKY SEASON!
I am so incredibly grateful for all of your support! Thank you so much for shopping small for handmade candles.
We are still in a pandemic and I am still operating with limited help. Most of the time, it is just me making all of the candles, labeling, packing orders, and shipping. Candles are fragile and USPS doesn't always treat packages nicely. It takes time and care to pack each order carefully to ensure your goodies have a safe journey to you! It's our busiest season, & I'm just one ghoul lol! I try my hardest to have orders out before the estimated processing time. But, please keep in mind the current processing times when placing your order. Suppliers are also currently facing this issue so my shipments of supplies have been running a little on the slow side. Please be patient with me, I am just one ghoul lol! My heart is so full from all of the continued support. I cannot thank you all enough. I love seeing you happy with what I have created. I can't wait until you guys get your hands on this new Halloween collection!
