Thanks to all for your interest in my work.  All my items are packaged and shipped very quickly each month with tracking numbers typically available in your PayPal the next afternoon, as well as any postage reimbursements.

I am on the east coast and most postage is based on the longest distance possible.  Reimbursements will be done to reflect actual rates once packages are processed.
