Why are there 2 separate shopping carts for stationery items & handmade items?

Thank you so much for this question!

I apologize for any confusion this may cause.

When building the web pages for my handmade items (Bummlies, Sweater Vests, Barkclava Hats, FUNdanas, and Add-On Badges), it was necessary to create a different yet equally secure checkout system than the shopping cart used for my stationery items (address labels, signed prints, books, note cards & gift wrap).

I did this to ensure that inventory numbers for the handmade items are kept up-to-date & accurate while allowing the flexibility that you have always enjoyed when choosing images for my stationery items.

Please rest assured that when purchasing stationery & handmade items at the same time through the 2 separate cart systems, that all items will be combined in as few packages as possible & that all extra shipping charges will be refunded to you when I process your orders.

Do you combine shipping?

Are you interested in sending multiples of the same item or a combination of different products to one address?

I am happy to combine shipping when possible.

The secure shopping cart calculates shipping charges by the approximate weight of your order.  It is very accurate for most orders.  However, in some cases, the actual weight or the use of flat rate packaging can lower the shipping charge.

Our Promise to You:

You will never be charged more for shipping than what the shopping cart calculates.  After packaging your order, if the actual shipping charge is lower than the shopping cart's original calculation, a reduced shipping cost will be charged.  An email will also be sent to you, notifying you of the lowered rate.

My pug, Emmitt, has inspired my love for painting pugs and dogs.  Please read our story of how it all began.

I am happy to inscribe your copy of Emmitt & Olive.  It ships from my location, so I am happy to sign it. All of my other books are dropped shipped to you directly from the publisher, so I cannot sign them.
