Cost & Conveyance

As you place your order, a shipping cost will be added to your total. This cost is based on the products you have purchased and on their destination.
  • If our actual shipping cost turns out to be much lower than expected, we will lower the amount on your order before charging your credit card.
  • If our actual shipping cost turns out to be higher than expected, we will not change the amount on your order. We will cover any difference.
In nearly every instance, we use the United States Postal System to ship to our customers.
  • For a mailing within the United States, we will most often use a USPS Priority Mail package. Delivery to your door will be made within several days of leaving our part of the Walden Pond shoreline in Concord, Massachusetts.
  • For a mailing outside of the United States, we will use the First Class Mail International option available through USPS. Delivery time will obviously vary by destination.
We will provide the tracking number in our e-mail confirmation of shipment to you.

If something goes awry in this process, please contact us at (978) 287-5477, or at, so that we can begin to research the problem. Historically, we have experienced very few glitches in the delivery system.

Thanks again for your patronage!
