New Shipping Services

We've completed our new Ordering Information and policies and effective immediately, we will be offering USPS Priority Mail, UPS and FedEx. Which carrier we ship your order through will be determined by Fine Country Living Primitives at the time of shipment.

We've always only shipped USPS Priority Mail, but with their new price increases, many times it's more reasonable to ship a large package across the United States with FedEx than it is Priority Mail. In some recent cases, it would have meant as much as a 30-50% savings in shipping customers orders! All carriers are now charging "dimensional weight" for packages. They are not only calculating the weight of the package, but also the size and combining these two figures for dimensional weight charges which has increased dramatically in the last two years.

These new shipping options has led us to revamp our shipping charges. Shipping charges will now be a flat rate charge depending on the amount of your order. Each package will also be sent to you insured. Full details can be found at our website www.FineCountryLivingPrimitives.com and by visiting our Ordering Information page on the left side.

These new shipping rates are for the lower 48 states only. Hawaii, Alaska and all International orders will be charged EXACT shipping charges and adjustments will be made after the sale and exact charges are calculated.

We hope that these new changes in our shipping policy will benefit everyone. It simplifies the calculation of shipping for everyone and offers many a savings by adding more shipping options available.

Many Blessings,
Mary Jo
