We want to help make your Christmas a happy, hippie one. So we are bringing the boys at Fedex on board. Normally we ship the US Postal service, but we have decided to go with Fedex to help all you last minute folks out. They deliver till Christmas Eve. We have negotiated some good rates, so it won't cost that much more than our regular shipping charges.

Remember, we are located in the Chicago area and are UNAFFECTED by the storm out east. We can get your in stock orders out to you and in time for Christmas. If you want to upgrade to Fedex and guarantee you get it in time for Christmas, please call us 847-299-2622 before placing your order. We must have your order by 4pm central time on Monday 12/21 to make it for Fedex. If you don't want to pay for Fedex, just place your order by 2pm Central time and it will go out the same day via U.S. Post Office Priority Mail.


There's still time but you better hurry. We have 3 pickups a day from the post office and are getting your orders out as fast as possible. Our regular method of shipping is US Priority Mail, which is usually a 2-4 day service. After tomorrow, the only option will be the more expensive ($$) 3 day guaranteed service. We will also be using Fedex next week for last minute orders. We need to have a phone number where we can reach you. We will not sell your info and won't make crank calls to you late at night. Not everyone checks their email and with Christmas around the corner, the phone is quicker.

Also remember, our packages will NOT be left at the door, someone must sign for them.

Peace & Happy Holidaze!


There is still time to get something in time for Christmas. All orders placed by 10am central time, will go out the same day. Because we are located in the Midwest, as opposed to most of our competitors who are on the east or west coast, we are better positioned to get your Christmas gifts in time. You can call us at 847-299-2622 to verify stock of anything we sell.


Order as early as possible to guarantee delivery and best selection. We are getting most orders out within 24 hours. Some orders are being held because we are missing something and are going to be restocked this week.

When ordering please make sure you include a day time phone number, so  that we may contact you if we are out of stock or have a question. We will also try and email you, but our emails often get caught up in peoples spam or junk filters. Be aware, that we ship in stock items only and do not backorder. You are only charged for what ships. We make every efffort to keep the website updated with current stock status, but it doesn't always work that way. You can always call us (847-299-2622) to check stock of an item, and then complete your order online.

We use the U.S. Postal service (for better or worse) to ship orders. Overall, they have been pretty good with our packages. As the clock winds down, Express Mail will be the only option for holiday delivery. They are the only ones who will deliver on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day (depending on where you live).
