Five things you should definitely know and then a very long winded, rather tedious but important note about shipping:
Please read this very long note about shipping, especially in hot weather:
First of all, if you are in the Seattle area, we offer local pick-up on Mercer Island.
We ship USPS Priority, which is 2-3 day mail depending on where you are. We ship from Seattle, so if you are in, say, Florida, it’s more like 3 days. Once our lovingly wrapped packages leave our kitchen, we have no control over what USPS does with them.
Shipping is set at $16.00 flat rate per order, not per item. We don't charge for handling. Castiron also charges a convenience fee. If you are buying an item for $12 you’ll be charged about $30. If you buy 2 items for $24, you’ll be charged about $45. It’s weird, I know. I wish I had more control over shipping costs. We’ve reduced the price as low as we can without sacrificing ingredient quality.
Shipping to Canada is always more than $16! If you are in Canada and want to know exactly how much it's going to be, please contact me at email@example.com *before* you order so we can work out the details.
We ship Monday-Saturday during the fall/winter and on Mondays and Tuesdays during the summer. Chocolates (especially milk chocolate due to high cocoa butter content) will melt just sitting in your hand, so imagine what your lovely, hand crafted chocolates would look like after a weekend in some warehouse.
That said, shipping chocolates in spring/summer or anytime to the Deep South is kind of a crapshoot. I’ve had chocolates arrive in perfect condition to Florida in 90 degree heat and I’ve had chocolates arrive in less than perfect condition to Texas during a cold snap. Again: once we ship to you, we’ve done everything we can to make sure your items arrive safely. After that, it’s Mother Nature and the USPS.
If you need your items sooner, or you need to make 100% sure there are no melting issues, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a quote for ice packaging and overnight shipping.
