Yes and no. This is SUCH a giant monster in the world of Amazon Prime vs. small business owner. I could write a five page essay on this topic. Bottom line, as a small fry in the online marketplace, we have a hefty shipping bill. We also have a shop on Etsy, which dictates how we price things here on our personal website. Etsy "encourages" all shop owners to offer a $35 free shipping guarantee with the "incentive" of "visibility" in search. We mirror that over here. Shipping isn't free and I hate the deception of that, but we are stuck. Everything in our store is priced purposefully to cover our shipping costs. If your item is under $35, shipping isn't included in the price. If your item is above $35 shipping is already included in the price. Either way, you are paying for shipping. We do not add any extra buffers in the shipping prices you see calculated, that is straight from USPS and what we will pay for your shipping label. So, if you are wondering if since your item is $34.99, could I just give you free shipping, the answer, unfortunately, is no. I am so very sorry about that and thank you for your understanding. We do have some cute ornaments in the shop that will boost you over the $35 mark. They don't weigh much and don't cost us any extra to mail in your package, so we encourage you to look at those if you are feeling like you want more bang for your buck and will in turn help us cover your shipping.
