If you wish to purchase higher quantities please contact me for a quote on lead time.  Wholesale pricing is reserved for retailers who regularly place large orders for retail purposes only.  I am not a mass producer/manufacturer and cannot afford to offer discounts for one time purchases 
  6. I will be happy to drop ship. Please note if shipping to multiple addresses additional shipping charges may be necessary. Shipping costs are based on shipping to one address.
  7. INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS:   Please note that your country may require you to pay import duty tax and fees.  The purchaser is responsible for these taxes and fees as they are payable to your country and not incorporated into shipping cost because shipping costs are payable to the country of origin, in this case the United States.  Some countries provide relief to these charges.  Contact your country’s customs office for all the information regarding importing fees and relief of said fees.  I cannot control or be held responsible for customs delays.
