Please note that existing online order inquiries should be submitted via email to best serve you.
We're sorry, but we currently do not offer printed catalogs. We add new items to our product line frequently, and each printed catalog edition would unfortunately be outdated before it was released. Additionally, the cost of printing paper catalogs is prohibitive at this time... and the life of a tree is invaluable to us! We are looking into solutions that will allow us to bring you a printed catalog, so please do keep checking back with us here on our website or, better yet, join our newsletter mailing list! Once it is made available, you will be notified.
We're sorry, but we do not offer wholesale accounts at this time. This may change in the future. Thank you for your interest!
Sacred Mists Shoppe is required to automatically charge and withhold the applicable sales tax for orders to be delivered to addresses within the State of California at the rate of 8.00%. Each customer shall be solely responsible for all sales taxes, or other taxes, duties and/or customs fees, on orders shipped to any other state or country.
Sale Processing, Shipping and Delivery Times
Your credit card or PayPal payment will be processed immediately upon submission of your order to us. Shipping option selected must reflect shipping charges associated with your order. Should an order present to us without an accurate shipping option selected, we will adjust the order post-receipt to reflect actually charges associated with your delivery via the cheapest method available. All orders are considered final at time of order submission. We do not accept cancellations for any reason, therefore we ask that you be sure of your purchase before placing an order with us. We require 7-14 business days to process, pack, and ship your order to you, regardless of shipping method selected, unless otherwise noted within your order status updates OR unless a handcrafted or custom item has been ordered. All orders incur a single handling charge of $3.50 per order which is included in your calculated shipping costs shown at time of checkout. This cost is to offset fuel surcharges and additional delivery costs associated with your order. Orders are shipped directly from our covenstead warehouse located in the beautiful Napa Valley, California. Some hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind or special order items can take 4-6 weeks for delivery. We offer a split-shipment option in these cases, should you prefer not to wait for all items to be ready to ship (additional charges will apply). In accordance with California Civil Code Section 1723.
Shipping Insurance and Liability
Shipping insurance is not automatically included on orders utilizing our standard USPS Priority Mail service. All items within each order are subject to a rigorous, two-step, quality control process during the picking and packing process to ensure pristine condition of
your merchandise prior to departure from our warehouse. We will not be held responsible, nor will we assume liability, for packages or items within packages after they leave our shipping department and are released to the carrier for delivery. Sacred Mists Shoppe is not responsible for loss, breakage or other delivery problems associated with your shipment UNLESS optional shipping insurance (provided by the shipping carrier) is purchased. Claims on insured packages will be made through and processed through the carrier and not Sacred Mists Shoppe, however we will assist you in filing any claims necessary should need arise. If you would like to purchase insurance for your package, please contact Customer Service via email immediately after you place your order also include a telephone number where you can be reached, if needed. We will process a second transaction for your shipping insurance, per your request. If you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at help @ sacredmists.com, via telephone at 866-918-2437, or via fax at 415-358-5549. We're always happy to help!
International and APO Orders
Sacred Mists Shoppe ships to all international locations. International Shipping or Global Express must be selected at time of checkout in order for your invoice to display actual shipping charges to your location. For any order received that does not display actual shipping charges due to inaccurate shipping method selection or postal code error at time of checkout, we will adjust the order manually to reflect actually costs for your delivery via the cheapest method available through us. This new adjusted amount, which will including the cost of goods + shipping for your order, will be reflected on your credit card or PayPal statement. We ship all International Orders under 4 pounds via USPS Global Priority Mail with $20.00 USD insurance as standard, regardless of total order value. All orders above 4 pounds will be shipped via UPS. We cannot be held responsible for shipments after they leave our shipping department and are released to the postal service for delivery and are not responsible for loss, breakage or other delivery problems arising from International shipments. If you would like to purchase additional insurance, please contact us immediately after you place your order at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that there is a firm NO RETURN policy for all International shipments. All Sales are Final. APO shipments are covered under our standard return policy as shown below. Please allow up to 6 weeks for international delivery after shipment from our location as we have no control over customs delays. Currently, we are experiencing delivery delays to Canada and the UK due to customs intervention. Please bear this in mind when ordering as it may take longer for you to receive your items (but well worth the wait, we assure you!).
International Delivery Requirements
Sacred Mists Shoppe requires that all International shipments are signed for by the purchaser at time of delivery before release of the package to the customer by the customer's local delivery service. All domestic orders over $100.00 require signature confirmation prior to release of shipment by the customer's local delivery service. Some International shipments will require that they are shipped Express Mail, to ensure that there is a signature confirmation of delivery and return receipt on file, for your protection and ours. Any additional charges not collected at time of order that are associated with USPS Express Mail shipping on International orders will be billed to the customer prior to shipping and will need to be paid in full prior to release of the order to the shipping carrier. These requirements will be upheld solely at the discretion of Sacred Mists Shoppe.
