Store prices throughout the site do not include shipping & handling, and vary with each piece. Due to the Antique/Vintage nature of most of our items, we ship most pieces flat (hardpacked) in boxes and would be securely & safely packed as per the item's specifications. Some items may be shipped in heavy-duty tubes or triangle-tubes at our discretion or if specifically requested. Smaller items (like postcards & small prints) will also be securely & safely packed. If you would like extra insurance coverage, please let us know and we will include it in the shipping & handling rate. We collect tax only in the state of New York at a rate of 8.75%.
