Please note shipping charges are adjusted at the time of shipping. The shipping charge at check-out is an estimation by a checkout platform. Shipping over $15 is rare, charges above this will be refunded to your Pay Pal account. Charges are not inflated by Cottage Caboodle and reflect actual amount charged to ship to you. Most of the time -we ship by flat rate box or envelope ($8-$15) or first class for small items in an attempt to keep your cost down.
