Our company handcrafts all products within 10 – 14 business days.
Oftentimes, orders process faster than that but we can’t guarantee a faster processing time.

Made to Order vs. Pre-Made
Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship or if the product is ordered before it’s handmade.
Both are handmade but the pre-made is shipment ready while the made-to-order products take 10 – 14 business days to be created for you.

Look for the following image if a product is ready for shipment immediately:


The product(s) you receive might vary slightly from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s) being 100% handmade to order.

Care for your new product(s) by:
* Hand Wash, cold water, mild soap

International shipping (if applicable)
We happily support and love our international customers.
We ship all International products through USPS Priority

Handmade Happiness by Ruth, LLC is not responsible for duty or brokerage fees for international shipping.
These charges come from your country during importation of your package.
To remain ethical in my business practices, I cannot mark international shipments as “gifts”.

Cost calculations
We do our best to apply fair shipping costs to each order.

* We charge a low, flat shipping rate to be fair to all customers.
* We offer free shipping to the US on all orders over $149.
* International orders over $149 will receive a $6 discount on shipping.

Selecting expedited shipping during checkout does not ensure a faster processing time. Your product may still need 10 – 14 business days to be handmade.

Lost or Damaged Items
Handmade Happiness by Ruth, LLC is not responsible for any errors made by the USPS.

* If your package has not been received within 3 weeks of receiving your shipping notification email (6 weeks for international), please contact me and I will do what I can on my end to sort things out with the USPS.
* If the item is damaged in shipping due to improper handling, please take a photo of the damaged package BEFORE you open it so that we can work together to get the Post Office to cover shipping for a replacement item.

Thank you for understanding that I am as much at their mercy to get your item to you as you are to receive it.
