Oversized Items

Some of our fantastical items are oversized and will take some additional love to get to you. If the item requires additional shipping coordination, please expect the normal 72 hours for processing and an additional 7-12 business days for delivery once shipped. Freight/LTL orders will not deliver on weekends or holidays. We charge a flat rate shipping fee, ranging from $200-$350 for each oversized item on order. These items do not qualify for free shipping. 


Items available for preorder will clearly state "preorder" in their title as well as in their description. Preorder dates are estimated, and provided by the brand/vendor. Preorder dates can change at any time. Preorder items are charged at the time of purchase, and will ship as soon as the inventory becomes available.
