Shipping of Smaller Items

We engage the services of UPS, FedEx, and the U.S. Postal Service for shipping of smaller Items. These orders ship via standard ground service, include full insurance, and generally arrive within 3-7 business days from the ship date. Expedited shipping is available upon request. 

Whenever possible, we will pack your item(s) ourselves at no charge to help you save on packing costs.

All shipping and packing costs incurred at UPS or FedEx will be charged directly to your credit card by our local UPS Store or FedEx.  All shipping costs incurred at USPS will be charged directly to your credit card by French Metro Antiques.

Or you may contact UPS (800-PICK-UPS) or French Metro Antiques (479-587-0804) for assistance with filing a claim. All items are insured for the purchase price.
