Shipping Rate Changes. Unfortunately, the United States Postal Service (USPS) increased shipping rates on January 9th, 2022 by an average of 3% to 5%, with some further destinations increasing as much as $4 to $5 a shipment! Ridiculous.
The U.S. Postal Service last increase was January 24, 2021, by an average of 3.5%, and we did not increase our rates. The last time The Painted Heirloom increased the flat/free shipping rates/threshold was January 26, 2020 - more than 2 years ago.
My husband and I have evaluated the most recent rate increases over the last several weeks since implemented, and have determined it's necessary to modify our shipping offers effective Monday, February 7, 2022. I hope you understand.
Effective February 7, 2022, orders with the following values will be charged the following rates:
This was far from an easy decision, but I hope you understand given the Country's current situation. Sincerely, Vonda
