  • Do you offer any discounts?
    If you join our mailing list, you will receive a discount code for 10% off of your first order!! We also send out occasional newsletters for seasonal discounts and special offers, as well as new product announcements.
  • Do you have a wholesale program?
    Sorry, we no longer have a wholesale program. We've tried to lower our prices so that even retail buyers have access to the best prices. Be sure to sign up for the mailing list for a 10% discount code, as well as occasional promotional emails.
  • Do you ship anywhere?
    Yes! With very few exceptions, we will ship anywhere in the world. We try to find the least expensive method possible, while balancing shipping time and cost.
  • Why is your shipping so expensive?
    We do our best to keep shipping costs as low as possible. If for some reason the shopping bag seems to be quoting a very high shipping cost, then it is probably trying to do something wrong. We do consolidate shipping as much as possible, and if you end up paying for a more expensive service than what is required, we will automatically refund the excess. Also feel free to contact us if you have concerns or would like a manually computed shipping quote.
  • What is your "handling charge" used for?"
    Shipping supplies are surprisingly expensive! We use the modest handling charge to help offset the cost of the protective packaging we use while we pack... for example, bubble bags cost about $0.90 each, and we often use 2 per shipment. Larger orders require double-thick-walled boxes, which can cost $4-6 each.
  • What are your handling times?
    For customers who purchase Priority Mail or other expedited shipping methods, I attempt to ship by the next business day. For customers who use my "Free Shipping over $75" promotion, I ship these out Monday afternoons. I try, but can't guarantee, to do an additional free shipping run later in the week, typically on Thursday or Friday.
  • What is your return policy?
    If you are not entirely satisfied with your online purchase, we’re here to help. Items purchased online can be returned within 14 days of the original purchase. A product may be exchanged for another product or returned for a refund. If you purchase directly in person at the warehouse, we do not accept returns. Custom orders are not eligible for return.

Please contact us before you send the product: By email: Shipping instructions will be provided along with an RMA number. ​
  • Who pays for return shipping?
    If you are returning the product due to a problem with the order (the wrong item received, damaged item, etc.), Barnhouse Lapidary will provide you with a shipping label for the return of the item at our cost. If you are returning the product for other reasons, you will be responsible for paying the shipping costs.
