<p class="faqtitle"><a id="socialsiting"></a><strong>I saw a work of yours on a social media site but I cannot find it in your on-line catalog.</strong></p>
<p>Please contact us by <span>e-mail (</span><a href="mailto:info@francespalmerpottery.com">info@francespalmerpottery.com</a>) with any questions you might have about products that you are interested in that are not displayed on our site.  We sometimes exhibit handmade pieces that do not make it to the site, but we  are happy to discuss the availability of these pieces with you at any time.</p>

<p class="faqtitle"><a id="arrive"></a><strong>How long will my order take to arrive?</strong></p>
<p>Because all pieces are made to order and quality is of utmost important to us, the average order takes 3 weeks to craft and approximately one week to ship in the contiguous United States. <br /> <br /> Orders shipping outside the continental United States may take a slightly longer time due to customs clearance. Your order may also be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. These fees are in addition to the cost of your order as we have no control over these charges and cannot unfortunately predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country and we recommend contacting your local customs office for further information before ordering.  </p>

<p class="faqtitle"><a id="shipping"></a><strong>How is my order shipped and how much does it cost?</strong></p>
<p>Handmade items ship from Frances' Connecticut studio to locations within the continental United States via UPS Ground.</p>
<p>Shipping costs for orders shipped <strong>within the continental U.S. </strong>are based on the order amount and calculated automatically by the shopping cart.</p>
<p><strong>Expedited shipping and shipping outside the continental United States</strong> is calculated after the order is packaged and is based on weight and destination. We will contact you with the exact shipping fees  and verify the shipping address before we schedule the shipment.</p>
<p>Please let us know of any special shipping requests in the "Comments" section of the order form.</p>
<p>We provide a tracking number to you once your order is shipped.</p>
