Christmas is Almost Here - 15% savings

Shipping Deadlines to Get on Santa's Sleigh


Greetings!

I don't know about you, but we had our own Polar Express blow through yesterday, dropping temperatures into the upper teems and wind chills to single digits. And, while pretty and sunny, the temperatures aren't getting much warmer!

I visited with a customer this morning about shipping a gift to Australia, and I was wondering how I could go along to warmer climes! But I will stay here and enjoy this weather, which makes it feel a lot more like the holidays — now where's the snow?

So, we are all bundled up, sipping on some yummy Dude, Sweet Chocolate! Drinking Chocolate — with a bit of cayenne pepper added for a little kick — and working away in our holiday workshop.

Christmas is a week away, and to celebrate, we are offering you 15% savings on all of the discoveries in our shop. Just use this code — "SANTA" — when you checkout.

Here at Pretty Things & Cool Stuff, we give you your choice of carriers to use for your holiday packages: USPS, UPS and FedEx. And, when you are checking out you can check the real-time rates offered by each carrier. We do not mark up our shipping, so the rates you see are the ones actually charged by each carrier for each level of service. 

So, here are the shipping deadlines for each carrier for your package to reach its destination by Christmas Day (and of course, all the carriers have the little asterisk that notes that if Mother Nature decides to whip up some winter-storm-to-beat-all-winter-storms, there could possibly be delays. But those circumstances are few and far between, thank goodness!)

Back to work and more drinking chocolate, please!
