Most orders will ship the day after we receive the order, but we do not ship on Wednesday, Saturday or on Sunday. This means that an order placed on Tuesday afternoon will ship on Thursday, and orders placed Friday afternoon will ship on Monday. Shipping methods refer to time in transit, so a 2-day order will take 2-days of travel to arrive, after it ships out. 

Orders can be delayed an extra day when there is a holiday, a large shipment from Miyuki, or a question about the order. If you need an order to arrive on a particular day, please confirm with us that the arrival time is possible. 

We offer a variety of shipping options to domestic and international addresses sent through UPS, FEDEX and USPS.

You can call or email if there is any question about the shipping estimate. We are shipping from Maine.

International orders

Caravan Beads is not responsible for resolving difficulties with duty and customs for international customers. We will include paperwork as requested, but communication with customs offices and payment of duty or import tax is the responsibility of the customer.
