Shipping from United States

I ship to the United States of America (all 50 of them), APOs, FPOs, DPOs, Puerto Rico, the United States Virgin Islands, American Samoa, The Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam.

Your package is important to you AND me.

I ALWAYS reimburse you if the shipping is less than estimated by the Etsy calculator.

I NEVER request additional funds if the shipping is more than estimated.

If payment is received by 8:00 PM Eastern Time, then the package will usually be in the mail the NEXT day. [I end my work day about 9:00 PM.]

I normally ship within one business day of payment and I usually ship SIX days a week. I live in a small town, so my post office is normally only open 29 hours per week. I don't have a problem working around their tight schedule.

Once again - your package is IMPORTANT, not only to you, but also to me.

AtMemoryLane is located in the USA. I sell to the 50 US states, as well as, the US Territories and United States DPOs, APOs, and FPOs.

Information retained by AtMemoryLane includes the information that is part of an electronic sale. This sale could be in the Etsy marketplace at my shop, called AtMemoryLane, or it could be in my Etsy pattern shop, also called AtMemoryLane. The information that is included is information that has been provided by the buyer – which is their name and address. Additionally, any messages sent to the seller via the Etsy conversation system will also be retained on the Etsy site. None of this information is used for any type of marketing, spamming, or solicitation on my part. (And I will not be sending you a Christmas card either.) The information is and was used exclusively for your transaction. The financial information (credit card info) is not provided to the sellers on Etsy so there is nothing to worry about there. Contact information (your name and address) is used exclusively to contact you regarding the items you purchased (if need be), to fulfill your order, and if necessary for legal reasons (for instance for tax purposes). We, Etsy sellers, do not have access to your billing address if it is different from your mailing address. As noted above, Etsy is the only one that even has access to that information; sellers on Etsy do not.

I may use any photos that you might share with me for promotional or selling purposes.

Thank you for reading this.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it normally take you to ship an item?

All orders received by 8:00 PM Eastern Time are processed (mailed) the next day. I ship daily six days a week --- except when there is a holiday.
In the last year, my statistics show that I ship 100% in 1 day or less; in fact, I have shipped 79% of the time the next business day and 21% of the time same day. (Updated July 01, 2020).

What do you do if the shipping calculator has over estimated or under estimated the shipping charges?

If the shipping calculation is over by more than 25 cents, I will reimburse you. Yup, I will reimburse you 25 cents.

If the shipping calculator is under by any amount, you will not know about it; that is, I will not request that you make any further payment because of an error of mine, the calculator, or the system.

If I contact you, when can I expect a reply? What are your normal working hours?

My normal hours Sunday through Thursday are 1:00 PM until 9:00 PM Eastern Standard Time AND Friday and Saturday 3:00 PM until 9:00 PM EST. During these hours, I will normally get back to you immediately or within two hours of your request. Please note that I ship six days a week.
On my off hours, I will normally return your question as soon as I open up for the day.

I do not operate with any smart devices - only dumb ones, as they simply do not work in dead zones, so I periodically throughout my day check the old desktop.

Are there any other requirements to return an item? For what reasons do you allow returns?

1. You, the buyer, shall ensure the items are received by me in the SAME condition in which you received it. You are not required to use the original packaging and box. Feel free to use your own if you so desire
2. In addition, please provide me, via a convo, the tracking number within one calendar week of receiving the item.

Returns can be made for any reason whatsoever. You will receive the original cost of the item, the original shipping, and the handling fee (if any). I do not charge a bogus restocking fee or any other fees. Be aware that the cost to return the item (shipping) will not be reimbursed to you.

Do I, the buyer, pay for shipping insurance?

As you may or may not be aware, shipping insurance benefits the seller. I normally pay for the insurance, if any. The only time, you (the buyer) would pay for the insurance is if YOU request it.

I do not normally buy additional insurance as I tend to pack for a nuclear blast...or, at least, for war.

What are your requirements if I am to pay by money order?

The only money orders that are acceptable are USPS money orders. All other money orders will be returned upon receipt and the transaction will be cancelled.

Money orders are to be received by me within EIGHT calendar days. When the money order is not received within the 8 calendar days, then the transaction will be cancelled. I suggest, although it is not required, that these be sent with tracking. The item will be shipped once the money order has been received and cashed by me.

Once again, the only money orders that are permitted are UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE money orders.
Once again, the USPS money orders must be received by me within EIGHT CALENDAR DAYS of the sale.

Do you accept offers?

NO, I am sorry. I do not.

I do, however, encourage you to shop around. In many of my listings, I leave a reference at the bottom of the description to assist you in your research. This way, you will be able to compare apples with apples.


Simply "tick" the radio button on the left hand side of your search screen under


"Ready to Ship in 1 Business Day".

When you do this, you will get results for all the shops in the etsy marketplace that have your item and ship within one business day OR LESS.

Pretty Neat, Huh?

Why wait when you don't have to?

Do you have any sales going on right now?

I have currently half priced a couple of items in my etsy marketplace store (AtMemoryLane.store) and several more items in my sister stand alone shop (AtMemoryLane.shop).

In addition, I have temporarily reduced a few items in my marketplace shop, as well as, additional items AtMemoryLane.shop.

If you are interested, you can get to AtMemoryLane.shop via any browser.

Are you going on vacation anytime soon?
