I will always combine shipping to get you the best deal possible. There just isn't a place in eCrater to set that up so I have to do it manually after you order.
I live in Small Town USA and don't have a handy dry cleaner. Well, unless you count the counter in the grocery store that's 15 miles away :O This is the reason that some of my ties and clothes will need to be cleaned. If I'm going to the city, I'll take them in and have them done but that doesn't happen often. I've seen 99cent dry cleaners and very cheap ones on my trips so I take off a few dollars from what I would normally charge.
I'm not the fastest shipper but I do my best. If you need it right away, let me know that and I'll send it the next day.
If I've seriously misrepresented the item, I'm always happy to take it back. (Things can slip by once in awhile). If you just don't like the item or it doesnt' fit, I'll take it back minus postage.
