- Shipping: All DOMESTIC shipping charges INCLUDE insurance. We have enjoyed shipping our items all over the world and are happy to offer most of our items to international buyers. Yet insuring International parcels is very expensive so PLEASE NOTE; we do NOT insure International orders unless winning buyer specifically requests this and we are able to provide an insurance quote. We do not falsify information on the Customs Form, such as a price other than what the actual purchase price is, so please do not request us to do so. We ship several times a week and send payment acknowledgments and shipping confirmations. Your prompt payment will assure a very quick turn-around time. IMPORTANT NOTE: If our shipping charge is much more than the actual shipping cost, we will refund the excess so what YOU pay for shipping/insurance is very close to the ACTUAL shipping costs!
A small souvenir mug from a small American town! It is shaped just like a beer mug, but made with OLD custard glass. Back in the day these little souvenir custard glass cups / mugs were often won at small-town fairs, or sold in small businesses to advertise the town. These are often referred to as " tooth pick holders " as I guess that is what they were used for besides decoration. A super nice example here,check it out!
