Do you charge sales tax?
Nope - there is NO SALES TAX in Oregon, and the love extends to you.
When will I get my order?
Most orders are shipped out on the day of purchase, however please allow up to 72 hours for orders to process. Upgrading shipping does not speed up processing time - it only increases the time once shipped. If you have a special request, please contact us before placing your order to be sure we can accommodate your needs. We typically ship USPS or FedEx - the tracking number will reflect the carrier used.
FREE Shipping on orders over $49
We offer $5 flat-rate shipping on all orders, and FREE shipping on orders over $49 in the continental US ONLY. However, a few of our vendors require that we charge shipping on their products. We charge the minimum amount agreed upon with that vendor. This means that these particular items shouldn't be available anywhere else on the web at a better price. If they are though…we will be happy to price match. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call. 503-235-2855.
Because some large toys, furniture or other items are bulky and heavy, our cost to ship them is higher than standard apparel and accessory items. Therefore, these large items may have a delivery surcharge which is applied as "Oversized Freight” charges. These are in addition to regular delivery charges and are stated within each applicable item on our site.
At this time we are unable to fulfill international orders, and any orders placed internationally will be canceled. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
We have the right to cancel any order at any time. This could be, but is not limited to: Oversell, Fruad, or other situations we determine are necessary to cancel your order.

Online Gift Cards
When you have purchased your online gift certificate, you will be sent an email with a redemption code. Purchasers are responsible for providing an accurate and deliverable e-mail address. When you redeem that code either by clicking on the link in the email sent to you or by keying in the code on the checkout-payment page (or the GC-redemption screen), then you will have GC funds available to you for use in that or future transactions.
You can then use those funds for yourself, or you can email them to friend(s) via the links provided automatically in the store. You can email as many as you want, to various people, up to the amount you've purchased. Whoever you email it to will receive a new redemption code and will follow the same redemption process...and they can email the funds again if they wish.

Customer Rewards Program
At this time we offer a rewards program for in-store purchases, only.
As a thank you for your in-store support, for every $300 you spend on qualifying purchases in the store, you will receive a $30 credit to spend in the store on qualifying items. We need a first and last name, as well as an additional piece of identifying information, to enter you into our system and track your dollars spent. Your name must be given before each purchase transaction is complete, otherwise we cannot credit the purchase – there is no way to go back retroactively in the system.
The $300 can be cumulative from multiple purchases. $30 credits will be earned for every $300 spent (if $600+ is spent in a single transaction, you would earn 2+ $30 credits).
$30 credits will be activated 30 days from the date of the final qualifying purchase, to account for our 30-day return policy. Credit will be valid for one year. $30 credits need to be used at one time, on a qualifying purchase of $30 or more. Only one $30 credit can be used per transaction. Credit will only be granted after an item is sold, so down payments will not be counted until the item is received and sold. $30 credits cannot apply to the purchase of a gift card or to pay off an account.
This program is subject to change at any time, but dollar balances toward rewards and existing credits at the time of any changes will remain in place and valid.
There may be brand-specific exceptions to the earning and use of reward credits.
