HOW TO ORDER BLOWN EGGS
PLEASE READ: I know it’s long, but it is important Be sure to include your mailing address with your order (even if you are a regular customer) It helps to speed things up.
We do not use any chemicals in our cleaning process so all of our eggs take Pysanky and other types of dyes very well. When possible our eggs are cleaned through 1 hole drilled dead center in the large end of the egg with the smallest drill bit possible. However, it is sometimes necessary on the smaller eggs to use 2 holes. When that becomes necessary (to keep the egg from imploding during cleaning) the second hole is the size of a needle point.
Now, For the ordering part: We deliberately do not have an on-line order form. That is because our inventory changes daily. Here’s what you do: Once you have decided on which eggs you are interested in please send us an email telling us which eggs you would like, and the quantity of each kind. We will check our inventory and email an invoice through Paypal to you with the total amount of your order including S&H (if you have given us your mailing address) You do not have to have a Paypal account to use them as a secure method of credit card payment, you can check out as a “guest” following their simple instructions. We also accept domestic money orders and checks.
All orders are shipped via Priority Mail unless other arrangements are made. S&H is calculated by the size of the box and the total weight of the eggs and box. (our handling fee is only $3.50 above that to help cover the cost of the box, packing materials, labels, trips to the P.O etc.) We try to keep shipping as low as possible. If we are out of a particular item, we will contact you via e-mail and let you know, otherwise sit tight and you will receive an invoice as soon as possible.
