In case you missed it, a month or so ago we split the kids line from Tales of a Peanut into its own shop called miniPeanuts. They’re the same great products made by the same people, but they’re a little less overwhelming to look at since we revamped their listings and gave them their own space. Sometimes, like at our Sip and Shop, miniPeanuts and Tales of a Peanut function as the same business — since they actually are. But for the purpose of their holiday schedules, miniPeanuts will have different cutoff dates due to the longer lead time in their product creation.
We love our clients and love making their holiday season easier and better, but we also want to spend time with our family this season and not allow our work to take over. So to that end, we’re setting up some strict holiday deadlines and are determined to stick with them. While we would love to serve everyone who reaches out to us, if it is after one of these deadlines we hope that you’ll understand our desire to savor that time with our family.
With that being said, the above is our shopping schedule for 2015. We will be hosting a huge After Thanksgiving sale this coming Friday through Monday. You’ll find out more about that sale as well as a lengthy list of other shops who are hosting sales in a blog post on Wednesday.
November 30 will be the last day for international orders with our regular shipping prices. We will ship these orders via USPS First Class International Service with an expected delivery date by December 24th. miniPeanuts cannot guarantee delivery by Christmas, but will guarantee that your order will go out before the cutoff date that the USPS sets for First Class International Service. If you are international and would like more assurance of your order delivery, please email us before purchasing so that we can upgrade your shipping.
Orders Within the United States
December 7 will be the last day for orders shipping within the United States. We will ship these orders via USPS First Class Mail as described in our listing information. This date will allow us to work with you on your custom design and get your order created and shipped before the cutoff date that the USPS sets for First Class Service for an expected delivery date by December 24th. miniPeanuts cannot guarantee delivery by Christmas but will guarantee that your order will be shipped before that cutoff date. miniPeanuts will not be held responsible for missing this ship date if you are not available and accessible for proof approval before December 9.
Orders Within the United States with a Rush Fee
December 10 will be the last day for orders shipping within the United States but these orders will incur an additional rush fee. This fee will be $25 per order as well as an increase in the shipping costs. These orders will ship via USPS Priority Mail for an expected delivery date by December 24th. miniPeanuts cannot guarantee delivery by Christmas but will guarantee that your order will be shipped before that cutoff date. miniPeanuts will not be held responsible for missing this ship date if you are not available and accessible for proof approval before December 12.
Tales of a Peanut and miniPeanuts will be effectively closed from December 18, 2015 – January 3, 2016. Our shop will still be open for orders but no orders will ship before January 4, 2016. If custom orders are placed during this time, the order will not be worked on until January 4. Closing for this time period will allow us to spend time enjoying the holidays with our family as well as allow time to plan for the future of Tales of a Peanut and miniPeanuts in 2016.
Thank you so much for all that you have done for us in 2015. We are so blessed to have the best customers and are so thankful that we get to serve you. We hope that you understand these deadlines and are happy to answer any questions that you might have. You may either fill out a contact request or email us with any questions or concerns. You can shop all of our products in our Etsy shop. If you’re interested in our adults line, Tales of a Peanut, then go back to one post previous for their holiday schedule.
