Do you have another on-line store?
Yes, we have sold on eBay for the last four years under the flags1776 ID and carry an excellent feedback history! We also have our own on-line store, www.theflagco.com. Although we are new to eCRATER you can still expect excellent customer service and a pleasant shopping experience!
Do you combine shipping?
Yes, shipping fees are listed in each listing. The lighter weight items are shipped free of charge to you. When purchasing more than one item, please feel free to e-mail us for the combined shipping, including your state and zip code. I will then determine the least expensive shipping method. Combined shipping discounts apply when one payment is made and all items go to the same address. If you over pay the shipping charges at the time of check-out, a refund will be made to your paypal account.
Items shipping by UPS are indicated in the listing. We are happy to expediate the freight, please email us with your zip code.
Are your flags new?
Yes, all the flags shown on my store are new. Most will be shipped in the original box. In order to save on postage,
some flags will be removed from the original box to ship in the US Postal Service Priority Mail packaging. Please let us know if the flag you are buying is a gift, special shipping arrangements will be made.
