Our Mailing Address:

Email us anytime, anyday!
Longer Available: We no longer have the item, nor can we get any more.
Order Only: The maker still has the item, and we can Special Order
it for you.
of Stock: We have it on reorder, but it hasn't come in yet
(we may be waiting for a shipping date from the factory).
Unless otherwise requested we ship with UPS. Our base shipping
fee is $8.50 but shipping costs have increased over the last two years
in addition to fuel surcharges being added several times as the price
went up on gasoline. We have absorbed these fees for two years now and
finally we have no option but to increase our charges. Additionally, the
Credit Card companies have increased their charges and, although from
the outset of our accepting credit cards we absorbed the total cost involved,
we can not continue with that policy. It has become too costly for us,
in view of the discounts we offer. Henceforth there will be a surcharge
applied to each order equaling 3% of the total cost. We will still absorb
part of the charges but we cannot absorb them all. My apologies for this
but it cannot be helped. As long as the service companies continue to
raise their prices on an annual basis we must as well and the easiest
way to do that is with a surcharge.

Except for the personal letter requirement they are all for first time purchasers only.
About Our Stock of Boxes
Most boxes in our catalog are here, in our stock, ready to be shipped
to you on the day on which your order is given us. If we are out of a
box you may be sure that it is on reorder and due in shortly. Once in
a great while, the maker is "out of stock" on a piece we reorder,
and then it means waiting until the merchandise arrives from France. That
can take, in some cases, as long as three months until we receive our
new stock on it. We will tell you if that is the case. We do not normally
have the makers drop ship the merchandise to you, as some catalogs do.
We own all of the boxes in our catalog, currently in excess of 700
Special Orders require a deposit of $50.00 at the time
the order is placed.
Your Privacy at The Perfect Gift
Your privacy is important to us. We do not share or sell
information to anyone, not email lists, not customer lists, not material
in the catalog, nothing at all.
No one other than Elayne has access to any of the information we hold
on behalf of our customers. None of it is stored in any computer (with
the exception of email addresses). We believe the only way for information
really to be secure is not to be on the computer. That's one of the reasons
we do not take credit cards online. If you have any further concerns about
this issue just call us at our toll free number, 1-866-215-4438, and we
will be happy to discuss them with you.
