Yep, we combine shipping. Just use the shopping cart.
Many people are unaware of the shopping cart and purchase multiple items and go through the checkout process over and over. (It\'s like going through the checkout at a grocery store.......paying for one item at a time).
The shopping cart is so much easier because it allows you to checkout with all your items once.
If you put all your items in the cart and then checkout, we\'ll ship everything together and refund any shipping charges over $2 (if there are any) of the actual shipping cost.
Please keep in mind that most of our products will automatically show a discount when placed in the cart when shipped with another item and/or multiple quantities.
Just place everything you need in your cart and pay once! It’s that simple.
Thanks so much. We\'ll ship your order as fast as we can.
QWhat is the difference between Cotton wire & Rayon wire?
ABoth our cotton and rayon are considered historically accurate reproductions. The difference between the two types of fabric is basically the “look”. By appearance, cotton is flat and rayon is a little shiny. Kind of like the appearance of paint—flat paint is dull (cotton) in appearance and semi-gloss (rayon) has a little shinier appearance.Rayon is an imitation of silk (because silk is expensive) and cotton is cotton. The actual copper wire itself and plastic sheathing are the exact same, only the cloth covering (which covers the wire and sheath) are different.Whether you choose cotton or rayon is a personal preference.
QWhat if my Tracking Information shows problems?
AAlthough the tracking information may show that a label has been created and nothing more, or a package has stopped, that is not always the case.
Most of the time, packages still go to their destination and arrive as they normally would. Many times this happens due to holidays, inclement weather, transportation issues, etc.
But it’s kind of like the old days (before scanning/tracking technology existed). For a hundred years or so, packages were shipped and moved along to their destination without being scanned/tracked and were delivered just fine. We have no idea if that is the case for your particular package, but sometimes the scanning/technology doesn’t work and you may believe that nothing is happening. Yes, packages have been lost and will get lost at times, but it is very rare.Just because technology isn’t working for your tracking number doesn’t mean they stop the package from continuing on to its final destination—it still moves along. Depending on how far you live from Amherst, Ohio, you’ll probably see yours in the next couple of days.
QCan you tell me how to wire my light?
ANot trying to be mean at all, but we cannot tell you how to wire a light/lamp as we cannot be held responsible if something is not wired correctly. There are many tutorials on the internet that may be of help to you.
Here is some general information regarding Electrical Safety and Color Coding:
Even though not all wires carry electrical current, it\'s best to assume that all wires have the potential to be \"live\" and carry current.
Black: This is a live “hot” wire carrying electrical current. This is usually connected to a gold or brass colored screw.
White: This is the neutral wire and is usually connected to a silver colored screw.
Green or Bare: This is usually connected to a “ground” or a green screw (if required or available).As always, we recommend you seek a licensed/certified electrician for any electrical work or advice
