Margo Anderson's Historic Costume Patterns
P.O. Box 2011
Woodland, CA 95776

Your order will not ship until your payment has been cleared.

Due to the additional time required to retrieve your payment from our PO Box, deposit your check, wait for the payment to clear, and finally mail your order, mail orders may take up to two weeks to ship. For this reason, ordering online is greatly preferred when possible.

Shipping Info:

All shipments will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

Every effort will be made to ship orders within 2 business days. If you have a special need for a rush order, let us know at the time of ordering, and we will make every effort to accomodate you.

Domestic U.S. Shipping:

Domestic U.S. Shipping and handling for one pattern is $5.60; for 2-6 patterns, or any one of our Combo Packs is $12.35.

Our website assigns a shipping charge for each item ordered. In the event that you buy three or more a la carte patterns, you may be charged excess shipping. Any charges over the actual cost ($12.35 for 2-6 patterns) will be refunded through PayPal when your order is processed for shipping.

Orders to California will be assessed 8.25% sales tax.

International Shipping:

Special Note: February 2013

The US Postal Service recently raised their international shipping rates, and by 'raised', I mean they skyrocketed! We are not happy with these increases, as we suspect they will significantly curtail our international orders, but at the end of the day, they're beyond our control. We've investigated alternatives, but even after the increases, USPS is, to the best of our knowledge, the best rates available. We charge you only the actual costs of shipping. But if you know something we're not aware of, some cheaper alternative, please share it with us - we'd love to find a cheaper method of getting our patterns into your hands.

Before checkout, the Shipping Fee shown in your PayPal Shopping Cart is calculated for domestic U.S. rates. Actual charges to destinations outside the U.S. will be higher:

  • Canada, 1 Pattern Shipping: $19.95 USD
  • Canada, Multi-Pattern Shipping: $40.95 USD
  • Other Countries, 1 Pattern Shipping: $23.95 USD
  • Other Countries, Multi- Pattern Shipping: $59.95 USD

The actual amount should be properly calculated once you complete your PayPal checkout. If there are any problems with shipping costs on your order, we will contact you; therefore, it is critical you supply an email address where we can get in touch with you should the need arise so we won't have to delay shipment of your order.

International orders will be shipped via USPS International Priority Mail.
Any customs charges added by the destination country are the responsibility of the customer. As our business is based in the US, we do not know what duty or custom charges may or may not be charged by any given country.

If you have any questions about your order or about shipping, please contact our Business Manager.
