Why do you only use USPS?
We live in a very rural area. The closest UPS drop off location is 25 miles away and other UPS pick up services are not economical. At this point in our business, it is not cost effective to use UPS. If you would REALLY prefer to have your items shipped via UPS, we can accomodate your request, but we may not be able to get your goodies to you as quickly as we can using USPS. Feel free to contact us with any shipping questions or concerns.
For International Shipping, please us the International BUY button.
Why is your business called Texas Creek but you live in Washington?
Because there really is a creek by the name of Texas Creek right outside our front door.
