Our online shop is closed for restocking until Wednesday, September 20. Our local shop at the NC State Fairgrounds is closed until November 6 to make room for the fair, but we'll be back November 6!

Shopping & Shipping FAQ


Do you have a physical shop?

Yes! We're part of The Raleigh Market at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds (1025 Blue Ridge Road in Raleigh). Our shop is open Saturdays and Sundays from 9-5 in Education Building 1. 

How do you ship?

We ship USPS Priority Mail.

How much will it cost?

We love free shipping, and we know you do too! But we also know (and we know you know) that "free" shipping is built into the price of the product—it isn't really free. And just like you, we get frustrated when we shop online only to find at checkout that shipping is way more than we anticipated. So to give you the best product price, and so that you'll never be unpleasantly surprised, your shipping cost will never be more than $8, so go ahead and load up that cart! 

How can I pay?

You can choose to use Paypal to process payment using a credit card or your Paypal balance, or you can use your Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card on our checkout page. Either way, your payment is processed securely, and we never even see your credit card number.

Do you have a catalog?

We do not have a catalog at this time.

What if I want to purchase a product that I saw at your Raleigh shop or at a festival, but it's not listed on your website?

No problem! Just email us your request, and we'll email you with the purchase total. If it meets your approval, we'll send you a special order link.

I've read your Privacy Statement, and I don't want to opt in. How should I contact you to place an order?

Email your order to carol@blinkingtoad.com, and we will send you a paypal invoice. You can read Paypal's Consumer Privacy Notice here: http://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.
