Each order is carefully bubble wrapped and shipped in a new box filled with packaging material to keep your pieces protected during transit. Please check the integrity of the packaging before accepting your order. We recommend refusing the package if it has been obviously damaged or tampered with. If you suspect damage due to a package with holes, dents, or excessive tape (as if repackaged), PLEASE inspect your order before accepting the package. Please note, for international shipments, customs officials may open and examine package contents. In that case, the package will be resealed and officially stamped before being delivered. 


If a package is returned because the buyer provided the wrong address or has not claimed a package after the delivery attempt, a refund will not be issued. The buyer must repay the shipping costs before the order can be shipped again. 


Shipping a handcrafted shelf or home decor piece outside the continental US may be $200 or more. If you are interested in receiving a quote for an international delivery, please contact and provide the shipping address. We will get back to you with an estimated international shipping quote. You may be required to pay additional customs fees or duty taxes to receive your order. J THOMAS HOME is not responsible for additional fees or taxes. If the shipping cost is less that the rate charged at checkout, J THOMAS HOME will issue a refund of the difference.


We process our orders in the order we receive them. That means that there are a few folks who are excited for us to finish up and ship their shelves, first. That means most of our products take about 3-5 business days (Monday - Friday) to be handcrafted and boxed to ship.

Custom orders have a 2-3 week turnaround once the payment has been made and the details regarding your order have been discussed with J THOMAS HOME.

Once shipped, orders usually take about 3-4 days from our door to yours (Monday - Saturday). All orders are shipped via UPS, FedEx, or USPS. You will receive a tracking number once your order has shipped.


We have discounted rates with the "Big 3" shipping companies: UPS, FedEx and USPS. Because our items can often be quite heavy (solid wood shelves and heavy iron pipes, etc.), we choose the carrier that provides the best and most reliable shipping, including package handling, speed of delivery, and cost of postage. We reserve the right to ship using any one of these carriers to fulfill any order placed through the shop.
