We sell hand crafted products that require care and common sense use by the consumer.  Pottery and glassware do not have a warranty, the consumer needs to exercise care in use.  Don't place a hot item from the oven or microwave on a stone or tile counter.  Don't use a pottery item to cook long times in a microwave, use a glass, Pyrex container. If you have a question, call us.  Furniture is NOT warranted due to the fact we have no know or control of the environment it is placed.  The consumer MUST exercise proper care.



We try to ship all in stock products within 2 to 3 business days. Most products are shipped next day. Occasionally issues arise that are beyond our control that incur additional shipping times (i.e., manufacturers experiencing a backup in production). If this occurs you will be contacted as soon as we are made aware that a problem exists but we can not be responsible for delays from the manufacturer, shipper, delivery company or US Customs. Special order items are NOT Cancelable nor will any credit be issued for delays beyond our control. If you need expedited shipping please let us know. As a consumer you must allow sufficient time for custom / special orders. Furniture will require upto 8 to 10+ weeks (sometimes longer), linens may require up to six or seven weeks. We have no control over crafting time for furniture or pottery. Please do not count on having items by a date certain. Custom made items take time to craft, we use craftsmen that don't cut corners, please allow sufficient time for manufacturer and delivery. Furniture delivery is limited to weekdays or special deliveries on Sundays. Our own furniture deliveries will be brought into to your house provided there are no more than 4 to 6 steps, the door is wide enough to fit the item.

The American Heritage Shop cares about the environment and want our children to be able to enjoy of the beauties and conveniences we have had the luxury of using.  That is why we reuse and/or recycles almost 100% of its packaging materials in an effort to send as little as possible to the land fills; thus saving energy, petroleum resources, and woodland resources.  Therefore, when you receive your package, please don't be put off by the reused box or shipping materials.  We also request that you kindly recycle the packaging materials you receive from us. Together we can all make a difference.



We provide ground shipping to addresses within the continental United States via FedEx Ground.  Expedited delivery services are available at an additional cost.  Furniture is shipped via PackShip. We do not add any handling or packing charges, we pass through the actual shipping charges for your sale not a percentage of the sale. 

Delivery Charges

We ship via Federal Express Ground and offer FedEx Express Delivery when requested at an additional charge. We charge the actual cost of shipping your package, not a percentage so until your package is packed & weighted we can not give you an exact cost.  If you live in a rural area far from major towns it will cost more.  High value items must be signed for - you may have items delivered to your business, your neighbor or another person that can sign for receipt. We do not ship overseas or to Canada or Mexico.  Sorry at this time we do NOT ship to APO addresses due to excessive damages.


If you receive an item that is damaged - Call us immediately!  We will have the delivery company pickup the damaged items and reship your desired item from our stock.  Please note that you MUST open the package within 72 hours of its receipt to inspect the items.   We can not be responsible for packages not opened and inspected within 72 hours of receipt.  You MUST retain the package and damaged item for the delivery company to inspect.  Please note we have NO Control over delivery or shipping times, we can not make adjustments or credit due to delivery problems.



We try to offer unique hand crafted merchandise from Artisans in the United States, especially Pennsylvania, Canada and Old World Europe (England, France, Italy, Poland).  We strive NOT to purchase items made in China or India so we will not add to our trade imbalance.  Over 96 percent of our goods offered come from the United States, Canada and Old World Europe.  That might cost a little more but quality and product safety will provide you peace of mind when you give or use our products.
