Payment Options
When you place an order, you will be given several payment options to choose from. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and PayPal. Customer credit cards will be billed as "Midnight Muse."

You may also pay with personal checks or money orders via US mail, but please note that mailed payments must be received within 15 business days or the order will be cancelled.

Shipping Time, Method, & Estimated Costs
We ship via U.S. Priority Mail to the US and territories. The postage rates in the shopping cart are estimated, but are nearly always within $1 or so of the actual rates.

Please allow 7-14 days for delivery in most cases. Occasionally there is a lag time for filling an order because we have gone out of stock on an item and are waiting on a shipment from our suppliers. If an order will take longer than 21 days to fill, we will contact you, or you can enquire with us for an estimated arrival date.

Important: If you need your purchase quickly, e.g., for a birthday gift, PLEASE LET US KNOW, and we will let you know whether or not it can be shipped in time. We will make every effort to accommodate your wishes, but we have no way of knowing that an order is time-sensitive unless you tell us.

International Customers
International customers, we welcome your orders, but please contact us for shipping estimates to your country and allow us to set up a payment page for your shipping costs. In most cases the U.S. postal rates are NOT adequate for shipping overseas. We cannot ship your order until proper postage has been paid.

Damaged in Transit?
If your order arrived damaged, contact us. We will pursue insurance compensation with the post office.

Our Return Policy
Please note change in policy effective 3-19-04:

- Merchandise may be returned for store credit or exchange only; no refunds will be given.
- Returns must be made within 30 days.
- Special-order items (e.g., 4 necklaces of the same color for a wedding party) are not returnable.
- We will accept exchanges only for items returned to us in like new condition. We cannot refund payment for returned items which reach us damaged.
- Shipping costs for sending back merchandise to us are the responsibility of the customer. Returns for exchange are for the amount of the item only; we cannot include shipping costs in that amount, as that money went to the post office and was never ours to begin with. In other words, if you buy something for $20 and pay $5 shipping, then return it to us, your store credit or exchange amount will be $20, not $25.

Please feel free to contact us at any time with ordering questions.

Our Affiliate Items (Art Prints, Films, & Music)
We have an extensive and thoughtfully-chosen selection of affiliate items to supplement our regular merchandise, and hope you will find something to tickle your fancy, improve your mind, beautify your home, honor your gods, delight your friends, evoke your emotions, or simply entertain you.

Q. What are "affiliate items?"
A. These are items for sale through the websites of larger companies (like Amazon.com and Allposters.com), to which we have linked. We receive a small commission on any items you purchase from the larger companies via a link at our site. The affiliate program allows us to present you with a greater number of beautiful items, which we carefully select to harmonize with our site and our other merchandise.

Q. How exactly does the affiliate ordering process work?
A. Say, for example, you wish to purchase an art print from us, but there is no button saying 'add to cart.' Simply click on the image, or the links next to the image, and you will be taken to an 'affiliate' art site where you can find out more about the item. Then, should you decide to order, you simply follow that company's ordering instructions. They are the ones who ship to you. Any returns or problems should also be directed to them.
