2015 Holiday Shipping Update



The clock is tickin' but there is still time to order all of your Grateful Dead and hippie holiday gifts and have them in time for Christmas. 

The elves at Sunshine Daydream are working day and night to get your orders out, but the sooner you order, the better. Supplies of many items in our web store are limited this year, and once we run out, that's it until after the new year.

Orders will now have to go via Priority Mail to make it in time. In stock orders placed by 4 PM Central, will ship the same day. We're located in the Chicago area, and can get your order to you quicker than some of the other guys. We have 3 pickups a day from the post office, so the earlier in the day that you order, the better chance to get it out on the earlier truck. Priority shipping and our Midwest location, put us on either coast in just a few days. Priority Mail is a 2-3 day service, but is NOT guaranteed, although they have been pretty good this year, with our packages at least. The only guaranteed way to get your order is by choosing express mail. It's a 1-2 day service and IT IS guaranteed. It's also very expensive, but no one says to wait till the last minute...

Free Shipping Day
We also offer FREE priority mail shipping on all orders over $100.

Be sure and check your spam or junk folder in your email program. Our order confirmation emails often end up there. You can also add us to your safe senders list and that will solve the problem.
