*Last date on which an order is reasonably expected to reach its destination by December 25, 2023.  This is not a guarantee. It is an estimate only, and applies only to items that don’t require special handling. Does not apply to (A) custom/made-to-order items; (B) items requiring special handling; or (C) bulky items. Excludes time periods when the shipper is waiting for you to respond to them. As a marketplace, we depend on the sellers for fulfillment and are not responsible if the seller is unable to promptly fulfill your order. Because items from 1stdibs are often high-value/unique/irreplaceable, we may use specialized shippers whose holiday capacity may be limited and who may require more time to ensure safe delivery.
