When do you ship?
I sell either from inventory or drop ship from wonderful, responsive suppliers. A few items I will order and then ship, I do this because of the quality and value of the product. Inventory items are usually shipped the next day, if the timing is right I will ship same day, the Post Office by me is open till 7pm. Drop shipping depends upon the supplier but I can tell you that most are fast shippers. For example, all the bird and related items are shipped very fast. If I have to order the item I will notify you and give you an estimated date for your approval, please note though, this is the exception. I will work with you to fill your order even if it means using another supplier and not making any profit. I have done that before and will do it again as I would rather have a pleased customer (and hopefully future orders) rather than turn someone away.
Please feel free to email or call me before you order if you have any questions about shipping or anything else. Contact me at SweetPeaTea@optimum.net or 732.668.1993.
Are these the only products you sell?
At last count I have over 1,500 products listed but I have at least another 1,000 products to be added. In fact, on October of 2008 I just signed on with and organic supplier of bath & beauty, tea and spice products and will begin add those products. I am constantly adding products so you can check daily, if you want, to see new or changed listings.
I like to sell natural and even organic products including bath and body, tea (and some coffee), gardening decor products. If you don't see what you are looking for I may have access to it but just not listed it. I will search for items for you if you would like. For example, is there a special soap that you like but can no longer buy it locally? Please let me know and I'll be glad to search for it. I love to learn about new products! Contact me at SweetPeaTea@optimum.net or 732.668.1993.
Do you sell in large quantities?
Yes I do. I will work with you to find a price that we can both agree to for larger quantities. Please remember though that some of these products are made by hand and it may not be possible to order very large quantities. For example, my beeswax soaps, honey, lemongrass, spearmint, lavender and oatmeal, are made by hand by my beekeeper here in NJ. I can get you 10-20 bars but larger quantities may be a problem. However, I would be glad to search for other suppliers to fill your order.
Some items I can get you quantities of 100's or more. For example, I had a customer interested in a particular fleece blanket with an image of a bass. It turned out that the original supplier no longer had them (I no longer work with that supplier) and so I found a company that would make a close copy at a very competitive price.

What is Sweet Pea Tea's philosophy?
My goal is to sell quality, natural and eco-friendly products using local suppliers if possible. Many of my products are made by individuals such as many of the soaps and the honey. I am always interested in new products so please feel free to suggest them to me. Contact me at SweetPeaTea@optimum.net or 732.668.1993.
What charities to you help?
At this time I am working with two. I donate time and money to The Myositis Association, www.tma.org. I've raised several thousands of dollars for them. I also sell products for The Erie Lackawanna Dining Care Preservation Society at no profit, that is, all the money for those items goes to that organization. I have plans to add some special products for autism research and a few other groups. If I can assist your organization in this manner please contact me at SweetPeaTea@optimum.net.
Do you sponsor any fund raising?
I would be happy to work with you in fund raising. For example, I have a supplier that makes just wonderful pot pies and fruit pies (and even frozen quail, pheasant, duck and fresh turkeys). Not your ordinary ways to make money but certainly different and unique! I can do candles, snacks, beverages, actually most of my products can be adapted to fund raising. Contact me and let's talk! SweetPeaTea@optimum.net or 732.668.1993.
Do you deliver?
Some of my items, such as the bottled beverages, are really very heavy to ship. For example, the one case of Calypso All Natural Lemonade is 27 pounds. I do offer delivery if the distance is not too far. I can even meet you at a convenient location. I am located in Bound Brook, NJ for reference. Please contact me so we can discuss. SweetPeaTea@optimum.net or 732.668.1993.
What is your return policy?
Most items are returnable except for opened products like soap or beverages, etc. Please contact me before returning anything. Some items may have a restocking fee. Special order items may not be returnable.
I want to purchase one box of tea but the shipping charge is too high.
This is a dilemma for me as I have many products from several sources and the weight of these products varies from several ounces to 35 pounds. To add to this one supplier ships directly but only via FedEx ground. There are a few solutions that I am working on bu the shipping options on eCrater are a bit limited.
However, having stated all this, if you email me at SweetPeaTea@optimum.net I can work with you to provide you with a shipping rate close to the actual shipping cost.
