W.F. Mason, being a sole proprietorship, does not have the capabilities of mass production. A deposit isn't necessary until your job is started, which could be months out. If potential customers wait until October or November to order, delivery cannot be guaranteed for the next season. We accept cash, checks or money orders made out to "W.F. Mason". Credit card customers should use the PayPal option. Within the State of Maine we have to charge 5% sales tax. Large items (and small ones, too) can be picked up in Porter, Maine or shipped by truck. Contact us for shipping fees.
