When will there be a Wild About Music in MY city?
Wild About Music has national and international expansion plans.
We are planning to open retail stores in several key music cities with well developed
tourism focuses, and a demonstrated history, appreciation and presence of music & art
as part of the local cultural landscape. Watch our newsletter for announcements in the future.
Do you have a printed catalog?
No, we do not print a catalog. Because our selection is so unique and availability changes
so quickly, a printed catalog would be inefficient. We commit to frequently changing the
merchandise on our e-commerce site to bring you new music related products and gifts. We
carry thousands of products in our physical store and are happy to fulfill special
requests. Please e-mail us with your needs--(ie: music genre, instrument, type of items
and a price range) and we will do our best to help with suggestions.
How can I submit MUSICALLY THEMED merchandise or art for consideration?
Wild About Music is happy to consider consignment of new art for it's physical location
and web site. You may send submission packets for art that include color copies,
reproductions, photos or slides, price lists and biographical information about
yourself-the artist. DO NOT SEND ORIGINAL ART as we will not be able to return submission
packets. We also review art in our physical location by appointment only. Space and time
is very limited and we are only able to respond to art that we have an interest in.
Merchandise will be considered for purchase when a catalog, photos or sample and a price
sheet is submitted and Net 30 terms are granted. We cannot return samples. Please mail ALL
of the above to Wild About Music, PO Box 1445, Austin, TX 78767 Attn.: Buyer/Gallery

How do you determine your shipping charges?
We ship UPS ground within the continental USA and our shipping rates reflect those charges as
well as our packaging charges. Our minimum cost to ship any package is $8.00 (and up) which covers the UPS charge and materials used. We DO NOT make any profit on shipping but try to break even in order to offer our goods to everyone worldwide. Our shipping charges are automatically generated by our webserver based on dollars purchased and thus represent an average. Sometimes several high dollar lightweight small items (ie: $50 shirts) can trigger a shipping cost that may seem high. You are always welcome to phone us and request that your package be requoted. If we can save you any money we will be happy to let you know. Very large bulky orders can also be shipped by private carrier. Please remember there is always a human being available at 877-370-1700 to discuss your special shipping needs and try to get you the best deal possible. Items that are bulky or need special packaging will incur an additional shipping
charge which is noted on the item. We can expedite your order for an additional charge. You will be instructed to email us or call for a quote when you finish your order. If your shipment is oversized, must be shipped in multiple cartons, or for any reason we cannot ship the items you ordered within our normal pricing guidelines, or you request special services,
we will call you with a shipping quote for your approval before we ship. We can ship
internationally and we use many methods to keep the cost at a minimum, all
shipments outside of the continental USA MUST be quoted and our regular shipping charges DO NOT apply. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE OUR SHIPPING POLICY AND CHARGES AT ANYTIME.
