U.S.A. Shipping Service Alert
Sept. 2021: Shipping carriers are currently experiencing slower-than-normal and inconsistent transit times due to increased volume and decreased staffing. This will be especially true (and increasingly frustrating) leading up to the holidays.
International Shipping and VAT
Due to the number of USPS International packages never making it to their destinations in the past year, we have stopped using this service. All international packages will be shipped via UPS or DHL. We know they are more expensive, but they have proven to be the only reliable option during this time.
Effective July 1, 2021, UK and EU member states started collecting value-added tax (VAT) for ALL goods entering the UK and EU. The VAT ranges from 17% to 27% depending on the country. This online shop does NOT collect VAT at checkout so you will be charged by customs upon the goods entering your country. You may also experience “landing fees” when your package goes through customs, sometimes including taxes from the destination country plus a “brokerage fee” from UPS. These fees will be different in every country. We have no control over these fees, nor can we predict them.
