Well I'm listing lots of new things in the shop today and like everyone, I'm really bummed out about the new shipping rate increases!
I just did some intense research on shipping, busted out my scale and weighed some stuff to determine how cheaply I can ship things. I desperately wanted to be able to fit my coats in a small flat rate box but try as I may, I can't fold a full length wool coat into the size of a VHS tape. Believe me, I did attempt it, though!
Can you believe that shipping a coat to the UK using flat rate boxes is about 60 bucks? Holy cow!! I did figure out that I can ship the same coat in my own box for $38.95 using First Class Package International Service. Still not a fantastic rate but better than $60! So, I'm doing my best to fold things up pretty small, wrap 'em up and fit them in a little package for you guys.
Ship to US
dresses, blouses, most skirts- ship in Priority Mail flat rate padded envelope $6.00
huge coats and other heavy garments like that ship in medium priority mail flat rate box $12.95
Ship to Canada
dresses, blouses, most skirts- ship in Priority Mail International flat rate padded envelope $19.95
huge coats and other heavy garments ship First Class Package International $27.35
Ship to UK and Australia and that vague "everywhere else"
dresses, blouses, most skirts- ship in Priority Mail International flat rate padded envelope $23.95
huge coats and other heavy garments ship First Class Package International $38.95
I also combine shipping, weighing the package to get an exact rate so no one has to pay anything too ridiculous and refund the difference if I over-charge on shipping. If anyone has any cheaper shipping options please do let me know!!
