Shipping and EU Shipping

I am based in the UK. There is a choice of first or second class as standard at checkout with an option to upgrade for an extra charge. I currently post out on Monday and Friday each week. Anything ordered after 2pm on Friday will be posted out on Monday. If you need your item posted on another day just let me know and it can be arranged.

Outside the UK the option of standard international is an untracked method of airmail and depending on the country where you live, the current customs delays, postal delays etc your order can take anything up to 8 weeks to arrive - although most arrive earlier than this.

My last posting dates for Christmas are around the end of November/beginning of December to limit the possibility of delayed or lost parcels. 

UK Standard 2nd class - £1.75 for large letter, £4.50 for a small parcel  Upgrades are available

Outside UK - Standard airmail - £5.00 for a large letter, £20 for a small parcel - Upgrades are available 

 

Shipping to the Eu From 1 July 2021 

Major changes with regards to the EU and Value Added Tax (VAT) are coming to businesses selling goods to customers located in the EU. The changes will take effect on 1 July 2021. 

  • All goods sold or sent from a business in the UK and delivered to a customer in an EU country will be liable for VAT
  • The VAT amount applicable is subject to the local rate of VAT of the customer's delivery country.
  • Goods to a value of up to €150   -   VAT,  formal clearance and customs clearance fee
  • Goods over €150   -  VAT, customs duties, formal clearance and customs clearance fee

I don't have a lot of orders to Europe and the additional paperwork at this point in time outweighs the orders I receive.  Etsy as on online marketplace automatically collects the VAT from you the buyer and sends it to the local tax authorities but I don't have my full inventory on there. 

So if you are based in the EU message me (email/DM/messenger etc) your order. Please bear in mind that the prices on the website do not include VAT. 

I will then set up a custom listing on Etsy in order for you to pay. If the total price (goods +postage + VAT is acceptable, checkout and your goods will be sent to you) If after considering all the charges the total price is unacceptable then contact me to cancel the order. 

At this point in time I don't see an easier way of doing things but I'm always open to suggestions.
