The postage costs on this website are calculated by weight and include packaging, third party insurance, and a small addition to help cover paypal fees. Unfortuniately, USPS set their prices, and I have no control over them.
Free shipping on US orders of $60+ applies only to handmade items. This is because most of the non-handmade items are a lot bigger and heavier, and they are items I originally bought for my personal use and paid retail prices for that I am selling on to make more living space for myself.
Postage costs, especially to international destinations, can be a real shocker. They may also include some sort of customs charges and/or import fees set by the government of your country of residence payable when the order arrives there. I have no control over any of this. If in doubt, please check wth your country of residence for information about this before ordering.
A USPS plugin is being used to calculate the postage, and it may not always be accurate. Any overpayment of what it costs me will be refunded.
Feel free to contact me for an exact no-obligation quote of total shipping costs before ordering.
