As we list a very large amount of different items, each of which must be weighed including its packaging, we currently are unable to give pre-determined postage information while maintaining efficiency. It is our policy to have all buyers pay full postage and handling, unless the postage price is negotiated by us.
We assure you that we do not make a profit out of the postage costs that we charge. We charge what Australia Post charges us, plus about $2.50-$3.00 for packaging and handling (less for letters, more for fragile and difficult parcels)
However, if you contact us, we'll be happy to give you an accurate postage quote as soon as we can. We ask that unless you have received a postage quote, please do not estimate shipping and handling costs by yourself.
Please allow 1-2 weeks domestically, and 2-3 weeks Internationally. We no longer send parcels via Sea Mail.
Also please note that items may be slower than usual owing to the Christmas rush where the postal service faces delays worldwide.
Owing to a surge of un-insured items lost in the mail, from now on, ALL items will need to be sent with tracking and insurance. This costs AN ADDITIONAL $2.95 for Australian buyers and AN ADDITIONAL $8.75 for Overseas buyers for items under $100 in value (with an additional $2.30 for each hundred above).
We apologize for the inconvenience, but too many things have been lost in the mail and we cannot afford for it to continue.
If you are wondering where an item is, please contact me and I will contact Australia Post where your item is. As all items will be sent insured, we can assure you that you will be sent a refund if an item becomes lost in the mail after inquiries have been completed.
