A Note re postage

Regular visitors to my listings will know that I always try to offer affordable postage and am happy to combine additional items to bring the cost down. Earlier this year UK postal costs rose significantly and until now I have been able to absorb them. This is no longer the case so sadly I have had to raise my postage costs.

I am now using Royal Mail’s ‘Printed papers’ service which is still the cheapest way to send  catalogues and I am still happy to combine postage wherever possible ( allowing for the postal service weight bands and restrictions)  to reduce the cost to you.

 I weigh each item before it is listed and only charge the actual amount of postage, there is nothing added on for my time, envelopes, travel to the post office etc.

I hope you will understand the need for this rise in costs and please be assured that I continue to strive to offer you the best cus
