*** IMPORTANT BUYER INFO ***
1. I now only send overseas with tracking / insurance as standard. This adds around £5.50 to each order. This is already included in the figure you see on screen. However it's worth the extra for the peace of mind. (I lost two packages last year which weren't tracked / insured. It was very annoying indeed. Lesson learned.)
2. I now only accept paypal as method of payment for non U.K. buyers. U.K. buyers can still pay by personal cheque if preferred.
3. I no longer ship to China.
