I will aim to pack each item as small as possible to keep costs down, however it's down to the post office regulations.
I do not make any extra charge for packaging costs. Your item will arrive in a biodegradable mail bag, wrapped in recycled tissue paper. Labels are printed on recycled paper also. Please re use and recycle. :) Please bear in mind I am only charging the actual cost of posting. It's frustrating for me that Royal Mail have increased their prices to these levels, but please don't mark me badly in my ratings, it's their greed NOT mine!!

In love and light and hopes of fairer world, Aurelia x x
