GENERAL INSTRUCTION for the Etsy Check-Out Process :
Shipping is through Australia Post unless otherwise arranged, and approximate costs will be included on an item listing, but please convo me for exact shipping costs, particularly for international buyers, as duties and taxes can be tricky to calculate!
(international buyers are responsible for all duties, fees & taxes charged by their country)
Arrival times may vary according to item/weight and shipping method used, as we try to keep the cost of shipping as low as possible. We do our very best to get packages out as soon as we can (usually within 2 working days) however please see our shop announcement for current shipping times and please remember that customs can delay shipment of packages, and we have no control over this - we would just have to curse the customs office together!

**You will receive an Etsy 'convo' when your order has shipped.
