International buyers have every right to expect that the items they have purchased will be well packaged and that the items themselves will be of high quality craftsmanship; this seller does take responsibility for shipping items correctly and international buyers are have the same promise of satisfaction as domestic buyers.

On a personal note, I do not like having things in my life that I can not take full and complete responsibility for. The problem of responsible international shipping has bothered me for many years. I do no like saying, “if your package gets lost, that’s your problem.” Please understand that I have lost *hundreds of dollars* to international shipping problems; be they lost packages or buyer scams. In the modern world, American craftsmen need the international market; and so perhaps it is better to have this policy than to have no policy. I will continue looking for more respectful, honest methods of shipping. I would understand fully if this policy deterred international buyers from making purchases but at least there is an option. I am a decent person; every effort will be make to get your package to you safely.
