Royal Mail are again putting up the prices we pay for our parcels.

We are really sorry this is very short notice but RM have only just confirmed the prices with us.

Not only has the price per parcel gone up, but the Fuel Surcharge has risen from 3% to 4%.

Therefore we have reluctantly taken the decision to raise our P+P price to £3.30 on 20th March 2020. We will be keeping the P+P FREE limit at £30 so you can always order more to get around the price rise Smile

Non UK prices will also be rising - the minimum Europe price will rise from £5.45 to £6.02 and the rest of the World price will rise from £6.60 to £7.17. As always, Non UK prices are calculated on the exact weight of a parcel and a Shipping & Packing quote is sent by email after you order.

We hope our loyal customers will understand about this rising cost which is obviously beyond our control as RM are still the best Postal Carrier around.

Royal Mail are putting Airmail prices up for the 4th time in 12 months on 1st January 2021.

We are still working out what that means for our prices and will add the info on here and on our website as soon as we can.

UPDATE - due to problems with digital customs, Brexit and rising Royal Mail costs, we are unable to send to Non-UK addresses at the moment.

Royal Mail have put up their prices again Evil or Very Mad

We have decided to leave our prices the same for now but will be checking how these new prices affect us, especially for very small orders on which we get very little profit.

We are committed to keeping to our core principal of selling small amounts of items, like just one pair of eyes or one nose, but as i am sure you can work out, the profit often does not pay our staff expenses.

We will continue to offer this service and hope that Royal Mail do not keep rising their prices 2 or 3 times a year.
