Shipping from France

I use recycled cardboard packaging ( but in perfect condition) and new bubble wrap, for fragile items I line the box with polystyrene.

I ship items using "la Poste"s cheapest international postal rates, but this does not include tracking or insurance ( to keep the cost down as postage in France is reasonably expensive)

I only charge 1 $ over the French postal cost, this is to cover materials and time.

Tracking and insurance is an optional extra costing 3.80$ available during checkout.

International postal delivery can take from 5 days to 3 weeks, at certain times of the year maybe longer ( ie Christmas period and French summer holidays)

I cannot be held responsible for items not arriving for a deadline.

I am not responsible for extra taxes or duty upheld in certain countries.

    Sehr sehr schöner Goldfaden, schneller Versand!

    I love this shop, everything is lovely and shipped quickly

    Fil vraiment trop fin par rapport à ce que j'attendais et pas de bobine, la photo m'a induite en erreur, meme si je reconnais que ce n'est pas facile à faire, l'envoi s'est fait attendre.

    Perfekt! Sehr schönes Produkt, nette Kommunikation mit der Verkäuferin. Danke

    Great seller, would buy from them again.
