42 Things To Always Remember:

1. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

    Question: So i was looking at the clothes you have for sale and I was wondering what you would charge for shipping to Australia?

  12. mandy, it would depend on how much you bought. but normally i just box it up, take it to the post office and have it weighed and charge accordingly :) i've been super ripped off by international shipping the past couple weeks. i'd just estimate, but be generous, and i'd end up charging $5 and it'd cost $10+ and i'd only make $3-5 on a sale hha

  13. I'll have a look now :) Add them up and get back to you.
