***If you are sending a parcel to an island, such as the Portuguese, Spanish, French, Greek, Italian or Caribbean Islands, play it safe and allow an extra couple of weeks or even months. Remote locations in Africa, India, China and the Middle East may also take a little longer. 

Weather, Customs and other factors (such as the actual pandemic) may delay your order. Please be patient during these hard times. 

Some countries won't update the tracking number when they arrive at customs and unfortunately this is beyond our control, so please have this in mind when ordering.
 

DO I HAVE TO PAY DUTIES AND CUSTOM TAXES?

While we will happily ship worldwide, please be aware that international orders may be subject to customs or import duties once the order reaches its destination country. We do not cover the cost of import duties and taxes, so you will be responsible for these. As import duties and taxes vary from country to country, we recommend you contact your local customs office for more information before placing your order. All countries outside EU may be subjected to custom taxes and duties.
THAT SAID, it's very, very (VERY) veryyyy, rare for our parcels to get stuck at customs because they are quite tiny and go right through. 😉
(But of course it can happen)
 

BREXIT

Please read above. ❤️

DO I HAVE TO SIGN FOR MY ORDER?

YES.
