European orders

My dear customers in the European Union are greatly valued and I appreciate all your past and future business.

Sadly, the UK is no longer a member of the EU and doing business is not so easy, proving particularly difficult for small business.

I am, of course still happy to send orders to the EU. Royal Mail prices have increased, but since most orders are relatively low value, it seems easy enough to post items.

However, if your delivery address is in an EU country please be aware that you may be asked to pay additional duty or fees before you can receive your goods. Most seem to be in region of €13 to €20 in custom charges.

It is very difficult to find information about what will happen when small parcels are sent from the UK to the EU, this page will be updated as the situation becomes clearer.
