Shipping has had another increase in 2014 at USPS and this of course, makes it seem like the shipping is a little large. . If it's an odd shape or abnormal size, they charge a "balloon" charge.
If you purchase 2 or more items from overseas that can fit together, it really pays off to combine your shipping!!
Far less than having two separate items sent.
Thanks for listening and any future or past purchases.
We look forward to helping you,
