I weigh all purchased items together to give you the best shipping price. I AM NO LONGER CHARGING THE .30 CENTS EXTRA FOR BROWN ENVELOPES ETC. AS I LISTEN TO MY CUSTOMERS AND SEE THAT YOU DIDN'T LIKE THIS. IF IT IS STILL ON AN AUCTION YOU BID ON I WILL SUBTRACT IT ON THE INVOICE. Please be aware that I use the shipping calculator but if the envelope is under 3/4 inches thick it is taken to the post office to see if it will go out first class mail and the extra is refunded to you. I don't now or never tried to line my pockets with extra shipping. We accept pay pal and payment at pick up. I try to ship withing 3 days, so please before you blame me for slow shipping look at the date it was shipped on the label. This way you can tell if it is me or the post office.
