Fairies for adoption

Today i took time to sort out a little shop on Etsy, and this little strawberry fairy is for sale. It took me longer than i thought, but it is all done now ! I had thought about it for a while, but the problem we have here in France is the shipping cost.
I went to the post office several times to ask about pricing of shiping they never have a clear answer.The national post service offers no great service i am afraid, and the cost are very high ! The smallest parcel to send in France can't cost under 5.10 euros, and i am receiving sometimes fabrics from USA and i just pay 4$ for shipping ! As for international shipping they have no clear readable price policy...In 2008 our national post office will have to share the market with private companies, i hope it will force them to review their service !

Yippeee! I am so glad that you opened a shop on etsy! As soon as I sell something else I will be buying one of your fairies! Shipping stinks but it is the same here- I just mailed my Louis bear to California (from here- Florida) and it was 32 dollars for insurance and 2 day- I only charged her 10 dollars shipping- :( it's difficult to figure out! Congratulations on your shop though! I am so very proud of you! I would love to have one with the liberty fabrics- like those small marie antoinette looking ones that you made...or maybe they ad strawberries...Maybe I could send you some of the gnome fabric that I have and you could use that? I will email you! Kim
