Well, in case you missed it, the US Postal Service (which we use to ship our orders) has raised it's rates again. So, their rate increase requires us to also increase our shipping rates. The new standard flat rate shipping on any PinkBird Creations item is now $6.00 (up from $5.00). If you'd like to learn more about our shipping policies click here.
This is it in a nutshell:
$6.00 - US & Canada
$7.00 - Austria, UK, Germany, France, Ireland, Belgium, Holland/Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Portugal, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia & New Zealand
Orders $5.00 and under shipping to the US have the option of using USPS First Class Mail for $2.50.
Anyway, I apologize for the inconvenience, we aren't making money off of our shipping, we charge enough to cover packaging materials, postage, and tracking.
In other, unrelated news, today is Laurel, Maryland's annual Main Street Festival, they close the street and describe it like so: " 3,300 feet of Fun, Food, Arts & Crafts and Entertainment! Parade Starts at 9 Sharp!" Since we only moved here last July, and live on Main Street we will be in attendance, this will be out first Main Street Festival, so we can only imagine what kind of hoop-la this will be! Perhaps next year (if we're still living in the area, though I'm not holding my breath) PinkBird can have a booth there!
Ok, well, have a great weekend,
Best wishes, jellyfishes!
