I am happy to combine items when possible. Shipping for this item is for the continental US. International buyers please note- I do not mark forms as gift. I do not end sales early. I prefer but do not insist upon shipping Priority Mail for international sales as it carries insurance and can be tracked. Customs fees are the buyers responsibility. I do not charge handling fees.A word about my sales- I do not use reserves- for me, it is unfair to dangle a carrot in front of someone and then go "oopsie" just foolin'.I list at all hours to accommodate people in all time zones. If you are interested in an item and will be away from the computer, you might want to just pop in that offer and set your limit. (ie: life gets busy!)For my repeat overseas customers, I will hold onto your item for up to a month as you fill a box with other items you offer on. Then ship the filled box. This saves you on postage which will be affixed on the full box, not individual items. I just ask that you pay for each item as you win it, so as to not back me up. Just keep in mind you will still have to pay customs fees on each item. Please remember almost all of the garments I sell are 120 years old to 40 years old. They were made for one individual long ago before the Big Mac was invented and not all bodies are the same. While I strive to be totally accurate in listing any imperfections, occasionally a small thing is missed. About a third of my customers are repeat customers, so they already know a great deal in a unique antique item. I hope you will too!
