I apologise for the recent hike in my shipping costs but in an astonishing move Royal Mail have almost doubled their prices for some parcel categories.
PayPal is nice but I am more than happy to accept bank cheques, international money orders & bank to bank wire payments in GB Pounds. For larger purchases I will accept personal cheques in US Dollars but there will be a small charge to cover bank fees, please contact me for details.
