I have to say also, that the girl I bought the spacers off was an absolute credit to Etsy. She is a fairly new seller, only a few feedback and like lots of sellers, had only listed that she would ship to the US for her listings. I emailed her to ask if she would ship to the UK, and how much it would be if so. She replied right back that she had never sent anything overseas before, but had checked online with the post office and that it would be $10 shipping. I agreed to this and paid for my bangles. Later that day, I got a refund off the seller of $6. She had been to the post office and it had only cost her $3.25 for the shipping and 75c for the jiffy bag, so she refunded the extra. How nice is that? I was very impressed.
So many people on Etsy completely overcharge for shipping, and its something that really annoys me. I have been buying stuff from the States for years - so I know what things cost to send and when I email a seller to ask about shipping a bangle and they quote me $25 for standard (non tracked) shipping, they then wonder why I say no thanks!
If people don't want to ship overseas, thats completely fair enough, but if you do - then have the decency to actually find out what it costs!! ahhhhh rant over :)
