We live in the country and are often without power, thus I am without a computer and a printer. (We are the end of the line for electricity on this road so are the last to be restored). If you do not receive a shipping notice within 3 days after a transaction, please be patient - I will contact you as soon as power is restored.
In addition, TN is prone to some very nasty ice storms. As mentioned, we live in the country, where the roads are long, winding, and frequently never receive sunlight. There are no salt trucks that come out here. My mailbox is about a quarter mile down a steep hill and after an ice storm, I can't navigate the hill on foot or by truck. In serious cases, as in the winter of 2017-2018, there was no mail delivered or picked up for a few days. If the computer is working, I will let you know if there is a weather-related delay in shipping.
INTERNATIONAL FRIENDS, PLEASE NOTE:
As I am in the US, I am NOT registered for VAT, and so this tax is not included in my prices. Import duties, taxes/VAT/GST and any other country's import fees or charges ARE NOT INCLUDED in our item price or shipping cost. These charges, if applicable, are the buyer's responsibility.
This policy hereby supersedes any other verbiage on all kinseysue listings. 6/8/16
I ship sewing patterns first class international via the US postal service. Their shipping costs for overseas mail is quite high - I have NO CONTROL over the post office.
