Gorgeous designs, gorgeous colours and alot cheaper to order from the USA than within the UK.
But customs and Excise, in their wisdom, have slapped a paltry £15 limit on the amount of goods I'm allowed to ship in before being clobbered by customs duty. Not to mention the Royal Mail handling fee.
That's £15 per order, so if I get a job lot of material sent in one package, I'll be stung.
However, if I make more than one small order, that's fine - nothing to pay.
And the postage from the US is - bizarrely - cheaper than a supplier I use in the UK!
Customs and Excise do not make things easy!
