This is what the lovely postman didn't bring me this morning!  This is what I had to go to the sorting office to collect...and then I had to pay over £11.00 for the honour.  I made the mistake of placing an order with lovely ZandS Fabrics in Denver that was over £18.00, so, not only did I have to pay £3.46 tax, which I accept, it was my mistake after all, but, on top of that I had to pay a staggering £8.00 "Royal Mail International Handling Fee".  This "fee" apparently just covers the costs of Royal Mail collecting the tax and passing it to the customs office, or some such explanation.  It will teach me to be more careful (and the lovely fabric still works out at a good price, just not as good as it could have been) and I thought I'd post my woeful tale as a warning to others.  Right, moan over, better get that gold fabric ironed and ready for my Christmas quilt project.

  1. I'm sorry you got caught by the dreaded customs man! I do hate that £8 charge, particularly when it used to be only £4! Great fabric though! And are they New York Beauty blocks I spy? lol
