We have re-enabled shipping options to Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

All packages to destinations outside the U.S. will ship using a service called Global Post. This is a service where I send packages to a collection point in the US, then they are bundled and shipped to other countries by Global Post for customs clearance. Once customs are cleared, the local post office delivers your package.

I do not collect any taxes (VAT) or customs duties owed on international shipments. You may need to pay these before your package will be delivered.
