postal charges and an offer

postage has gone up *so* much in britain recently - seriously, to send a parcel under 100g to the US or Canada has increased from £2.07 to £3.70 !! local parcels have gone from £1.58 to £2.70.....it's not good. i think it's sad that local and international postage now costs me about the same; it's surely not good for the economy. but there you go - i'm not the one setting the prices here. 
i've uploaded a whole bunch of stuff into my two jewellery shops and as a little thank you to all my customers and readers, i'm offer free shipping in both of my shops for the next week! in etsy, use coupon code FREEPOSTJUNE, and in folksy (which doesn't yet have a coupon code system enabled - soon please folksy!) i will refund you the postal charge via paypal.

Beautiful bracelets Rebecca! Totallu hacked off with the psotage hikes too and on top of that they have the cheek to get it wrong as well! First parcel I posted after the increase was send Airmail letter and never got there. It should have gone Small Packet. Then some cards that i sent were charged as a small packet instead of large letter! Bah!

The same has happened here in Australia all our small package prices have gone up, postage sometimes costs more than the product you are sending.
