Hey folks!

Sadly 2018 was the last year that we participated in the Taxidermy Secret Santa.
It has various reasons but the declining community and new shipping prices are the main reasons.
We always had so much fun and got so lovely things from you :heart:

Unfortunately the time of shipping something at low cost is over. Since the 1st January of 2019 sending anything within the EU will at least cost 9€. Outside the EU it is 16€.
And this is the basic cost. Today I sent a seriously small skull for 9€ to the Netherlands. The whole package had 200g of weight.

It is absolutely ridiculous.
You can still sent letters and such for the low cost but nothing which is not a document.
:(
I know it has been like this for many people in Australia and America already but it is new to us.

Usually we sent quite a few packages for Secret Santa. But now even sending a feather and a piece of chocolate is 9€ for shipping at least! And getting this stuff to the US is 16€!
But that's nothing I or we can afford in the future anymore.
Sorry :(

So please be aware that buying from us will be more expensive now due to shipping fees.

Best,
Lara

I had no idea this had come in....I wonder if it's anything to do with the Brits voting to leave the EU? (Brexit)?
I can't find anything in the news about it.
I can see why it's made it prohibitive to send small things. Stupid prices for such light parcels!

I fear it is just the post service trying to compensate rivalry :(

I noticed an increase in price this year too but not as much as you ;w; You'd think with the increased demand for posting packages due to Amazon and online purchases the price would go down due to the economy of scale :/

I fear they try to add prices to stand rivalry from Asia and such.
Besides people send as much as never before but still the post service increases prices and decreases service.. :(

I agree, shipping has been brutal!! It takes the fun out of the SS for sure.
On another note, do you guys have any skulls for sale right now? Obviously I would pay the shipping as well.

thanks!

Same here, prices increased a lot. Now it's 12,30 € for a -500gr package within EU...

9€ for everything under 500g, without tracking.
15€ if you want tracking :( Even if you just send a quail egg.
