Hey Kris,do you ship internationally at all? And how much would that be? I really love your shop, plus, we don´t have big thrift-stores in Germany like Red-White and Blue or so and buying used wool sweaters at smaller places or on ebay makes them twice as expensive at least. I think, they are still worth it every cent, that´s not the question, just whether I can afford it or not....
Hi Viola, I will ship internationally for actual shipping charges, and with the understanding that I cannot be responsible for the package once it leaves my hands. They don't offer tracking or delivery confirmation on international shipments. To get an idea of how much it will cost, the average sweater weighs about 1 pound... a little less for a cashmere, a little more for a heavy cableknit, but generally 1 lb. per sweater. To get a rough idea, you can go here:http://ircalc.usps.gov/default.aspx?Mode=Intl_Single&CID=10137Kris :)
Thank you- especially for the calculating address and your estimation about the weight of a sweater. So, shipping for up to 4 pounds is about $13-with your fabulous offer for Black Friday (buy 3,get one free)it would still be better than buying used sweaters in Germany- only important thing would be not to exceed 4 pounds- then shipping gets really insanely expensive- about $40, which wouldn´t make sense, only if I would do a wholesale order;-)
Actually, and unfortunately, it would cost much more than $13. I'm not sure if you read it, but the $13 is for a small flat rate box that is 5 3/8" x 8 1/2" X 1 3/4"... roughly the size of a vhs tape. I'd be hard pressed to fit one small sweater in that. For a 3 pound package, it would be $25, and for a 4 pound package it would be $32. I hate that it is so expensive to ship internationally!
Thanks so much for letting me know.I read "small", but couldn´t really figure out how small (being not used to inches at all)- but a VHS tape explains it...well, have to think about it...Anyhow,I really like your shop and posted about it on my new blog, as the idea of repurposing sweaters is not so common here (sure, it depends on whom you ask)....and worth spreading IMO.Kind regards "over the ocean",Viola.
O.K. I´ve just given it some thought...if there would be a way it would "pay" shipping your wonderful wooly sweaters over the ocean. Because to the international shipping also adds German sales tax once you pick your parcel up at the postal customs office...So, what do you think Kris (just talking and thinking BIG), how many sweaters would fit into a "Priority Mail Large Flat-Rate Box: 12" x 12" x 5 1/2". Maximum weight 20 pounds"? If this discussion is too private/off topic for the blog, feel free to contact me at violaho (at) gmx.net- I just couldn´t find another way to contact you apart from blog or woolsoaker-group...Wishing you all a great First of Advent Weekend,Viola.
