Answers to common questionsHow does shipping work?
I will use a variety of shipping methods to keep costs down for you. Please note that in the event a courier is used, they may be provided with authority to leave your parcel if nobody is home, so you should ensure an address where you are comfortable for the courier to leave your parcel in the event you are not present. Orders large in value may be required to be signed for. A work postal address may be better suited for your delivery. You will always be provided with tracking so you can track your delivery.

I live in Brisbane, can I pick up my order instead of having it shipped?
Yes, you can do this! To place an order this way, please select local pick up (free) on check out. I am in Narangba, on the north side of Brisbane, and pick up is available at varied times/days each week as organised on an individual basis. Please note, I prefer that you ask me about this prior to placing your order so we can arrange a time and day that suits us both.
