It's that time of year again, when online sellers enter a state of panic, worrying that parcels won't arrive in time! I know a really good way of making sure they arrive - it's the technique known as BUY EARLY.
Royal Mail have issued their optimistic dates for last shipping for Christmas arrival, but my experience is that they mean "it'll probably arrive by December 24th" and that is just not good enough. So I'm going to give an extra 2 weeks for international parcels...which means that my last recommended shipping dates will be:
Wednesday 21st November : Asia, Australia, Far East (including Japan) New Zealand
Friday 23rd November : Africa, Caribbean, Central America, Middle East and South America
Monday 26th November : Canada, Eastern Europe and USA
Wednesday 28th November : Western Europe
Thursday 6th December : UK
I will still ship after those dates if you buy - but it's down to you to do the worrying :-)
I will be removing "knit to order" items from my shops within the next few weeks, so please please please buy early to avoid disappointment - or buy a gift card from my Etsy shop so that your gift recipient can choose for themselves.
