New Lower Shipping!

I've updated the shipping charges in my webstore, and that's good news for customers!

Previously my method of figuring shipping was dictated by eBay, with their per-item charge. It's always been a problem because I sell some items that are very light and some that are much heavier, so setting a standard per-item shipping charge was difficult. It could also get expensive quickly for customers buying multiple items, even though I capped it at a certain point.

But now I'm free to use the much more versatile methods offered by my website's shopping cart. I've changed it over to a flat shipping charge based on the value of the order; an hour or so of weighing various combinations of items has confirmed these values are in line with the average weights and, thus, actual shipping costs of such orders. (Because I am just that anal detail-oriented, which is why I now know that a customs form weighs exactly .01 of an ounce.)

What all this means is, lower shipping costs for you! An order that might have cost $3.15 before will now be only $2.50, and the savings get bigger as the order gets larger. International buyers will see big savings, too!

Griffins, traditionally, are Guardians. Often carved at temple doors in ancient times, they were said to guard the way to Wisdom. I, on the other hand, seem to be the Guardian primarily of odd bits of string, pinecones, scraps of paper, mismatched socks, old calendars, homeless imps and gnomes, pencils with no erasers, jokes nobody gets, forgotten gods, keys with no locks, and other people’s lighters. If any of these things might be of use to you, let me know.
