It is with great sadness we have discontinued shipping to Australia due to the Australian government shifting their burden of tax collection and remission to foreign sellers. Given there is no reciprocal agreement between the USA and Australia for excise tax collection, we are declining to register with Australia and start burdensome international tax collection on their behalf. Please note, this also includes the use of package forwarders as the tax collection burden is still the seller's responsibility. We're unhappy, you're unhappy, but unless the situation changes, this is where we are. Jenny

Just wanted to say "Thank You" your customer service ROCKS IT!. I ordered a few things, and they were delivered two days later they shipped the day I placed my order. Then today I get a notification that you gave me a credit for postage. WOW, really? That never happens. Thank you for such integrity and excellent customer service.

Regards,
