Oh well...sorry to moan on here but i'm off work after having an op on my shoulder, i've been on the net most of the day and i've been searching for moulds.
I did mention the mould on here before as I can't get it in the UK...the company have now e mailed me back and told me how to get the internatonal postage costs. I've looked and the postage is gonna cost $30.50 for a $10 mould
So I will have to wait till my friend visits the US in May.
Why can't I get it here
I hate having to order things off the internet! I pay as much for shipping as I do for the things I'm buying. Fondant is VERY heavy to ship!! Unfortunately, I can't get Satin Ice anywhere in town.
Now, I usually buy light weight objects like cutters with my order that won't add to the total shipping weight so I get the most out of the shipping cost. Drives me crazy, though.
i share ur pain! im away up north im going to bite the bullet and order some spinning leaf molds, their postage isnt extortionate (well, considering its light plastic, maybe it is, but i want the molds so bad!).
but i see so much stuff on us sites that i want - things that seam pretty basic like impression mats - that are so hard to find here!
i actually have a friend going out in may too.... mmm!
My problem is that my friend lives in Malta, she's going in May so will post it to me from Malta when she gets home
I too am so mad about shipping costs. I was going to order a gumpaste mold, probably weighed less than an ounce, 2" thing, they wanted to charge me $8.00 for shipping. I couldn't believe it, they could have put it in a padded envelope or even a postage envelope, probably cost them a dollar. I wrote them and they defended their prices, so I told them that they lost a sale.
So postage is expensive within the US as well, you would think these companys make enough money, I understand it wont be cost price, i expect to pay a little bit more but the amount they add on is ridiculous.
I have some good shops within driving distance from me but I can't always get what i want....It's not that I need the mould, I just want it
I noticed that shipping shot up when the price of gasoline went up so much in the U.S., which I understand. But now that gas is down again, they've left the shipping at the same price. Dirty dogs...!
It is also very expensive to have anything from the US shipped to me here in Canada so I feel your pain!!I think everywhere is feeling the global economic crunch in everything from food prices,postal,gasoline prices,housing etc...Hopefully in the next few months or even year things may settle down and even out a bit more!
