Insurance on International sales is optional and the buyer's responsibility.

The shipping cost of each item is listed individually, however, I am happy to combine items on an order to give a better shipping rate.  Any excess shipping cost will be refunded.   Please use the "contact us" form if you have any shipping questions.
