I ship all items out the same day and no later than the next day depending on the time of sale. If this is an International sale then I will have to check on the actual shipping charges at the Post Office and then notify you and add this amount to your order. This is done only after your approval of the shipping charges. If the amount is ok, then you pay, if you decide it is to much, then the decsion is yours, no hard feelings. Some international charges are very high and this has to be your decision and only your's. I hate to announce but if you are buying from Hawaii or Alaska, I will have to send a second invoice for shipping. They are way more costly than the States. I am very sorry about this but it has to be done.
