Normal mail is at buyer's own risk, no refunds are offered for missing unregistered packages.
For packages up to 3kg, if the items can fit in a Smartpac box ($4.70) I will use that option instead of the more expensive Standard Speedpost Parcel (the amount stated in the automatic shipping calcuator). If items cannot fit into a Smartpac box, Speedpost rates will be applicable for packages over 2kg. I also offer expedited options for those who request it. For enquiries, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Self-collection at Serangoon MRT are limited to breakable & bulky items such as vintage cups, kitchenware, appliances, dolls, glassware, bulky lots, etc which has the option stated in respective descriptions. You can collect everything at once if you have at least one valid self-collection item in your purchase.
3-5 working days (Singpost's estimation) after I drop your package off at the post office. I mail out within 24 hours of receiving payment.
International postage prices start from S$6.70 (All Asia except Japan) and S$8.20 (Rest of the world).
Singpost has completely revised their pricing structures for small packets to only 3 weight brackets: 100g, 250g and 500g instead of specific pricing by weight, which means an increase in postage effective 1 Jan 2018. Sorry but this really annoys me. Simply put, you pay 100g worth of postage even if your package is 30g (say one or two pair of earrings). Unfair to everyone except the postal bosses who are seeing their profits increase three-fold. My advise is to buy multiple items per order as it still costs the same up to 100grams.
To calculate shipping (up to 2kg):
Add the items into your cart > View Cart > Click 'Estimate Shipping & Taxes '> Fill in your Country and Postal Code> Click 'Get Quotes'

- Expedited mail option (Speedpost Standard) is available upon request. Rates start at S$39 (Asia), $60 (Australia, New Zealand, East Asia), $70 (North America, UK, Europe), $83 (Rest of the world), please e-mail me at chibilemon (at) gmail.com before purchasing. If your package is over 500g, the expedited mail option is automatically applied in the shipping calculator.
- Packages over 500g will be shipped via expedited mail by default. Some bulky items cannot be mailed under standard airmail even if it is below 500grams due to oversized dimensions. If i cannot fit your order in a bubble envelope without crushing it, then I cannot use standard airmail. Please e-mail me for enquiries before purchasing; if I am unable to ship it via standard airmail and you have paid & checked-out, your order may be cancelled.
