A lovely lady in Australia bought a painting from my Etsy store. So I pack it up the usual way and take it to the P.O. and the way I had it packed would have cost $35.00. So I brought it home and repacked. On my way back to the P.O. I decided to stop at the UPS store and see what their fee might be. After measuring and weighing, he said $169.64 !! $169.64.I started laughing and he did too. This pkg. was ><>
I went on to the P.O. and mailed it for $15.00. Just thought you might enjoy that scenario.
Now I'm off to Etsy to list a painting or two.
