After mucho hours researching and re-aligning yesterday my shop Whyte is offering international shipping on almost all my treasures. I actually have a wonderful Danish doll-maker and cyber friend, Dorthe to thank for lighting the fire to take the plunge in my own shop. She patiently waited while I figured out the process to ship her some of my treasures several weeks ago. I only goofed up the listing 1000 times before I got it right, but in the end it was an easy process and the items arrived in Denmark just fine in about a week.
It's incredibly surprising but almost all international shipping is the same cost USPS first class international rate. There are separate rates for Canada and Mexico. And there are 3rd party insurers out there who will insure international first class, which USPS does not, at this time. Getting into Priority or Express does get very pricey, so stuck with the least expensive way to ship. However, if I was shipping valuable and/or expensive items, one would surely want to consider those options.
