Last minute Christmas deliveries

Elizabethan etched and gilded teardrop earrings.Well it’s been a very busy festive season for my handmade jewellery shops!

But there are still a few days to go, so here are some delivery details for those last minute purchases.

If you are in Australia then you still have a few more days for pre-Christmas deliveries.

However, I strongly suggest you use the Express Post delivery option when you checkout from here on in.

My suggested cut off for Christmas deliveries by Express Post in Australia is midday on either 21 or 22 December, depending on where you are.

22 December should be okay if your delivery address is within the ‘guaranteed next business day delivery network’ from postcode 5241 – learn more. If you are not in the guaranteed area, Express Post items still arrive the next day more often than not, but it’s best to allow an extra day in case.

If you need items delivered outside of Australia for Christmas, you’re pretty much out of luck at this point – there is only the smallest of chances they will arrive in time.

For orders which don’t necessarily need to arrive prior to Christmas, I will be posting them out as normal. However, be aware that there are a number of public holidays at this time of year in Australia which may slow down post-Christmas deliveries.

Season’s greetings!

If I don’t get a chance to post here before the big day, I wish all of you a very happy festive season!

And a big thanks to everyone who has supported an indie business this year.
