I wanted to remind everyone that my miniatures will be up for sale today in my Etsy shop at 4pm EST. Part of the reason why I decided to paint these little guys is because I’ve been getting some emails from disgruntled non North Americans wanting to purchase my original paintings but can’t because the shipping costs are so prohibitive. So, I figured painting some tiny paintings might do the trick. That was until I brought them to the post office to be weighed. They cost almost as much to ship them overseas as they do to buy one. The issue is the ‘tracking service’- not so much the size. Because they are originals and cannot be replaced if lost at sea, I will only ship them out with tracking- and tracking is pretty affordable within Canada and the USA but unfortunately it gets expensive beyond North America. So I wanted to get the ‘shipping sticker shock’ out of the way before I list these and hopefully curtail the angry emails.
