    When they are sent out will they be sent as gift to the UK? Might help avoid any additional taxes.

    I don't see why not. Unfortunately I am probably going to have to ask non US addresses to pay for shipping.

    No problem with that, actually I think I mentioned it about 850 posts ago. :-)

    Yup I expect to pay for International shipping, but it would be great to not have to pay import tax...

    In a way we help to fund a project, it is t like we are purchasing from a retailer. It just so happens that the manufacturer now he is up and running, has sent a little something in the post as a thank you.

    Thanks Jaime,
    It's beautiful!
    There's a bit of snow here, so it'll wait to head up a tree for another day or two...
