Christmas Delivery and Shipping Date Deadlines 2012

Christmas Delivery

Christmas Postal Deadlines 2012.

Christmas delivery? Beat the Christmas rush and the elbow digs in the post office and make sure you get your Xmas parcels signed, sealed and delivered in time for Christmas day.  🙂 .

For those of you with family or friends on further shores then keep in mind that international delivery in time for Christmas has a tighter schedule! (The reindeer have to travel further, you see).

Make sure everyone has a very merry Christmas, and get your presents and cards off in time.

If you want to purchase an item from our Etsy shop, don’t forget to allow us enough time to mail it to you!
