Hi Elise,
Please email me on my gateway address then I can organise book payments directly rather than through Ebay to minimise costs for you. All best, Heather

I'd very much like to get hold of both Embroidered with White and White Embroidered Costume Accessories, to be sent to New Zealand. Are they still available?
