I am currently based in France. I currently send items with the French postal service, La Poste. Parcels come with a tracking number, which I will add to your shipping notification and can be tracked on I am currently unable to offer cheaper services, and I can not alter the shipping price, except for overcharges.
I cannot send items out on weekends or Mondays, because France. I live in a small village where the post office opens for 3 hours a day, and has days off without warning, so occasionally I might be a day late in sending things off; I'll let you know if this is the case though!

Disapointed about this bag. The leather and the canvas are not in a good condition. There are not as good as pictures. Vintage doesnt mean not in a good condition. Price should be different if its in a good condition ans if its not. I found the price correct if the condition was good as we can see on the pictures. But its not in a good condition, so its truly too expensive.
