If you live outside the USA, you might not be aware that the US Postal Service is putting its prices up on January 27th and while the increases for domestic mail are not much, prices for shipping outside the US are going up considerably.
For example, right now a 5oz package from the US to Australia is $6.12 but after January 27th that same package is going to cost $12.75
So, if you live outside the US and you’ve had your eye on a pattern sold by a US seller, now is the time to get your order in before shipping charges shoot up.
It’s also a good time to start hunting down pattern sellers close to home. If you’re in Australia, All the Precious Things and Bessie and Maive are two of my favorites. You can find vintage patterns on etsy located in Australia with this link.
If there’s a pattern seller you love outside the US, let us know in the comments.
There is absolutely no reason this post is filled with pictures from a book of 1956 ski fashions except that they are completely awesome.
