bensmom - thanks for sorting out the shipping issue! I will be ordering soon, once I recover from just having purchased a new helmet and boots from dover. blegh.
On international shipping, maybe compare items of a similar size on Etsy and see what they charge? I've ordered small-ish (a pillow cover and kindle paperweight case) items from Europe and the charge has been around $8 for shipping. I was surprised at how cheap it was!
