Postage and packing for UK residents is a set fixed rate of £4.95 (unless your order is over £150, which qualifies you for FREE shipping). We will always use the most appropriate service to get your parcels delivered to you as safely as we can. 
This does mean your orders may arrive through different couriers and when it is provided we will send you a tracking ID. 
For European customers, the postage and packing fee is based on the size of your order and once again will be sent via the  most appropriate postal service at the time. 

Drop shipping is a supply chain management method in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock but instead transfers its customer's orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer, another retailer, or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer.

How do I know if my order is drop ship? Where you see another manufactures, suppliers or designers name displayed above the product titles, other than 'Natasha Makes' your order will be drop ship and delivered directly by another manufacturer, retailer, or wholesaler. 

A Drop shipped item can take up to 3 - 5 days on top of the estimated delivery time on all products.
