Your order will be dealt with as fast as possible but please remember Parafinalia is a one man band I do NOT have the same capabilities as Amazon
The following Emails will inform of due process 
Pending:- This means the order is acknowledged by the site as received, this is an automatic mail, it does not mean I am physically present in the shop, Please note opening Times
Packed awaiting Transit:- As it suggests, the order is packed but because I do not live next door to the Post Office and the shop is open until 5 pm the order is still with parafinalia.
Dispatched This means that the order has been dropped off at the Post Office or Courier, shipping times should be calculated from this Email, not from the date the order was placed.
My cut off time is 2 pm Tuesday to Friday 
orders placed after 2 pm on Friday will be dealt with on the next working day, this could be the following Tuesday if your order is placed after 2 pm on Friday (see my opening Times)
There is no point Emailing Parafinalia during closed hours, Emails are not forwarded
and I am not at the shop to take any requested action.
 
The actual weight without packaging of each item is shown on the description page.
The Method of shipping is chosen by You the customer.
The Shopping cart can be added to at any time right up to the payment Page, this means that the Shipping cost cannot be shown until the Post Code or Country and the actual weight of the order is known 
The weight of packing can vary greatly depending on size and breakage potential Parafinalia has NOT added packaging weight to the items, this would result in gross overcharge for multiple orders.
Second Class small package has a weight limit of 1.75 Kg to allow for Packing
All other services have had the shipping price rounded up to the nearest £ or 50p
