I agreed to mailing my secret santa pkg out of country, and have been madly collecting lots of cool little things to go in it. My last purchases today were totally beautiful batik FG's, and chocolate. So, anyway, thought if I waited about another week sending priority mail would be o.k. to reach her in time. I had already weighed my firmie so while I was at PO today, just thought to check on postage fees and transport time. A four (4) lb firmie is $48.00 !!!!!! YIKES !!!!! . The PO clerk told me to get the firmie just under 4 lbs including the box, send it 1st class and it drops to $22 with delivery in 4-5 working days. Just posting this as a heads up for other members to consider first class and priority.
