We’re big fans of Potters Crouch Candles here at V&L so when I noticed that our buddy Sarah Lou was having a wicked awesome sale, I knew I had to stock up.
Sarah Lou Ltd. is based in the UK and I’m based in Ireland which can mean expensive shipping costs for both parties, so having recently just signed up to AddressPal with An Post (the Irish postal system) I decided to try that out. Basically what it is is, if you live in Ireland and want to purchase from the UK they give you a UK address to use, your shopping gets delivered there and then brought to Ireland and you collect it at your local post office. It costs €3.50 per package, which you pay upon collection, and really that’s nothing compared to regular post or couriers.
So I gave it a go. Sarah Lou sent me a tracking number for the courier she uses and it showed that my package arrived at the UK address I was given this past Friday, then on Tuesday morning I got a text saying my package was ready for collection at my local post office. I was so shocked! It only took three working days!
So if you’re in Ireland and love online shopping than I can’t recommend this service enough, and no this post is not sponsored. I just want everyone to have nice things and not get screwed over on shipping expenses. I’m so happy I’ll be able to buy so many nice things from Sarah Lou all the time now. 🙂
So what did I buy?
