I thought it was brilliant for sariroo to send me mine from an Etsy shop so there wasn't international shipping involved! Plus the whole fact that I love it and wear it nearly every day....
I think if everything is sent before Christmas (despite the fact my winter holiday was well over by Christmas!) international packages taking longer/getting in later depending on what happens seems an acceptable compromise so everyone can be involved who wants.
The pews never miss a sermon but that doesn't get them one step closer to Heaven.
But at least the pews never attend yoga!
