Annual Closing

Posted by Susannah Everitt on

Currently we are overseas for our two month annual break. Our website is still attended, and you can still order goods through the site. Queries should be made by email to anticus@xtra.co.nz. The shop itself will be open only on Wednesdays and Saturdays during this period, and goods can only be dispatched on those days. Owing to a little unreliability on the part of our answerphone, emails are the best way to contact us. We reopen approx. 10th or 12th of July, 2017.

Shipping rates all updated now.

Shipping rates have now been updated - a few anomalies, but hopefully all will stay static for quite some time. On shipping fees for courier items, you can always contact us if you need a cheaper rate - most items over NZ$225.00 are courier shipped, because this rate carries insurance. Ordinary postal rates will not necessarily be insured (depends on the item) but are substantially lower than the courier fees.

Changes to Shipping Prices.

Posted by Susannah Everitt on

NZ Post has upped its prices for overseas posting, so we are currently having to change our pricing scales. We have 21 pages of stock with 50 items per page, and each item has to be individually changed (this is because we publish the prices on the item description and there is no bulk change option here) - this is about a week's solid work! So far only three pages have been changed, and the current pricing structure won't be altered until all pages have been completed. SO...... the published prices will be out of kilter with the actual postage...
