A Note for German Customers

Over the last few months, a number of German customers (of South Pacific Berets), complained about missing shipments. 
Bad news. Postal deliveries from NZ to Germany are meant to take no more than a week or so, but the good news is: the parcels do turn up!

The culprits are the (German) Customs! Whether it is to check on terrorism devices, lost revenue from citizens buying from overseas or just sheer envy because their own berets are not exactly SPB-quality, I don't know. The outcome is always a re-sealed envelope delivered with a few weeks delay and no import duties charged (my berets are obviously too cheap to qualify for extra import duties).
Please keep this in mind when ordering from Germany.
