If you buy multiple items, I will combine shipping and give you the cheapest rate possible. I charge whatever it costs me to ship an item, so please don't complain about costs with no markup (unless you're complaining to USPS)--if a rate looks high, ask me about it and I'll double-check to make sure I filled out the shipping form correctly. If you need combined shipping, PLEASE request an invoice before paying! I cannot combine your shipping if you don't get an invoice with the combined rate on it from me because eBay won't let me insure more than one item per package otherwise!
