This week I mailed an item to Russia.
Last week, I mailed to Austria and the UK.
The week before it was Wales and Ireland, and the week before that the Netherlands.
There were also sales to different states in the US - New York, Washington, Washington DC, Ohio, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, Michigan, and Alabama. I've shipped to other states too, but not in the last month or two.
And in Canada, to British Columbia recently, but to other provinces in other months.
So, I've decided to add a list of countries to my blog! and states in the US and provinces in Canada. and show where I've been shipping. It's so exciting to see all the different places, whether it's close or far, it's still exciting.
For a great shopping experience, shop at my Etsy shops!
