  1. Will you ever be choosing a method of sale that will ship to the UK. I would really like one of your sketchbooks but Amazon won't ship it to me.


  2. Hi Louise. You would like to order a Leda sketchbook but live in the UK and Amazon doesn't ship there from the US.

    We will be selling in Europe this time next year 2017. We need to set up a bank account in the UK and get products in the warehouses there first.

    I would be happy to mail you one from our office if you are willing to pay for shipping. I will give you the book at no charge (since Mother Leda really likes our UK friends.)

    Shipping by UPS will be around $24 I think (can get the exact amount when I know your address) and you can pay by PayPal to my account. But, we will be getting a new shipment of books next week so I can't do this until July 8. gary.gillespie@northwestu.edu

    Or you can send us a certified check made out to me.
