CHILL OUT. Take a few deep breaths. DON'T WORRY.
Chicago is a regional sorting center for mail being shipped from the U.S. to overseas destinations. It is the LAST time your package will likely be scanned until it is delivered.
We get NO updates when it goes through Customs, nor do we know the whereabouts of any order until it is delivered to you. Then it is scanned in and we get a delivery confirmation.
In the post-9/11 world, there are also all sorts of security measures in place to screen packages, and during busy times of the year this sometimes slows things down a little bit. It is taking Customs offices in some countries longer to clear items than it typically has in the past.
So don't be unrealistic in thinking your package is going to be mailed on a Monday and reach you in Timbuktu on Wednesday. That won't happen.
ALL orders are processed promptly by professional fulfillment centers who have an excellent track record. But on-time delivery is totally out of our hands once a package leaves U.S. shores.
If in doubt, contact your local Customs office and/or post office.
Better yet, go to page 2 of my site (click the link below) and pick out the product(s) you want and get them ordered NOW to assure delivery before Christmas. -- JULIE
