I recieved 2 packages this week, 1 was birthday cards and the second was Nintendo DS from Amazon, both packages were opened. Cant remember about the earings. The list of banned things is generally a mixture of obviousley illegal stuff and goods which may be damaged.

On the prohibited list is ceramics, i started collecting a few pieces of pottery by Clarice cliff which i bought off ebay, they were sent here no problem as they were labeled 'homewears' by the sellers. And they werent damaged either!

Is very hit and miss. I once ordered a watch that had tiny teeny diamonds on it, and they gave me grief because ' jewelry is not allowed madam' . Then I order stuff from VS and they sent me some free perfume and cream samples (which in theory are not allowed) and they didn't say a thing! But overall I love S&S, except when they increase their prices!

They deliver to my office but when i get the sms that the package is out for delivery i call them and get it re-routed to my house if im not in office. Alternatively you pick it up at their local office.
Ideal, thanks!
