Postage Matters
Just Tassie Books and The Book Cellar post out phone and online orders daily (Monday to Friday). We are more than happy for buyers to request a signature on delivery but our default position is that regular items are posted without requiring a signature, because we know it can be a serious imposition on book buyers to have to retreive their parcels from the nearest post office. Similarly if you wish to specify a particular place for the postie to leave a parcel please include your instructions with your book order.
