I’ve been following with increasing alarm Britain’s exit negotiations with the European Union simply because of the massive, unprecendented uncertainty they have created. No-one has been able to say what aftereffects there will be, either for businesses or private citizens and residents.
No-one is even able to say exactly when Brexit happens. April 12, 2019, used to be a deadline, but obviously that never happened. At least it will give me a chance to address the issue here.

At the moment, Playfully Grownup Home customers in the UK can submit orders as normal. I will not make any immediate changes.
I will continue to fulfill my seller obligations as before, but any post-Brexit duties or changes to the customs process when packages enter the UK will remain the buyers’ responsibility.
However, I will be keeping an eye on the situation. Should the shipping be slowed down or otherwise encumbered too much by the new processes in place after Brexit, I reserve the option to end shipping to UK. I hope it won’t be necessary.
P.S. I do also think it’s incredibly shortsighted of Britain to leave EU, but whether they do or not is really not for me to decide. For the sake of UK friends and others, I hope the effects are minimal and manageable.
