I frequently see questions around the internet on how or if you can ship perfume. I've sold a couple of bottles of perfume myself and had looked up the rules and regs to do it correctly. Below are statements all copied and pasted directly from the USPS site. I hope it helps clarify the rules for some people. I had also seen somewhere that if your package does contain restricted items it is to be handed directly to a postal employee not put in a drop box etc. I couldn't find that while I was making this post. It's probably so that they can ensure it is marked properly. I do know that when I've mailed perfume and brought it directly to the desk it is marked with stickers to make sure it only goes ground and that it does contain flammable
At retail units, mailers must be asked the question: “Does this parcel contain anything fragile, liquid, perishable, or potentially hazardous, including lithium batteries and perfume?”
Examples of items that may be mailable but have specific restrictions…
- Lithium Batteries
- Nail Polish
- Perfumes containing alcohol
- Pool Chemicals
- Certain Glues
- Live Animals
- Cremated Remains
Perfume − Perfume containing alcohol is prohibited on air transportation, and can only be shipped domestically via surface transportation. Perfume containing alcohol is prohibited in international shipments
Not sure if what you’re sending is restricted or prohibited? Just call 800-ASK-USPS® or your local Post Office.
This weekend I am going away for a mini vacation at my sister and brother in laws cabin. A nearby town is having a city wide rummage sale! I'm hoping to find lots of great buys and cool treasures. I'm expecting it will probably be my last chance to do rummage sales this season. If you are in the area the sale is in Weyauwega Wi. By the way that isn't the actually cabin we'll be staying in :)
Do you have any weekend thrifting plans?
