This post applies to people in the UK only!
As I have mentioned before the UK HM Revenue and Customs look out for incoming international packages worth over £18 and any package above this value could be taxed (not to say it will but you will be taking the risk)
HOWEVER as of the 1st of November they are lowering the threshold to £15 (around $23 at today's exchange rate)
Remember this does not include P&P I took this from the HM Revenue & Customs site:
With effect from 1 November 2011, the threshold over which
commercially imported goods are subject to import VAT will reduce from
£18 to £15. However please note this change does not affect any other
Customs thresholds or reliefs.
This means that from 1 November 2011, commercial consignments of £15 or less, excluding alcohol, tobacco products, perfume or toilet waters, will be free from customs duty and import VAT.
Commercial consignments with a value exceeding £15 imported on or after 1 November 2011 will be liable to import VAT.

This is bad news for us importers of everything American and Indie but it is what it is I wanted to give you fair warning so you can shop accordingly
Feel free to still play postal roulette :) as not all packages get picked up but don't say I didn't warn you lovely people
Hope this was of some help x
