    Unfortunatelly thats how some sellers make those extra few pounds by bumping up their postage price when infact it will probably cost half of that,but by buying the item you then agree to accept that price for the item and the postage.I do think though that when you get your item you can make a dispute in Paypal regarding the price for postage if its significantly cheaper (the postage label/sticker should say on the parcel).
    Ive had a few parcels come via 2nd class recentley and they have arrived pretty sharpish-like within 5 days at the most.So aslong as they post your item this week you should definately have it hun x

    Also when you leave feedback for them (when you have your item) I would mention the postage price/delivery time too x

    She is sending a £25 item 2nd class standard parcel???

    She really shud send it tracked because if it gets lost in the post she will be oout of picket and you wont have a gift.

    You can report her for excessive postage and when you get mark her stars 1 with 1 for postage and delivery times.

    She won't be able to send it 2nd class, it'll weigh too much! She might send it standard parcels but its risky without tracking for a costly item.

    When they say 8~10 they are probably being safe as if they put 3 and it was held up by royal mail they would get crap feedback where as if they say 8~10 days and it comes faster the customer will be happier x
