CalenDolores 2020: 2nd version and lower shipping cost

December 16, 2019  |  Comments Off on CalenDolores 2020: 2nd version and lower shipping cost  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Following many complaints regarding the expensive shipping costs for non-US residents of the CalenDolores 2020 available from Etsy (and where you couldn’t even combine shipping when ordering 2 copies or more) theHand made a second version of his calendar available from Lulu where shipping costs are more reasonable.

Pay attention, this is really a second version of the calendar and not the same as Etsy shipped from another seller. There are several differences such as format, materials and number of pages. The price of the calendar is a little more expensive compared to the Etsy version, but if you add shipping it makes a big difference (again for those living outside the US) and combining is possible!

COUPON CODE: ONESHIP (free or reduced shipping costs until December 19th)

NEW COUPON CODE: LULU15 (save 15% on calendar until January 2nd)
NEW COUPON CODE: ONEFIVE (save 15% on calendar until January 2nd – UK & Ireland only)

Vinyl Digital: Date of delivery, 22.11.2019
Bilbo (Belgium): Release date, 22 November 2019
Ginza (Sweden): Release date, 22.11.2019

When a few others are announcing the 29 May 2020:

Rough Trade (UK): Release date, 29/05/20
Saturn (Germany): Release date, 29.05.20
Amazon (Germany): Release date, 29 May 2020

There is even one eBay seller announcing the release for the 29 November 2019.

So who is right?

There is another Dolores O’Riordan mural in Limerick city. These kind of things happen… 2 murals done in the same city more or less at the same moment.
