The UK has now left the EU, and trade between the parties has become much more complicated than we are used to it being. VAT and import charges are being added on goods travelling in both directions. Extra costs to bear for both small businesses and the end customer.

Going through the procedure to register for VAT in the UK is simply not worth the time and the extra work at this point, when the majority of orders exceed the £135 VAT threshold. So we had to make the decision to put an order minimum of 160€ for UK orders until further notice. 
You can still shop Lena Quist designs from the UK. For orders of lower amounts we kindly ask to make the purchase through the Etsy shop, which will remain order minimum free, as Etsy is bearing the VAT responsibility. 

Unfortunately these new regulations also mean that sample designs are no longer available for photo shoot loans for UK stylists and photographers, due to the extra paperwork of sending and receiving the items back.  
Our hope is that the trade relationship between the UK and the EU will get better and clearer over time, but as of early 2021 this is where we are. We are truly sorry for how this affects our customers.
