Many thanks for the help!
We are going to risk it and see what happens at the other end. We have 3 lovely antique chairs with rush seats that we don't want to throw away unless we definately have to. Our dining chairs also have woven seats. Our shipping agent doesn't think we'll have a problems even though the customs website says the opposite. We don't know who to believe and thought we'd see what happens. We'd be upset if we got rid of things we didn't have to.
I'm surprised that you had to leave your Lloyd Loom things Graham as they are made of wire and paper and don't contain any wicker etc.
no wicker, I was gutted i had to leave my girls pretty baskets.
Never mind that was the first time i thought of them since arriving here.lol

like all above, we have been told, no wicker, no bark, nothing made from hazel twigs, no pine cones blah de blah..... currently butchering my xmas decos; the boot sales have been splendid for getting rid of the wicker baskets etc. maybe i could dispense with the wall placques made from bark and stuff, but NO way do i lose my tree......
