Customs?

Alice's new coat has arrived , according to a card ( and not the much longed for parcel ) through the door whilst I was drying my hair this morning .... how come I always hear the people demanding money , but not those delivering goodies ?
But it has been quarantined by the post office who have taken it away and will not bring it back until I pay the £ 13 plus they tell me it owes in Customs Dues . How does this work ? If I order something from the States , do I have to pay the Post Office ?
The thing that really gets to me is the thought of that long snaking queue going from the post office counter all round the car park twice and back ... oh well thats tomorrow .
And then Alice will have her fleece .
Roll on snow and ice ?

I just mailed a small package, a bracelet, to the UK. It cost me 20 dollars U.S. I couldn't believe it! I don't understand international shipping at all, the customs forms and all that. I hope it all turns out well in the end cause I'm looking forward to Alice modeling the new coat!!
