Shipping regular post for $1.25 in Canada is an option I only use if I need to send a chain on its own or something that is inexpensive and relatively flat.
If you are selling five dollar earrings this may be an option for you but, keep in mind that sending earrings without a box can put stress on the earring hooks. Depending on the type of hooks you use the loops can open up when they are pressed down by the weight of other postal packages.
This is particularly true of lever back style hooks. When they are forced to turn sideways the loops will bend and open therefor it is best to be careful when it comes to shipping earrings.
