They are doing ok, I don't have many of either as their trip was a rough one. Once in my posession, I have not lost any past the first day, but about 2/3 were lost in transit from Peru to Lima, and from Lima to NYC. I am *supposed* to be having replacements sent, but we all know how long it took me to get these, so I am not holding my breath.

As for shipping, I would cost it would be $25-35 for overnight to your area, or, if the weather is mild (which it is NOT here right now, single digits), 2nd day is available for less than $20. Second day is only a viable option when weather is good on both sides though, and we are having a crazy cold snap.
