A woman who received a parcel of underwear, handbags and meth shipped from Thailand "thought it was a game", a court has heard.
The trial of Lily Sara Foster returned for a third day at the Burnie Supreme Court after Ms Foster pleaded not guilty to a charge of attempting to import a marketable quantity of a border controlled drug.
The court previously heard Ms Foster and another man, 49-year-old Jason Peter Earle, had been caught on camera accepting a parcel filled with underwear and fake drugs during a police sting operation on April 16, 2019.

Earle gave evidence on Thursday morning, telling the court that he could not remember anything from that day except that he had been at his father's house on Main Street, Ulverstone.
"It's all pretty hazy, I'd drunk a lot," he said.
"I just remember getting off the Spirit (of Tasmania), coming back to Main Street, receiving a package and getting arrested.
"I'd drunk a lot on the Spirit and been up for days on drugs."
Earle said he could not recall anyone else who may have been present at the house that day, and could not remember what had happened between receiving the package and being arrested.
When asked about a series of messages about drugs found on both his phone and Ms Foster's phone between two people named "Big Cheese" and "Lil Cheese", he denied any knowledge of them.
"I was in Melbourne with a group of lads," he said.
"I was associating with a lot of drug dealers. A lot of people used the phone."
Crown prosecutor Patrick O'Halloran put it to Earle that he had previously pleaded guilty to the same charge of importing drugs, and that he had agreed at the time that "Big Cheese" and "Lil Cheese" were in fact himself and Ms Foster.
Earle maintained that Ms Foster had not known anything, and was in "way over her head".
The court was shown multiple video interviews with Ms Foster from April 16, 2019, during which she could be heard breathing heavily, swearing, crying and repeatedly asking what was going on.
"I must be stupid because I thought this was all a game," she told police during an interview.
"I was just a stupid person that was playing along. I thought it was just s*** talk.
"I thought he was trying to pump himself up, he was talking like a gangster. Just trying to get in my pants or something. I've had people say stranger things."
The defendant said in the video she did not have many friends, and had thought he was a "cool sort of guy" who was trying to impress her.
"I'm starting to hate him, because how can he do that to me? He knows I've got a little girl," she said.
"I should never have signed for that package."
The trial continues 10am on Friday.
