Are sellers really that sticky about shipping to specified locations? Wouldn't they just sell to the winner anyway, maybe add extra shipping? You guys are the ebay pros, I'm a noob....a noob seeking enlightenment....RRW

Apologies; I added this one to my watch list right at the start and was surprised to see that no-one had pounced (including yourself) when I received a reminder, today.

Been missing quite a few good ones lately, my mind has been elsewhere...

Shipping international is a pain.  You have to fill out customs forms, tracking is impossible - and insurance claims are about impossible or lengthy at a minimum. I don't mind sending modules via GPM, but packing any boxed set sucks and it is expensive plus you really don't ever have a fixed price until it goes on the scale at post office.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Congrats. :D   So what are the chances of you picking the name Orson too. :wink:

Some will ship it to you anyway, but I'm not about to take the risk that they'll refuse, charge a fortune, etc.  I always inquire before I bid if it isn't stated explicitly.

*g*. Good question. ;)

It risks pulling a neg, but under exceptional circumstances I might be tempted to bid and pay asap with a hefty markup for the seller's goodwill. (Was seriously considering doing so with that recent one Brian eventually BIN'd).

If the auction text re-iterates "ships to US only", I'd be much more wary than if it didn't.

Usually there's enough time to obtain a response from the seller as to whether international shipping is OK and, when a response is given, it's positive over 90% of the time.
That's just my personal experience, however.

Imo, it's a matter of courtesy. If a seller doesn't say they'll ship to Canada, then I don't bid without asking (at least not intentionally). To do otherwise is making a pretty big assumption, and imo, a rude one to make (assuming hte seller is fine with taking the extra time to ship to me, instead of Joe Smith in his own country).

Hornby Pack D: Track | eBay

Dwarven Glory - check out his other auctions as well - loads of odds and ends including several fanzines.
Interested to know where this lot came from - ebay id doesn't put him down as a gamer but I haven't done any research/asked any questions

It's always great to get an expansion item you weren't expecting!

Hope the Stork's shipping and handling is reasonable.

Thanks for all the warm wishes, folks.  

My wife's family is part Finnish, so I was thinking I was thinking of Vainamoinen if it's a boy, Mielikki if it's a girl.  On second thought, picking my children's names from Legends & Lore might give them a complex...  :?

Grayson:  That stork bit had me rolling in the aisles.   :lol:
John:  Yes, the Australlian sellers are on my hotlist now, since I'll be up anyway. :)  Vlad isn't a bad name, (and I do speak a very tiny bit of Romanian), but I'm trying to avoid alliteration.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread...

If it's a boy, you should name him, um, Frank. I'm pretty sure it's a Finnish name.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

When we had our first boy a good friend of mine told me not to curse him with a quirky name from one of my D&D books 8O   So we didn't, we named him Rohan, still nobody gets it. 8O
