Mdina bottle on ebay
« on: September 30, 2010, 08:46:54 PM »
Just listed an early Mdina bottle on ebay, they don't appear every day so I'm giving it this extra nudge: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160487587863&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT

I chose the name because it made me ;D too. The river Taff is a couple of hundred yards away, twice in the past fifty years it has flooded the ground floor and cellars here. :cry:

The cost of postage for the bottle is high, the packaging weighs almost twice as much as the bottle and it all weighs over 3kg. It's a big box and there is loads and loads of bubble.... Postage to Australia would be, sit down for this, eighty quid, same for New Zealand.

 :cry: Many thanks John- O.K. I can breathe easy- the bottle is not for me- the postage is even worse than from here (Aust) to New Zealand. Many thanks Carol

No it's almost twice as expensive, £156.39 for 4 day delivery and £130.69 for 9 day delivery. :o :thud:

I could pack it so that bottle and packaging weigh less than 2kg, then the postage cost to Australia and elsewhere would be around a third of the cost. The thing is, I want it to arrive in one piece.

This site is usually competitive for international deliveries over 2kg: http://www.parcel2go.com/

Cheers,
John

Thanks Roy, funnily enough that is the other site I have bookmarked and sometimes use, for Australia they are a little cheaper.  :)
