18masterkyle paid - we apparently had some communication confusion, so the delay wasn't entirely his fault...

anyway, just two left to pay.

I have an idea for AARST's stuff.

Might it be a good idea to send it in batches of 2 or 3 (or even 1)? For instance send stuff people in the US who are known to be careful packers so that there aren't a dozen packages making the trip across the ocean? It might work out cheaper, not sure.

I have one item for AARST and one item for Kingmod.

I notified Dsh that I'd pay for stateside, but not International shipping. Ever the generous one, Dave said he'd help with shipping costs. If we can combine packages, and save Dave some money, I am all for it. Hell, I'd be happy to triple my previous shipping costs if it would help.

I have 2 GG games for AARST, so if we do consolidation it would probably be better for me to send them to someone as they're super light. But I don't mind being a collection point either.

I personally will just ship my stuff by itself. The combined shipping idea is fine, but it may add some extra costs and time to get items where they need to go. If several donors want to collaborate do this, I suggest you work it out via PM (and do so quickly!).

Also, while I am indeed personally covering some of the shipping expenses for those who requested it before the auction started, you also owe a debt of thanks to Ack, fastbilly1, and racketboy - they all chipped in to cover those requested shipping costs, even though they didn't actually win any items. In addition, international buyers chipped in extra to cover expenses for some of the larger items/lots. All told, there is around $150 in shipping costs that are being covered by these extra payments!

There is much more being covered by those donors who are able to pay for shipping themselves...it took a lot to make "free shipping" work out, so all the donors really do enjoy some major kudos.

Rebz...I will be shipping yours on Monday as well. The online shipping service won't allow me to send items first class to your country so I will need to take care of that at the post office.

I'll start tucking away a few things here and there for next years auction.


It's all good, thanks for letting me know :D

Ok, looks like it will only be a little over $3 for me to send the GG games, so probably not worth consolidating in my case. Could still be worth it for bulkier stuff though.

Whew, just got all the stuff boxed. I'll try to have them sent out by Wednesday. I'll be sending most of the bigger lots by standard ground shipping, and smaller ones by air. If someone wants their package sent by some other (faster) method, or wants a tracking number by paying the difference, PM me and let me know before Wed. afternoon.

On the lot of misc Xbox & GBA stuff being re-auctioned, feel free to split it up, I have lots of small boxes left.

I managed to fit the stuff Aarst won from my lots into a decently small (slightly bulging) package, so no problem shipping that on my end.

Thanks again to Dsheinem. Wish I'd noticed that list down there before I labeled everything.
