Hi, All.

I have a little problem. I want to get one of these since the price is very good in their offer, but unfortunately the EU warehouse seems to have sold out while I was humming and hawing about it. Which took all of four days, of course smile

The US warehouse appears to have them in stock, but is highly disinclined to let me order them from the UK, even assuming I wouldn't then get some huge shipping charge. I was wondering if anyone on the left side of the pond would be up for getting a set, and forwarding them on to me via some suitably low-cost shipping method? If such a thing exists these days, of course.

Any takers?

Is there any hurry? I think my sister-in-law has a trip to Cambridge in April.

No massive hurry at this end, but it probably needs to be ordered before they run out of stock in the US as well smile

If she is coming over, and is willing to bring it with her, that would be massively appreciated.

Oops...I just called and she's not going until July now. And she's going to Oxford, not Cambridge. I knew it was one of those University towns smile If you haven't found anything earlier, I'm sure she'd be happy to bring it over.

Edit: Mexicans say "Estadounidense" in place of USAian which works out roughly equivalent.

Either place is fine by me, but the timing isn't ideal smile Thanks anyway.

I will have to call the EU warehouse tomorrow and see if there is any way they can get some more in, since they're in the US, if all else fails.

I am in Canada, but I make regular use of a US ship center located ‘just across the border’ in Grand Island, USA. Family business, but does a lot of shipping including international. Trustworthy and good people to work with.

I can provide the contact info, if you wish to pursue.

You (or someone) would be paying 8% NY sales tax plus $20US shipping to get it to Grand Island. Then whatever it costs for them to ship the package on to you over there.

I'd be interested in the details, thanks. It may end up being too pricey but it's worth a shot smile
