2003 Harrods Bear

Money back if not recieved in good condition, or not recieved at all. And that does happen. We sent back the palace and got a refund.
I believe , and please correct me if wrong, if a nice freind in London sent it you would have to have some kind of insurance, custom forms etc. and the cost of the shipping might be a lot higher. Not to menton the trouble it would be for the friend to buy it , pack it , post it etc.
That's a lot to ask.
And if you sent it back the friend would then have to take it back to Harrods.
Even thought about sending someone over to buy but you still have a customs problem if they bought very many and not worth it unless they could buy a lot. I think the limit is $400.

So you must take that into consideration as I believe it is 17 percent. Not sure!
Other friends in the States might be able to put you on the right course there, as they would know!
Parcels are normally registered but adjustments have to be made for receiving your end!

It is a case of swings and roundabouts I think.

Am I right Nancy? Is it perhaps a Scottish saying - my maternal grandparents were Scottish & the saying is very familiar to me!

What I saved on VAT I spent on the expensive courier service and customs duty when they got here. I may have to try the other way this year to see if there is any benefit.
I have a feeling it will be six of one and half a dozen of the other!
(but you never know it could turn out to be half a baker's dozen in my favour! )

By the way, I love the fact you're using the Locomotive.
