Lindsay Davenport Bobblehead for sale on Ebay.....but....

I spotted it on ebay yesturday, though I was in luck. I was going to bid on it but I thought I'd better ask how much it will cost to post to the UK. I thought the postage within the USA was a bit steep at $10 (ie. £5ish). So I asked "how much would it cost for postage to the UK?" and their response was "around $25" (which is like £13). I was like ....I wanted to send an email back asking if the bobblehead was made of gold!

Yesturday I bought two large, heavy items from a seller in the States and postage for both is only going to be $40 (£20)....this bobblehead is a fiddly little thing that can easyly be protected with a bit of bubble wrap - they must think I've fallen off a Christmas tree if they think I'm going to pay that much!

Anyone who has that sort of money to spend can bid here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

As much as I want a bobblehead, I can't justify spending that much on P&P. I still can't believe it!

That's how they make extra money, by charging way more than it actually costs in postage. I hate it, ebay shouldn't allow it.

Now I might have considered it had they have told me $10.....they're just after the extra cash! I think I will give them what for! Are you sure it's the same item being sold by fritz22reds@yahoo.comif so, I might complain to Ebay. Do you still have the email? If so, can you send it to me at raygoin@yahoo.com (it's my ebay addy)?

If I don't complain to ebay, then I will at least hit the seller with the lower S&H quote

Gits!

well, maybe Ace Mag will do a "Win a Lindsay Davenport Bobblehead" competition! That's the only way i'm gonna be getting one! unless Wimby do something similar.

I did find a company online that makes bobbleheads from photos. You could even have one of yourself done but that costs $350 per bobblehead, unless you get 100 in which case they are $10 each! http://www.thebobblehead.com/how_it_works.html It's probably this company that the WTA used.

Ok, its fair to say i haven't been anywhere, i am just that lazy! But imback from my laziness and back on the case of getting A GOD DAMN BOBBLEHEAD!
I have been watching third watch marathon and now that it has ended forever i will be able to concentrate on getting me a little linds bobblehead.
People who think 'why doesnt she just buy one'-I HAVE NO MONEY and am from the north- we do not buy stuff, we borrow and never return!
DAMN IT, I still need a usa flag, i wonder where i could 'borrow' one from
