Cute item but postage hell
Saw this ship's plaque on eBay. Looks quite cute with the elephant and all. But the postage on this- is close to 50 pounds (that's practically Aussie $200).
Sometimes the sellers are quite happy to change the postage. I bought three porcelain pieces from this lady in England- the initial postage cost was 10 pounds- but she changed it to 5 pounds later and sent it by economy air. It still got to me the same time as did a first class couriered parcel which cost me 16 pounds.
I'm getting a friend in England to bid this for me- and then I'll meet up with him- sometime in the future to get it off him.
