    The blue thing is a silicone pill-bottle opener with a magnifying glass built into it to read the bottle labels. I put a little label on it to indicate what it was for, but just in case it got lost I thought I'd mention it.

    Addresses have been gathered for the next two contestants for box A. Mailing it tomorrow if I get the time. (Grandson is graduating and it may be a busy day.)

    Just out of curiosity since I'm coming up, how much is it to ship the box back out roughly?

    Are you kidding? Your beads were one of the best things in the box! That's why I picked two of them.

    it depends on the box, when i received box A is was a large shoe box and they wanted $48 to ship it out to WA from OH. So I put everything over into a large flat rate box. which was $18.

    How do they justify that. Those postal service places make absolutely no sense what so ever.

    I'd be happy if my flat rate shipping here was $18. Over in Canada, we pay baesd on weight and shipping box size ...... as well as distance. Cheap to ship inner province, but as soon as it leaves your province and enters another one, look out!!!!

    I'm not real sure, since the boxes were about the same size, but if i didn't have to pay $48 when I can send the same thing for $18, then I definitely took advantage of it! lol

    Creative packing can keep the box a medium fixed rate. ($12) It was a large box when sent to me, you can see how little I removed, I did add a bit to it but was able to fit it all in a medium box. What can I say, I'm cheap.
    There was little in there that could be culled, one bulky item that really took no room if you filled it with other items.
    One thing I do is purchase at least one item to add rather than just dumping unused items into the box. There are some nice things in there, also some crafty things, and some oddball items. (One item has been in there for a full loop, but it doesn't take much volume and someone may value it)

    We should all be using flat rate boxes.

    Yes., it should only be medium flat rate boxes... That way it's not cost prohibitive.... No matter what weight or destination in the U.S. It costs the same..



    As for ak's beads.. I would have scooped those up except for the fact he drew me for secret Santa so I have two already.. I didn't want to be stingy.

    If they were Copper.. :censored: you all they would have been mine ;)

    Can't resist copper

    Nope... it was hard to put them in, especially in trade for items with a $ amount of value... to me they're just something I do to kill time, and its Really hard to assign any value to them :cool:

    hmmm... I'll have to see what I can do about that... ;)

    you guys are running my humble and embarasment meters into the red! Y'all are far too kind! :oops::oops: :oops::oops::oops::oops:

    And on that note, am I even up in the running for a box right now? I skipped on getting both boxes in the past couple months, I wasn't sure if I could re-sign up to the list if I hadn't actually participated when i was "soposed" to this time around...

    I think that would be a poor reason to keep you out of the loop
