Plush auctions and Southcenter kiosk pickups
Also, I am happy to announce that I am ready to begin pickups from the Pokémon Center kiosk at the Southcenter Mall in Tukwila, Washington, which is near my home.
Here's the kiosk stock as of yesterday:
* I have been a member of pkmncollectors since 2007 and was grandfathered into the sales permission system by denkimouse. Here is my pkmncollectors feedback page.
* I ship worldwide via the U.S. Postal Service. All items will be shipped First Class or Standard Post, with a tracking number included, unless the buyer requests another shipping service. I also offer Priority Mail and Express Mail service (these options include insurance).
** Items shipped First Class/Standard Post will be packaged in a new bubble mailer (hang tags will be protected). Items shipped Priority or Express will be shipped in a box at no extra charge unless the buyer specifically requests a bubble mailer. All large orders will be shipped in a box, at my discretion, regardless of the shipping service selected.
* No haggling, please.
* I accept PayPal and Amazon Payments for community-based pickups. All eBay-based transactions must be completed with PayPal.

I do not have these items in my possession yet. If you would like me to make a pickup for you, please make your request in the comment section of this post. Due to my current financial situation, I require advance payment for all pickup orders — no exceptions at this time. In the event an item is out of stock, I will issue an immediate and full refund.
I am currently offering unlimited slots, but I reserve the right to restrict quantities at any time.
My next pickup day will be this Saturday, December 14. All items picked up that day will be shipped out on Monday, December 16. If you live in the United States, this should be plenty of time before Christmas; however, I cannot guarantee international shipping times.
Also, just as with the plush auctions, please be aware that the kiosk occasionally causes minor damage (slight bends, small tears, etc.) to the hang tags of the plush it dispenses. The XY plush in particular have very large hang tags. I cannot guarantee the condition of the tag you receive, but I will protect it during shipping from me to you to prevent any further damage.
Please do not hesitate to comment with any questions! Thank you so much for your interest! :)
Oh, and while I'm here, I have to brag about one thing... ;)
On December 3, I was lucky enough to be invited to Nintendo of America headquarters in Redmond to attend a special get-together with President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. The other attendees and I got to chat with Reggie and play some new Wii U and 3DS games. You can view a group photo at this link — I'm the one representing #TeamChespin. You can also see my autographed 3DS (and Treecko pan sticker) here. :)
I asked Reggie why the only Nintendo World store is in New York City. He said NYC is the best U.S. city for game launch events (fair enough), so it makes sense to have the store there. It didn't sound like there are plans to build any additional stores. There is, however, a shop at NOA, but it's only open to employees and the guests of employees. It was closed during the event, so I wasn't able to check it out. NOA is very strict about visitors, so I felt fortunate enough to just hang out in the lobby for two hours!
I didn't learn anything about any new Pokémon games, but I had an awesome time and would be happy to answer any questions you guys might have about the event or what Reggie was like in person! And thanks for making it to the end of this super-long post! Cheers! :D
