When I got things at the store for people here, I got them and I went to see how much they would cost to ship, putting them in the box and just finding out the answer at the post office. But it occurs to me that usually doesn't happen here. But with all the different locations to ship to and all the different sizes, I can never really know until I weigh it there. So my question is, how do you find out how much shipping is to somewhere before someone even buys something? If I get something for someone and I have to send it to some other country, I don't want to surprise them with a $20 shipping or something.
Now there's something I'm looking for...
Is anyone selling this Shaymin? The one with the fuzzy top. This is one that I've occassionally thought about getting, because I have the talking Skymin, and thought maybe I should get his other form too. With this being Shaymin month, I thought it would be good. But the only one on ebay (that didn't look suspicious) is $57. (with $25 shipping! @_@) There's one on Amazon though I have no idea if it would be a legit one or not... the fact that it says they're 15 avaiable makes me leery.
EDIT: OH, it's not 15 available, it's 15 different people selling it. Even so, is this legit? For that low price?
Also, here's something I'm wondering.
I collect plushes, but what do you do with yours? Are you obsessed with them being untouched? Or do you get real close to them and don't care about hugging and having them on your bed and the like? I very much like to get real close with who I have, cause I adore them; that's the reason i bought them. Though often they just hang out on my shelves. But if I feel like I want to adore say, my Snivy, I take him off the shelves and proceed to adore the crap out of him.
What about you?
