PostSubject: My Recent Additions for an Amazing Price   Mon Nov 11, 2013 1:31 am

Not to long ago a very exciting package arrived, inside it two figures I got for an unheard of price! Shocked Shocked 

It always drives me crazy when sellers put all of their figures in a big lot and sell them together for a very high price.

This seller had 9 Schleich figures put together in a lot, all of them fairly common except for two. (At least in the US, these are hard to find - I don't know about other countries scratch )

Without much hope, I asked the seller if he would take those two out that I wanted to sell them alone.


Surprisingly, the seller was very willing to do this! And he gave a very shocking price for them too! affraid affraid cheers cheers  Shocking as in good, that is. Wink Cool 


So I had done this several times before with different sellers, and each time someone else bought it before me. Sad We worked out a system that hopefully I would be able to get this one in time. This was a set I really, really wanted. cyclops 


He was in a different time zone, and by the time he said he would be home to list them was when I would be in a meeting. Crying or Very sad 

It was listed though, and I still got it during a break! cheers 

For the price I paid, I didn't expect much. I figured they'd have tons of rubs...

but, look!











They're almost new! cheers cheers cheers 


I had been looking for the basset ever since I knew about it, and the kitty was an added bonus. sunny 


My real basset, Happy, likes her new friend:

(Please excuse poor Happy's raw skin - she has been tested to be allergic to literally everything, including her own dander Crying or Very sad )




I can't believe I finally found these! bounce bounce bounce cheers cheers cheers

Thank you very much Susanne! cheers 

Unfortunately there isn't much we can do for Happy but give her healthy food and baths! We tried the allergy shots, but they did nothing except for emptying the wallet. Though she is much better now that we found a very good quality dog food - not the junk they sell in pet stores. Very Happy

Thanks Tim! Yes, I was very pleasantly surprised when the seller gave me the quote! Shocked And the way he worded his message it sounded like he thought that was high price. Laughing He definitely didn't know what he had! cheers
