Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

Thanks guys, some great advice there. Hope you don't mind but I have a couple more noob questions as we go along. I want to trade a poster for another poster, and likely some cash as the poster I want is worth more than the one I am trading. What's the process for that? Which are the uk forums you m...

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

Well, I did not want to pay $40 shipping for a $110 Whalen NYC Giants print, so he said he would be happy to do it for $20, but it would have to be by paypal gift, as he had been burned before, which is understandable. thanks for the advice - much appreciated indeed.

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

Hey Chenley, I have not been in to flood, but did contact him as i have a large collection of Alien Corset prints, and wondered if he would be interested in bulk buying them - he told me he gets a lot of his prints below cost direct from artists, which sounded odd to me. did you buy something there?...

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

Tentatively, I think I just scored my first ever drop with Whalen's NY giants! Can hardly believe it - well that is until i get a refund for oversell - so we will see! almost time for several of :pint: in celebration!

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

thanks all, some interesting info. would you buy from another eb member using the Paypal Gift method for an untracked item? (ie so you cannot get your money back if the poster never arrives?). I agree on the tracking/postage if the value is high, and not to bother when the value is low. Thanks for t...

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

Thanks for all of the responses guys. Perhaps we need a US PB to collect all of our purchases, and then amalgamate into one tube to make the $40 worth it. crazy to be so expensive - I am yet to ship to the US, but how much are we charged for that with tracking? I read somewhere you can have it done ...

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

To all the UK guys out there - how much would you expect shipping to be from the USA? I regularly get quoted either $20 (which is acceptable), but also get quoted $48 which also makes it unpalatable, especially if you get stung with customs as well? Any help appreciated for the noob here.

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

that's a lovely part of the world - spent some time in some of the pubs down that way about 2 years ago as a friend used to live just off the roundabout by the petrol station, by Peckham Rye. she moved to NYC, so don't get down there too much any more. Currently working in Brixton, which i absolutel...

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

Hey Chenley, you are right - perhaps they are not to my personal taste either. Perhaps if i had been a bigger fan of some of the stuff, it would have floated my boat a little more The only one I was really interested in from the avengers was the Thor print - it was stunning, and for me the standout ...

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

What's the general opinion been on Mondo's recent drops? I have felt it is a little uninspired compared to previous years? there are some standouts, but nothing I would rush to put up on the wall...

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

Ooh! Welcome by the way :D Thanks very much indeed for the welcome! I get you on the drops business, your analogy is correct - the feeling of frustration is palpable. wish there was a better way that it could be done. I was lucky enough to snag Mr Moss' 3 films in Black and Red and also the master ...

Re: Place for UK users to gather/trade/chat!

Hey Guys, a newcomer here, and glad i finally found a UK centric thread. more of rugby fan than a football fan, but if pushed, Chelsea (apologies) would be my team as grew up in South London. Anyone else here massively underawed by trying to get prints when they drop? I have tried a few recently (en...
