tacogirl, do you know what the fastest, most reliable shipping method is? Might be able to get some stuff out if the shipping isn't outrageous.

also, go back to the best beaches thread - I left a question there for you. Thanks! smile

Shipping is usually pretty outrageous. Best to ask people to bring stuff down and send it to them in advance, if possible.

Hi Law

I have only dealt with regular us post so far.

I am an ebay shopper so I can find out ahead if shipping is reasonable before buying.

Light items like stickers and small toys are reasonable cheap to send though.

True Barbara.

Anyone coming down care to bring some stuff for Holy Cross Kids christmas?

Just a thought...it would save a lot of time and money if those going before Christmas could also take items donated by those not able to go but interested in helping. It's much cheaper to mail things within the country rather than internationally - not to mention a lot quicker.


It's never too late to have a happy childhood!

thanks tacogirl, the suggestion about sending with others makes sense. I've carried stuff back and forth for other people and it's really not a problem.

I think many people share that idea to send with people and it is always a good way to go if it works out.

At this point I am up to my eyeballs in glitter glue making small cards for the stockings we do not have yet and just praying it will all come together in time.

After a nice lunch with the girls, I am making an executive decision.

I am going to order a bunch of stuff from this website and hopefully a few people might be willing to pitch in.

http://sav-on-closeouts.com/

This makes it simple and easy.

For those of you who were planning to send stuff please continue on or join in this new plan if you like. smile

Taco,
when you have a total for your order, please post it. I will give you money once you know the total. Will you have a paypal account or something so people can give you some dough re mi for the fa la la? surely our kind, generous, handsome and lovely fellow boarders can spare some cha cha ching!

Now, WHO THE HELL IS COMING DOWN HERE BFORE THE 15th of DECEMBER?????? SOMEONE must be coming down!

The things you will need to bring will only take up a small portion of your suitcase. Taco will have the stuff shipped directly to you to bring down.

Capt Jeff, can you bring some stuff?

ANYONE ELSE? HELLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OUT THERE!

by the way, while mail seems like a good idea, it just pains me to spend a couple $100 US to get small boxes down here in time for the party which is only one month away.
