(Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place... but this was the first that came to mind.)

 OK, so here it goes:

I love kitsch. I love plastic. I love pop culture. I love miniatures.
This makes me an addict of ArchieMcPhee-charms (as shown here: https://www.mcphee.com/fashion/current/11098.html.)

 I saw these cool charms at a local Swedish store and thought they were a tad bit too expensive (about 9$ for a set!!!!). I knew it would be cheaper to buy them online. But when visiting the site I noticed that there is only overseas shipping at a minimum order of 50$, which I don't have!

Boo hoo! Cry Sad story... But, I really need some plastic-y charms - who doesn't?! Roll Eyes
Since I know the McPhee store is in Seattle I'm wondering if any of you Seattle-ians has the <3 to help out a lady in need? I'm guessing someone in Seattle (or anywhere in the USA) has the same tacky taste as me, and hence visits the McPhee store/site some time (and then in fact might be able to pick up some extra for me)? No? Yes?

Is there any way I could talk you into doing me that BIG favour? Bribes? I'll do just about anything... Money? Oh, absolutely! Trade? Work? What the heck: I'd sell my dirty little soul if I had to! Wink

Any other ideas, ladies?

(If I actually had my friend still studying in Washington I'd be bathing in plastic charms right now... and then you wouldn't have to put up with my desperate ramblings... But oh, life is unfair!) Wink

Modified to add "important information": OK, I'm flipping out... NOW THERE'S A SALE!!!

Yo, I live in Seattle and am planning on going to Archie McPhee's soon. Email me at info@mikania.com and we can work something out. I'm going to PM you as well, but just in case you don't get it...

Check out the bulk beads when you stop by, too. They have some really cute ceramic pool ball beads for $0.05 each that I'm in love with. They're in the back and on the bottom of one of the containers in the bulk section, so they're kinda hard to see.
