|Penny Black 30-063 Mimi & Miles|
I actually did not plan to purchase anymore stamps after the recent purchase of Hero Arts CL145 Baby Girl (which is yet to arrive by the time I am writing this post even that stamp was shipped earlier!). Somehow, my husband persuade me to buy another stamps or craft supplies I want.
I always have a habit of buying direct from the manufacturer. Thus, I go to Penny Black website to check out. However, their International shipping fee is very expensive (cost more than the stamp I want to purchase) which I quit the intention to buy direct.
I look for Simon Says Stamp store and the shipping fee is very expensive too but when I look at their eBay Simon Says Stamp store, the shipping fee is reasonable. I been weighing between buying two (2) Hero Arts sparkle clear stamp (2"x3" size with gems) which cost about USD5.99 each or buying another brand stamps. Well, I finally settled to buy another brand stamp since the amount I pay is about the same. So, why not buy another brand stamp that is on my wish list, right?
Thus, I look for the stamp I want which is Penny Black 30-063 Mimi & Miles. The price in eBay Simon Says Stamp store is about the same in Penny Black website but the shipping fee is way cheaper. However, I always look for saving in my money whereby I search for another intensive search in the whole eBay for the cheapest price. Somehow, only eBay Simon Says Stamp store offered the best price inclusive shipping fee.
I made my payment on 29 September 2011 and they confirm my shipment on 30 September 2011. After about a week, finally the Penny Black 30-063 Mimi & Miles arrived on my doorstep! I hope I can get this stamp set inky as soon as possible especially on these few months as there are many couples getting married (due to good months of Chinese lunar calendar).
