You're so lucky, MR. Mango! I was placing an order, but shipping was $90 (so $110 CND). I could pay it & am used to being gouged on shipping, but that's too much gouging in one go. I'm used to more like $40-$50 USD per order.

Too bad, post-COVID I had plans to put my nieces & nephews to work manufacturing jewellery (for them) & bird toys for my budgies. :roflmao:

@Susan and Oliver The coupon doesn't work. I get an error message. Hot on the heels of the above disappointment, I tried to place an order with you. Got this error. Any ideas?

I'd also like the boings to not have loose ends. I need the ends to be longer, so I can braid them or them to be somehow covered. Pistachio carefully severs loose thread & eats it. :eek: He's obsessed. I covered the loose ends of their ring swings with vet tape, thanks to an idea of saroj12. But I'd like to avoid the issue this time. Is this possible?

I finally put in my calibird nerds order and am so excited I can't wai to recieve it, btw @calibird when its shipped will I be emailed a tracking code? :bliss:
I would love to send you tracking information. However, I just sent you an email about getting assorted colors and the email bounced back to me. Not exactly sure why. I will send you a private message with tracking information. You will receive an assortment of colors.

@calibird Is it possible to get an accurate quote before placing an order? It's usually a pain to get an actual monetary refund out of PayPal. I don't have my cart anymore & had spent ages assembling it. Would it be saved anywhere? It won't be in my browser, as I clear the history in between shopping destinations.

I can see your shopping cart. I will send you the order in an email. Without me counting and packaging everything up their isnt a way to know how much the physical order weighs. By looking at the order I know it is under 4 pounds which gives you First Class International. The shipping charge would be no more than $45.

@Sparkles99 @iamwhoiam and others that have carts with Oliver's Garden...the code works now spring21

No one will ever call me a tech wizard. Happy shopping everyone.
Thanks. Had a lot of stuff to do this AM but am now going to work on my order. Have to finish going through the hoarded toys first. :D

@Susan and Oliver Code is working just fine now. I did leave a note to get 3 Triggers natural/3 colored and also to get the Fish Stick natural if possible.
Thanks!!
Going through toy hoard I found an anchor, two Jimmy Halfa Lobstas, two Spring Poseys, a turkey, a dog, and more. I really need to inventory the toys, make a list and cross items off as they are used so I know when they need to be replenished.

Thanks for the order @iamwhoiam Re your toy stash...are you one of the AA toy hoarders? I've heard there are a few of them here. Put those Spring Poseys in their cages.

Yes, I am a very naughty toy hoarder. I still have some toys from Mother Pluckin'
Keno got a Spring Posey, Casey got the Plain Jane and Mulder got Fish Stick.

I really struggled with the site as it kept deleting my cart! Says it went through- (sorry it’s so large, Queenie’s birthday and she’s a shredder)- anywho it looks like some plastic beads didn’t make it on there. Can I add to the order since it’s already gone through without paying more shipping? If I can’t, that’s okay I’m sure she’ll be okay with the amount she’s already getting.

If you stash toys long enough are they considered vintage? Keno, Casey and Mulder-enjoy your toys.

If they are discontinued they become highly collectible. I think that the Mother Pluckin' ones must be worth a lot of $$$$$$ since that store has closed. :D
There are several members here who are hoarders but they aren't brave enough to admit it. :laugh:
