What a rip off......


Kerry wrote about a yo yo  maker  in her blog a few weeks ago. I thought she was absolutely right, yo yo s are  the perfect portable project.



As I had an Amazon gift certificate to spend I went to that site first.  The  1-1.25" size is  $7. 50.....but they will not ship to Canada,



So I clicked on Amazon.ca.......the same item,  a whopping  $51...........what a rip off.

I ordered from a shop on etsy  ( $5.50 )  and was very satisfied.

    1. don't think we have a Michaels near here and I loath shopping. Just thought it might be a good way to start on my gift certificate

  2. Whoa! Surely that was a typo. No way would you ever pay $51 but then again I have seen some very weird pricing on amazon for some books too. Often there are a lot of things that won't be shipped here to Australia because of our consumer protection laws.

  3. It's so annoying that so many people won't ship to Canada - I guess the postage costs to ship here are just too much. Odd, too, that there would be so much difference in pricing.

  4. I am SO glad you persisted, though, and found a way to try this out! I hope you end up enjoying making the little yoyos, after everything you went through for them!
