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.
or you could go to Michael's with your 40 per cent off coupon....ReplyDelete
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 certificateDelete
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.ReplyDelete
weird pricing in Canad too....same reason i suspect.Delete
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.ReplyDelete
i believe they just charge what they think they can get away with.Delete
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!ReplyDelete
wow that's some price hike!! I hope you're feeling better...ReplyDelete
