You are the king at playing Oliver Twist.
It is true though, you need to take things slowly when you're saving up for your Mosman mansion.
Just a quick one, I posted a message regarding a bulk order of Saphir Shoe polish for those of us based in Sydney on an old thread. The order count is around 30 at the moment, if you are interested please let me know:
Thanks Andrew for coming up with this idea on a bulk purchase for Saphir Polish. The original post was made a while ago so I hope it was a success.
I don't want to hijack this thread so Andrew if you are running this again please let me know.
Otherwise there seems to be some interest for another order so I would be happy to put my hand up to arrange another order. I have ordered before from Saphirs own distributor valmour.com and found it to be the best price. I also swear by the Creme Surfin and the Universal Cream Polish, pretty much the best shoe polish you can get at a very reasonable price.
I have done some numbers and it comes out as follows (currently I have 23 units and growing by the day).
* Creme Surfin Polish: A$5.85 + $3.42 shipping = A$9.27 landed in Oz
* Universal Cream Polish 150ml = A$8.81 + A$5.15 shipping = A$13.96
* Universal Cream Polish 500ml = A$21.18 + A$11.48 shipping = A$32.66
For the Creme Surfin I checked ebay and they were going for A$9.96 plus A$9.33 shipping = A$19.29 so I think this is a pretty good deal.
And the more purchases we get here, the cheaper it gets! As we are getting it posted we get the VAT taken off plus I have used a 5% discount coupon, win!
Just like Andrew please note there's no profit or skim in this at all. I'm happy to circulate a spreadie which shoes all the costs, everyone order to it's all above board (with receipt).
Look forward to hearing from those who are interested, again I hope the original poster Andrew doesn't mind me doing this, just want to keep a good thing going.
I'm looking to round out the orders in two weeks time, so do PM or reply to this thread soon!
To keep it simple I'm thinking that this may be a Sydney based order so I can the items to you. Pick up preferred Inner West or CBD drop off also available. Ps also I realise I'm new to Style Forum so I go easy on me!
Not even 24 hours ago you were asking about Loake Evoloution and now you want to buy Lobbs.
And I thought I was addicted to menswear.
Wherever I hang my Akubra Federation IV mate, that's my home.
Seriously though, I'm in Melbourne about 50%, Sydney about 30% and still hanging on in Shanghai about 20% of the time. Too much time in aeroplanes but it's kind of nice to be in a different place each week.
Right now this minute? Sydney.
