The 1k brick. Out of stock at WCS, delay in shipping at IB, not in stock at Bullgoose. Anywhere else that has super fast shipping for me to have before leaving Monday to go out of town?

Hi

Do you need the full 1kg brick, or just enough for a number of shaves?

Take care, Mike

Just enough maybe to do me for two weeks as I'm heading out as Dell's has become my go to soap.

Hi

Send me your mailing address via PM and I will send you a couple of chunks cut from a Cella 1kg block OR if you would rather I can send you one chunk of Cella and one chunk of VITOS (Red Label) cut from a 1kg block. Your call, just let me know via PM.

Take care, Mike

Hi Tony

Heads-up, I can't reply to your latest PM due to...

Quote:tsimmns has reached their private message quota so your message could not be sent.

Anyway, I will get the couple of Cella chunks in the post to you this evening (via UPS overnight shipping). I will send to the address you gave me via PM, if that isn't correct, please get back to me ASAP.

Take care, Mike

Thanks Mike. My inbox should be cleared now. Seems like I have the hardest time deleting messages on here for some reason.

Hi Tony

I have replied to your PM, if you can, please give me a call.

Long story, short version...
  • Yesterday evening I went to my local UPS shop.
  • Cheapest price for *guarantee* delivery today (Friday 20th Feb 2015) was $79 A47
  • Cheapest price for *guarantee* delivery Saturday 21st Feb 2015 was $49 A47
  • I wasn't expecting those amounts and simply could not bring myself to pay either without first speaking with you (even though you said you would cover the overnight shipping cost).
  • Especially as those couple of Cella chunks I am giving you (for free) aren't worth more than $5 in my eyes.
  • I sincerely hope I made the correct decision.
If you still want the soap before Monday, I can go to my local UPS shop later today and have it shipped to you, *guaranteed* delivery for tomorrow (Saturday 21st Feb 2015) would now be $79 A47

Or if you know of a cheaper option to get the soap to you before Monday, please let me know.

Anyway, please let me know what you want to do, either here in this thread, or via PM or a phone call...

Take care, Mike

Those will be very expensive samples! I would have never imagined Cella being a luxury soap! Biggrin

And oddly enough, the cheapest by far for US-addresses.
$27 shipped for the 1kg brick.  Add to cart and update shipping with zipcode to see the tax drop off.

But shipping would take a little longer than US-based vendors...

I see IB has Vito's Super Extra Bricks back in stock. If I was buying a brick of soap now, I'd take Vito's over Cella any day of the week.

When I bought my bricks, I went through Connaught and IB.

It always amazes me how cheap vendors can ship stuff and if I wanted to move my brick or half brick I'd be looking at $12-20 shipping from US to CAD

Hi Tony

Was good to talk to you, and you're words are far too kind.

The couple of Cella chunks went in the post (via USPS) yesterday, should be with you by Tuesday (24th Feb 2015).

Just out of interest, if I had gone to my local USPS office on Thursday, I could've:
  • Got *guaranteed* delivery to you by Saturday 21st Feb 2015 for $19.99 (Priority Mail Express).
  • Or risked Priority Mail (less than $6) to get to you by Saturday 21st Feb 2015, though it might have ended up getting to you on Monday 23rd Feb 2015 instead.
Take care, Mike
