Any interest in doing a MdC group buy to lower overall costs for those who are interested in buying?

Interest here. After receiving mine I regretted not getting more than one. Of course it all depends on the exchange rate.

As much as I would love more MdC, I don't see this happening.

Well , all these things could be discuss. MdC is not sold in USA by any vendors , and actually in any other place , but in Paris and MdC store in France , so it makes a product very difficult to buy.I can see a MdC group buy happening.

Right now i am just judging interest and NOT working on one. If there is interest I will chat with Phil, but unless there is real interest there is no point and i will just get in on the next group buy at the other board.

It's not like this is available anywhere in the US.

Wasn't trying to be a downer, I just got the impression from the last time group buys were discussed that the Nook was going to be avoiding them in general

Mmmm, yes. But if it doesn't go through, that's okay, I was going to piggyback off someone anyway.

There will be interest, I am sure, but the shipping makes no sense after 4 jars if I remember correctly. Many attempts were made, but it's just easier to get 3-4 people to go in on it, don't forget to include domestic shipping.

Seems to scale well to me. Am I missing something?

I guess it would depend on the final cost delivered to my door.

As others said, depends on price. I've actually got some already but if it's a good deal, could always use a little more.

Yes, if all is Kosher here and it works out $$$, I am definitely down for some more MdC. Smile

but in phil's post, he says "The first step is to send me a PM. If it seems like it has potential, I will forward it to the moderator team for discussion..."

has that even been done? if not, this thread needs to be closed.

there is no point in posting about it unless it's gone thru the proper channels.

I've never tried MdC & would like to, depending on the cost and moderator approval I'm in.

All proposed group buys need to be sent to me so I can discuss it with the moderator team.

That said...MDC is a product that is not available to vendors and as such, I do not foresee any objections to the idea. If buying in bulk can save members some money, great!

When you have some specifics, please PM your plan and I will submit it to the mod team for discussion.

That's the plan here Phil. Last night I was just judging interest to see how much would need to be ordered, how much MdC would charge to ship, and then how much I would need to add from my end to ship this back out to everyone. I've heard from some MdC group buys that it ends up saving some money and from others it has not.
