    Default International purchasing and shipping help-Members assist each other

    OK. This is my Grail of SK books as I'm sure it is for a lot of people on here. It's Gunslinger 1st/1st for dirt cheap. It's in OK shape but does have a little more wear and tear than I'd like. Still... I want it. Therein lies the problem though. Seller won't ship outside US. I'll dip into savings for this and send you the money as soon as you hit BIN. You will have money in your Paypal account before you have to pay.

    This is the link and I hope whoever clicks on this is clicking because they're considering helping me and not buying the book.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...%3DI%26otn%3D1

    You can make an offer so maybe start at $320 and go until it's accepted.

    I've only bought from two people on here but I would pay within minutes of receiving the invoice.

    Come on, TDT, do me a "solid".

    Pretty please?

    I can't help you as I'm outside The States myself. But it has been done before so I hope someone helps you out! Good luck!

    It sure is. It's incredible.

    I would've paid $350 last night when I saw the auction without even thinking about it. I'm not a fan of paying through Paypal and funding the purchase through CC (3 days away from payday) but I'm willing to bend my own rules for The Gunslinger.

    Is that a good price for it, given the d/j condition?

    I'm not saying it is or isn't...I have no idea.

    I wouldn't know but let me use a (most likely flawed) analogy: a really nice 1st Carrie goes for about the same price as a really nice 1st Gunslinger, I think (guesstimate: $750? The exact price doesn't really matter).

    Well, my Carrie 1st is an ex-library copy which looks amazing (a small stain on the spine and some glue residue on the front endpaper, but no stamps or any other flaw - I would say both book and DJ are NF) and I got it for $325. Based on that, I would say that this copy of The Gunslinger is not worth $350.

    BUT, if you want it, any price you're willing to pay is the right price.

    Many thanks to Mulleins, I am now an owner of The Gunslinger 1st/1st. I know that's nothing compared to the lettered and slipcased editions of the book but realistically... I'll never own one of those.

    This is the $$$ breakdown:

    the book $350
    new(er) DJ $120
    shipping $4 to Mulleins + whatever it cost to ship it to me

    I still think it's a good deal.

    If you can get a nice DJ for $120, then it's not a bad deal at all!! Congratulations! And kudos to Ralph and this community in general

    I've got quite a few 1st DJ's. From VG to Fine. PM me if interested and maybe we can work something out.
    I guess it all comes down to a simple choice for me. "Get Busy Living, or Get Busy Dying".

    I think we'll have to figure out the best way for members to make these type of requests for personal favors.

    Yet another great example of TDT.comradery! I've missed out more than once on great books because the seller simply refused to ship overseas (even when I was the only bidder) so it feels good to know that, should it happen again, I can give The Corner a try
