Just a quick update to say that the kit is in the FedEx depot at Stanstead airport.

It seems it can't be released until I supply an EORI number which I have applied for today.

Normally turnaround by HMRC for these is 48/72 hours, but they are currently taking 5-7 days.

This means the kit may not be released until early January.

But at the end of the day, this should not impact on my expected posting timescales anyway

Hi, I registered for the pirate bazaar a couple of weeks ago but my details haven't been activated. Does anyone know an admin I could ask about it?

Would really appreciate any help!

Hi GringoSnail, you've now been activated. Sorry for the days but it was actually only 7 days ago you registered (21st) and I've been a bit occupied during this time!

There is not actually a great deal to look at there either. ( Currently there is only one active advert there.

I'm considering scrapping it completely as the admin time spent on it hardly seems worth it for the amount of use it gets.

That's great thanks Donald. Sorry for pestering, I didn't realise it had only been 7 days!

What would be the best way to find some kit? Is this thread the first point of call?

Thanks, have a great Xmas and new year.

The kit for the following people has been posted.  All has gone second class apart from those with an asterisk which went 1st class (because they weighed more than 1kg)

Challenge Cheggars
Dubai Dave*
flower power
Sgt Lard
Soap McTavish*

The remaining kit will be posted in batches over the forthcoming week as I have over 80 packets to post and don't want to monopolise the PO queue doing it in one go
