    Default What's up with Miniatures by Eric?

    On June 9, I ordered a couple sets of N scale firecracker antennas from Miniatures by Eric. Paid via PayPal.

    This morning, I emailed him asking for a status update. It's been a couple weeks, thought I'd ask.

    I've not heard a thing. And if the items have been shipped already, he's not let me know. Snail-mail from Canada to Washington is not that slow, unless Canada Post is out on strike or something.

    Any insights? If anyone knows him, could you tap him on the shoulder? Thanks.

    Not unless he's busy with the two upcoming shows? The one in Chicago and or getting ready for the Salt Lake City show?
    The last time I dealt with him/them, my order was placed and shipped well within two weeks.

    Well im a Canadian living in Canada , using Canada post all the time . I buy and ship International quite often . I also buy and ship Domestically quite often .
    NEVER have i had a problem with Canada Post . Never has anyone shipping to me from all over the world .

    Let me clear something up ...... i was making a joke to Paul , nothing more .

    I dont know what your experience is with Canada Post , i can only tell you they never ever lose my bills in the mail , i get them quite regular ....... another joke

    So i very much disagree with your opinion of Canada Post

    That could be, Allen, but honestly, how hard is it to send a brief reply to at least acknowledge the question? Unless he's out of commission due to illness or something worse, of course.

    Since the request has been resolved, and some of the posts are at least borderline on the rules, I am going to lock this thread.
