I thought it was too good to be true and it was! I went for it, expecting a message about when it would arrive...only to find that she had made a mistake and had meant to list for collection only but had listed instead for free p&p! I am getting a refund and she will relist - if you live near Dumfries and Galloway...

A contract is a contract. I ordered a heavyweight biology book (in level as well as weight) and won it for about £3 and £1.50P+P. I noticed it cost the poor chap the best part of a tenner to send it but he honoured the deal without even complaining.

You can ship very cheap now, £10 or £20. She should try parcel2go or someone like that.

Nah, not worth the fight - as she said the postage would be prohibitive - and having sold on Ebay I know it isn't profit on a plate. An honest mistake is an honest mistake...

The detail I know are at the top, as my further details swopped with the 'oops, I have made a mistake' email. They were not containing colonies as far as I know though.
