Taito Stools and Benches - Winter 2018 Order

Post by rancor » November 8th, 2018, 12:46 pm

Ok, lets get started with the 43cm or 48cm Taito stool and 48cm Viewlix bench group buy. ;)

Please read all of the below before you order.

I will keep this order open until November 18th. I reserve the right to close it early if there gets to be more than I feel I can handle. This is a group buy for brand new 43cm or 48cm Taito stools as well as Taito 48cm benches. Pictures of each follow this wall of text. The stools will take a month to be manufactured. They should all be at my house by ~December 18th. I will then begin shipping as soon as possible in the order of who paid.

There's no need to MP me here on AO about anything - a few times each day I will update the list below with who has paid, and I will also update when the stools are received and when I ship.

IMPORTANT - When sending me money please include your username here on this forum, and MAKE SURE YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS IS CORRECT. I will be using your address in Paypal - NOT the one you MP me or send to me by email. It's too confusing to keep track of things if there are too many "special cases" - I want to be able to reference everything in one place.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stool Prices:

For UK / France / USA / Switzerland / Australia / Singapore the prices are:

2 stools - $250.00 USD

3 stools - $300.00 USD

4 stools - $500.00 USD

5 stools - $550.00 USD

6 stools - $600.00 USD

Bench Prices - BENCHES ARE SOLD OUT


I have been told by Taito that they only have 18 benches left, and no more will be manufactured. If we get to the ordering stage, and there are more orders than benches I will refund starting from the most recent payment - ie: last order in, first to be refunded.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The above prices includes surface shipping, and will come with a tracking number. Your item(s) will arrive 4-6 weeks after I ship, so we're looking at the stools arriving at your door 11 to 14 weeks after you make payment. You can track your shipment here:

Send the money to: Orders are CLOSED!
In the "notes", please remember to write your username and whether you're ordering benches or stools as well as what size stools you are ordering.

The stool pictured is different from the other thread. Does that mean these stools are NLA?

For those who have ordered before, could I ask how it works with the whole customs duty side?

Is everyone getting hit with extra duty to pay?

Also @rancor do you mark the value down?

Cheers :)

I'm a little confused by this as well. The pictures I was sent vs what I got are quite different. I'll ask today, and hopefully I'll have an answer soon.

I can mark it as anything you like. All shipments from me are marked as "gift", and no receipt is included. All shipping labels are hand-written. These things do make a difference. ;) If you have special instructions, please put them in the Paypal "notes" section. I will be going by these notes when I ship your items.

They're apparently all like the one I received. The first picture they sent me was a goof.

The ones with the foot rest (?) look dumb as heck. Unless you're four years old I fail to see the use for the bar.

So how does shipping to Germany work? I know there was someone in the fall thread who was German. But the conversation didn't really lead up to a conclusion.

I know you (rancor) can write anything on the label but is there any other complications or increased fee?

Because i'd like to order 2x 43cm Stools :3

Most people in Germany that order from me make two payments:

One payment will be quite a bit higher than the other, and they'll keep the cheaper one to use as "proof" that the value is low when the tax man comes for his share.
I can mark whatever you like on the value form.
I've sold many expensive items to people in Germany, and apparently this works.
