In response to the interest we've had from international bidders on the first two lots up for grabs in the eBay auctions, we contacted eBay customer service to find out if we could change these first two lots to allow international bidders and give costs for international shipping.
Unfortunately, because we already had bids on our auctions (and they have both met the reserve, which totally ROCKS!) we can't go back and change the listings to allow international bidders and show international shipping options. We were told that we could end the auctions early and start them over in order to allow international bids, but we didn't feel that this was fair to the folks who have already and so generously placed their bids.
To our overseas friends who wanted to bid on these two lots, we are so, so sorry for any confusion and frustration surrounding your attempts to bid. All we can say is that we are still learning as we go, and we apologize for any confusion or frustration. We will be allowing international bidding and shipping on the remaining 8 lots from this first round of The Best Little Bead Box.
The remaining 8 lots are just as packed with goodies and beady treasures as these first two, so we hope this doesn't discourage our overseas friends from bidding on them!
The next two lots will go live at 9 p.m. PST, 12:00 a.m. midnight EST, on Wednesday, February 2. We'll have some photos of those two lots in the coming week, as well.
Thank you so much to everyone who has shown an interest on bidding on these lots! We couldn't have done this without you!
