Tchibo are a German company, so it figures you'd be more likely to find one on Gm ebay. Can you email the seller to explain your situation, and ask if she'd be willing to change the terms of the listing to allow UK buyers to bid?

I've just done similar for one of my listings for a buyer in Australia -- it's not technically difficult.

I'd advise the same. Email the seller.

Alternatively, there are some Mumsnetters in Germany - you may need to do a shout out for them.

Google Bablefish - type in what you want to say and it will translate it into German. It's not brilliant, but they will get the gist.

Most Germans will speak basic English (or non-basic, often).

Otherwise check out the Germany thread on Living Overseas and ask one of the lovely ladies to bid for you and post it to you.

Or ask a Gm MNer to compose an email for you.

The downside of emailing in Gm is that they are likely to reply in the same. Try English first, I think.

Hi, I have one of these comforters that I am selling on ebay at the moment if you have not managed to find one.
Best wishes
