Unashamed bump Grin

Bimblepops · 29/09/2013 20:44

I'm off to NY in four weeks, is that any good to you?

Could probably get a friend in the US to buy it and then I can maybe bring it back or post it back when I'm there...

PurplePillow · 29/09/2013 21:01

That's a fantastic offer Bimplepops Grin can I let you know just incase we can get one a wee bit sooner? I really don't mean to sound ungrateful and I'm not I'm actually really touched that you would do that for me Grin

Would you be allowed to bring it back with you? Don't want to make your trip harder Grin

TrinityRhino · 29/09/2013 21:11

oooh Bimplepops (cool name) that is such a kind offer Smile

Bumping for ya's Smile

I'd be happy to order it for you, have it sent to my PO Box in the States (I live very close to the US border) and post it off for you.
I'm trustworthy - you can check with Chaos :)

laraeo · 30/09/2013 01:19

I'm in the US, northern Virginia, and would be able to order one, no problem. Just let me know. Smile

Jacksmania · 30/09/2013 01:30

I think they went to sleep. :)
Well, two offers to help will make a nice surprise tomorrow morning Flowers.

laraeo · 30/09/2013 01:47

I do believe you're right! We're busy watching the Patriots and Falcons game. Go Pats!

SconeRhymesWithGone · 30/09/2013 01:55

I can be back-up if needed. I live in Florida. I would be happy to help.

MooseBeTimeForSnow · 30/09/2013 02:34

I can vouch for jacksmania. I'd have volunteered my services. I hope you can get this sorted :)

Just back in from school run and wowGrin

So many kind offers Grin

Can you pm me your name and addresses so I know where to post it to please and we can sort it out via that
Again thank you all

PurplePillow · 30/09/2013 19:51

Hey guys, I got your pm's thank you

I would be happy for any of you to help me but what would be easiest for you as in who is closest to a burlingtons coat factory?

Also would it be easier for me to buy it and get it delivered to you and you post onto me or you buy and post and i transfer money via paypal?

thanks Smile

SconeRhymesWithGone · 30/09/2013 20:36

Purple, I am very close to a store; I just called them and they have two in stock. I am sending you another PM.

wibblyjelly · 30/09/2013 20:42

laraeo · 30/09/2013 22:17

It sounds like Minnie is taken care of / if not I'm 10 minutes from Burlington Coat Factory.


PurplePillow · 30/09/2013 22:22

Hi laraeo, yes thank you all for your kind offers of help.

Sconerhymeswithgone has been wonderful enough to get "Minnie" for me but i cannot say thank you enough for all your lovely offers of help Grin
