Decluttering: mostly free BPAL 
12th-Jan-2014 05:45 pm
prohibition sucks
Okay so! This probably sounds a bit sketch, but I have too much BPAL, I have to declutter, and my options at this point are giving it away or throwing it away. So I thought, before I throw it away, I offer it to you ladies for the cost of me mailing it to you (though if you want to toss in some additional money, that would be very cool of you). Pretty much the only thing I'd be interested in swapping for now is Yvaine and I have no hope of getting even an imp of that, so eh, let's let these babies go.

Postage will be a flat rate of $9, and I will pretty much be loading up the packages with as many imps as I can stick in, because I have far too many of those.

Bottles
The Lady of Lake Ronkonkoma
Ded Moroz
Alice
Halloween: San Francisco
Sibyl
Sea of Tranquility (1/2)
Ninon
Penthus
GeekGoth
Mag Mell
Eidolon
The Lincoln Tunnel Vortex
Sparkling Apple Cider
Kumari Kandam
Smoky Moon
Enchanted Wood Florist
Cleric v2
Ebisu Making Love
Old Man Ackerman's Instructional Toys
Tears, Idle Tears


Please help me declutter! Also if you know of anyone selling or wanting to swap Yvaine, please let me know.

Ooh, I'll bite! Maybe :)

Is Sparkling Apple Cider very champagne-ish? And Ebisu, is the oakmoss very strong?

To tell the truth, I don't know! I have a blocked nose, so I really couldn't say.
13th-Jan-2014 01:39 pm (UTC)
May I take Ebisu & SAC, I'll see how they go, if so :)
13th-Jan-2014 09:42 pm (UTC)
Not a problem! My paypal is nights.mistress[at]gmail and I hope they work for you! If not ... well, they're a good price ;)
15th-Jan-2014 12:02 pm (UTC)
Hey there! I need your postal address; can I ask you to send that onto me by PM?
17th-Jan-2014 12:28 am (UTC)
Sure thing! Sorry for the delayed reply :)
18th-Jan-2014 09:38 am (UTC)
No problem! That should be going out Monday.
20th-Jan-2014 09:45 am (UTC)
That was mailed today and it should be with you soon!
20th-Jan-2014 11:03 am (UTC)
Thank you so much <3
23rd-Jan-2014 11:22 am (UTC)
Thank you so much, got them today, and Ebisu is gorgeous!

Also ZOMG YOU GAVE ME AN IMP OF HELLION!!! <3 I'd never tried it till now! :D </p>

(If I ever see stray Yvaines, I'll let you know. She was a damn beauty, sigh!)

13th-Jan-2014 03:48 am (UTC)
It's about time I acquired myself some new smellies. May I take Alice, GeekGoth, Mag Mell and Enchanged Wood Florist please? Happy to throw some extra money your way as I feel a bit greedy asking for 4.
13th-Jan-2014 12:18 pm (UTC)
Certainly! My paypal address is nights.mistress[at]gmail and I can get those out to you this week.
13th-Jan-2014 09:05 pm (UTC)
Done and done, in the payment message I've put my address. Let me know if you need any further details.
14th-Jan-2014 11:33 am (UTC)
Excellent! I just realised that I don't have any envelopes, so I'll pick some up at work tomorrow and then mail your package out Thursday, if that's all right?
14th-Jan-2014 07:30 pm (UTC)
That's quite alright, I won't be able to check my PO Box next until early next week.
16th-Jan-2014 10:15 pm (UTC)
And that went out yesterday!
22nd-Jan-2014 06:50 am (UTC)
Just wanted to drop you a comment to say they've been gleefully received. Thank-you for the imp love too :)
13th-Jan-2014 07:24 am (UTC)
If they're still available, I'd like to dibs Sibyl and Ninon, please. (:
13th-Jan-2014 12:39 pm (UTC)
They definitely are! If you could send your paypal to nights.mistress[at]gmail I can get them off to you this week!
14th-Jan-2014 07:19 am (UTC)
Done!
14th-Jan-2014 11:33 am (UTC)
Excellent! I don't have any envelopes to hand, so I'll pick some up tomorrow and mail on Thursday, if that's all right? I'll check in when I mail out.
16th-Jan-2014 10:15 pm (UTC)
And those went out yesterday!
20th-Jan-2014 06:56 am (UTC)
Holy imp avalanche, Batman! *fans self*

Everything is safe and sound! Thank you so much!
20th-Jan-2014 09:46 am (UTC)
Not a problem! I'm glad it made it safely.
14th-Jan-2014 04:33 am (UTC)
Hi! Could I please have Cleric, Old Man Ackerman and Penthus if they are still available? Thanks so much!
14th-Jan-2014 11:31 am (UTC)
Sure! My paypal is nights.mistress[at]gmail and I should have those out to you this week!
20th-Jan-2014 09:46 am (UTC)
This was mailed out to you today and hopefully it will be with you soon!
22nd-Jan-2014 09:14 am (UTC)
Got my goodies today- thank you SO much, so generous with the imps too! Can't wait to find some new loves XX :)
16th-Jan-2014 03:30 pm (UTC)
I love aquatics & citrus, so if they're still available, I'm interested in The Lady of Lake Ronkonkoma, Halloween: San Francisco, Eidolon, The Lincoln Tunnel Vortex and Tears, Idle Tears.

I'm happy to send you extra money as I feel a bit greedy asking for five!

One question though, do I send US or AU dollars?
16th-Jan-2014 10:15 pm (UTC)
I'm honestly easy with either, though US dollars is preferred! my paypal is nights.mistress[at]gmail and I can get that out Monday!
17th-Jan-2014 09:20 pm (UTC)
OK, funds sent yesterday.

BTW, someone is selling an imp lot on ebay with a half decant of Yvaine, but it's not clear if they'll ship outside the US.

Also, the Lab has a page where you can join their waitlist to buy it if it becomes available again:

Hope this helps! Good luck in your search.
18th-Jan-2014 09:37 am (UTC)
I did not know that the Lab had done that! I'm so doomed, just watch me spend all this money on BPAL.

(Also gosh, thank you so much, I did not expect that much, wow)
20th-Jan-2014 09:47 am (UTC)
And this was mailed out to you today! Hopefully your new shinies will be with you soon!
23rd-Jan-2014 08:10 am (UTC)
This arrived yesterday!

Thank you so much!

I had given up hope of being able to get some Eidolon as it was discontinued almost 10 years ago. It's not the dream verbena scent I had hoped it would be, but it's still magnificent in an ecclesiastical incense kind-of way.

Thank you kindly for the frimps. I'm blown away! The package is so fragrant I could smell it as I went to pick up the package!

I got into BPAL about 10 years ago (has it really been that long!) around the time the Springtime in Arkham LEs went away. I've been really bummed the aquatic ones have never made it to the GC, so I was thrilled that you sent me some Kingsport. Thank you!

BTW, since Yvaine is so sought after, I strongly suggest you:

a) put out an ISO/Wanted post on the forum and on bpalmarketplace. That way, if someone is thinking about selling it and comes across your post, they might sell it straight to you instead of going to the trouble of posting a For Sale page.
b) put a saved search for Yvaine on ebay for multiple countries. BPAL tends not to sell as well outside of the US, so sometimes you can get a real bargain if the seller is in the UK, Europe, Canada etc.
c) search the For Sale section of the forum (if you don't already)

BTW, thank you for spreading the BPAL love. You've encouraged me to pay it forward, especially as it's so hard for us Aussies to try some of these lovelies.
15th-Jun-2014 11:34 am (UTC)
I'll take the rest of the list! :) Just getting into bpal, so I'm at the 'trying things out' stage and would love to get hold of some imps.

Paypal okay with you?
