Have found the perfect mini multi-coloured pom poms for my spare room curtain
That's because the company who supply them, EdQuip in Arkleh, charge a standard €7.50 for delivery. That, by the by, is what An Post would charge for parcels up to 1.5 metres long and up to 2kg in weight. When I emailed to explain that I'm only looking to purchase one packet of these (not very heavy, not very big) and could they give me a better price on delivery, I got no response.
So I've just put in a call to EdQuip, explained the situation, and the very nice lady I spoke to told me that they could waive the delivery charge - deadly! - if I was ordering goods worth more than €50.
It'd almost be cheaper for me to drive to Arkleh, stop somewhere nice for lunch along the way, and feckin' buy the things in person.
