We had a survey done last week to see how much shipping our antiques back to Kentucky was going to cost.
We had inquired two years ago before I began buying and was unofficially quoted L800.00 for half a crate. We were estimating around $2000.00 for the 13 or so pieces we have and a few boxes of china and Polish pottery. So needless to say, when I opened the quote and saw L3382.00 ($7000.00) I was SLIGHTLY shocked.
What does this mean....it means I will be mailing the china and pottery and the antiques will be going into storage until one of our friends PCSes back to Washington DC next year.
