I got a very small tea strainer in a very large box, through Amazon. It’s a pretty tea strainer, though; one of those English designs that sit on your cup to catch the leaves as you pour. A gift for a friend who is a bit of an Anglophile.

I want one of those.

Sil select said

link? :) curious to see

Here’s a not-very-good photo from Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/adevzx5
The strainer is fine wire mesh and is shown sitting in its fitted drip bowl. Looks to be quite nicely made — no rough edges or crappy solder joints. Color is shiny silver, darker than shown.

I want that! Exactly like that. How much was it? I have a whole dollar in credits at amazon lol

Sil select said

Swapping is one of my favourite parts of Steepster.

Ditto, love swapping…just wish half of you didn’t live in Canada with the ridiculous shipping rates I have to pay to send there.

Artp said

yeah, after my first swap to tattooed I have to turn down canadians most of the time- $7 is way too much to be spending for swaps :/

It’s gotta be since they implemented the new shipping things. It used to be $4 at most. It use to cost me double to ship in Canada than to ship to the US.
When shipping use bigger envelopes so they are thin & can be sent regular mail.

Artp said

Would you still use bubble mailers?

Yup I still use a bubble mailer & they check to see if it fits through a plastic slot.

Artp said

Cool! I’ll try when I send your harney stuff. Thanks!

Swapping is awesome! I’m not letting myself do any more swaps till I’ve tried everything I got in the mail…I’m afraid I won’t ever get through it all! Its hard to have the willpower though :)
