Looking to buy Ing stones/bowls


#21

@XRMonica, could you please be a little bit more verbose? :wink:

  • Pls Define “set” — is it the stones/bowls only or stones + clock?

  • If the former, what would be the price for a clock?

  • Does the mentioned “£35” include shipping?

  • If not, what would the shipping cost (to Germany) be?

  • Also, how would we proceed to our both safety (as you’re still a stranger here)?
    Would it be okay to send you 50% via PayPal before and the remaining 50% after receiving the parcel?

Thanks in advance, Tom

Hi,
£35 is for the stones and bowels.
No idea regarding the shipping cost.

You are right that the payment is a problem. Do you have any friend in London? If you do, that probably can help with this situation.

The clock is £25 each.

Thanks

Sorry, but I don’t have any friends in London. (As it turns out, all of my British friends live in Norway!) If we can’t come up with a payment mechanism that works for you, we could also just trade! Is there anything from the Northwestern United States that you’d like that’s worth roughly £35 (about $50)?

I will also barter with hand-knit goods :smile: It’s got to be getting cold in London this time of year. A lovely brioche scarf (Google it) to keep you cozy?

Or money. Money works, too. :smile:

we used them here in the US for many years in tournaments. they are pretty hideous and the magical counting function in the bowls doesn’t work that well. glass sets used to be pretty cheap, and you can use food containers for bowls. they do chip if abused, but you just throw them away if they get too blanged up.

the thing about the ing sets is that you can’t lose a stone for the counting to work…if is just a pile of glass, then you just try to make sure everyone has enough.

How did you get them? Not looking to purchase, just curious.
@yuri They aren’t the worse stones though. Most people I know just use them like any other stones and neglect the ING counting.

A friendly person offered to gift me a set of Ing stones, so I’m outta here, thank you.
