Big shame found in selling this old stereo.

I paid 50 dollars for the Console, and the three parts only sold for $9.99, $9.99, and $10.50.

Now I have a shipment to Russia.

Kinda funny after all is said and done. I guess that is the way business goes. . .

So here's a tip for anyone selling something similar on eBay: Make your listing a "Buy it Now" Listing for what you hope to get out of it.

No way this is going to stop me from diving into the mounds of refused stereo parts I have lying around, nor will it stop me from seeking out the old stereos about the country. I guess I really just like having them around, and documenting them in photos.

At least there is are three separate homes for the parts, and someone is surely smiling at the price they got.

I'll see you all around for the next project or business matter.

Ouch.
Good luck shipping to Russia. From experience, it's a difficult country to have an issue free delivery in. If the buyer gives you any tips you can often avoid the flags that get stuff stuck in customs over there.

Thanks for the tip, imix.

I shipped a CobraMatic changer to Japan with success, and a 1958 Admiral amplifier to Hawaii without any trouble to speak of. Russia isn't new territory either, I sent a 70's Kramer Bass to there last year.

Never had to ship any electronics though, any special tips you got on getting success????

Well, Actually the Bass wasn't Russia. So I have never dealt with a shipment this large to Russia before. . . Yikes!
