Hey folks,

I made an Etsy sale. The person is literally the entire width of the USA away from me. UPS wanted roughly $400. No go.
I used Greyhound Bus, much cheaper but takes longer. I packed it really well, including some homemade crating made from cardboard, inside a 32" cube box.

Let you all know how it goes when it arrives. The buyer picks it up from their closest terminal, in this case a quick 15minute drive.

Wow. That's a first. Never heard of using Greyhound before. Hmmmmmm.......

Did you know Amazon started their own cargo airline ? They are testing the methods and may expand it.

Yep, treated the wood with oil enamel.
Didn't know about amazon. When I went to select for the custkmer that I used GH a whole bunch of other shipping services popped up that I didn't know about.
