A week of so back I posted a message to the list about the Australian Scout
baseball caps. After receiving enquiries from a couple of list members about
ordering the caps, I sent an email to the local "Snowgum" store (Australian
scout shops trade under the name Snowgum). Below is the reply I just
received. You'll have to work out your own exchange rates <g>

The addition of the postage cost possibly makes them a little expensive.
However, it has occurred to me that using the resources we have through this
list we could make some arrangement to send them as a bulk order to a single
U.S. address and then forward them at cheaper domestic rates from there.
I've seen the shirts and they are really good looking - not exactly my
style, but the type of thing the kids would love. BTW, for providing this
information I charge a 1 CSP commission on each cap order ;-)
