Ooh so many ponies so clean so little time!

I think ... think... I am going to ship the ponies there to sell.

Does anyone have experience with this?

Recommendations about carry on vs shipping or horror stories?

(I might start a new thread.)

some sellers ship there stock down but then it costs you more money that way, plus you will have to ship them back or find room for them in the luggage

I usually stuff as many as I can into the suitcases, but I think I have too much this year to get by with just that.

I'm going to compare costs of shipping an extra box vs. checking another bag with the airline.

In addition to suitcases, you can also use plastic storage totes as checked baggage. I’ve flown with sale items in plastic totes with no issues. I duct taped them really well, and put my contact info on the inside & outside of the tote in case in missed the flight.

Foxtale, if you know anyone else in your area who is going to the fair and is someone you trust, you may be able to get them to take an extra tub/suitcase of ponies if they have the allowance for two checked bags but are only using one.

I imagine that the bonus of taking a plastic tub is that if someone buys more ponies than they have space for, you may be able to sell them your empty tub so you don't even have to bother with bringing it back.

84 days to go.

I've been cleaning ponies like mad. I need to start sorting accessories too. So many ponies, so little time.

If you are shipping/ checking baggage extra ponies, I second KitKat's idea of securing the extra address label inside the container. Shipping labels CAN and DO come off in transit and this may be the only way your package makes it home again. (I worked in a mail room and saw this more often than you'd think).

Yeah, I have no idea whether I'll be able to get my custom for the contest done in time or not. I need to get moving on that. So much sculpting...

70 days to go.

I wish the Fair was now so we could go to Orlando and get out of winter here! But instead...63 days (who knows how long until spring!)
