Trompo Star from Gerardo
« on: June 25, 2020, 12:20:17 AM »

I ordered from Gerardo half a dozen of his Trompo Star tops (one of each color). They were $3 each and shipping the package from Mexico is going to cost me a little over $30 or $5 each. If anybody in the US wants one, you can get it for $8 plus shipping. The shape is different than regular Mexican tops. Some call it the egg  :D

I would like one, are you saying you will sell one of yours or is there a link to order?

I would sell you at cost one of the ones I ordered. It made no sense for me to just pay shipping on a single top.
You can choose any color:



I will tell you when I receive them, sometime next week, and then you can pay me.

I increased the order to a dozen for just $7 more shipping from Mexico. So now the cost per top is about $6 plus shipping to you.
If Gerardo drops the package tomorrow, UPS claims delivery by Tuesday.

I would like one as well. I saw one online for $99, so this would be a great price.

I purchased 24 of these a month ago. Can't wait to get them. It's great to support a small top business and performers in these times. :D

Great! Yes, performers need our support in these dire times.

I would expect the post to take a month with the covid. I'm using my business UPS account so I have a great discount that almost matches the post and can get them fast.

Sure! I will now get 2 of each color, so just choose the one you want (I have no preference myself).
Gerardo sent the package yesterday and UPS says it's waiting for customs clearance.

I received the tops. The boxes came flat, so you will have to assemble them.
One of the reds is actually closer to a purple.





Shipping in the continental US is $8.30 by Priority Mail, for any number of tops (there are no savings using regular mail for this weight).
The tops are $6 each.
