If shipping seems high, well, not only can I not control the postal fees, this is a rather large, heavy item. The lowest shipping rate is PARCEL at $15.00--Of course, I attempted to fit it into a FLAT RATE PRIORITY box, but it does not fit into any FLAT RATE box. Even if it did, FLAT RATE LARGE PRIORITY is $15.00. Please feel free to ask ???'s prior to bidding; my response time is usually fast.
