Let's see....with no financial benefit for yourself.....you go through the
trouble of hunting down the manufacturer.  You collect diverse money from
throughout the Knowne World and put together a complicated order that has to
be shipped from out of the country.  You have to drive 3.5 hours to pick up
the whole thing (do you have a big truck?  Seems that it might be in some
really large containers).  You have to bring it back and sort it out, hoping
that they sent you "good" product, in styles that you ordered).  You then
have to repack some of it for reshipment to other parts of the country, and
lug multiple helms all over Ansteorra, to intersect with the local buyers...

And you are thanking US for our patience????
