Non smoking home. Will email pictures if you like.

Will send priority mail if requested. Would suggest media mail but it is slow, as priority has gotten expensive in last few months, but will ship the method you request since you are paying. Will give you shipping price when I find out.

US only, as shipping out of country is outrageous postage wise.

Make sure and give me your address and your TMP alias as well in case of e-mail issues.

Can use PayPal. Otherwise will discuss.

Contact me here, via my TMP email, or email address at bottom.
