Jumping on board on this thread. I am looking for the Inaugural Spice Tree Limited Edition box if anyone happens to have one.

Thanks, but 40 €, even with shipping costs, is bullshit

To be fair to the seller, 40€ was probably just a starting point (and a pure guess at that, which at 10% the current WB value for the bottle itself it's not a completely delusional guess), BUT it's the buyer who dictates the value.  The seller can post a price at whatever they like but if no one is willing to pay that then it's not worth that.

In other words, you would do well to make a counter-offer.  They might take less.

(in a barter system I personally think it should be the buyer who makes the first offer)

 It depends what you want the box for and while  stf92 you say 40 euro is bullshit, it depends where you are posting from?

From the UK, if I post somewhere like  Finland it can cost me between 35-40 euro regardless of weight or size for a small parcel.

Is 40 euro so bad, my guess is you are looking to sell them on  so spending 40 euro now may put 100 euro on the price you sell. Its all relative, in the scheme of things you will be recouping your outlay by adding value to the bottles and probably a good bit more/

If you are going to drink them why bother with the box anyway?

I am in France. Shipping costs for a bottle from Sweden for France with insurance are 26€. So for an empty box with no insurance 10 €? 15?. I m okay to pay  or swap with samples for a box, but not  pay 25 or 30€.

I bought this bottle on WA last month, not to sell it but to drink it, and you're right I don't absolutely need the box, especially by paying so much.
