I was just curious as to how long others here in the States tend to wait for some of your international purchases and trades to arrive in the mail?

I prefer to stick to the States myself, but lately I've been ordering a few things off of ebay that have been coming from mostly England, and the delivery times have varied a bit but usually not more than a week or so, except for one from Australia that never arrived at all. Currently I'm waiting on a purchase (only a single metal miniature) from England that still hasn't arrived after 2 weeks, but I'm hesitant to contact the seller yet since I know that international mail can supposedly take longer.

So what's your experience with international mail, particularly from the UK? And when do you start to worry?

From Austria (that would be central Europe) my experience is that shipping to the USA usually needs 10-14 days. However, I had cases that needed 6 Weeks to arrive for whatever unknown reason. So I wouldn't worry yet.

i would say about 2 weeks. once passed, there is nothing wrong w/ sending a short email just asking perhaps when the item was shipped out.
