Bricklink Seller Review - BargainBricks4All

Biggest.... order... evar.  My orders usually average around the $20 mark, sometimes as high as $30ish.  But that's when I'm spending my own money.  When someone else gives me lots of digits and says "build this", it's easier to spend more money.  So I've been enjoying that and reproducing a
1/132 scale replica of an old 1892 building.  And wouldn't you know for all the parts they make, TLG is still lacking in so many dark red ones.  At least some sellers stock quite a few.

Order Details
Why this store: Had a lot of parts for a commission I was working on
Packaging: Large lots in their own ziploc bags, several smaller lots tossed together into one bag including some trans pieces.  All in a padded priority mailer.  Then packed inside another poly mailer... then packed inside a third poly mailer.  Why the padded marked one wasn't on the outside I don't know.
Part condition: Very good.
Communication: Responsive
Feedback left: Positive
Odd telltale signs:
Issues: None

Recommendation:
The shipping prices are vague for 13oz and over orders but the proprietor was good about responding to emails.  His quote is what he charged me.  However looking back, I have to wonder why the flat rate padded priority mailer was INSIDE the other mailers.  Had he made this the main mailer, shipping charges would have dropped by over $2.50.  I alerted the seller to this benefit and hopefully he will take advantage of this on future orders.
