Bricklink Seller Review - Bruno's Brick Depot

Well it's about time.  After last week's purchase from DK Bricks for the 2x2 round trans-clear plates, I just had to have the matching tiles.  I'd been eying them from two different sellers for close to a year.  I went into one of the stores and added a few to my cart.  I wanted to make the purchase worthwhile so I added a few more things.  Before I knew it I found myself with my biggest order ever by far and a ton of parts for my current (as of this writing) commission.

Recommendation
Absolutely.  Germany is becoming one of my favorite countries to order from due to the reasonable shipping and selection of parts.  Must be a German thing.  This seller is very professional but also friendly in their communications.  They sent me a full on invoice that included all sorts of legal information.  Definitely a German thing.  When I asked for a tracking number I had it within hours.  For a seller with such volume (dozens of orders daily?) I am very impressed by their service and communication.  Sehr gut und danke schön!
