Bricklink Seller Review - Quarky Bricks LLC

What's your favorite flavor, strange or charm? Does your strange go up or your charm go down? That might make your quarks quirky. I don't necessarily like the fact that the color of quarky bricks can be arbitrary. Although it would make for a dynamic build, especially with a color like anti-green. There's some beauty in that truth.

Recommendation
Invoicing happened in less than 30 minutes. That tells me that the seller is like me, has learned to accurately estimate based on the weights of his packing materials. While he does have his store scale turned off, he was quick to reply when I asked what my total order weight was. He told me about 10.3oz. But like other sellers, he charges retail rates and then makes profit from the postage by purchasing it online. Still not pleased with that practice. Might as well add a 50c packing charge and be more upfront about it.  When I received it it came in at 9.5oz. At least the label said 11oz and I wasn't taken for another 20-ish cents. Maybe the ol' estimator is off a bit. All in all a good store with some room for better shipping efficiency.
