Bricklink Seller Review - SuperGlide Bricks

Do you remember your first time?  I do.  It was when I made an order from Italy.  I am Italian by descent.  However I have shied away from ordering from the motherland due to the stories I have heard about the postal service.  Sending plastic toys to Italy?  Technically it's OK but the customs officials haven't heard that.  It used to be not allowed.  But like everything else I remember about visiting Italy, it's kind of laid back in an annoying way.  So with a very narrow wanted list and some fear and trembling, I stepped into Italian waters.

Recommendation:
Living up to its name, SuperGlide was quick and smooth.  It's like someone smeared chapstick on the underbelly of a snail.  It was that fast.  Nevermore shall I avoid the mother country.  In fact, this was one of my smoothest international orders ever.  Molto grazie!
