Bricklink Seller Review - jonadi

Sometimes you really need parts.  And sometimes the parts you really need are in such low quantities that you might have to look for a store that might be worthwhile.  So what's worthwhile mean?  Good terms?  Cheap shipping?  Other items available?  Feedback profile?  What was important to me?

Order Details
Why this store: Needed 12 dark red round 2x2 bricks.  It was either here or the Czech Republic.
Packaging: Each batch in its own half size baggie, placed in a small box, topped with crumpled newspaper padding
Part condition: Very good.
Communication: None
Feedback left: Positive
Odd telltale signs: The padding was from a German advert for TVs.  Very cool to look over.
Issues: None

Recommendation:
jonadi promises to ship orders within 5 days.  To me, this is a long long time.  But at least it's stated up front.  The shipping time actually ended up a bit longer.  They marked the order shipped on the 11th (5 days) but the postmark says the 14th.  This was over a weekend, not sure what caused the extra delay.  They also don't offer the typical 3,45 German shipping charge for non-insured airmail.  Between the length of time and the extra price I would normally skip this store.  But of the only three stores that had enough of the part I needed, this was the best option.  I probably won't shop here again for any old purchase but I appreciate that the parts I needed were not insurmountable to get.
