I have the following for sale -- priced in dollars and pounds. Shipping not included in prices below, and for overseas I'm open to suggestions as to which carrier to use. I've gotten good pictures with all of these but must make room, and they see the least use from me. Everything is negotiable. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org .
Olympus XA with Flash. Exposure needle in window is slow to respond but shutter is correct.
40.00 USD or £ 25.00
Petri 7 with original cardboard box. 1-second and 1/2-second exposures are off, otherwise okay.
10.00 USD or £ 6.00
Yashica GSN. Only thing is a little focus ring stiffness for closer than 3 ft.
NOT FOR SALE
40.00 USD or £ 25.00
Wide-Angle & Telephoto Kit for Yashica GSN. Includes special viewfinder. 20.00 USD or £ 12.00
Michael, I have always liked cameras with selenium meters - no worries about batteries. The Petri would interest me at that price as long as shipping isn't too unreasonable. I know little about which company best to use in terms of safety/speed/cost. What I do know is that some sellers charge a standard $40 or so, while other seem able to send it postage paid (I have just ordered some Nintendo 3DS accessories for my grandson £7.50 postage paid). Some are either charging too much or they are using the wrong carriers. I shall have a look to see if I can find a sensibly priced carrier. Cheers. Dave.
Addendum: postage would seem to be about £21 at the cheapest. At that price what was a fair bargain becomes, unfortunately, not so good - so, unless you know of a cheaper carrier I'l have to opt out.

I'll check the Fed Ex and UPS rates here, also our P.O. overseas. If I can come up with something better, will let you know. Also I should mention the selenium meter is responsive but you need to set it for instance at 400 for 200 ISO film.
Michael, thanks. Maybe it will prove to be similar to aircraft companies like Easyjet (at least a few years back). If say flying from Liverpool to Amsterdam and back it was cheaper to book the flights from the Dutch site. I think the difference was more than could be accounted for by a change in previously set exchange rates.
