I purchased a Speedy from UKDesigner Items and the process is taking so long -- I purchased it (Ebay) on Thursday 3/30. This is a MyPoupette seller so at least I feel comfortable with authenticity. But this seller doesn't take Paypal, so I had to go to the bank and order an International Money Order (surprise: this cost $25!). Had to wait a couple of days for this to come through. Mailed the IMO on April 4. Got a response that it was received a week later on April 11. But, they waited a over a full week for the funds to clear! (even though it was a MO and not a personal check) So, the bag was dispatched on April 19. It could be two weeks or more til I get it -- and then I will need to pay customs! I'm sure all will be well when it finally gets here -- may-be by Mothers Day with a little luck? But I would advise against buying abroad, especially for something like a Speedy which are easy to find in the US.
