Thanks hellosunshine for your prompt reply but I would prefer to go to the traditional route as in one of the stores in the US, I am I'm afraid an ebay virgin! I suppose I am hoping against hope. I tend to be such a procrastinator and therefore come to everything too late!
Thanks to slinks I called Bal NY and managed to get my hands on an Ink Day! Needless to say I am thrilled and thanks again slinks for the tip! I'm having it overnighted (just cannot wait what with the holiday etc.)!!!
Will post pix when I have it in my quivering hands!
