I want a set of Discworld bookends for my Terry Pratchett collection. I'm particularly interested in Death, as I already have a gift set with the Librarian and Rincewind. I'm having trouble even finding the bookends online, and shipping directly from the UK would be pretty expensive, as they're heavy (naturally) and I'm in Florida. Where to look? How to get the best deal? Any help from the hive mind would be greatly appreciated!

So far, all I've found is this on ebay. And this one, with box. Good luck.

On closer look, it seems that the sellers will only ship within the UK; sorry, but maybe it'll be a starting place.

Nifty, I wasn't aware that these even existed.

In the short term, maybe you could always go with some elephant bookends, I mean, it's not what you are looking for, but they are strong enough to hold up the Disc, right?

Otherwise, maybe you could fine a UK Mefite who would be willing to ship it to you.

Ah, nevermind. I just saw that it's the expense of shipping overseas that is problematic, not that they don't deliver...

You *might* be able to find discounted shipping rates via an ebay seller - there are some that sell shipping at reduced rates and cover themselves by volume - check under 'transport' catagory - Here's one I used a few times: Ebay Seller - although there is nothing showing as 'for sale' at present, oddly.
