Problems with smarties exchange thread?

I don't know if it is just me, but I haven't been able to see the last few posts on the smarties thread.

I posted a message about how I had about 3/4 of a case of smarties left. But I can't see the post. And there have been a couple more posts since then, and I can't see those either, even after reloading the page several times.

Anyway, I have the better part of a case left, and I would be willing to provide a couple boxes to anyone on the list who has not been paired up if they really wanted some to celebrate our little Nestle victory.

I just checked and found these posts on that thread. Maybe it is your computer (if anyone else is having this problem, posts not showing, let me know).

For those new to the boards check the bottom of each page to see if there are more pages on that thread. You can just click on the number of the page you want to view to go to it.

Here is the text from thread

But today I bought a case of smarties at Costco. So I have about 3/4 of a case left. If you have any other people on your list who are desperate for a couple packs of smarties to celebrate our smarties "victory", I would be happy to send some out on a one-time deal. Amy

Can you deal with two people? That would clean up the list. A lot of the time I believe the Smarties thing has been run as a "one off", that you would only do this once and that was it. I think I did have to explain the different ways the whole thing could work a couple of pages back.

No one has heard from Julie Roberts and she is an adult, so it would be M's Mom and the other person left on the list.

Please let me know if you feel if you could handle two people and then I will contact both of them on your behalf, explaining that this is a one-off and seeing if they were looking for anything more than that. I honestly believe that most people who did receive Smarties received them on a one-off basis.

There have been a few people that developed relationships, but I do think they were not the norm.

Anyway, thank-you SO much. Please let me know. It would be really nice to get things cleared up before we get a new rush in here (only because I'm telling ALL American friends to get signed up in here!).

Many thanks and best wishes!

Thanks for orchestrating things, we'll see what we can work out!! Head Cook

I'm interested in buying a large quantity. Please let me know how to go about it.

Okay, I am finally seeing the posts in the smarties thread again.

Ryan's mom, how many did you want?

I don't know since I'm not familiar with Smarties. Are they big packs or small packs. How many are in a box or case? Could you please advise. I guess I didn't use the right thread either. Perhaps I should have put this on the Canadian/American Smarty exchange thread. Please let me know.

I posted this info in the smarties thread, but I will post it here too.

One box is about 2 oz. I guess that is about standard candy bar size. There are 48 boxes in a case. I got a case at Costco in Canada for about $24 CDN. That is about $16 US.

I'm interested in buying what's left, but someone may have been interested before me. I don't want to step on someone else's toes, and Cindy Spowart Cook seems to handling the matches. I didn't officially sign up yet, so I'm sure someone else before me might want your supply. Perhaps I better sign up now.
