Both Amazon US and Amazon Italy are offerring the wonderful set Medieval Market Village for sale at the moment.
While Amazon.com has the highly detailed and sought after set for $89.99 (a 10% discount), Amazon.it is offerring the same set for €79.93 (a saving of 20%).
The great thing for Lego fans outside of Europe and the US is that BOTHAmazon Italy AND Amazon US ship this set overseas!
Amazon.it has a low quantity limit so you can only order two of the set while Amazon US offers you the opportunity to ship 5 of the sets.
Amazon US worked out slightly cheaper for me ordering two sets. Their total including shipping was cheaper than retail in Australia by at least $50 per set. However by shipping through Amazon.it I was able to get express shipping (2-6 days) compared to Expedited shipping with Amazon US (8-16 days) for an extra $5 per set. If quality of the box is important you are better going with a fast option – the more time in transit, the more things can get damaged.
Then again you have to weigh up the opportunity to get 5 of these sets through Amazon.com…
I’m sure I’ll still be thinking about as the sale ends!
