Greg & Jennifer (Klamath Falls, OR ... Scruffy Varmint) provided the Oregon State Flag that was behind Ten Forward, in the bay, when I picked up July 3, 2014

SWEET!

It's the address it is going to. I can't buy stuff on Amazon.com for shipment to Canada either.

Yeah, its not like it's shipping internationally-- its that the buyer is international. Thanks, I'll try amazon.ca.

Turns out it's because of the currency conversion. The seller is Canadian and the shipping address is Canadian. But, you have to use the Canadian Amazon site. Anyway, Utah flag is on the way.

I'm sure Amazon has the ability to do currency conversion.
Actually, it's not just the shipping address. Tried to buy some glasses from Williams Sonoma U.S. and have them shipped to a U.S. drop box, but because the credit card used was a Canadian account, couldn't complete the transaction. Would have to go to William Sonoma Canada.
Same thing with cameras. Buy a Nikon or Canon in the U.S. and if it needs repair, you have to ship it back to the U.S. Doesn't matter if it is still under warranty or ten years old. Has to go to U.S.
Not sure that you could buy from Amazon.ca and have it shipped to U.S.
Canadians are constantly complaining that they could buy a new Nissan in the U.S. for thousands less than the same car here, but the U.S. dealer won't sell it to them.
Never heard a reasonable explanation.

Yeah, they do currency conversion. The Canadian site even asked if I wanted to pay in USD or CAD. It's like the Canadian site could do the conversion but the US site rejected it.

The U.S. site just isn't allowed to ship to Canada and undercut the Canadian arm of Amazon. I'm sure the reverse is also true.

The irony here is that BC Novelties is located in Arizona, someone posted? See post#70

It looks like my timing was off! Yesterday morning - before I saw your post - I ordered a Utah flag to deliver in person when we pick up our 17B in September. No problem, however. I'll find another use for it, or maybe Reace can hang the two flags back-to-back so they can be viewed from either side (I think these inexpensive flags are screen-printed on only one side)

No problem Dave! I'll mod the list to give you credit. After all, I don't live in Utah.

Ontario is already proudly hanging on the wall at ETI. See post #7.

We are proud to be the first Iowans on the map, and will bring an Iowa flag when we pick up our 5.0 TA on Sept. 25th.

Updated list as of today. Only 16 flags remain unrepresented, at least according to the owners map.

According to Amazon.ca our NM and US flags were delivered Thursday 8/21 even though they were orignally scheduled for next week. If that is the norm then Tammy may have herself quite a basket load of flags to hang!!

I wonder if anyone at BC Novelties is scratching their head over suddenly having a raft of orders from all over the place all going to ETI
