    Default Anyone want to share shipping from Vaja cases?

    Vaja seems to have a number of cases in stock that they can ship immediately. I'm thinking of ordering one, but seeing how expensive shipping is, was wondering if anyone was interested in sharing the shipping cost. Let me know by the end of the day. I'll get it shipped to the hotel that I'm staying in and can either pass it onto you or mail it through express pack or something.

    Try google

    FYI, I bought a Vaja Case (and reviewed it on here) in August last year for my iPhone 3G. Was damn expensive but still going strong. I was dubious at the start as to its strength, but it's proven to be worth the cash (and I have a case that i've not seen anyone else with, which means it's easy to pick apart from the others on the table)

    i'd be interested but only if its for one of the special order cases that takes slightly longer. The ones in stock don't look like anything i want.

    I bought a Vaja leather case for my Sony Ericsson P800 back in the day. It was a custom colour scheme, with "Bogus Jimmy" laser engraved on the back.

    It cost $200 shipped. It was awesome.

    Photo (about a year worth of wear and tear on it):


    PS. The P800 was awesome too. 6 years ago it was ahead of its time.

    Seems like they're sold out. Might just order a custom made one. I'll probably place an order tomorrow. If anyone is keen on sharing the shipping cost let me know. I think i'll get it shipped to Melbourne, but I may also be traveling to Sydney so I can hand it to you in person. Let me know if you're interested.

    It's worth the money. Got a nice slimline messenger bag for my MBA. Cost me a bundle, but boy it's beautiful

    Tempting, I have been debating getting on of these for my iPhone but I just don't think I can afford the $100 for a case right now...

    Curse you for showing me these cases - they're so expensive... but they're perfect, and I've just ordered one (and one for the wife too).

    Seriously, I spent a bundle on my last phone cases - multiple because they all broke or were to bulky or something or other. I ended up using no case, and now my phone is a sight to behold (you can recognise it as a phone, but that's about it!). These ones look to be just right for my needs, so hopefully my new iPhone will still be pristine in a year or two. That's worth the dollars in my book.

    BTW, the 'spoilme' code worked fine, 10% discount (ta!). Shipping US$29.

    Anybody interested in sharing postage again? I'm thinking of ordering a Vaja case as well. I'm located in Brisbane though. Anybody?
