    Wow, I had no idea shipping price can vary so much.
    Of course nearly every uke I've shipped has gone all the way from MN to CA (Cali must like their ukes!).
    I've tried to include shipping in the purchase price, but it's suddenly making sense to me why people say "plus shipping"...

    I've sold lots of small items on eBay, and I always include the shipping cost to CA. With a small box, the difference between shipping to NY or CA isn't much, but even a small ukulele requires a large box. Fortunately, I save most of the boxes I receive when I buy a uke, so I just have to go to the garage and find one the right size. After eBay and PayPal take their cut, I don't want to lose even more to the USPS. I saw many people here including shipping in the price, but I won't do that any more.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    This is the problem with buying locally. No boxes!!!!

    Right, and boxes big enough for a uke are not easy to find. When I'm through selling, maybe I'll offer my boxes for the cost of postage. : )
