You get out your dictionary and work with that. OR you find an e-mail link and try to ask.....

If I can do it in Portuguese.... which I did once....

PS just looked. Click on compra and try and follow prompts that look right..... It's cheap, too ! €18.50 ! Unless you want the jumbo, at €38.90.

Do you think it would be as much fun as getting a few copies of The Lasenic from a friendly nieghbourhood seller in... hmmm... where was that we got ours from?

But ~ I'd love a "fair chance" at getting this deck too!

 €18.50 sounds very good...

Once upon a time, Adam, Cerulean, and myself were tracking down the then new Tarot de las Hadas... and I came across this deck on-line. It's lingered on my wish list ever since, and yet I could not navigate the web-site. I feel stumped.

WELL - I am going for one tomorrow  - I will have to do it slowly, in case I need the dictionary ! and I have no time just now. Assuming all goes well, I'll list exact steps ! (I got the Hadas somewhere in Spanish too; I forget where. Never saw this site before though. It looks - dangerous !)

OK - as far as I know I just ordered one. Ordering for Dummies lesson 1.

Go to tienda. (orange tab)

Click tarot (in the left hand column, near the bottom.) At this point for some reason I got a second tarot link so I clicked that too....

Scroll down to the deck.

Click compra.

Click confirmar compra.

Fill in the form (self explanatory:
name, address, city, code (UK users - put your postcode in below with the county and put 0000 in the box as it only recognises numerical) province/state (I put county, of course, with the postcode) phone and e-mail.

Pick postage (OW !!!!!)

Check tarjeta de credito (unless you have a euro bank account....)

Click confirmar.

Enter your credit card details - that really IS obvious.

If you are me, suffer the (English) VisaSecure page.

And I got a page saying I had ordered with the correct amount on, so I will keep you posted.

good luck !

Thanks for the help gregory.

I followed all the screens and it worked well until I got to the postage.  I decided that the cost of the deck was ok, but when I got to over 77 US dollars for postage, I decided I didn't really want the deck all THAT bad.

$77 ???????

WOW.

OK - fair enough. I didn't hit THAT much ! it came in at a sum making the whole thing sort of average for a deck rather than nice and cheap !

HELL - had I only thought I could have ordered two.... People - get together and see if the place does combined shipping.... I'll let you know how lovely it is ;)

Thanks Gregory! I think I ordered one now as well, with your Ordering for Dummies manual :ro.

I wanted this deck for a long time. Now I hope I actually did everything right :z

Well, darn it. It seems from the mail that I got, that the payment went wrong. Not sure if it was my mistake or theirs. But the payment is cancelled :cc.

Now I have to do it all again!!! :v

Do you also have a manual for super Dummies, Gregory???:f

I translated the e-mail (with Babel Fish; it came out great....!):

Por un error en la empresa hemos anulado el importe de su compra a tu banco. 


By an error in the company we have annulled the amount of its purchase to your bank.


Lo sentimos mucho. Disculpe las molestias.
We felt much. It excuses the annoyances.


Si deseas tener la baraja de tarot universal, deberás hacer la compra de nuevo, y te lo enviaremos enseguida.
If you wish to have the deck of universal tarot, you will have to make the purchase again, and we will send it immediately to you.


Gracias, Un saludo,
Meigaweb.



It was their fault and they are desolated. I (think I) have ordered again. They accidentally deleted my payment details, I think....

Ah, I got the same message from them. My payment is annulled. And yes, from the mail I do understand that I have to order again. Ok, so maybe it wasn't my fault. It sure was fun to ask for a guide for super Dummies though :gi.

 

Anyway, I am gonna try again. See if this time it will be processed properly etc.

COOL ~and I am impressed! So many questions, but maybe first,

Good point, Nicole. We should ask ~ what about the p+p in reality?

I could hitchhike to Portugal on 77 bucks and a tailwind...

I don't know about P&P - but mine arrived to day by courier. Which is safer than the mail, I have to say.

Ah.. I wish I also knew the artist. I really like the art. It is already one of my favorites.. somehow it resonates. If only we could find out more about it... anyone???

I know I know I know..... (I emailed meigaweb.)

The artist is a "famous Spanish sculptress" called Carmen Fraile; she is a personal friend of the company, as you might say, and did it about 10 years ago as a favour.

Her website is carmenfraile.com. They tell me you can get in touch and she will answer. She is VERY pretty.....:kt

But the links don't seem to work.....

ETA - oh - they do in the end; dial up strikes again.....

I get a couple working - I got a page of baby (as in very small, not infant !!) pix, for instance. Odd.....

Oh well - I didn't actually need to contact her :D
