    I'm going to place an order with Northern Gecko for a bunch of cork bark and rounds and a few smaller items. I think I'll get over the free shipping threshold. If anyone else in or around Edmonton wants to add anything I can order it as well and arrange for pickup. Probably be making the order early next week.

    How much cork bark were you going to need? I have been shopping around and Josh's Frogs in the US has a 35lb box of assorted flats and rounds for $225 shipped, which would make it $6.42ish per pound.... seems like a hell of a deal, NE Gecko is $10ish per pound.

    I recently placed an order for a 20lbs box from jelinek and was terribly sorry that I did.
    Should have stuck with Northern Gecko or Josh's Frogs, no doubt the cork selection will be much improved over jelinek bottom of the barrel 5"x5" square, unnaturally straight cut top and bottom...

    Thanks for the heads up. I ran across them as an option but shipping would have been $35 for about 10lb so the price really wasn't much better than northern gecko.

    The people over at Josh's frogs just confirmed that they've never had any issues shipping cork internationally, so we have a green light. I've thrown in an Edmonton postal code (I live NE of there in Cold Lake) and the price actually dropped a little.
    For 35-38lbs of cork FLATS it would be $165.50US so roughly $232 with AB GST.
    For 35lbs of FLATS & ROUNDS @ Northern Gecko the total comes to $390 with GST.
    We're looking at a 41% savings if all goes smoothly....

    There is a full shipping container of cork coming in next week that Tails and Scales is bringing in.
    Prices may be cheaper.
    The Cork is coming straight from Portugal.

    Thanks Erik, just sent a message off. Would be nice to get a few guys from Edmonton in on a large order to save on shipping...
