1st Class Letter/ Envelope rate
Captain Q apologizes to inform international buyers that USPS International 1st Class Letter/Envelope shipping rates are suspeneded indefinitly. Due to issues with the entity that provided the less expensive shipping option.
As soon as a less expensive shipping option becomes available again for international buyers, Captain Q will happily implment it.
Again, sorry for the trouble. :(

The Captain Q Bazaar is in the process of moving into a bigger home.
The move is in the same city, of Eugene Oregon, so Captain Q Bazaar will remain open for the next several days and will probably close down for a couple of days starting either this Sunday (8-7-2020) or sometime early the following week. I predict that we will not be closed for very long during that period so we will provide a bypass password if you wish to order and browse during that time with the understanding that shipping will be delayed.
The best part about this move is that the Captain Q Bazaar inventory capacity will increase dramatically. Which means there will inevitably be more Lego variety to choose from. :)
MOVING IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE
Captain Q is seeking to move in the not too distant future when a proper home can be located. The bad news is that donations to the CDC have currently been suspended until the Captain Q Bazaar has resettled. The good news is that to make the inevitable move easier Captain Q will seek to put heavier and larger inventory items on significant sales! ; i.e. all instruction booklets, Comic Books, Duplo and heavy items will be put on a sale! The sales will tend to be progressive in that I will increase the percentage off until most of those particular items are sold.
When will the move happen? This I cannot say at this time as the city I live in, Eugene Oregon, is a renters market being a college town and is tricky to find a place that
will accomodate all the requirements we seek.
CAPTAIN Q CALL TO ACTION: Medical Workers need our help!
These are uncertain times and especially perilous for those dealing with Coronavirus directly everyday at hospitals! Captain Q is hearing that they are running out of essential items such as gloves, masks, aprons, eye protection, ventilators, etc.
The medical workers need our help!
5% of Captain Q Bazaar revenue goes to CDC
Captain Q plans to send at least 5% of revenue generated by the Captain Q Bazaar to the CDC for the foreseeable future, starting with an initial $500. (April: Proof, More Proof 1,2 Extra Proof, 1, 2, 3 - May: Evidence, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 June: Fact 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Captain Q discount/coupon incentive 15% to 25% off
If you provide evidence to Captain Q that you donated recently of at least $10 in cash or donations to the CDC, a hospital, a food bank, etc. Captain Q will discount a current order or provide a coupon for at least 15% and up to 25% off ( current open coupons will be upgraded )
Greetings good citizens of Lego Bricklink.
These are concerning times and Captain Q would like to encourage everyone to stay safe and remember to wash your hands!
A customer recently asked whether there will be a delay in service with orders at the Captain Q Bazar and the answer currently is no as our shipping process is currently not effected by this global ordeal, which I will elaborate below.
CAPTAIN Q BAZAAR SHIPPING PROCESS
- Orders are packed
- Shipping labels are printed at home
- Orders are dropped off at local USPS post office in after hours dropbox
Captain Q is a bit of a recluse and dislikes waiting in lines at USPS so printing labels at home and then dropping packages off at the USPS Dropbox which is the safest and most conducive way to ship during these times.
UPGRADES: Captain Q will be making website upgrades in the coming future. :)
ATTENTION PLEASE: Captain Q will be out of town Feb. 28th - Mar. 1st (this Wednesday and Thursday)
Packing and Shipping services will be delayed during that time frame. The Captain Q Bazaar will remain open for browsing and ordering. Captain Q will be intermitently available to attend to questions and concerns.
Cheers from CAPTAIN Q: Inexpensive International 1st Class Large Envelope Rate is back! :D
Rates start at $5.50 for orders under 1 ounce. Parts cannot be thicker than 3/4 of an inch. ( refer to shipping rates chart below for full details )
Captain Q has gained access to a resource that will allow for affordable international shipping for small orders, again. The rates are not quite as great as before but starting at $5.50 for 1 ounce is not too shabby compared to that of the USPS 1st class package rate.
CAPTAIN Q APOLOGIZES: Inexpensive International 1st Class Large Envelope Rate is no longer available
United States Postal Service has retired the International 1st Class Letter Rate packages that allowed for Captain Q to charge inexpensive shipping for small international orders. Int. 1st Class Package Rate will now be the default shipping rate for International buyers.
Captain Q will investigate some hopefully better alternatives comparable to $3.50 shipping.
( Please refer to the Shipping Table below for rates )
CAPTAIN Q WILL BE OUT OF TOWN: MAY 7th - 12th
Begining on May7th, Captain Q will be out of town until May 12th. The Q Bazaar may remain open but all services will be delayed until Captain Q returns.
MAKE SURE: To have payment for your order in by May 6th as that will be the last day Captain Q ships for a while.
NEW INTERNATIONL SHIPPING PRICES: As low as $3.50 and $3.00 to Canada
The Captain Q Bazaar has expanded upon International shipping rates by adding a new option - USPS 1st CLASS ENVELOPE INTERNATIONAL RATES - to allow for shipping costs to be as low as $3.50 and $3.00 for Canada.
RESTRICTIONS - To qualify for this low shipping cost, the parts in your order must adhere to a maximum of 3/4 of inch in thickness. (Mini Figures qualify)
Captain Q ships exclusively with the United States Postal Service (USPS). It is rare, but on occasion USPS will lose a package. Insurance is a good idea for your orders, but not required.
Captain Q ships two to three times a week. If you need your order shipped promptly beyond these scheduled days, please do not hesistate to ask. :D
Due to COVID-19 Captain Q has implmented safe shipping procedures to ensure the saftey and health of Captain Q employees. The shipping process is listed below
