Hey gang, can someone lend me a hand?

I need to get my hands on the vanishing 'whatever' in a paper bag gaff.

I've got the cash (I know these things are not cheap), and I've got an address it can be shipped to here in Europe. What I don't have is a credit card, so I've been banging my head for weeks trying to get my hands on this thing. It seems the European shops (which are few and far between as it is) don't stock it, and won't order just one piece.

It can be a beer bottle, mustard or ketchup bottle -- 'whatever' -- (Although I am leaning towards the mustard bottle.) But I'd prefer it to be new, and one of the better quality models available. I'll pay. And the label should be part of the bottle, not a glued-on paper label.

Any takers? I could really use the help.

Thanks in advance,
Chance

All I see I can get is the empty coke bottle version. I think ketchup is the best.

Frank, Doug, did you even read my message? I need help from a third party; someone who is willing to buy the thing for me and ship is to me here in Europe. A google search (which I have done already) would have given me the shop addresses, but without a credit card that's really no help in the end. And I don't feel it's appropriate to contact a shop with a favor like this.

Are either one of you able to help out the way it was put in the original message?

86 views and not so much as a single PM? I guess I'm not the only guy here with no credit card.

Happy holidays everyone!

Heartfelt THANKS goes out to both Mario and Arkadia for offering to help out with this problem of mine.

To the rest of you guys: Thanks -- for nothing.

Happy Holidays.

Both Grand Illusions (cited by Frank) and Nielsen's (cited by Doug) allow you to send in a check or money order. Nielsen's even lets you order COD.

I would suggest being nicer to people who try to help you out. I understand it wasn't exactly what you wanted, but they tried.
