I think I have you beat on my UK to USA bubble wrap shipping story,,,,,, Received notice of US Postal package delivery notice that required pick-up. Went to get it, and there was my 1949 Hetchins Super Special frameset wrapped in nothing but bubble wrap with a shipping label attached!!! No box surrounding it, just bubble wrap!!!
Thank God it was undamaged, which is more than I can say for a couple of deliveries received from a poorly packed Italian seller.

Last month I received a set of Alloy rims from the UK .Wrapped around the rims was bubble wrap, and a label attached. They where hanging on the light post in front of my door by our local USPS driver. NO BOX just the bubble wrap around the rims, PERFECT condition! AMAZING! Cheers John Crump OldwrappedinbubblesBrit.
