    Hey all,

    I am merging the PIF Europe and PIF Canada into this new thread.
    Since shipping costs are similar, the European offers are now extended to Canada and vice-versa.

    You can use this thread to make your offers and for claims, but please use the tab also to get more visibility and have better accountability of the ratio of offering and claims!
    The spreadsheet has been updated to show all Europe and Canada offers.

    CURRENT OFFERS!: https://goo.gl/5bXyCq

    (please use the EuroCanada PIFs tab)

    Follow these steps to start your glorious PIFing journey:

    1. CLAIM AN OFFER!:
    - Visit the Google Doc above, and find an offer you'd like to claim
    - Post in the thread that you'll be claiming that offer (tagging the person making the offer is always helpful!)
    - Edit the Doc so that the offer you're claiming is now RED and has a STRIKETHROUGH on the text
    - PM your shipping address to the user who made the offer, and they will send it to you absolutely free! Some split shipping may be requested for international forumites.

    2. MAKE AN OFFER!:
    - Add a record you'd like to offer to the Google Doc
    - Be sure that your offer is in GREEN so that everyone knows your offer is up for grabs!
    - Post in this thread about your offer! Include a picture and where you are willing to ship

    3. SHIP YOUR OFFER!:
    - Once a fellow forumite has claimed your generous and beautiful offer, ship it to the address they give you!

    4. PIF SOME MORE!:
    - There is no limit to how often you can do this, however it is common practice to not spam claims so that everyone has a fair shot
    - Feel free to put up offers before claiming anything so that you're square to claim things without worrying about putting up offers immediately. Lots of people will do this, and it's why we have so many great offers on that Doc!

    5. NOTE:
    -books are generally NOT accepted as a vinyl equivalent offer.
    -claims are to be made on the forum, not via PM
    -make an offer before claiming a PIF
    -don't be greedy

    Would a moderator be able to merge the other two threads into this one? I think it wold be nice to have all the old PIFs in one place with photos etc.

    I did ask and originally this was the plan.
    but..... (there's always a but)

    when 2 threads merge, the messages are ordered chronologically, and this could be (very) confusing.
    Especially, IMO, in relation to the first post, which I would like to be explanatory of what the PIF is, how it works and to contain the all important link to the excel spreadsheet....

    Therefore I have opted to simply lock the old threads, with my message containing the link to this one as the last visible, and avoid merging.

    but obviously, the PIF Europe-Canada thread is not my private possession and I'll be happy to see what are everyone's preferences in relation to the transfer and merging of the "old and original" threads....

    To be fair, I'm not familiar at all with this band. It's stoner metal, right ?

    the grandfathers of stoner metal perhaps.

    I's say, with Kyuss "Blues for the Red Sun", it's probably the genre defining album.

    @Mr Moore

    Popped that Dylan in the post for you just now. Hopefully it should be with you next week.

    @Jan Your Mumford & Sons record is on it's way! Took a little longer with finishing a lot of work before going on my trip and actually going on the trip. Sorry!

    Also, in the meantime @panino's package made it's way to me, but also haven't had time to post about that. Super happy with the Fugazi record! Thanks again!

    As I'm catching up on things, here are two new PIF's from me!

    Sonic Youth - NYC Ghost & Flowers
    Sonic Youth - Experimental Jet Set, Trash and no Star

    Both are new, sealed, 180gram.
    Not a problem for me if someone wants to grab them together and get into Sonic Youth a bit more.

    It's €18 to ship to Canada for me, if we could split the costs if you're from Canada that would be cool.

    @panino If no-one has taken your Sleep record I would love to get that.
    Amazing PIF.
    Already excited to seem them play at Roadburn 2019, even-though that's so far away.

    Would be the third claim from you though.
    Guess we have a kinda similar taste.
