Knocking on the door, who could that be (as if I didn't know after following the tracking system online). Box addressed to me and it was a brand new Big Shot.
Old plates and dies did not come back, unfortunately, but of course the most important is the machine.
Have to say, the company I bought the original from handled all with excellent customer care and service. Polite and friendly, kept me informed all the way through, and all and all I would really like to recommend craft4.com to all of you.
