This is just a guide to help anyone thinking of buying the old or sometimes new,  Sets of Wall Ducks that used to adorn many Australian homes in the 1940's and 1950's.
(some new sets are just as good as the oldies)

When searching type in "wall ducks"   "flying ducks" or "flying duck"  also look under collectables  or ceramic or antique if you type in just "ducks" you will have too many items come up that will make your search harder.

To find items that are listed in Australia check the box "in Australia" . you'll find more Australian sellers this way.

Scroll down the list, see the ducks you like at the price you are willing to pay. (beware of items listed at $1.00 as when you bid you may get into a bidding frenzy and end up paying more for the cheaply listed ones than the ones listed at a realistic price.)

Check the listing details and pictures, don't be afraid to ask the seller questions. Any good seller will respond to all questions happily.

Check the sellers FEEDBACK as this can tell you a lot about previous transactions he or she has made.

Check the postage as well, you don't want to be paying excessive postage. 
I find that between $12.00 AU and $14.00 AU Registered and Insured by Australia Post is the normal price to pay anywhere in Australia) "depending on the size of your birds"

Also ask your seller to pack them carefully especially when the seller doesn't have much feedback as they may not have sold or packed many items before. 

Also check the payment methods accepted just to be sure you can pay the way the seller requires.

When your'e completely satisfied, start clicking and make your purchase.

Don't forget to leave feedback when your items arrive, it's a good way to get yourself a reputation on ebay so other ebayers can trust you when your'e buying or selling.

Happy ebaying everyone. Andy
