The problem is estimating the shipping cost, which in my experience 
can run almost equal to the cost of the bulbs themselves, but varies 
quite a bit.

Some of the foreign dealers I've bought bulbs from require payment in 
advance, and some do not (at least,they billed me on shipment, but it 
may be because I was personally acquainted with them).

By the way, I'm not volunteering to manage one of these projects, at 
least not in the next 2 years, because I'm still working and also 
have to get moved to my new house and get my old one sold. I'm going 
to have one more surplus bulb sale, this summer, and after that will 
transfer a lot of my stock to a nearby nursery, just keeping as much 
as I can use in the new garden and bulb house.
