Sometimes you get what you paid for and you get more than you expected. Perhaps the $2.25 dollar price was less than the seller was expecting… so they packed it based on worth. 4 paper napkins. I feel great gratitude to the USPS for the delivery of this machine in a manner that allowed it to arrive in a still working condition. Any poor handling at all and this machine would have been in pieces… and not functional in any way. Great JOB U.S. Post Office. Thank you!! to all those who took care with this package that was not even marked fragile… it arrived working (what more could anyone ask).
