Willing to pay £50 for the owl!

#1 Post by wiggle » Fri Oct 07, 2005 7:49 am

I'm sure everyone on the board knows about the illusive owl that Bob gives to Charlotte at the hospital in Lost in Translation. You may also know that the only way to get it is from the very shop that Bill Murray buys it from. I've tracked down the website but need somebody who knows Japanese so that it can be ordered.

http://www.monseuil.co.jp/original/original-goods.html

The best way of doing it from there is by just sticking it on ebay. If there's anyone willing to buy it directly from the shop, they'd undoubtedly make a profit if they put it up for auction as anyone who's a fan of the film will know that this is the item to have! I'm willing to pay £50 (around $90) for it. If there's somebody out there who knows Japanese and is willing to do it, my email is: ibetnoonesthoughtofusingthisname@hotmail.com

Kind regards.

you can email monseuil.co.jp at info@monseuil.co.jp about it. they want you to pay 15,900 JPY (140 US$) for the middle-sized owl including shipping... how extortionate!!!!

I think that I've got a way to get some of these owls as a friend is going over to Japan soon. Should I get one of each size? The biggest one is a must, but the little ones are so adorable!
