"You pay $0 and then pay $1k to have it shipped" is more like the stuff 
I tend to collect...

Of course, I've never tried to get a rack of gear shipped *to* me from 
overseas.  That would probably end up being much more than $1k.  And, I 
try to avoid buying anything but parts if they have to be shipped to 
me.  Limiting the collecting radius to places that I can drive in ~6hrs 
or so (and owning a box truck with a lift-gate) helps a lot in bringing 
down the per-item delivery costs. :)  Compared with freight shipping 
all the stuff I've collected, the money I've spent on the truck really 
is just chunk change.
