Mad silly pricing though - have any of you UK people looked at using an forwarding company like Borderlinx?

Not particularly thought of something like that, could be useful for if I find things on ebay that only ship in america... needs further investigation I reckon.

and a quick search gives up this:

http://www.borderlinx.com/en/pages/testimonials

no new testimonials in 18 months, and on trustpilot they aren't viewed too favorably for a while (https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.borderlinx.com)

hmm - could have changed - I know it was well regarded by several reviews a few years back have this link saved from huff post.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/nancy...b_7134628.html

I'm spoiled as our NZ national post got smart and set one up in US and UK themselves because of our distance from everywhere. Then they added a US economy rate as well and even that is usually faster than USPS, and when you combine stuff it gets many times cheaper than individual international postage. And the difference compared to eBays Global Stealing Shipping program is just huge.

Fair enough, I did read some reviews and apparently they changed their US warehouse which has caused some problems, so it could just be a short term problem that is coming to an end. But recently their CS might be below average as well, with things going missing etc.

Will see if there is something that can be used in a similar way, as it opens it up to buying things currently not possible.

There's a few Christmassy things up on the uk store but nothing for 2017 specifically

If the purple beanie wasn't an extra £10 over the black one I would've pulled the trigger on it

I bought a hoodie from there on friday in the black friday sale for me and two kids tshirts for my nephews. I've trained them well. They've both asked for Concrete and Gold for Christmas!
I'm incredibly proud (wipes tear from eye)
