I saw that, did make me chuckle. There's going to be a huge mix of names being printed on them, but I reckon a lot of Foo Fighters.

I have been considering a new tee, and had to go for it when it came up. Just a shame it only appeared on the US store. No idea whether I'll get hit with import tax when it comes over.
Generally you don't. I have bought a fair amount from the US store (posters costing total of $100+ as bought them all at once) and haven't been hit with it yet.

I was looking on the shop and saw it before they even tweeted... considered posting it here but guessed it would be mentioned.

Ah thanks. It's been a long time since I bought anything from the US - I don't remember paying anything extra last time. Hopefully as it's only the one shirt it'll get through.

15 is the official limit. Then VAT applies. AT 135 Customs duty kicks in on top of VAT. Often if it looks small and low value it can slip through over 15.

https://www.gov.uk/government/public...outside-the-eu

In summary:

Goods Value* Customs Charges applicable
0.01 to 15 - No customs duty
0.01 to 15 - No Import VAT

15.01 to 135 - No customs duty
15.01 to 135 - Import VAT due

135.01 and greater - Customs duty due,
135.01 and greater - Import VAT due

Hello guys, haven't posted in a while but that doesn't mean I haven't been buying lol. Managed to pick up a copy of the let it die promo for 30. Seems to be well over the 40 mark on discogs but I did a cheeky offer on ebay that got accepted.

Thanks. Think it cost me around $50 in the end, so hopefully it'll slide by.

I got an extra large - I have no idea on US sizings, but over here they can be fine or tight depending on the brand. If it all goes wrong, I'll have new pyjamas!!!

What are Tultex brand normally like?

I've found the t-shirts run fairly true to size, but I think they're a tad slim on the width. They have plenty of length.

On the 3/4 sleeve raglan type of shirts, they are more true to size. They are a men's cut though which means April will be wearing it as a dress.

I just bought a blue 7" vinyl of For All The Cows.

I like coloured vinyl, for some reason it always makes me smile.

I'm not 100% sure. It was listed on eBay but the auction can't be pulled up at all, as if it was removed before sale but that site claims it was sold.

Me too - when they are the bright colours the band used - red, blue yellow, white etc it always somehow reminds me of my fascination as a kid at the old gumball machines at fairs here - filled with big bright round colours... that my mum refused to buy because it was gum and she knew what gum meant while I just thought sweets! OK so there's way too much back story for you l

Yeah I'm not sure how but it does happen. Some of the sites that trap auction data with (I'm assuming approved) spiders seem to occasionally trap details that you then can't see, or at least need to have been watching to see because you then can't ever find in a search even if it's just completed.

popsike has done that with vinyl for me more than a few times - been looking at listings, watching even and they just disappear with no notice, then the listings appear months later with the sale having been "caught" just like any other
