    Before the taxes/customcharges change on 1 july 2021 and it will be too expensive to buy hairtoys outside of the EU, I made wishlist orders.

    It really depends on a lot of factors (weight, where I'm buying it from, and who I'm buying it from). But for my usual price range, shipping and/or taxes can cost several times the actual price of the item... and since it's all paid in dollars, conversion rates make the price difference even higher.
    Either way, I'm pretty sure I'll find good ones locally! I'll share pictures in the appropiate threads if I do

    Those sound awesome! I hope those get shipped on time for you. I'm very symphatetic to the custom charges issue, as I whined about earlier

    Ooh! Now that Etsy collects import VAT instead of us having to pay handling charges, I would love a Church St & Love helix. She somehow manages to have low postage rates (which is the main obstacle with a lot of other US makers).
    That said, it also means I could potentially put in a reasonably large order with other makers to make the postage cost worth it ONN, maybe ... actually I shouldn't start thinking too much!

    I still would love a wavy top 4-prong Jeterfork with 4.5" FPL though.
    Length goal well and truly met, now just seeing how it grows ...
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    A Furnival helix - acrylic, antler, or wood. I was on a waiting list a very long time ago...pre-Covid...so at this point I’d be happy with whatever is available.

    Wait, do all sellers on Etsy do this?
    How does it work, is it cheaper than customs importcharges? (Only VAT and no importcharges added for admin. etc)
    Or is this only for the UK?
    *confused, and hopefull* LOL

    Bat a Lila rose flexi? You already have enough hair for half up, braid styles and they do small flexis.

    I'd love to get to try out the rose hair elixir by the Innate Life, but considering how many serums and oils I have in my stash, I doubt this is going to happen this year.

    Realistically, I'll probably purchase some more silk satin pillowcases.
