    DominicanAlly,

    I get outrageous shipping quotes from minimis too. Did you also have to pay any duty once they shipped?

      So you guys found that dollorama wasn't competitive in prices compared to minimus? I haven't started shopping yet.

        I actually live close to the border, and have friends in the US so I've avoided the high shipping/duty. There are also services you can find online that forward US shipments to you for a few (usually much less than paying the shipping via the companies like minimus) and PO boxes you can ship to and pick up over there (like UPS stores) Not sure if this helps or if these are options for anyone. Most of the things I ordered from Minimus.biz and the safety products site were not available at places like Dollarama :( I didn't price out shipping to Canada with the safety product website, but their prices were awesome and they do ship internationally so it might be worth contacting them for shipping rates?

            Dominican Ally, Just wanted to let you know that I was "on the hunt" for silicone watches also. I managed to get them from a seller on DH Gate. I got 30 for $24.52 with free shipping. I also got them to split them evenly in my colors (Tangerine and Fuschia). I just searched and found a number of sellers with them. Any of the ones that had larger quantities, I msgd them and asked for pricing to ship in smaller quantities, then went with the cheapest who also turned out to be most responsive.

              Found another great site for those of you that still need to purchase bags. This one is on "Dollar Days"

               

              Here is the link to the actual bag:

               

              It is described as " Wholesale Closeout Eco Friendly Reusable Cotton Tote Bag with Zipper, and comes with either Black or Blue Trim. You have to purchase a case of 12

              but they work out to be $2.47 each.

              Only issue with shipping to Canada is a minimum $100 order, but the shipping is not ridiculously expensive like some places.

                      Thanks for the info on the watches! Do you happen to know if they are waterproof, or just water resistant?
