Supplies sites that ship to Canada

Recommended Posts

This is great ladies! I find a ton of stuff online only to get cushed by shipping so i have to go back to the drawing board! this is helpful :) you ladies rock!

 

If i can get organised enough to do this and a little bit of luck as well I am going to try to gather everything i need from one or two sites so that even if i have to pay $50 bucks in shipping i have an order significant enough that it still makes sense. hopefully it works out :) i only have or feel like i have 72 million things to buy LOL

I spent an hour this morning shopping on The Knot only to find sadly they don't ship here.  My SIL lives in Cali so I could ship it there, but then she has to ship to me and I will have to pay duty (oh and wedding is in 55 days lol).

Thanks so much for all the links, guess I have to start all my shopping over again!

If you have the time to drive to Buffalo, you can ship to a place in Lewiston, just across the border for $5. Then you could just declare the stuff as you cross the border, they might not make you pay the duty.

I read somewhere about this site:  http://www.bongous.com/   where you pay a small fee ($5) and they give you a US address so you can have stuff shipped from websites that only ship within the US.  Once they receive your goods, they ship it to you and you pay only the exact shipping fees.  Not sure if this will save too much money on shipping in the end, but it does allow you to get those things that you REALLY want from a website that doesn't ship internationally.

 

I'm thinking of using this because the odd time I find awesome clearance stuff on websites that I would buy in a heartbeat but they don't ship internationally so by using this site and paying the shipping, it might still end up cheaper than buying it here because the clearance price is so low.

Just remember, it's not only the crazy shipping fees. You'll probably get slapped with a customs charge too. I've gotten two customs broker bills in the last month, and even though the actual taxes weren't high, each company (UPS and TNT) charged at least $15 for processing.

KCB2011 - thanks for posting that! I've heard about companies like that but didn't know where to find them.

 

Mochamakes3 - that's a good point. Customs can be brutal!
 

It is nice to have the option though, if there's something you REALLY want.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
