Customs charges « on: September 29, 2021, 12:55:37 PM » Author: Mandolin Girl
We were looking for an E26 lamp holder and saw one on eBay, then I checked the additional costs.  :poof: :poof: :poof: :poof:

I did not expect the import charges to be twice the value of the item and then some.!!!  :o :poof: >:( :curse:

As for the shipping costs don't get me started. >:(

Needless to say we won't be buying it.
