    Yeah so far I've ordered a bunch of socks and some pastry supply stuff - nothing too big.

    I've been checking it over and it's got just about everything. I was dying to order a vintage dress (for the princely sum of $7) for our church dinner (the choir is putting it on and the theme is vintage so we're supposed to dress the part if we can) but there's no way it would arrive by April 30th.
    I can't think of anything witty to say for my signature line.

    Well WOG. You'll have to keep me posted! I just dropped $44 bucks at that site! It's addictive!!!!

    And as soon as I hit "order" I thought of something else I could/should get LOL

    I can usually find the same stuff on eBay for the same or cheaper. Still comes from China.

    Yes, I probably could. What I liked about this one was being able to place just one order for multiple items. And usually when stuff is priced Canadian funds it's a lot higher. Shipping for instance always seems to be a lot more.

    I'm very curious to see how it works.

    That's what I liked too - dealing with one vendor instead of multiple ones. It's still multiple shipping - but the things I've been ordering have all been in the $2 shipping range .

    I will keep you posted - I first started about a month ago so my things should start trickling in any day now .

    I downloaded the app and spent about $50 on some various summery tops.

    They aren't going to be here until JULY?! WTF?

    Yes.

    My brother doesn't like pajamas. According to him, you wear pants to work, not to bed. He does, however, like night shirts, so SiL ordered a couple through them. Well, apparently, the heat from his body while asleep was enough to leech out some of the dye that was used to color the nightshirt he was wearing. That dye ended up giving him chemical burns that raised angry red welts on the side of his body that he sleeps on most of the time. It took almost two weeks of treatment with aloe to completely heal him.

    I'm sure they have some great deals. On the other hand, you sometimes "get what you pay for".
