I had a quick look through the threads at Bead&Button and (lo and behold!) I happened to see a UK member offering links to a few more informative sites. This forum/community thing on the web works wonders doesn't it. :icon_12:
I'm going to look more into shipping items from overseas, get some more info and see how feasible it is for me (as I'm only starting out I've got to be slightly cautious).
Anyway thanks for the web tip, much appreciated!!
