I have a good friend moving here from the UK in a couple of weeks. I want to order some Tappits from FMM, so she can bring them out with her. I was wondering if there's anything else that's difficult to get hold of that I should also order? (bear in mind I have to pay duty & HIGH shipping on anything that comes from the US)
Thanks for any suggestions.
Oh boy! That's a tall order....
It depends on what kind of decorating you do.
Get on a good UK site and go crazy looking thru their catalogs.
Do you do weddings? Have her get you a few of their magazines. To have them shipped (to the US) it runs around $20 a copy The ones I am familiar w/have no instructions, just pix. If you can work off that go for it
Also there are many, many books that are hard or expensive to get here. Hpe these suggestions help some.
i think these look great, apparently not available in the usa either.
maybe some moulds? tools? cutters?
I ordered Tappits to Ontario from the UK - to have them ship it to me - and it wasn't all that unreasonable. I ordered a good number of them too. I got them in less than a week and did not feel particularly shafted by the shipping. I guess maybe I expected it to be more from there??
I don't know what you can and can't get where you are but i've noticed a lot of people complaining about red colouring.
I would recommend Squires red extra and black extra paste colours, I use them all the time.
how about gold/ silver dagrees - i dont know if you can get them in canada?
Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I will definitely go with the Tappits, since they seem to be a bit cheaper there (good exchange rate at the moment, too). Not sure if I can ask her to bring magazines too, I'll ask how much space she can spare me!
