I have had a look on this site a couple of times (mainly at the same items as I'm still deciding if I should buy items from this site) and I was just wanting to know if anyone from Australia had brought items from this site and how you found your experience to be with the service, items etc, I'm still only new to scrapbooking so thats why I am a bit nervy about buying items not here in Australia. thanks for looking.
There is a wide range of products on scrapbook.com. The delivery is great, though it can be pricey and seem disproportionate to what you spend. However, the prices of individual items are cheaper than what we'd pay here in Australia and the fact that you can order just about anything, makes it enticing! If you are only buying under $100 of stuff, the shipping does seem expensive.
Even with shipping I ended up paying about half of what I would expect to here in Aus. If you're only looking for a couple of items, my tip is to check out EBay, but if you've got more than $150 to shop with, go for it! Plus the shipping calculator is easy to use and you can take items in and out of the cart to see what they're adding to your shipping costs (heavy items will add more than lighter items of course).
I'm looking at placing my second order as soon as we move house - I haven't been able to find bulk Bazzill or American Crafts cardstock in any of the outlets near me and even with shipping from scrapbook.com I'll end up paying only 50c a sheet (instead of 95c or more!). Service was prompt and friendly - I'm usually already familiar with the products I'm purchasing though so if you're not sure what you're looking at, maybe check out your local first.
Thanks for all of your options, I finally decided to go ahead and place an order and am about to place my second order. I did what a couple of you suggested about if I have more to spend the price of the shipping is worth it so I saved my money until I had a bit over $100 and now I'm a happy little girl. (can't say the same for my back account) thanks again girls.
