I've been looking at the EBAY site here and its all stuff in Europe, which makes me wonder, how does anyone every get stuff they buy on EBAY through customs?

Has anyone had experience in this?

And is there a Russian Version of EBAY where loads of second hand stuff is for sale?

Depends on what you buy, but most of the stuff I have bought off of ebay was less than $100 in value.

And it all gets thru, with no delays or problems !

So far, in Aug/Sept I am about 54/55, which is almost perfect :)

One package took nearly 2 months, but it turns out it was sent via ship !

This site is brilliant - tricky to navigate without knowing any Russian, but very useful!

That's what I thought when I followed Vovik's link.

So much so we decided to list something we no longer want -
http://www.avito.ru/items/moskva_mebel_i_interer_stilnyj_kompyuternyj_stol_40764680

Surprisingly, in less than 16 hours, 80 people have looked at the listing so far. No enquiries though.

The downside is that 'she' has found a new place to search for things we never knew we needed and have somehow managed to live happily all this time without !

Ha! Uh oh!.

Not interested in the desk, but i'll buy the sword on the wall!

...but no guarantee like PayPal gives you when you use eBay.
