Internet shopping – I have a problem.

Marcia sent me an email asking for the names of the online shopping stores I like.  I started listing all the stores from which I have bought stuff in the past couple of months.  Wow, I really do have a problem!

I suppose it is just as well that I don’t like shopping the conventional way, so unless it is groceries or clothes I will pretty much buy everything else on line.

I thought it might be fun to post them here too:

Here goes: – I have recently bought a Nathan running hydration back pack as well as quite a few Kindle books. – it is a Spanish store, I bought my Garmin Forerunner 910XT from them. – I bought two pairs of Hunter’s boots on their sale.  YAY!  I have been dying for Hunter boots since I found out about them but could not justify spending over a grand on a pair of Wellingtons.  On the sale I got two pairs for R958 – bargain!  I would not rave about their service though.  I queried why my delivery was taking so long and did not even receive a response to my email.  It was only when I complained on Hello Peter than anything was done. – I only ordered this yesterday – can’t wait.  I bought an ice cream machine….. (and I had a R500 voucher from Discovery Miles, very useful)  EDITED _ Arrived! Yay – I am a sucker for anything paper – and if some of the money is going to a good cause… I have no will power.  I am also still waiting for this deliver.  It has been posted.  EDITED _ Arrived! Yay – I ordered their Facebook business cards! They are free at the moment, you only pay for the delivery.  I like this idea, they take your cover photos and create a cards out of them.  I only ordered them yesterday as well, so am waiting in bated breath…..

Other than that I ordered Washi tape from Francesca Mills whose details I found on this blog.  I received that parcel a week or so ago. Love it.

So there you have it.  My internet shopping list.  Where have you bought stuff from lately?

  1. My regular haunts are Take2, Naartjie, Kalahari, Poetry, 2 Peas in A Bucket, Yuppiechef and most recently, Smitten, a store in constantia that is willing to post to me. I don’t think i would be such an avid internet shopper if i still lived in the city – i justify that I don’t have access to any decent shops in EL hence the reason for shopping online! The best service I’ve received is from Smitten, Poetry, Yuppiechef and 2 Peas in Bucket.

  2. Thanks again. My favourite stores are still etsy. Oh the joys. I could happily spend HUNDREDS every month. And of course Amazon for all my kindle books. I’ve ordered from moo twice and I love the quality – LOVE. But it takes forever to arrive and I always have to pay customs 😦

I would love to hear from you
