    Buying Goods from US Websites

    Hi, I have heard of websites that effectively allow you to order goods from US websites that do not ship overseas (i.e. Gap clothing). I think the way that these sites work is that they provide you with a US address to use at the "check out" and then they receive your order and post it on to HK.
    I have looked at one of these sites - called - but the costs seem quite expensive.
    I am wondering if any other mummies have researched this and found a cost effective and reliable way of doing this. There are so many great online stores available to US residents and I am really keen to update my wardrobe!
    Thanks for your help.

    I've used which does the same thing, they also allow groceries and any other website you find. I used them particularly for maternity stuff from babystyle and also from the Gap/target etc..they also give you an address in the States and then ship to you wherever you are. Have a look and compare the shipping to your other website. In the end I thought it was worth it to get the things I knew I wanted and also some grocery treats...good luck.

    I use expatexpress too, worked out ok cost wise compared to others. They've even shipped very heavy items for less than the purchase sites quoted.
