Wow Lyndell, that's pretty good – had to read it a few times as it went over my head the first time! <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

Anyway, the price and tax all depends on the exchange rate as to how much US$ you bring in.

It has ranged between 50 cents in the dollar to 78 cents in the dollar over the past two years, so when our dollar value was low I had to pay, but when it was higher, I didn't have to pay (for items around US$250.00)

But I agree – it's still cheaper to buy them from the US (but not necessarily the UK).
