A few guys who posted pictures of their dogs also named them Oliver. That's a popular dog name, it seems.

Yeah, I think the reason I've been lucky is because I have really only been in the shirt business so far (barrelntrigger can attest to this, ha) so I fit everything into a flat rate envelope. I even managed to get 4 BB shirts (2 polos and two ocbd's) into one legal sized FRE and made it there no problems. Their customs taxes are the most retarded I've heard about, but other than that, things get their fine even when marked "merchandise" and not "gift".

 

Oh, and I just print the shipping label eBay gives me. The one half-page label (not the 4 half pages like England requires).

I block all buyers from Italy. Their customs laws specifically state, no shoes, no leather, no haberdashery. That pretty much sums up all of my listings. It's unfortunate, but I won't break international law to make a buck.

Another good luck to all the people preparing for the bar exam!  I am a few years out of school, but it looks like I may be taking another bar this winter.  Stupid Californians and their non reciprocity.
