    You speak the truth. It's a great time to be a brumbies supporter.

    I need to buy some good quality thin flat boot laces, similar to these. Any ideas? Doesn't matter if it's local or on the web, not urgent. Thanks

    Thanks.

    Well navigating Taobao really stretched my year 9 Chinese to its limits, but I just managed to finally buy 7 of these for $87 AUD shipped. I gather they are factory seconds.

    I'll report back if they arrive...

    http://world.taobao.com/item/520137...&spm=a312a.7700846.0.0.f8HomS&_u=i2kj90bb77e4

    Taobao seems to have refunds though which is not bad.

    It also seems that pretty much all Woodlore products can be had on Taobao (they are all made in China anyway). So if this works I might buy a few more things.

    this one also looks like a good store for shoe care, with more buyer ratings, but three months to shipping: https://woodroyal.world.taobao.com/

    Google translate highlight warning me that I was buying seconds-quality trees:

    So here's the damage on the westbournes. Slightly worse than the 1cm scratch that was in the listing.

    Any recommendations for somewhere in Sydney to fix it?

    Thanks, went with TZ Laces in the end, they seem quite well regarded.

    Anyone care to elaborate?
