I posted my QBN bundle on here for sale and mentioned that I'd paid $350.00 from Qualatex. Someone pointed out that it's $250 on their site!!!

Well I got mine from Qualatex Australia, I know the dollar has been a bit down but come on! Anyway, I started to sniff about some US sites...

It turns out that I can get my Qualatex balloons cheaper from the states (even factoring in the shipping cost) than I can one hour's drive from home here in Australia. Weird?!?!

I think we need some more dealers to start up in Australia in order to create some competition (mind you capitalism hasn't been going so great lately).

Just on the other side of the scale... I decided to order an Apron from a different dealer in the US, the apron was about $47-ish dollars I think, but the shipping quote came in at over $80.00. Woah! For something that would weigh a pound and take up no space?

Odd eh?
