Almost every time I need to buy something small, like a phone case or piercing jewelry, I go to eBay and see a few options. If I don't limit my searches to domestic (I'm in US), I can almost always get the exact same product shipped from China for 1/4 of the price. The only downside is that shipping often takes over a month and there is little to none customer service. It seems like a lot of ebay sellers buy the products from China and sell them with mark-up. For the last few purchases I've actually bought straight from China and waited anywhere between 5-8 weeks for it to get here. It's perfect for little things you don't need urgently. Anyone have similar experiences?
