Re: Alva Information

Perhaps it's a Canadian problem?

Re: Alva Information

I thought the coop group I was talking to was for Alva. They said they got busted at customs and had to pay WAY more (something like $20 per diaper). I don't know, the only experience I personally have is ordering one or two at a time off of Ebay.

What about the lady that says it is illegal to even order them because of copyright infringement. Is that true? I am new to CD and had not heard of that before.

Also, I though last July some Sunbabies were seized & destroyed for copyright infringement. It just does not seem worth it for me.

ETA: Is it ok to buy a Coach knockoff through the backdoor just because I don't want a ugly backpack? Nope. I have a real one (only 1 purse) For me it is quality not quantity. I got my bag off Ebay, several years old. It is real though. Same for diapers. Sorry. I really should shut up. I may get bashed as I know these are loved diapers...

I've been hit by customs a few times when ordering things from the states to ship into Canada, and it is kind of random! I ordered cards from Shutterfly that had to get redone, the first shipment was dinged $20 at customs and the 2nd shipment (exact same size box and everything) was not.
