It was cheaper to order it abroad than locally. However, Amazon doesn't ship to the Philippines, and given that it's a big package, I didn't want to risk paying a lot in the customs. Thus, I had someone order it for me.
This is the first time I ordered from USA 2 MNL. I asked the owner, Ms. Geri, a lot of questions prior to buying, and even after I placed my order. She was very patient to answer every question. She actually gave me a reasonable price for this item, considering it's weight and the shipping costs. Cheaper than other online stores. :)
It took 8 weeks for the item to get here because it's via sea freight. I know 8 weeks is a long time but I just had to be patient.
Here, you have the blade. I imagined it to be a lot bigger. Haha.
And this is the awesome machine! I am very excited to do a lot of crafts with this.
If you're from the Philippines and you would like to order any item in the US and...
- you don't have a US address;
- you don't have a US credit card;
- you don't want to think about customs fees;
- just because you want to;
I know this is a very short post for an awesome product but I am not an expert on this machine. I'll leave it to the experts to give you an explanation on how to use it. I am still a newbie and I haven't even made a project with it. Haha.
That's it for this post! Thanks for reading! :)
