*Please take note that USA does not practice tax refund.
TAX in USA is 10%(rounded up)

Due to request for odd size/bulky items, those who intend to buy large handbags/big and bulky stuff will have to add
USD 20 / Item 
I would advise against purchasing bags made of delicate fabrics, as they may be subjected to rough handling during the bag checks (USA Strict regulations) Bags made of tough material such as nylon, twill etc shouldn't be much of a problem though.

Those who purchase small items (accessories, wristlets/wallets, mascara/lip gloss etc) do not need to pay an additional fee.


Bulk Charge Breakdown
Small items (key chain size, lip gloss, coach wallets)  - 0 USD
Apparels - 5 USD(Simple T-shirt) - 15 US(Levi's Jeans)
Footwear - 10-20 USD (Depending on weight and size)
Large handbags - 20 USD

*The fees above includes all packaging as it is( eg. in carrier/dust bag/boxes)
If you are unsure, just pay a flat USD 20/item, I will refund you the excess should there be any.


*As you all know, I will be heading to the boutique directly to purchase your items therefore authenticity is guaranteed. All items will come with Tags and proof of authenticity. However, do take note that not all items will come with a box/dustbag. Prices online has always been cheaper than at the boutiques, should the prices differs (it varies from brands to brands) alot when im in USA I will let you know beforehand.

Our products are made of different types of materials, thus they should be cared for differently 

Silver - it's natural for silver to age overtime (due to exposure of environmental factors), to prolong their lifespan, clean with a silver cloth/solution (only for 925 silver) after occasional usage. If you really have the time, it's best to wipe with a cloth after each wear to get rid of grime.

Plastic/turquoise/shells/pearls beads/miscellaneous beads - should be wipe with a damp,lint-free cloth after use. Never soak them in any chemicals or solutions. Store all products in their complimentary box/case/bag and in a cool dry place when not in use.
