1) You can't expect Ebay prices from online shops where they may hold items for a long time - as opposed to the 10 days or whatever for Ebay.
This is true, but they make even the most expensive of UK retro-collectable shops appear good value for money. :lol: But I suspect that the prices would probably seem high to Americans too, as the sellers have almost certainly done no real research into values as they have put blanket prices on practically every piece taking no account of varying desirability of different designs/colours/sizes.
I've found a lot of American eBay users don't mind buying from abroad, though, as their eBay automatically shows you search results from around the world and you have to click things for a native-specific search. The opposite of eBay UK. In my (admittedly modest) experience of around 250 sales, about 1/3rd of my vintage items on eBay go to the USA.
Holmegaard, I've noticed, tends to sell a lot cheaper in the USA, though. And in Australia. Unfortunately postage costs usually
bump the prices back up to UK prices - but not always!
