Anyone bought Thai furniture and shipped it home?

Jump to last reply

Hi all my travel friends!
this is my 3rd time to Thailand, and every time I'd gone in the past I dream about buying some Thai furniture to ship home (namely a dinning room table and chairs).
Has anyone done this? Is it worthwhile?
I know that the main issues would be local import tax... but how significant of an issue can that already be? (it would be obvious that I am not importing it to sell...)
I would really appreciate hearing from any of you if you'd had experience with that, and also - ANY RECOMMENDATIONS for a good place to buy beautiful teak furniture? (closer to wholesale the better!)

Thanks !!
