I love to shop!

Jump to last reply

Happy Christmas everyone!
Since my last post I have spent many happy hours researching things to do and places to see during our 4 week holiday in France & Italy next July and have become very excited by the thought of all the shopping I might do! I like the idea of finding different things in flea markets, department stores, markets and shops which I can bring back home.
I just love browsing for meaningful mementos of my holiday rather than souvenirs from regular souvenir stalls so anticipate some homewear type stuff as well as the normal girl stuff like handbags and shoes.
So .. I am thinking that even though I'll be in shopping heaven I'm going to need to get the stuff back home. We live in Australia and will have the normal suitcase allowance so I wondered if anyone has found a relatively simple and inexpensive means of shipping things back home.
I'm not talking container loads, just a possible box or two. Your experience and/or advice would be greatly appreciated!
