  1. Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anyone here had this experience before? I plan on purchasing a bag from La Garconne, but they only ship to Germany with Fedex.
    Can anyone tell me how the brokerage fees are with Fedex? From my experience, when I lived in Vancouver, they are the lesser of the evils (UPS, DHL, etc), when having items shipped from Germany (they only charged $10 as oppose to $50+with UPS).
    I do understand taxes and duties must be paid, but when the shipping companies charge hefty fees, then the purchase may not even worth it.

    TIA for any input!
