I just read Gwen10's post and have a question re International shipping costs also. I want to know if there is a way to find out what the costs (duties, fees, etc.) will be to ship out of the US? I had a very nice lady buy a Miu Miu Coffer from me for just over $1000. I never do this, but she was so nice that I declared the item as a "gift" however, in order to insure the package through USPS, I had to declare the value, so I declared the $1000. Well, she ended up having to pay $400 in fees to Sweden. I felt really bad because she could have bought a brand new Coffer for what she ended up paying for mine! So, any suggestions on how to avoid this without compromising the insurance securities on my bags? Also, is it illegal or anything to send items as gifts?
