I just received a phone call from Fed Ex. Trade that I will be receiving a bill in the amount $158 in the next 4-6 days for the customs charge on my GSH Work bag from LVR.... SO....for all of you wondering .... that's the charge I'll pay for customs. I ordered my bag on August 1 and received it on Aug. 7th if that helps with the timeline The bag cost $1,480.89 from LVR with the customs charge that brings the bag to $1,638.89. Anyone care to compare that to BalNY cost of a Giant Violet Work? Is that about the same amount - I'm guessing that it's pretty close! I believe I saw a Giant Part-time on Diabro for nearly that amount! Anyway.. I'm happy with my bag and the service I received from LVR... so all is well with me!
