Wonders of the Sea

Post by bandaidstealer » Tue Jul 24, 2018 4:23 am

Apparently Wonders of the Sea is located a 2 minute drive from where I live... but it is online ordering only. I really don't want to pay their 17% shipping fees for something I could not only drive to, but walk or even ride a bike to. *sigh*

So disappointed. Their showroom pictures are amazing. What is the point of a showroom when you can't show it off to customers?

If you contact the owners they may allow you to pick it up in person... in Australia, businesses that run like that often make exceptions - saves on packing them and potential loss in mail/transit after all, plus happy customer!
