Getting international shippings through customs and has been a lesson in patience. We shipped two parcels to ourselves before leaving the US. Aside from the exorbitant cost on the US side, duties were also owed on the Portuguese side - which is expected.

But the process is very disjointed and communication between the various parties is out of sync.


At least my wife's purses arrived here undamaged and unchallenged by Portuguese customs. If they had challenged that valuation we might have had to drop them into the harbor.
