Through EBAY. Has anyone had any experiance with buying from EBAY? This seller has had 98% positive feedback and her account is an online store. I think I can trust this. But have never bought something from EBAY and esp not from America.
I have had an answer on my email from her. I asked her about shipping costs (I live in the Netherlands) and measurements (because we use cm instead of inch)
i have bought a lot with ebay although I usually use paypal and it has protetion with it up to a point. I have only had a problem once and paypal helped get it sorted.
The one thing you will want to figure out is how much customs in your country is going to charge and the seller will not know that. I have bought items off ebay from US and I live in Canada and had to pay huge customs charges once I recieved the item. Although occassionally i have recieved from us and not paid customs fee.
I purchased my wedding gown on ebay from seller december94 (i think). She had 100% feedback and could confirm that the dress was an authentic Casablanca and not a replica (there are a lot of replica sellers on ebay!)
The experience was great. It took 5 months to get the dress (typical for Casablanca, as they are made to order).
I say if you do your research and know how to tell what you're getting, go for it! I never would have been able to afford my dress if I didn't find it on ebay!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

Wow what a beautiful dress! I don't think I have ever seen it before, so pretty!
Anyways, if the seller has a good rating, make sure to check how many business transactions he/she has done. If they have lots of customers, then those ratings are probably accurate.
I would also make sure to ask about the RETURN POLICY. This is very important. If you don't like the dress, you may want to make sure you can turn it back. (Unless you have tried the dress on in person and know what it looks like already)
If you are uncomfortable trying to buy it off ebay, search for it on the pre owned wedding dresses website. I am sure ebay is rather legit though
