The Aussie Dollar is contunuing its relentless advance in value whilst the US $ continues to slide against almost everything. There was a time when a US Dollar earnt me about AU$2 but now it is about $1.04 after bank charges etc and much of this movement has been in the past few months.
There are all kinds of reasons for these trends which seem likely to continue for a while at least.
The result for me is that my sales in US$ are netting me fewer and fewer Aussie $ every day and unfortunately my suppliers (and my local supermarket) will only accept the Aussie variety when I pay my bills.
So I am reluctantly forced again to raise my US$ prices on my website to avoid going backwards.
My prices are still significantly better than on most international sites and I offer a personal service that none of the 'big boys' can even dream of!
I have, however, found one US based site that is pretty competetive on price for the basic Blundstone styles and I encourage you to check their prices out, especially if you live in one of the 48 states of the Continental USA to which they offer free shipping (AK and HI residents have to pay extra and they won't ship to any other countries*). See below.
My aim is to get you a good deal - not sell to you at any price and it's horses for courses so check them out.
*By the way, there is a great new service that will allow residents of India, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia to buy from websites like the one above that will only deliver to US addresses - eventually this great service (or similar ones) may be available to those of you from other parts of the world. It is simple, clever and cheap and comes from a very reputable company. Check out https://www.vpostasia.com/
