You have to sign in to curlmart to get the shipping rates. I've experimented (not actually ordered from the UK before), and shipping to the UK is about $50-60. It's only worth it if you order a PILE of stuff.

Customs-wise, I think the current rules say you can order up to 100 worth of stuff before they start levying VAT and customs charges and stuff.

I wouldn't call it a bad idea - just an expensive one. As I say, it's worth the shipping if you buy a load of stuff.

Two ideas: 1. Perhaps talk to whoever owns/runs Carol's Daughter and ask about international shipping? Sometimes people are willing to do a one-off. 2. Talk to Keisha Jo at British Curlies Curl Emporium - she may be able to get CD there!
