such a drama in Canada with their customs. No for Australia, the following applies:
Australian Customs wrote:
Goods with a declared or assessed value not exceeding A$1,000

If your goods arrive in Australia by mail and have a declared or assessed value of A$1,000 or less, the goods may be imported free of duty, taxes and Customs and Border Protection charges, unless they are alcohol products or tobacco products. Apart from alcohol and tobacco products those goods will be cleared by Customs and Border Protection and delivered by Australia Post without you doing anything.

Ugh, unfortunately my reply is very late, but whatever. I guess you decided to keep your collection and I highly approve that. Smile I think CD's you bought are good memories and it's interesting to look back in a few years and realize how much your taste in music actually changed. I was such a sucker for J-Rock and Visual Kei a few years ago and I still kept all my CD's of my favorite bands from back then, even though I started to despise this kind of music. Also, who knows, maybe you'll get interested in them again? Wink

I agree with most other posters. I wouldn't sell them. On eBay they aren't fetching a whole lot of money and the sentimental value is far higher, especially if Ai-Chin stays inactive and no new video products are produced.

Hang on to them, otherwise you will regret it later on.


+ infinity!


Except, I would die if she is remains inactive. I am happily conviced that she won't, though.

The method I use is gift option. I purchase my items, they get sent to my friend (my middleman lulll). Customs slips will always check it as "GIFT" as the option, and so far its working for the past three years.
What I find about Canadian customs is that they don't like EMS. I remembered that I ordered a DVD from HMV Japan, they mailed it with Japan EMS, and I get charged.


A friend of mine received a birthday package once from someone living in the States. And even though it said gift, she still had to pay some tax for it.

Again, the different name is a theory that my friend has. I wonder too if the Canadian tax system is similar to Australia. They must have the rule written up somewhere for the public to see.

It seems you really enjoy colecting those things, most importantly, the sale just to have enough money to replace it with something else, it is not worth it all...

I would never sell any of my CD's... I have only 6 CD's from Ai so far, but I have two more on the way. = ) In total I have something around 280 CD's.

But only the person her or himself can decide what to sell and what not to.
