Well, one of my favorite pass times is finding items I like in stores and then searching for them on ebay. Being in a ski town full of ski clothing, we saw this great Dale of Norway sweater on a man and I tried on these ski boots. Even with the exchange, the cost of items in Canada is still higher (taxes business increases the prices and it is passed on to the consumer).
I found both of these items on ebay-- new w/tags and purchased them for 25% of the retail value! Both are returnable. Finally my husband has a Dale of Norway sweater and me, some new, comfortable ski boots.
