Goods sourced from outside the United States 🇺🇸 or the United Kingdom 🇬🇧

While you can easily source goods from China or other countries that will deliver to our warehouses, we will not insure them and we do not recommend purchasing such since the delivery dates can be long and sometimes not trackable.
Such goods are often of inferior quality and lack sufficient information to meet standards set forth by KEBS. They are likely to be rejected and we are not liable for such goods.
