I get it shipped for free so it’s not like I would sell and then re-buy stuff here but I get your point. We did identify a lot of stuff that is not worth shipping and we will just re-buy here as needed. And I thought about getting rid of everything and filling the container with iPhones and laptops or something like that. Ikea is priced near dead on, it’s joined furniture that is tough to get a grasp of.
I have a friend who years ago went on an ex-pat mission to France and the policy was they would ship all his stuff to France, record the weight, and when he came home, they would ship the same weight back. He filled the unneeded space with junky appliances and before coming home, filled the equivalent weight from Parisian furniture markets.

Sell such ovens to desperate Westeners
Make a profit here and not worry about what furniture to buy. With the earnings, you can have jade incrusted, Qing dynasty copies made to your specifications by Sanyi artisans.
Anyways, IKEA’s website for comparison: ikea.com.tw/chi/main.html
Yep, why don’t you make a sample list of what you want to ship here, and then we can tell you if it’s worth shipping or better buy here? Edgar gave a good example.[/quote]
