If buying overseas, beware that custom fees are sometimes added, this was not obvious to me and apparently most buyers on their first purchase. Hopefully EBAY may make it more obvious than it is at the present, so that when purchasing an item $101 (including US $29 post and packaging) you then find uk post & customs fees, it costs about $129 ( total fees $58!). The other thing to point out is electrical items have some problems abroad. We purchased a pair a Hair tongs (Irons) but on receipt from the US the instructions advised " not to be used with an adapter". So the item should again have pre warned overseas purchasers.   Thanks for listening.
