So I ordered 8 sets of LED branches from an eBay seller, because we had originally been planning 10 people per table = 8 tables + head table.
Now, it looks like we’re going to need more tables (and centrepeices) since 10/table is too tight.
And the only place I can find the same branches is Save On Crafts, which doesn’t ship to Canada.
Help! I need some know-how.

I used a site called Bongo International. Used this to order my wedding shoes. You have to sign up (I think it was like $5), and they give you a US address. Once your parcel gets to the US address, they ship it to you from there. The only thing that sucks about it is that you have to pay shipping twice. Was worth it for me though. Received my shoes faster than I thought considering they had to be shipped to two separate places.

@FutureMrsTimmins: how expensive was it, if I may ask? I was looking at their rates and it seems pricey.

I just checked, and I paid $57 to have my shoes shipped from the US address to my home address. Definitely is pricey, I agree. Plus that was only for shoes. I would guess that your branches would be more.

You could get them sent to a Post Office in Buffalo and then drive down and pick them up?

It’s the buffalo postal service. You basically ship your item to the address provided and pay $6 for them to hold the item. It’s a 5 minute drive from Rainbow bridge. My friends and I use their services all the time.

@Koreanna: I did something similar to this in Michigan when I lived in thunder bay. It was amazingly simple.

Definitely, use a PO box. I have done this in Buffalo and a few friends have done it in Detroit also.
