dievca ordered items from her favorite Montreal, Quebec store ssense.com. The items were on sale and she had been watching them for awhile – the total came up to an amount over $800. She bought them in one batch….bad choice. Had she made two purchases, she wouldn’t have met the US/Canada Border Customs Threshold amount and she would have not had to pay customs….
Instead, she had to schlep to the Main Post Office to pay the customs to get her items. Yep, it was a significant amount = $400+. Why did she chose to pay it rather than refusing the items?
- They were items she thought about a long time before purchase.
- They were unavailable on sale anywhere else on the web.
- ssense.com offered to put a one-time 110-120% credit towards her next purchase (s).
- dievca buys on ssense.com consistently enough to use the credits.
Visualize dievca opening the box the items in the Main NYC Post Office, stuffing the items into a carryall so she could schlepp it all back to her apartment without her arms falling off. Would it have been easier if dievca had a car? Have you ever tried to find parking in Midtown?

Maryam L’Ange, Chloë Sevigny — “The Beckoning” (On Set)
In fact, I have been to coffee shops where the small wooden dowels with sugar crystals are offered as stirrers. Very sweet.
The jewelry offered by Arielle de Pinto is a combination of metal working and then carefully cultivated crystals grown on the metal structures. Gorgeous!
Two Rings which are exclusive to SSENSE from Canada:
The metallic chain pieces are pretty spectacular, as well.
Something to show your BDSM leanings in a subtle viewing of chains and collars.
