AliExpress - My Initial Thoughts

I've always steered clear of AliExpress, it looked a bit too good to be true. Anyway, I wanted a few fishing bits and know that what I would have bought would have been made in China and then sold on eBay or Amazon so thought I'd bite the bullet and give it a try.

Obviously, things that are shipped all the way from China will take a while to arrive, it is a long way so that is a perfectly reasonable thing to expect. My needs were not urgent and the initial estimate of 6-12 weeks caused me no problem.

I was rather surprised when I got a notification yesterday, a mere 5 days after ordering that I would get an Evri delivery today. Admittedly only part of the order but just 6 days after ordering it is sitting here in front of me, amazing.

I will wait until the rest arrives and still have my 12-week expectation and that is still no problem to me. After that, I'll have a proper look at it all to see if it is a sensible way to make future purchases.

Anyway, today it has made me smile. I think I'll go and chuck it in the sea and try to pull out a fish, that would be the icing on the cake.
