Hi! My DH and I live in remote WA and have nowhere locally to buy baby items from.

I will be able to buy a pram and smaller things when I leave town to actually have our baby (no OB services at our local hospital) but I don't really want to drive 2 days to Perth to buy furniture for the nursery.

Can you recommend any sites that offer reasonable shipping and good package deals for nuresery furniture??

Thanks in advance original.gif

HI there, we are in remote NT. I searched high and low online for shops that delivered but didn't charge an arm and a leg for shipping.  We ended up getting a furniture package from ebay that included the shipping ( crazy people!!!) it cost us $900 but included, cot, cot mattress, change table, chest of drawers. I did a big order for clothes and bits and pieces through Target ($9 shipping) and deals direct (free shipping to SOME locations but still quite reasonable). I had a list of things i needed and checked off as i got them. Also sign up to Mumgo, brands exclusive, but things take longer through them but you could grab a bargain. We have a local FB site that sells different things so got quite a bit locally through other people - do you have something similar?

For clothes you can buy bonds stuff direct from their website and it is free shipping to most of Aus!
Also Ozsale is the same as brand exclusive above but again can take a while to get delivered.  Also sign up to Mum's Grapevine, they send weekly newsletters and often have online sales and deals?
Good luck
