I'm interested in recommendations for online stores that sell baby products & equipment.
I'm particularly interested in overseas stores that ship to Australia however any store in Aus that has great stuff would be helpful. Maybe mention what items they sell and approximate shipping cost.
If there's a good response, perhaps we can get it created as a sticky for future reference.

ohh i've done way too much online shopping lately...
usually used australian stores though, bonds website when bub was born as i didnt' have enough 0000 stuff (and i could finally buy the right colour!)
baby kingdom is good in store or online. i've found macy's is good for clothing but they send to australia via a third party and you end up paying a lot in postage, i think $60 for about $150 worth of clothing last time.
hellocharlie.com.au is great, and good customer service as well. online chat is available and they actually called me when something i ordered was out of stock and helped me choose something else.
a few US stores won't ship to Australia but you can find some of their stuff on amazon.
i used fishpond.com.au at christmas but i started getting spam soon after and i'm just not confident about them.

Baby Village in Australia have always served me really well , great customer service and everything has been delivered fast . Sign up to the emails to get sales/discount info .
Overseas has got a lot more difficult as some companies just wont let stores ship their items here any more
Baby on the Run in the US ships here , contact by email can either be super quick or non existant though . Rick owns the shop (has a FB page too) He uses another company to ship (larger ?) items . I have just bought a double stroller off Ebay from them too which I think is a new thing they are doing.
Babyshop in Europe will send accessories (but not prams) plus they have some cute clothes , nappy bags ect . Shipping is pretty good.
BabycareNL also ship accessories .
Amazon but as the pp said some things can not be shipped directly.

I shop at www.bambinipronto.com.au far too often. They often have a sale, sell great things and very reasonable prices with postage only $5.

Another one recommending baby on the run. Fabulous service, and even factoring in $200 for postage, I STILL saved money on our pram.

I have just bought a toddler mattress from UK baby mattress ...another here is babycarenursery.com.au
Baby- bedding .com.au - had best price on bubba blue stuff
Bonds online I did mothercare.com.au but sadly no more
Still waiting on baby gap.com to lower shaping costs or I go with friends and share freight...
eBay stores ...really I do most shopping online and have not had any issues ....
I usually do a price compare when I need a specific item like a new car seat and hen check out the vendors

I have just been recommended tesco.com
I have only looked at the baby wear and haven't purchased anything yet, but the prices are very good and shipping is free to Australia when you purchase over £50, which is approx $75.
