Ok so I think I've found that ordering from YesAsia looks like the cheapest way to get Japanese craft books to Australia. 

Their prices are cheaper in AUS$ than what I was paying for Japanese craft books I ordered through the Japanese store here in Melbourne before it closed down.  And also most items qualify for free shipping, as long as you spend over the minimum requirement which appears to be only US$25!

I've heard other craftsters reccomending the site, but was wondering whether any fellow Aussies have had any experience in getting anything from YesAsia shipped down to this part of the world? 

Did everything go ok and would you reccomend them?

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

oo! I hope they're good! There is a Kinokuniya in town and I could easily spend $1000 on craft mags there (and it wouldnt even go very far...)

Yeh, the books are more expensive at the Sydney Kinokuniya and also postage is about $8.50 to Melbourne for just one book - YesAsia seems like a much better deal!

I recently ordered a book, called Crochet Motif Item, from YesAsia.  It took a while to get to me, a little over a month, and postage was fairly expensive at $9.97 USD but it has such cute patterns I don't care! 
I blogged about it here:

Thanks for letting me know of your experience inkberry!  I don't really mind how long books take to get here  - as long as they arrive safely sooner or later!  Also I'm planning on ordering enough to qualify for the free postage Wink

I've ordered from there a couple times and I always take advantage of the free shipping! And now that our dollar is strong the books are cheaper than buying from amazon.jp

I've ordered four books from them and they were fantastic Smiley I got free shipping too and they arrived very quickly, I would certainly order again!

Ok thanks for all your feedback everyone - my first order arrived yesterday!  Four Japanese craftbooks all nicely wrapped & packaged and safe and soun Wink

I can't look at them yet though because they are being put away until Christmas Sad
