    Anyone used virtualvillage.co.uk to order stuff?

    This would be for me, hence why it's in general rather than recommended suppliers.

    I'm both pleased and slighty scared by a site that sells wedding dresses alongside tattoo machines and motorbike parts (300+ different farings), so I thought I'd ask the hivemind.

    Are they legit? They don't have that "everything for a pound shop" vibe, but it just seems too good to be true.

    I did a quick Google search for 'Virtualvillage.co.uk reviews' and the general consensus seems to be 'steer clear' but there are few reviews out there to gain a proper idea. What are you trying to buy?

    If you're buying something big and/or expensive I would run away from a site I'd never heard of. Good sites generally get a shedload of reviews and mentions and a google search for reviews would bring in plenty of feedback. The very absence of feedback in this case would send me running.

    They trade on ebay apparently so it might be an idea to look up their user profile and have a look through the user reviews.

    Niche hard-to-find-if-you're-not-in-America electronics parts. Not expensive, just difficult to source in .uk.

    I've used a similar company called door2doorshop.com that sells some really varied stuff. I bought a Peugeot diagnostic and fault clearing tool on the 16th and it arrived a week later.
