Some time ago - years, in fact - I got an email about a service which allowed UK residents to set up a PO box in the USA. If you wanted to order something from a company in the US which didn't offer international shipping, or charged an exorbitant amount for it, you could have it sent to your PO box and it would be forwarded to you.
I thought this was a great idea but couldn't afford it at the time. Now I've forgotten the name of the company, and it's the kind of thing that's hard to Google for. Anyone know of such a service?
Alternatively, would any of my Stateside chums care to take delivery of a scary furry UConn dog mask for me? I wish to frighten some grannies, and possibly hold up a post office :)
