Since aliexpress have decided to go the way they have and make it difficult for people selling nice replica products, what other sites are people using to shop from?

 

Ive had a bit of a look thru DH gate and they have stuff, like the de-shedding brushes that have all but disappeared from aliexpress I guess at the request of the furminator.

Had a bit of a look at it in the past and forgot about it. Will have a look a bit later.

Out of curiosity, rich, could you please expand on the problem with Aliexpress as I don't get the message in your first post. 

 

Obviously, I am not an Aliexpress expert like you!

I've not heard/read anything about this. What things are they cracking down on? Might make your search for an alternative purchase place easier.

Try to find a fake handbag or shoes or even a replica watch on there now - all gone. They have even come out in public saying that they are cracking down on them.

You can still buy pedobear costumes on there though... my guess is the fakes will reappear soon enough, as soon as whoever they're currently trying to appease with their "crackdown" goes away.
