So I have spent the last half hour navigating a website entirely in Danish (pretty impressive for me since I only understand/speak a few words and have actually no formal training in the language). I'm trying to buy the 2010 Candleholder Set from Georg Jensen (to add to the others we have on our tree every year). The website I ordered the bulk of ours from does not have any candleholders this year. So I decided to go straight to the source - Georg Jensen's website. The US website dosen't carry the candleholders. So I went to the Danish site. I found them, put them in my cart and started the checkout process. Then I found out they won't ship to the US. So I tried the Canadian site, which was in English, but still won't ship to the US. The UK site has them, but they are out of stock so I couldn't even see if they would ship to the US (I doubt they would).
I'm frustrated that the US site doesn't sell the candleholders, but I'm sure there are very few people left in this country who would consider placing candles on a tree (and an even smaller number that would actually light them like we do). My BIL and SIL would also like a few more for their tree. My problem is trying to get them here.
I've got an email out via FB to one friend who lives in Denmark, to see if I can ship the order to her house and then have her ship it here.
Does anyone out there have a better suggestion or any idea of how to help?
