    Funny but Waterford stores in Malaysia are always going on sale...even my friends from Australia reckon that it is cheaper here in KL than in Melbourne...so I really wonder whethere it is any cheaper in UK at all.... Like I went to Vienna recently, I saw Swaroski crystals much more expensive than other parts of Europe - say Spain!!! and even in Australia...

    I'm not sure about the value, by the time you factor in the exhange rate, postage/packing etc. However you can visit the Waterford Crystal factory shop if you happen to be in that part of the country. They also sell cutlery, silverware, irish woolens and jewelery Orla

    Buying from the factory in Waterford, even including shipping etc, was much cheaper than buying in the US. I skipped the factory tour and just bought from the store. The prices at the factory were @ 40% less than what I would have paid in the US (this was 2001). Also, and more importantly, you can find items that you will never see in the US
