Shopping Detectives, find this boot or one similar? (Shipping problem)

So, I found a short boot I'd love to get, but nowhere that's stocking it will ship to Greece. Can you either find someplace that will (highly doubtful; I've searched a lot), or help me find one very, very, very similar? [more inside]

Cross-border buying/packing/shipping service?

I live in the Bay Area and often find myself wanting things, especially delicious location-specific foods, from stores in other cities that don't offer e-commerce and/or won't ship to me. (Example, example, example.) I want to pay someone --companies, individuals, I don't care-- to buy the things, pack them up, and ship them to me. This seems like it'd be a fairly common need/want, so someone must have set up a business offering it, right..?

I need to buy more of the jewelry things!

I'm getting a start making jewelry and am looking for suppliers for inexpensive beads and pendants. Most of what I've been using has been cheap stuff from Fire Mountain and I've been really happy with the stuff I've gotten for them in the 75 cents to 2 dollar range but am looking for more variety. I'm more interested in pendants and other focals than beads, but I'm addicted enough to the bead part that I'll look at sites that focus on those too :) [more inside]

how to know when spending more for free shipping is a good deal

Going to purchase something online. Shipping is expensive. A larger purchase will get me free shipping, but the cost would be more than the cost of the smaller purchase plus shipping. How do you analyze decisions like this? [more inside]

A good re-shipping service in the UK?

I've ruined two of my favourite shirts and am desperate for replacements from Uniqlo. Sadly, they won't ship outside of UK and I can't go right now. Can you recommend (or do you know of) a reliable UK service that I could use to forward my package to Finland? I've previously used Shipito with US-only vendors and was hoping for something similar.

Amazon Backorder Dilemma

I ordered this item from Amazon.com last month and when I ordered it, I noticed that the shipping date was September 28-October 29. That seemed a little weird so I contact Amazon and the rep just confused me more. Do you know the inner workings of Amazon? Can you explain this to me? [more inside]

There are some UK sites I'd like to purchase from but they don't ship here to the States. Anyone know of a workaround that doesn't involve personally knowing someone over there? Something like shopthestates.com, but for UK shopping...
