Awesome online stores in Australia?

Are there any?

I'm looking for something like Thinkgeek or FredFlare, ideally.

But any sort of store is good actually; list away.

The decidedly odd REMO General Store.

Zazz is one of those "daily deal" type things.

I was going to recommend REMO General Store as well.

I find their postage charges high, but otherwise they have some really interesting stuff.

I buy a fair bit from BrandsExclusive. They send me an email every morning listing sales and sell clothes, books, kitchenware - pretty much much anything & everything. It's invite only but if you give me your email, I'll send you one. Last night I bought my boyfriend 3 pairs of Lee jeans for $180 (instead of the $200 each they charge at General Pants).

I've had really good experiences with Warcom. As in, 'I ordered this yesterday afternoon and it's here this morning.' My most recent purchase was dead on arrival - one e-mail, support guy made a personal apology and sent a replacement.

Best answer: There are tons, but if you want Fred Flare-ish:
Via Alley
Hart & Heim

Almost forgot - for 'I can't believe that's legal, and it probably isn't in my state, and why didn't they have this when I was eleven' stuff: Global Gear.

ClearIt serves as an outlet store for Australian clothing brands like Alannah Hill and Princess Highway. I haven't bought from them online but I've been to their physical stores - they're legit and very good value.

Gleebooks is an independent bookstore in Sydney with a decent online operation.

It depends on whether you mean awesome for products you can't get anywhere else, or awesome for prices. For the latter, I tend to check out OzBargain. Not all of the things posted there are online, but it's a good place to find the odd cheap gadget or gizmo.

As far as products that are difficult to get otherwise, I like Art of Man for toiletries and shaving products. They stock lots of stuff I would have no idea where to get offline. I don't think they're particularly cheap, but they have great service (and really nice packaging) for an online store.

The Good Store has some interesting stuff.

Magnation, which also has bricks and mortar stores in Melbourne, I think, has a great online experience devoted to buying / subscribing to magazines.

Response by poster: These are amazing. BTW, can somebody explain REMO for me? Because I don't get it. :)
