Gals’ Street is a local website that sells apparels imported from Taiwan.
Some reasons why you should purchase from them:-
- Service is fast and efficient, the seller would definitely reply your emails within 24 hours and your package will be received within 3 working days upon receipt of payment.
- What You See is What You Get. There will definitely be no discrepancies on the apparels.
- Prices are affordable. Where can you find nice apparels that are sold between the price range of S$8 – S$27.90?
- Sale from S$8 onwards.
- Newbies at least once a month.
- And most importantly, the apparels are really gorgeous and fitting.
For the past few years, I have been purchasing my apparels from Gals’ Street. I don’t like to wait, I buy things on impulse. Once I set my eyes on something, I would definitely purchase it on the spot.
I detest joining sprees after having some bad experience with some of the sellers. Of course, joining sprees would definitely save up a lot. If anyone has any websites to introduce please let me know. They mustn’t be scammers of course bigsmile
And I digress.
