Does anyone know where i can find any bulk generic all temp wax in Australia

to put in persecptive we pay around 25-30 bucks for 150g standard all temp
http://stmonline.com.au/product_info.php?cPath=61_16&products_id=4497

and US pay about half as much
http://www.evo.com/wax/one-ball-jay-biogreen-hot.aspx... 12.50

but you can get 1lb block (~450g) for 20 bucks
http://www.bluebirdsales.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=54

paying freight for blocks of wax from states is rather expensive and negatates pretty much any saving you get....sure i can put in with existing order but i dont plan on buying anything anytime soon.

just wondering if anyone out there knows

Have you tried speaking to management in some stores and asking if you can buy bulk quantities at a discount? Loads of places can do things cheaper if you buy in bulk.. More than you may think.. so it might just be worth asking the question..!

i dont get along with most places LOL
i usually go in for a yarn most of the time but hardly buy any stuff from them

i try ...really i do
i look at gloves....140 bucks there...50 bucks online
i look at goggles....200 bucks there...50 bucks online
i look at boots....400 bucks there.....100 bucks online
i look at socks .....30 bucks there....10 bucks online

i end up buying socks cause i feel bad taking their time lol

when i say look ...i literally look...dont try on and stuff
i used to do that but not anymore....morally just feels bad using shops to try on things and purchase online

if i purchase online i take a punt most of the time

Haha, I don't blame you. I have my preferred places (the local ones who are all too willing to refer me elsewhere if they think somewhere else has something better) who do an awesome job. But the rest, I try and avoid. At least socks are useful... I always end up buying beanies.. I've lost count of the number I have now!

Not surprisingly, places are getting really suspicious of people just trying stuff on.. since so many people are trying locally and then buying off the net.

Have you had a look on Chain Reaction Cycles for wax? They now have a snow section, and do free postage on orders over $440 (changes depending on exchange rate).. The BF and I got over our quota in less than half an hour, so it's not hard to do! Their freight for orders <$440 seems fairly reasonable as well!
