click- whirr - bing - memory kicks in - lightbulb goes on
I just remembered back when I was a kid and our church was sending clothes somewhere overseas. If I remember things from 40 years ago correctly - there was little or no import tax on used clothes but a big tax on new clothes. So, we took the new clothes, washed/dried/folded them unironed, and thus they became "used".
Maybe importing a "used" mixer would also be cheaper? Would be worth someone checking out the import laws.
