Hello. I plan on making a few purchases from a website I find kinda sketchy.
Here is the link to the site along with the 2 items I want:
Link: http://www.funkyfashion.com.au/
Item 1: http://www.funkyfashion.com.au/index.php?route=product/product&path=76_86&product_id=404
Item 2: http://www.funkyfashion.com.au/index.php?route=product/product&path=76_86&product_id=419
I cannot find these unique items anyplace else, but I also can't find a review or anything based on this site. I've been Googling some stuff up based on this site. All I found is that the site owner or the server itself is in Sydney Australia, the site is 45 years old ( o-0 ) It's ticket expires in 1-1-1970 (o.o) ...
I need some help determining weather or not to buy from these people.
Their " About Us":
About Us
This is the original Funkyfashion website that has been bringing you the latest trends in Gothic, Punk and Lolita fashion and accessories since 2000.



Our mission is to seek out the latest and coolest trends from Asia and Europe and bring them to you in Australia. We are constantly on the look out for the best mix of freaky, cute, quirky and just plain awesome bags and accessories. You can always count on us to find the best gifts or just a cool bag for yourself. We have gothic bags and quirky accessories for the teens up to adults (who are forever young).
If they have been up since 2000, how come I can't find anything based on their sales?
I really really want these two items. But, how can I trust them...?
All help is appreciated and thanks for those who are typing to help me out. :)
EDIT: Hope not to have made this in the wrong thread... Sorry if I did...

It's ticket expires in 1-1-1970
Thursday, January 1st, 1970, at 00:00 is a special time, it's the date of the epoch. Basically, midnight of that day is represented as zero. For every second after that, one is added to that zero. Right now (as of writing) the time since the epoch is 1,448,508,365 seconds. What I'm getting at is that 1-1-1970 is just a placeholder, or possibly even a default; it has no meaning/value.

As for how trusty the site is, I got nothing. Couldn't find anything about the company, no reviews elsewhere (no good, no bad), but that's more-so because I'm lazy and didn't look that much, not because it doesn't exist (necessarily). If I have any say, though, the site looks genuine (doesn't mean it is, it just doesn't feel mysterious nor scam-y) and the lack of a commenting/review system may just be that they don't want spam (or they never implemented one).

Best of luck on your journey of finding more info, though.

Ok, remember that to check if a site is trust worthy or not, you have to see for "Where do they talk about it?", or "How is it?" by word of mouth, I used a site price checker to see how worthy was this page, and as of 26/11/2015, it's worth 768$, now you might say, "Hey, that doesn't sound, too bad for a website, right?".

Well, it definitely is, compared to nds-card.com which scored more than 4000$, and has relevance (as well trust worthy sellers) this page you're describing has Zero Social Media references, Zero Social Media mentions, and to put matters worse, it scored -1 in the Alexa Rank, -1 means that the site is either way too new for it, or it is just plain straight lying, while the worth of it is quite high for a page where you sell things, specially from the Gothic matter, is still quite low compared to a Flashcard website, where the latter also has mentions from social references.

So the final thing is, should you trust them?, quite hard to say, their statistics aren't mentioning nothing, like, you can't find answers or questions regarding this web on the Internet, and i only said about the Alexa Rank and Site's Worth as "assumptions" rather than true facts, so what can you do on the first place?, buy something extremely cheap if you're confident enough (Like, the article with the lowest price) + shipping, if it turns out to be the real deal, go for more expensive articles, however, if nothing happened, leave them as it is.

Due to the currency from Australia to Canada, I'll be buying both products. If it doesn't arrive or if it doesn't get transacted from my bank account, we'll all know. ( Not like this site is popular or anything... ) I'll let people know this site is down/scammy.

You have. Thank you. I can only assume it might be legit, considering I can't find these products anyplace else...

You're welcome, I ain't no expert on online stores, but i have some experiences with them so i know how to evaluate them from the most basic parts at least, I hope it's legit, and that you can finally have what you want for!.

  • Minox @ Minox:
    Worst case even just spaghetti will give you quite a bit of energy even without anything extra
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Uh oh spegetios
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Half a pound of ground beef can go for like $4 alone here
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    With meatballs!!! Was on sale the other day I got 2 cans for 1.25 lol
  • Minox @ Minox:
    I see 0.78usd spaghetti that would surely be enough for a few meals
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    It's processed shit but at least it can make you believe it's there
  • Minox @ Minox:
    Fry a bit of minced meat with some onions and tomatoes and you have a decent enough meal
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    And all the ingredients would still cost you more
  • Minox @ Minox:
    Would they though? Make a decent enough batch and eat for a few days and it'll even out
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Depends on inflation rates like I said half a pound of ground beef here is like $4 vs 4 cans for $4 that's processed
  • Minox @ Minox:
    To make it even more economical you can add more vegetables
  • Minox @ Minox:
    That is, change the ratio of meat to vegetables
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    But still more you'd spend but whatever floats your boat
  • Minox @ Minox:
    I highly doubt that'd be the case, but maybe no need to continue this argument
  • Minox @ Minox:
    It seems like we both don't want to :P
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    No argument theirs just ways to save and we don't always think about grand totals
  • Lycanroc @ Lycanroc:
    Heya
  • Lycanroc @ Lycanroc:
    Btw I think the chatbox is broken on mobile, pressing enter does nothing, and there's no separate button to send
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    You need to have the cursor at the
    start of the sentence already let Costello know about it new updates means new bugs
