I happen to have a large collection of designer bags. Some will come with me but the rest will shipped on the container. Am I going to have problems with customs - there are about 50 or so and they are mine tht I use but will customs question whether I am planning on selling them? Which I am not. Do I have to bring receipts? The problem is of course I don't have all the receipts. The funny thing is most of the bags I have were purchased in Singapore and Hong Kong!!

Do I have to worry?

You should ask the Singapore Customs directly. Their website is at
http://www.customs.gov.sg/topNav/hom/

Their email contact should be on their webpage somewhere.

Hey luvnyc,

I brought over all my designer gears too. No problem at all. I did not need to declare anything and the customs did not question. Good luck!
