It is an overseas brand that makes hand made traditional outfits; dresses, dancing skirts, tote bags, beach wears etc. You can shop stylish prints from this store at affordable prices.

Also, there are lovely beach wears for your beach hangout. For a day out to the beach, a simple style inspiration is to wear loose tye-dye print from the store. This look can be completed with a pair of sandals and a tote bag also from Store333. If you’re one that doesn’t mind rocking cross cultural outfits. There are traditional Indian apparels e.g. crop tops with matching dance skirts.

How to shop, customer service and Shipping
For us in Nigeria, shopping overseas brands online though convenient is sometimes pricey. In most cases, the shipping prices may be way too much compared to the cost of your entire cart. I love shopping online overseas brands and sometimes the shipping fee scares me off. Store333 offers affordable shipping rates to any country. In other to shop easily on store333 to Nigeria, you need to keep the following in mind. Due to challenges of the brand to get express shipping to African countries, the check out option has been disabled for these countries. However, you can still shop from this site to Nigeria at a flat rate of 10USD. Your product will be delivered to you through post within 20-25days. Also you can check out their shipping policy to check other rates.
Their customer service is quite okay. They are very responsive especially through their whatsapp line available on the site. You can ask any question from this line as they are very helpful with whatever you want. Although, this depends on the time differences of your current location.
