    As some of you may know, I paint watercolours, but I've wanted to broaden my interests and since my late Best Friend and I wanted to learn how to paint silk scarves, I decided this would be a good time to try my hand at it. It seems my watercolour techniques come quite close to what I'll be doing with fabrics.

    I went on the website and just picked out a couple of different scarves as my first order which came to about $10 without taxes, and when the CP shipping charge came to just over $16, I was floored!!!
    So, I emailed them and complained about that charge and received a response almost immediately letting me know that yes, that's an overcharge and that they're trying correct that 'app' in their system, but for now, he suggested I phone in my order to receive the proper shipping charge, which should be about $3 or so which is absolutely reasonable. Not only that, he also let me know that after I register on that site I'd receive a $5 shipping coupon!

    So all in all, I went from gasping for air, to very satisfied with the service I received. My inks/dyes will cost more in shipping because of course they're a bulkier item, but I'm guessing not in that $16 neighbourhood!

    I'd like to drop in when we're in TO in June when my DH has his check-up at Women's College hospital...cha-ching, I bet!! It's so much easier to make purchases when one can feel the different qualities of the scarves and everything else that goes with them!

    Anyhoodles...just fyi..

    I cannot remember now which sites but I have been on a few browsing, loading up my " cart " with half decent items and then exited very fast once I saw that the shipping outpriced what I had bought! ha ha So glad your issue was handled with some decent CS.
