So, as I shared last week, I have started the "next up for me"
Crabapple Hills' "Gardener's Alphabet" quilt...
and as I didn't have all the flosses I needed for the project,
I found a nice shop online to order some of them.
I had not ordered from this shop before, but they had a whole lot of nice stuff!
I was so excited when the package arrived!
I spent just over $30. for the flosses.
Add $5.45 for shipping.
That makes a grand total of $38.00.
I opened the package with such anticipation!
And this is what I found:
I was so disappointed...
There seems to have been no care given in packaging or presentation.
Almost forty of my hard earned dollars.
and it looks like a wadded up mess.
(It was packed in plastic, with a business card thrown in.
And the whole thing was mailed in a bubble-wrap lined envelope.)
But, am I being too wanting or needy?
Are my expectations set too high?
WHAT happened to making the customer feel special?
It wouldn't have taken much to make this order "special" .
Just by taking the time to lay the floss skeins beside each other.
Maybe a little piece of tissue or a little piece of curling ribbon...
And I know the cost of shipping has gone up, but this weighed only TWO OUNCES!
and, $5.45 for shipping seems just a tad high.
So, I'm just a little disenchanted.
I think I'll send off an email and let the online shop know my disappointment.
And that I had to immediately take them all out and straighten them:)
Am I the only one "OUT HERE" that would like a little nice-ness when I spend my money?
I can't wait to start stitching with them,
so I still say, nice threads!
