    New Craftsy Mystery Box

    July's box is now on sale, $55. I would love to order it again but sadly the budget does not allow for it.

    Here is the link in case anyone wants to: http://www.craftsy.com/deals/july-quilt-mystery/923

    Saw this add and think its sounds like great fun - but $11.00 shipping is ridiculous. Why do these places go so cray on the shipping. It sure does not cost that to ship this thing

    I saw on here recently that someone (or maybe more) had been very unhappy with their mystery boxes.

    I do not like mystery boxes or grab bags. It always seams like I get something I really don't like! Wrong size, not age aproprate, hate the color, you get my meaning. Should have just donated cash would have saved time and shipping! LOL

    I ordered one and was happy but I know a couple were not. The boxes do vary by the amount of fabric, though they state is all priced the same.

    Are you trying to stir the pot???? I saw the ad on my FB page and I giggled! I'm still on the fabric diet so I won't be partaking once again. I have a friend coming in from Floriday and he will be here on Wednesday. I taught him how to sew and quilt a couple of years ago. I will be taking him to my favorite LQS and I just know I will not be able to resist once I enter and catch a whiff of that "new fabric" smell!!

    I've always had good luck with grab bags (Whittle's Civil War ones are fabulous!) but I remember several of the gals here weren't very happy with theirs last month. And I agree about the postage. Sometimes it makes the discount a moot point.

    I was very unhappy with the mystery box I purchased last month. I questioned craftsy about the value of what little merchandise I received and they finally responded with what they said was the market value of the items I received. I comparison shopped on line and could have purchased what I received for less than half of what I paid. I will avoid falling for the "mystery" deals from now on - my money can be better spent buying what I know I like. Good luck!

    I have to agree with Dixie Lee - the only thing keeping me from ordering one of these Craftsy deals is the out-of-whack postage costs. I recently ordered from Missouri Star for the first time (enabled by this Board, of course!) one of their daily deals - can't beat the $5.00 shipping! They just stuffed the fat quarters into a Flat Rate Envelope, which was fine - it is fabric, after all. I know Craftsy is trying to save on manpower by using the Flat Rate Boxes, but really... even if the deal is great, the shipping cost makes it not-so-great. Just my opinion.
