    do you think that some lqs's and online companies are selling names even though they promise not to? times are tight for them all and every penny helps.

    sometimes i think they all do it. my husband gets every fishing and handyman catalog there is and he only buys locally.

    I do believe that they sell their lists. You must read to find out where they give you the option to not be included in other mailings. Gotta always read the small print!
    I finally do not get miscellaneous catalogues. My friends share theirs, and I don't miss having the extras here.

    :roll:

    listen to this: i just spoke about this to a friend and she told me that when she orders newsletters and catalogs she uses a different first name each time and keeps track. that way she knows who is giving out her name and won't deal with them anymore. the same for mag subscriptions. she tells them it's a gift for a friend (it's really for herself with a fake name) and then she is the one who recieves the trash even tho 'someone else' is paying. did i just garble that info?


    it's no joke. think of all the trees they're felling for nothing! not to mention cluttering the post office and my mailbox.


    :lol:

    Haven't bought any fabric/quilting supplies online. And I haven't signed up for any catalogs lately...I used to get some from Keepsake Quilting and Fire Mountain Gems, but I stopped getting them a while ago. And until now I wasn't getting any catalogs that I didn't sign up for so that's why I thought maybe someone on here had signed me up for a couple. I don't really mind because I actually like getting craft/art catalogs for inspiration (and I hardly get mail anyways so its kind of nice to get something once in a while). I was just curious as to where it might be coming from.
