Hi all. I won a promotional $10 FabShopHop from Vintage Fabrics in California. Decided a good way to put the $10 to use was purchasing a Moda charm pack. They had some other promotions going on, believe it was 15% off any fabric and another 10% off the entire order. Wednesday, late afternoon CA time, I called to clarify, also wanted to specifically know their shipping rates and policies. Spoke with a real pleasant lady (believe her name was Linda). The GC was honored with no problem, as were any other promotions. She assured me she'd get my order right out. Well to my surprise Friday a.m. it was at the post office. They had charged me only $2.97 first class postage for two charm packs and a pattern. So kudos to Vintage Fabrics and also the USPO. Recently I waited for three weeks for the USPO to get a catalog from Rochester NY to central NY. Could have walked it there and back in that time.
So are these shops hoping you'll spend time and extra $$ in their shops when they give out small GCs......you bet. But in the spirit of fun and to reciprocate a bit, I have no problem.
