    I just tried to order a large can of 505 Spray from Amazon for $15.60 and they jacked up the price with $18.00 shipping. I cannot find it locally and I use it all the time and am out. I tried to Google it, but those who were reasonably priced, tried to make up the difference with high shipping prices. I am in the US, so to charge $18 for less than 1# - 5 to 11 days for delivery is ridiculous.
    Any suggestions?

    Connecting Threads has the 6.2 oz can for $10.39 plus $3.29 for shipping but delivery is still 7-14 days because it has to go ground delivery. I guess you are trying to get a larger can but maybe this site will help.

    WAlMart has a basting spray that I have used & it's quite inexpensive and works just fine. CAn't remember what I paid for it, but I think it's Sullivan's brand. It was under $10.00 & no S&H, just sales tax. Do you have a WalMart near you?

    The WalMart brand in June Taylor and I really like it. I have been getting a 12 oz can for 7.97 but apparently they are going to the 10 oz can for the same price.

    connecting threads offers free shipping with $50 purchase!

    Try the Sew for Less website. The larger can is affordable.

    I get mine at Jo-Ann and use either the 40% or 50% coupon on it and it comes to $8.00 for a 15-ounce can.

    If you buy more than $50 from Connecting Threads they have free shipping.
    Fabric prices are great

    The Post Office does not accept aeresol cans for shipment. Most mail is moved via air and the pressurized can pose a hazard. So this spray has to go via ground transport. That could account for the excessive shipping charges -- perhaps a special carton and ground transport could be more costly because of handling at more transfer points.

    Lowes has their own brand. I used it to baste batting to my design wall. About $5 a can.

    I sprayed three quilts, 75x75 largest, with the small can. I have some left, but need more for two WIPs.

    I have used Elmer's water soluable spray glue. Much cheaper than the 505 I have used.

    Try Wal-mart.It may be a different brand, but it still works.

    The reason I have stuck with 505 is that it holds. Three months later I can quilt my sandwich and don't have to worry about it moving. Well worth the price. I just object to that darn high shipping charge. Our LQS usually sells it around $13.50 and doesn't charge extra freight, but they are out right now and I want to finish something before Thanksgiving.
