I really do not like excessive shipping charges ... I've cancelled many orders because of that.

Shipping to Hawaii is also ridiculous with some companies. Some even consider Hawaii as international. Seems many don't know that Flat-rate Priority Boxes from the PO cost the same no matter what state they are going to. Shipping is the first thing I look at when I go to a website.

I have gotten up to 5 yards in a flate rate envelope for $4.90, they must want to keep their merchandise.

Many's the order I did not carry through on because of outrageous shipping! There's just no excuse for some of those exorbitant rates.
