    Has anyone ordered from Tropical Quilts. They had a sale and I thought they were going out of business. I looked at their website today and all of the sale prices are gone and the regular prices are back up. I ordered from them and I'm wondering what's going on.

    I ordered from them and got an email from them stating that they got an overwhelming response to the sale and that shipping was delayed up to a week! I guess they changed their mind about retiring...

    I don't know how I feel about this. It's misrepresentation to say you're liquidating and then return everything to regular price. I ordered on the phone and she said they couldn't ship before this past Saturday. I may call tomorrow and if she hasn't sent it I may cancel.

    I also ordered and got the delayed a week email. It said nothing about being out of stock. If they haven't gone out of business, I got a good deal, but may not order from them again. Because I didn't really need fabric right now, but it was a good price and I will always use it. And I do hope I get all that I ordered.

    On the site yesterday she had a notice to let her know if you would be interested if she offered marbles and something else so maybe she got a lot of responses.
    I'm glad I got what I did of the $2 fabric.

    It is possible that someone else has taken over the business. Often times when a business is for sale, they will liquidate what they can and then the new owner makes an offer for the remaining lock, stock & barrel.

    I've emailed this lady and she explained that she has only a small quilt shop and had emailed their regular customers about the sale. She hadn't expected anyone to post it on a public forum. Needless to say they have been overwhelmed. She say she will email me when they get to my order to let me know what they have of the fabrics I ordered. She also gave me the option to cancel my order.
    Hope this puts everyone's mind at rest.

    Sorry. I didn't order from them. Confused with somewhere else.

    I got the same email saying mailing would be delayed. I did not get a message that the items I ordered were out of stock.

    Has anyone noticed how wide spread across the U.S. alone have ordered from company? Just goes to show what the four letter word SALE can do.
