    My frist time posting. After reading about the experiences some have had with sales pepole I thought you might you would like to hear mine.A little while ago someone posted the site purse-onatitiesofpalmharbor, I check it out and what beautiful patterns for handbags.I wanted some of those petterns, placed a order of $94 and went to checkout. Wow what a suprise I got ,the shipping to Canada was $68, can you beleive that. I realy wanted those patterns but I couldn't pay $68 in shipping.I sent a message and stated very nicely that the pattern were very lovely but I couldn't pay that much in shipping and was there a cheapier way to sent them.Guess what, the next day I got a e-mail from Linda of purse-onatities.She agreed it was way to much and to let her know what I wanted and she would not charge me any shipping. After a few freindly e-mails my order was in the mail with no shipping charges. She was happy that I brought it to her attention and they are working to correct the problem and I am happy too. I will have my patterns and will be making bags for xmas gifts Oh yes. Buy 3 and get 1 free. If you are looking for patterns for handbags chech out site. Thanks for reading

    I wonder how many sales she lost because she didn't check her website and probably wouldn't have if you hadn't alerted her. I'm glad you got free shipping but at least a free pattern would have been the best customer service for your service.

    Glad you didn't just let it go and not notify her. Happy it worked out for you and hopefully it will increase her sales.

    AWESOME!

    And I like SO much that she was willing to listen, instead of "That's our policy, I'm sorry you're unhappy!"

    it is always good to talk or write if you have a problem keep it polite but to the point and it will nearly always end up well. only a few would tell you #&#@! where to go.
    I would have bucked at that price to even posting to Australia

    It is great to know that there are still kind and understanding people in the world. I just won a few ebay auctions from one seller and didn't find out that they won't combine shipping. $47 in shipping for 3 rubber stamps. The seller claims that the shipping charges cover their cost plus shipping. Why not just put the real amount you want paid instead of sneaking it into the shipping.

    That was a wonderful experience for you. However I just wonder how many buyers never contact the business when they are concerned about the shipping charges. In my experiences when I've called a business regarding shipping they are more than happy to listen and see if they can lower the cost or even change the method of shipping for me.
    No one wants to lose business in these times and a friendly call politely questioning what the shipping charges are has always resulted in a big plus for me and a plus for them with a return customer. This applies to anything I buy over the internet. I am so happy you took the time to call and speak with them before you wrote them off. It's all to easy to get discouraged and frustrated when most times all it takes is that phone call to help yourself and them.

    Thanks for sharing your story! I agree that there are a lot of good people out there. I also think if you contact people calmly and pleasantly you often get surprises!!
    Have fun sewing!!!!!!! :D

    that is a great story! customer service is quickly disappearing, in my opinion, (except for certain high end stores). all it takes is a little bit for customer satisfaction. i buy by price AND customer service. what she did to help you can really boost her business.

    What a great story! I always feel for the people outside the US, seems like everything is so expensive. I appreciate the sites that tell you when you can ship more for the same price. It improves their sales and cuts my costs. Most customer service is really a win win situation.
