IMHO, online shopping calls for a sense of humor and acceptance of the inevitable. In general, I am a big fan – it’s entertaining, doesn’t cause fatigue, and, most of the time, I find something wonderful, needed or not. I admit that Amazon Prime has expanded my horizon in ways I never imagined…
To share a couple of funny experiences this week:
(1) I recently placed an online order with Mood Fabrics, 4 woven fabrics, $108, received the email confirmation and a tracking number – but the order doesn’t appear in my account. I sent a couple emails to their support desk, but no response. Kind of bugs me…
(2) Sometimes the picture is not what you get. I ordered this double-brushed poly from Fabric.com to make leggings:
And received this very large print instead! It happens that I like it, so I kept it 🙂
The tunic pattern is also a surprise. I had New Look 6323 in my stash for about 6 years, but tossed it when I lost some of the pieces. Subsequently I could not find a replacement anywhere online. Shopping in Walmart last week, I found it in the sewing section, re-branded. Whoopee!
