On-Line Delivery Complaints
This year I heard a lot more complaints about bad customer service and awful delivery stories for gifts ordered on-line.
If you want to guarantee that a package arrives from Amazon in less than two weeks, definitely don't choose free shipping.
I ordered two supposed Christmas gifts and a few books from Amazon on December 11th, and they finally arrived yesterday...the day after Christmas.
Fortunately, I was able to purchase one of the gifts at the mall on Christmas Eve day (a nightmare) and the other one wasn't that important.
My sister-out-of-law also noted that she will never order from Brookstone again based on her gift ordering experience.
I order a lot of my gifts on-line, and I've had some issues in the past, but this year seems to have a lot more problems than usual.
I finished the Alpaca Herd Jacket this past Saturday. I ended up being at an AC Moore, and picked up buttons that worked very well.
I the sleeves were longer than I'd hoped, so I ended up removing the decorative finish I had originally intended, and just used a roll-edge.
The sweater is very heavy, but also incredibly warm and oh so soft. I will be wearing this sweater often.
Teresa writes, "he jacket is just gorgeous and I hope you find buttons soon, but what is the status on your tablecloth?"
I picked it up again after thinking that I had removed all the messed up motifs. I started re-crocheting the ripped out ones, and it appears I didn't fix all the incorrectly set stars...ugh!
