Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Wow!!! Were we in for a shock on Friday. We went to UPS to ship one of our pots and found out that our box is now considered oversize inside dimensions 24 x 24 x 47 becomes outside dimenions of 25 x 25 x 48. This quadruples the weight of the box. 42 lbs becomes 168 lbs. It would cost $315 to ship an $80 pot to Ardmore, OK. If it were one inch less it would cost $167. The gentleman suggested we ship on greyhound. I did not know you could do such a thing. Greyhound will ship the same box for $64.20. We have changed our website to read local pickup only. So now we will continue to sell at shows and from our house. Oh well not everyone can be an entrepreneurr.
