I found some beautiful eyelet- its all the rage in the US and the warmer climates at the moment, I was thinking of making a sweet but work approiate dress out of this eyelet. I asked Mood Fabrics via their website for a shipping quote on this Marc Jacobs eyelet and almost fell off my chair when I got the email back.
It was $220-$240 USD! Now admittedly I also put in 3 yards of dotted swiss/cotton and 3 ponte which I put in for the sake of it but geeze golly whiz batman for 9 yards, thats ridiculous!
I asked what was the cheapest option and Christina told me that was it! Meg then contacted me saying once they get there new website up and running the cost may be lower. While I'm looking forward to the new site its at least 6 months away, and pretty fabric doesn't stick around that long.
I shop online regulary and have never come across such a high price. I worked out that if I saved $2001.22 I could just fly over there and pick it up. Come to think of it, that might not be a bad idea....
What would the highest you would ever pay for shipping?
