I ordered from them on Jan. 3 and didn't get anything.  I have emailed with
no response, called an out of service phone number, and can't find ANY phone
number on their web site.  Does anyone know if this store is still in
business - or what!  Thanks,

Yeesh ... according to their shipping policies, your order will be shipped
between (and I quote) 1-6 weeks. How's that for a heckuva spectrum???

Re: does anybody know about this shop?
6 weeks???
holy smokes, sounds like if she doesnt have it in stock, she orders it from the
country of origin and waits til it arrives.
if this is the case, she should email the customer immediately to let the
customer decide if they wish to wait.
also she should not charge for the purchase until she receives it and remails it
to the customer.
not having a phone number that works or replying to emails about the order is
really really bad business practice imo.
i dont know how long she has had to reply to the email tho.
sure makes the hairs on my neck stand up tho.
i hope you hear something soon.
oh yea, i think her name is cathy from the link i sent on reverse addys.

Yeah, but it's the no contact that has me miffed.

Re: does anybody know about this shop?
True ... I'd be awfully miffed, too. I don't know why they're not answering
you ... when did you contact them?? If it's been longer than a week (without
a response), I'd file some sort of complaint with PayPal. PayPal's awfully
good at getting answers. Where they might not talk to you (I'd not do
business with them again, if I were you - but that's just me), they WILL
talk to PayPal. If they want their money, they will!!!

If you did it through PP, you should have heard *something* from them - even
if only a shipping report. PP makes it so easy to ship goods, it's scary.

Re: does anybody know about this shop?
Let's see.  I ordered on the 3rd.  I emailed them about 12 days later.  Five
days after that I tried calling.  Then the same day I emailed them through
PayPal.  Three days later I escalated it to a PayPal claim.  PayPal said it
may take a month for them to get some answers.

Karen, Queen of Squishies -
nope, not doing business there again

Yes, that's the same number PayPal has listed for them.

Re: does anybody know about this shop?
The copyright on the website is 2008 so I would think they are still in
business.

Re: does anybody know about this shop?
I'd be inclined to stop payment and then email and ask that the order be
cancelled.  This doesn't sound good with no email response and the phone not
working.  You can buy batiks anywhere- I think materialpleasures.com has all
their fabric, including a nice selection of batiks, for $6 a yard again this
week.  Better safe than sorry....

Is that the right url Leslie?  That's an antique and vintage textile
site.....or did I miss something on the website?  And there are some pricey
fabrics there!

Re: does anybody know about this shop?
that address appears to be a residental one, she must be working from home.
if you do cancel the order, give her a full explanation so she can improve her
business practices.
this shouldnt happen to anyone.
quick accurate contact with customers should be the minimum one expects from any
business.

Re: does anybody know about this shop?
I wouldn't know how to give her a full explanation if I can't communicate to
her.  I'm going through PayPal now, to see what they can do.

Re: does anybody know about this shop?
Darnnit!  I can never remember if it's marterialpleasure.com or
materialpleasures.com  If one doesn't work then try the other.  The owner's
name is Leslie (also!)- you might want to email her and be sure the sale is
still on for the $6 a yard prices.  She changes the price on your invoice-
the sale price won't show on the website or on your emailed confirmation
invoice.  I have spent oodles of $$$ there for 3-4 years now and she NEVER
fails to change the cost to the sale price before she bills you- if you
order within the correct time frame, etc.  And she's extremely fair on her
shipping charges.  Sorry for the mix-up!

Re: does anybody know about this shop?
I ordered a set of nine 5 x 5 Butterfly Batik panels.  I'm sure I can find
them elsewhere.  I do want to make sure my payment is reversed first though,
like you said.

UPDATE - Re: does anybody know about this shop?
I got my batik panels in the mail on the 22nd.  Still no note or
communication.  I don't know if I got them because of the PayPal thing, or
if this was the normal delivery.  But I got them!  : )
They are SO beautiful!
