It appears that $6.95 is the shipping cost for small items at Michael's. I wanted to order some jewelry bails, but guess what? The website won't allow me to buy one pack. I wanted to try a pack before buying 3 packs just in case they are cheaply made. I tried to order a pigment ink pad that was $4.99, but when the $6.95 was added and with a 40% coupon I could not allow myself to pay almost $12 for this one ink pad. It does not cost $6.95 to ship an ink pad. That is extortion in my book.
I was trying to boycott Hobby Lobby, but the more I try to deal with Michael's the more I want to go back to Hobby Lobby (mainly because they are closer to where I live). Joann's is closer to me too, but their prices are outrageous.
Is it just me or is it getting more expensive to even craft these days?
