I do, however, like improvements. Over the last months we've made a number of small improvements at OSF that have resulted in a big CHANGE.
Cut fabric is now priced by the piece!
(No more $25 Fill-a-Bag option)
The resulting OSF Shopping Adventure should be:
More efficient! The rolls of fabric are neatly arranged in the green bins so the contents are visible at once. No more endless digging and searching. (To those who miss the thrill of the hunt: volunteer to sort and roll. You'll never know such excitement!) Easier for us to keep the place tidy, too.
More clear! The cut fabric is all either:
- Marked with its measurement, in which case it costs $2/m.
- Not marked with its measurement, in which case it is less than a metre long, or is cut strangely. These unmarked pieces are $1 each.
- Otherwise marked. Usually silk, linen, or something special.
More Eonomical! Selling the fabric by the piece means you no longer have to fill a whole bag. Just pay for the pieces you want.
After a period of grumbling and discomfort I generally, grudgingly, admit that any change is for the best. I hope our dear customers will eventually agree. If it helps, you can think of it as little improvements, rather than a big change. Works for me.
What else is new this sale?
Under the tables you will find boxes of cut pieces, all alike, priced by the box. These come from a factory that produces bedding and draperies for hotels. $4 to $20 per box.
Once again, there is a lot of free fabric to be had. A whole lot.
