Remember the outrageous price hike? Well I was patiently waiting for the Rockin Sock Club yarn that BMFA sent via USPS on 14th June. It sat in San Francisco for 5 days, yes Five days!!!!!!!! A comment made was that the price hike was for the extra rental of space for storing parcels for all those days, but USPS isn't a storage company, it is a postal service, right???
The long and short of this post is that I go on holiday/vacation tomorrow and will have to wait another week plus to receive my STR club yarn. I was hoping to post a pic for YPF but that ain't going to happen now. And what does USPS say the parcel should arrive in.....up to 10 days well it is 9 days today.
RooBeeDoo posted that she got a parcel from US very cheaply, but that wasn't trackable post and the yarn companies like BMFA need tracking to keep the customers satisfied.
If USPS isn't more careful they will put an end to a lot of US businesses at this rate.
