Thanks for inviting me into this friendship group, Sharon - truly grateful! I see I am going to have fun here. My eyes just caught a post about clutch bags, and this is something I am looking to add to my accessories, once my site is up and running. But for now, I must sort out the shipping before I go anywhere further, lol!
I tested the USPS postage on the site as you had suggested and got the same results as when I had tried it a few months ago; typically when I put in all the details, it came up with some huge shipping price - as much as $80+. Meanwhile when I took the same package to the post office, I didn't pay more than $25.00 for it. I really am confused, and don't know what to do. Thanks for any help that you can offer in this area.
I was referring to a clutch handbag. I saw a few community members post photos of sinamay clutches so I assumed that they made them. Not sure if they are just ordered as a plain clutch and then decorated to match the hat. Was just looking for some insight.
I love that you do Vintage hats; especially love the riding hats, since I am in a Victorian Society. I love the Civil War, and Victorian period history. Take care, and keep up the great work! Vicki L. Cristiani
