if you go to there sipping page it will tell you the rate, and ups uses shipping by price not weight that is a ripe off.

i like UPS..i use it all the time to ship my own packages...ad it is usually cheaper for me than USPS, so its not a rip off as far as i have used it...thats why i prefer it

my most recent experience was bad, but thats because i didnt know they didnt deliver to PO Boxes, but now i know, so i wont have that problem again

I actually prefer to pay by weight.  Because what if I'm out of a color of mica and I just want to replace that?  I dont want to pay $4 + for shipping for something that will probably cost only $1-3.  Just my personal preference.

I totally agree. Some of my fave suppliers will ship in priority flat rate boxes. Sometimes you can't totally complete check out because they have to manually figure shipping, but it doesn't bother me, and it keeps me going back because of the great service.

Also, of course every store can't carry everything, but it's nice if you have some basics of everything, ie basic fragrances, basic packaging, basic base oils and waxes. I, like everyone else probably, have always been on that elusive search for the "one stop shopping store." It's just super convenient (and saves on shipping) if I'm shopping for fo's and then realize I need a few 4 oz bottles with disc caps, and hey, I can get those here too!

Oh, and I'm a sucker for sales! (who isn't?!) If I see someone is having a sale on pipettes, and I really need pipettes and just kind of need a whole bunch of other stuff, I'll go ahead and get it all. I like when sellers have newsletters/sales ads e-mails.

I can get down to about 3-4 stops though! Ok that's probably a lie...more like 6. And that's not counting the soap suppliers I have in town where I do will calls and pick it up (it's pretty much awesome to not pay to have 5 gallon buckets of base oils shipped!)
