I ordered three Chamilia Beads and four bracelets and they sent each piece in a separate box!!

On a better note, the eighth box had these two items in it....



WOW! A single piece in each box!? I could only imagine that conversation with the DH and UPS man!
But I really LIKE your CC holder and comics bag! You got the PRincess Minnie and even Pluto! Yea!

DS.com really needs to get their shipping act together.

Does anyone ever work out trades or anything? Just curious how others handle it!
I bolded what I usually do and I always end up loving it!

You can't have that in this situation but I wanted to encourage you that there are great people out there who will help you. Unfortunately, they charge huge prices. You are getting this purse for better than I got the Aulani Price wise that is. I paid $399, and that included shipping thru UPS which was probably around $25. So you are saving $50 from what I paid
Thanks for information, Kathy! Sure to appreciate what you wrote!
Well, I'll find out tomorrow morning if I have a marathon Colette or not.
Please send Pixie Dust my way!!!!

That stack of boxes is crazy! I can't believe they packaged each item individually like that. Love your new Dooney's!

And I do not have a Collette bag. Looked online for the dimensions on ds.com and it looks like I would really like this. So, why not.
Missed out on the Tinkerbell, maybe I can get this one.

Just bumming a little over the darn pricetag, dang it!
I have a feeling there could be a whole lot of competition to get the princess bags, so maybe think of it as paying a premium not to have to deal with that nonsense (says someone who has waited in insane lines for Disney merchandise and who would have gladly paid someone to do it for me)

I can't wait to see pictures of your new bag!

I multi quoted so I could answer, then realized I honestly don't know that I have a preference for one over the other. I'd probably be in the same situation you are.

I definitely overbuy, never really had buyers remorse about it though. I'm more likely to regret not getting something I wanted, especially once it goes out of stock. My theory: I'd rather have it and not want it than want it and not be able to get it.

I do have some bags that still have all the tags on that I've never used, and I might end up letting them go eventually, but I just keep them stored carefully until I make up my mind.

I haven't returned anything to DS.com, but I have returned a couple of things in the park. DL is pretty strict about that though, so I don't do it often. I've also sold both on e-bay and on the Facebook page. And there's always the use them as gifts option.

Lynn.. you got awesome placement on your disney dooneys.

Tammie I have bought some disney dooneys directly with some ebay buyers and have used paypal as the payment method. Just check their feedback and make sure you are comfortable with the transaction. Sending you TEXAS size pixie dust so you get the purse you want

I am the queen of regret. I have sold many things on ebay and done fairly well. I have also returned to ds.com. I have also kept things. I guess I have done it all I am very quick to buy and really think about it later. I am also good at selling it and regretting that I am a mess but very grateful for ebay to make up for my mistakes. I don't know if this helps at all but at least you are not alone with the over buying

I didn't ordered any Dooneys this time, but got a single bead in a box like that today, and my other 2 (SMALL) items were shipped separately. Sure seems like a lot of wasted shipping, doesn't it?!
I was just going to say the same thing! Wasted shipping! Not only do they send things in separate boxes but they use boxes way bigger than what is necessary. For such a big company, you'd think they'd ship smarter.

Thank you SO MUCH for the information! Really really appreciate it. I love the Erica - the only thing wrong with it for me was the strap being too short, so this info is GREAT!
