Announcement    Here is the USPS shipping schedule cut off for Christmas arrival:
First Class Dec 20
Priority Dec 21
Express Dec 23
We know they do not have the best track record, so I would recommend shipping by at least one or two days sooner than they have expressed.

We are located just 8 miles from Art Gallery fabrics. If there is an AG design you would like but do not see, please request it. If it is in stock with AG, we can likely pick it in a day. We are happy to do this for larger orders. It is not cost effective to drive there daily for 1/2 yard orders.

International shoppers: Etsy is collecting a 10% tax on the total including shipping to Australia. I have not had other recent international orders, so I can not be sure of what any others might be. It will show up in your cart automatically.

Etsy has doubled their selling fees plus added a new fee for shipping. Blend has also raised their fabric prices. Some shops will likely be raising prices to cover this but our pricing to you will remain the same. Hooray!
I only increase shipping in line with new USPS rates when they change.

Etsy is also trying convince us to make our shipping free and increase product cost. Honestly, I think you will end up paying more in the long run doing it that way. Since fabric is sold in yards and fractions of yards, the weight comes out to so many different numbers that it makes it hard to put a cost on a quarter of a yard and apply it to individual increments of the listing and it be truly accurate. I am leaving my shipping prices as is and as always amounts $.50 + above actual cost will be refunded. If shipping is free but you overpaid too much, it can’t be refunded because the amount is already zero. To figure out your total cost of the fabric(s) you want from different sellers, add it to the cart from each seller and look at the total price for the yardage including shipping. That way you can do real comparison price shopping. When we have free shipping sales, you can be sure our fabric prices have not been increased to cover it. It will be a true sale.

Some upcoming collections will be added to the Pre-Order sections. Read listings carefully for release dates! Some are over 6 months away.

Check the PRE-ORDER SALE section for sale pricing on upcoming collections. Buy early and save!! The Pre-Order section shows pre-orders where the sale has ended but the fabric has not yet arrived.
If you do not see one or both of these sections on the left, then that means there are no current pre-orders. Check back!

USPS Priority Flat Rates for quilter's weight cotton fabric:
Envelope $7.45 (1-4 yards)
Padded Envelope $8.05 (5-9 yards) (8 yds International due to weight)
Medium Box $13.35 (10-18 yards)
Large Box $18.15

*If you are in Australia, your best deal is Priority because I can ship 8 yards for $35.35. 3 yards standard shipping is $24.
*If you are in Canada, your best deal is 2yds+. The shipping cost of 1 yd is $10 BUT shipping for 2-5 yds is $15.70. Priority shipping to Canada for 1-7 yds. is $24.20
Remember, I always refund excess shipping over $.50 or you can request a listing with exact shipping cost.

You can now use Apple Pay and Google Pay at checkout!

Current turnaround time is 1-2 business days. Thanks for stopping by! Have a seat on our porch, browse our goodies and hopefully you find just what you were looking for and maybe even a goodie or two you didn't know you "needed."

The Palm Cottage

I have a deep love for fabrics. LOVE I tell ya! So, it made sense that while looking for a business I could start at home and grow with time, this would be the one.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
At this time we do not accept returns unless you were sent the entirely wrong item, but we believe in making and KEEPING our customers happy. If for some reason you are not happy with your purchase, please let us know and we can arrange a solution to meet your satisfaction.
Payment
Pay at checkout with Paypal, major credit cards, Google Pay and Apple Pay. FL residents: 6% sales tax will be automatically added to your order.

Customs and duties in other countries is to be paid by the buyer if your postal provider requires it. The UK is hitting people hard with customs fees lately. Do your research first to find out what it could be. Sellers in one country have no way of knowing who "might" be charged extra by customs in another country. It is usually random and like rolling the dice. You may not get a fee one time but will another.
Shipping
We ship with the United States Postal Service. Mail pick-up is around 11AM (EST). So, your order will likely go out the day after it is placed but please allow up to 2 business days for processing, especially during the Holidays.
First Class Shipping takes 4-6 business days and is only available up to 16 oz. (2.5 yds. of fabric) and anything more is shipped Priority or parcel if it is a very large order. If you have overpaid actual shipping by $1 or more, you will receive a refund. If you would like insurance for 1-2 yards, please request a custom listing for it. All orders 3 yards + have insurance included.
Delivery confirmation is always included, even with First Class. You can upgrade a 1 or 2yd. purchase to Priority 2-3 days yourself by purchasing the Priority Upgrade listing in our shop. 3 yds or more is ALWAYS shipped Priority. The USPS does not "guarantee" 2-3 days.
If you need Express 1-2 days, please ask for a private listing. Prices start at $14 and must be ordered by 3PM EST to go out the same day. The further you live from Florida, the higher the cost. The USPS does guarantee 1-2 days and extra shipping will be refunded if delivered late. I do not know how long that refund can take.

It is the buyers responsibility to ensure correct address with your payment, when checking out. Please, double check!! I ship to the address shown on your Etsy payment receipt/invoice. Items that are shipped to a wrong address can be diverted in transit to a different address for a fee of $15.

Assume that items purchased after 12PM EST on Friday will ship the next Monday. It will probably ship Friday or Saturday but it is not guaranteed.

NOTE: When you see a shipping label has been created, that means your order has just been packaged up and IS going out the door that day. I do NOT print labels ahead of time like other businesses do. The post office does not update very well, so it can take two days to see movement in the tracking. On a very rare occasion I print a label, miss my carrier and can not make it to a drop box or PO before last pick-up/closing. As of writing this, it has happened twice in 4 years.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have a request for additional yardage than is shown available or if there is a fabric you want but don't see, please, feel free to ask! There is a chance that if there is enough interest, we can order it or it might just already be on order and you'll be one of the first to know.
At this time, listings are for 1 yard amounts but smaller amounts can also be accommodated down to a fat quarter. Please ask for a custom order for these or any half yard amount, like 2.5 yards. The shipping on Etsy is not a great system to sell in many sizes, so it makes the most sense for us to list in 1 yard amounts. Other size pricing is fractional based on the 1 yard price. Example: if 1 yard is $10, then a half yard will be $5, etc. Shipping of a half yard by itself costs the same as 1 yard because it falls in the same weight range.
