I did away with a few suppliers and figured I'd try a new (to me) supplier...in this case...Fillmore. I was just grabbing a handful of 1 ozers for testing, go to check out, hit calculate shipping....and it showed a whopping 24$ to ship 5 - 1 oz bottles from PA to CT!!! What in the .... ???? Are suppliers losing their minds lately? Wax went up. FO's went up. And shipping is absolutely ridiculous!!!

What happens if you add, maybe, 5 cases? Sometimes those carts have a high min, then reasonable incremental.

 

for glass bottles, I typically go with either bulk apothecary or specialty bottle -whichever I am buying other packaging from.  Ebay or Amazon is perfect for a dozen or fewer.

Fillmore does not offer any flat rate USPS for small things.  So every time I order from there I make sure I have enough to make it worth it.  I think a couple years ago I contacted them about it to see if they would do it but it's just not an option in the shopping cart but they just said no.

I was looking to buy Fragrance Oil Samples. I won't buy 16 oz bottles right off the bat with a new supplier. Learned my lesson with that a long time ago. LOL

They really should implement something though. 24$ shipping for 5 FO samples is insane! Oh well...guess my business will go elsewhere until they do add different shipping options. :)

I feel your pain. 
from the business’ side, though, small orders are expensive to process.

 

what samples di you choose? I have a small cache of fillmore FO I will not be using. If I have them I can send them to you.

You don't have to do that :) I'm sure I can find them elsewhere. Thanks though ❤️

The fragrances are “ok”. you’re not missing out on much if you choose to bypass the retailer. IMO, you get what you pay for with fo. 

 

Some I like in candles,  just not enough to keep buying them. Iced lemon biscotti is nice and true to the name, my people were not into it. Sad because it threw well 😂

 

Most faded quickly in soap, so not worth the purchase.

 

if I see them and think of it I will list what I have in classies in case anyone is interested.

The Iced Lemon Biscotti and Citrus Balsam were on my list....can't even remember the other 3. LOL
