I was given the "green light" from steeldrifter to post the following info on Feather Emporium.
Because my last order to FE was not delivered in a timely manner, I did some checking and found the following disturbing info:
http://tinyurl.com/yb6jx9h9 This is a link to the BBB of Madison, WI
http://tinyurl.com/yaldhg2o This is from the "Complaints Board"
http://tinyurl.com/yae2uz6n This is another link from the BBB of Madison, WI (has two pages of complaints)
http://tinyurl.com/yb6svhuc This is a link from the "review center"
http://tinyurl.com/ybkebnyn This is a link to "sitejabber"
http://tinyurl.com/ya638owk This is a link from a fly fishing forum
Please note that the BBB of Madison, WI notes that "This Business is NOT BBB Accredited" and has an "F" in the top right of the webpage. There were many more links on this on the page I Binged for, but hopefully what I have provided will give someone pause before then decide to purchase from this vendor. I have no personal grudge against this vendor, but I sincerely believe that anyone who is contemplating a purchase from FE should look before they leap.
Someone on this forum told me earlier that I should "be careful when ordering from this vendor". I did not heed that astute advice and so here we are.
One thing that I really sets me off is that his website is still up and running and more than willing to take your order AND your money. I am certain that I have lost my money as others have as well.
If this warning post will prevent someone else from losing their money to this vendor then, mission accomplished.
