Did anyone order the Websters Pages November Warehouse sale box? I placed my order November 26 and got a confirmation. Just wondering if anyone has received their box yet?

Same here. No box. I assume I'll get another notification when it ships.

I emailed them today and they wrote back saying that they have been really busy due to the warehouse sale and they have been shipping boxes but the rest should be done within 5 days so they might not have shipped your box yet, remember they don't charge your card until the box ships! When the box does ship they will send you an email or update your order page! Long time I know but I'm sure they had a ton of orders!

I got an email saying my first box shipped. This was Monday. I haven't gotten an update on the second box I purchased two days after the first box.

BTW what happened to my original thread about this warehouse sale? Did it get deleted because 2peas also sells Websters pages stuff?

My box arrived last night (Wednesday) but I did not see it until I was leaving for work this morning. It is safe and sound in the garage waiting for me to come home and open it.

I wonder how the order of the shipping goes with them.. I would think its first buy first ship but i doubt it.. Because I literally purchased my box on Monday the day of the sale at 12:30pm and they posted the sale at 12:00pm and my box still hasn't shipped.. Hopefully it will soon because I'm dying to see my goodies since this is my first warehouse box from them! Even though there's. list of products I never look at because I like to be suprised! Just like OA showed a sneak peak of there week 3 box I was bummed because I really wanted to not know until I received it lol..

Ordered within the first 90 minutes on the first day. I did receive a confirmation email, but no email yet regarding shipping. I bet they aren't doing them first in, first shipped.

Mine is confirmed - it's been 11 days now - but has not shipped yet, and I was one of the first to place an order. I'm beginning to get a bit worried because I would like it to be here for Christmas since that's my hubby's Christmas gift for me. Guess I'll maybe get it for New Years... Oh, well...

I didn't get a notice, but when I check the order status it says that it has shipped. I'm excited to get it as I ordered one this summer and loved it. I ordered mine within the first hour they were available.

I'm really suprised at how long it has taken them to ship the boxes out I understand that it's a huge sale and its Christmas time but 11 days and counting and still hasn't shipped its becoming a little bit insane.. I'm hoping they ship mine soon! I order within the first 30mins of the sale you would think it would be first come first ship but I guess not! OA does there boxes that way i order my box the second the sale goes up on Monday @1:01 CST and it arrived by friday like clock work! Not even a week ..doesn't websters know that us peas wanna play with our new things lol

I checked and mine still says 'confirmed'. And now it's the weekend so they're not likely to ship until Monday at the earliest. No box for me for Christmas then... It typically takes 2-3 weeks for a package to reach Sweden, especially this time of the year. How disappointing!
I'm a bit puzzled over this. I've ordered from WP several times this year (warehouse sale, sprinkle boxes, pre-orders) and they have always been great, shipping the products within a week. Did the news of Allison Kreft designs got them all so excited that they forgot about the warehouse sale?

I don't care how busy they are...this is totally unacceptable that they haven't shipped all the warehouse boxes yet. It was my first time ordering from Webster Pages....it may also be my last.

My first time ordering also. I'm dissapointed they haven't shipped also, especially when they should have had all the boxes ready to go and just had to get them mailed.

I agree with angel-mom, they should have had at least some boxes already packed and ready to go. Mine is still sitting at confirmed only. This was my first time ordering and I doubt I will do it again.

On the other hand I can't say enough great things about October Afternoon. I ordered one of their Santa Sacks for the first time, had an issue with PayPal, OA contacted me to fix it, my package was shipped and received all within a week. Awesome customer service and a great experience!

While I've not received the box, I have learned a valuable lesson. I will never again use the Fed Ex smart post. Eight days to travel 625 miles to my house is :

Mine took 5 days to go cross country. I chose FedEx but USPS delivered it. I still can't believe all the stuff I got for the $25!! Wish I could show it all in my pic.

Oooh, thanks for the pic! Now I'm even more bummed that they haven't even shipped my box yet. Hellooo, I'm overseas! It takes time for it to get here!

And I have to point out, again: It's a Christmas gift for me. NOT an Easter egg!

Just seeing if there is any update. Mine still just says "confirmed" and I also ordered within the first few hours of the sale.

And I agree with you on OA. I ordered 2 of the 3 kits, and they both arrived within two to three days.

I did get this reply from Webster Pages:

the first week of the sale, our warehouse is taking pre-orders and packing boxes. Then, we start shipping the next week. All orders should be out within 1-2 weeks so by the end of this week, all orders should be on their way! Thanks so much for your patience, our warehouse is working like mad to get them out!!

I think I picked Smart Post - was that the cheapest one? Does it come by mail or Fed Ex question to those who have received yours?

Hey guys,

If you need me to check on your order specifically, just email me at cwalsh (at) websterspages (dot) com! I am more than happy to do that!

I'm not sure if I can answer all your questions, but I will try. I don't believe they are processed in the order they are received. The first week, we are taking pre-orders. Shipping starts the second week. We typically are able to pack/ship about 100/day. I've just heard from our CS team and they are predicting all orders will be shipped this week!

That said, I'm happy to check on orders if you want me to! (And I got a confirmation that mine shipped as well, so I'm right there with you girls! I can't wait for my box!!)

If you need me to check on your order specifically, just email me...


You are SO sweet to offer! And the offer is greatly appreciated.
But I'm 100% certain that the delay is because of Fed-Ex. The tracking number provided shows that they received on the 5th and estimated delivery is the 13th!

So I am going to continue to patiently wait on my box. It's So going to be worth the wait!

(But I'm still snarly at Fed-Ex...we live within two hours of their main hub in Memphis. Where the tracking shows it was YESTERDAY and now it's in MS somewhere. Grrrrr....)

Just received my box and it is amazing. There seems to be more items included than in the 1st one, but I could be wrong. It is so worth the wait, though. Just jam-packed with beautiful product.

BTW, I ordered within a half hour of it going on sale and it didn't ship for about a week. The last time, it shipped the day after I ordered it. Doesn't matter to me...it's the best deal ever!

Thanks for the photos that were posted. So excited to get my hands on these goodies!

I am still waiting on my box to arrive. I just checked fed-ex (I picked smart post) and my box is in Clinton PA. Earlier today delivery was expected for tomorrow, now it says Thursday.

I really want to get my hands on these goodies and am not happy with Fed Ex. Websters shipped my goodies on the 6th from North Carolina. North Carolina to Ohio should not take a week. *sigh*

Hopefully my goodies will be here for the weekend!

Mine arrived today. If given the option, I will pay extra to avoid having a package sent by Smart Post ever again - from NC to central FL took 6 days. The box is packed with pretty things as posted earlier

Not any word for me yet. But they say on FB that every box should be shipped by Friday so there's a couple of days left before hope is completely gone. I have to say that I'm not even excited anymore. I get more annoyed for every day that goes by without a shipping notice. I was one of the first to order and I got my confirmation the same day (!), but when it comes to shipping I'm suddenly the last in line? I'm sorry to be whiny about this, but I'm just soooo very disappointed.

Margareta,

The first time I read through this, I must've missed what you were saying...I wish I'd seen it, can you email me? I need your last name and I can check on your box for you. (cwalsh@websterspages.com) I don't want to send you an Easter egg either! ha.

Unfortunately, we have no control over the boxes once they are actually shipped (I know this is not everyone's issue, but for some people I realize it adds to the frustration!)

We do apologize for not explaining the shipping process from the start...In the future, we will be sure to note at the beginning of the sale when the shipping starts and that it will take 1-2 weeks after that to get all the boxes out.

Trust me, I'm taking notes so we can make sure you guys are completely informed each time we do these kinds of things!! Thanks for your patience (and feedback), girls!!

Courtney,
Thanks for your offer of help. The thing that bothers me is I ordered Nov 26th and my status hasn't changed from confirmed. There are others on the board that have ordered after that date and received their product. I saw the post on FB about everything going out by Friday, so I will continue to be patient. I just think good buisness practice is first come, first served regardless of shipping choice. It would be like waiting in line at a restaurant and someone walking up to the guy who just walked in the door and saying "We will serve you now" with 20 people in front of him.

Ok, I understand now. I didn't understand either. I made sure to order within the first hour of the sale thinking I would get it faster. Now I see that it doesn't matter when you ordered. So, just how do they decide what ships first? Just curious. I think explaining this more ahead of time will help next time so we aren't so antsy. I was hoping for my birthday which is tomorrow, now I'm hoping it will arrive at least before Christmas. Thanks for explaining things Courtney.

mamamulescraps and oldwesternpea, I agree with you. It's not the part that the shipping begins a week after the sale that is difficult to understand. It's the part where the very first orders get shipped last of all, that is a bit confusing.

Generally, in most businesses, the first orders get shipped first. But not so at WP. Maybe I should wait longer to order the next time?

Anyway... Thanks to Courtney, my box is now shipped and should arrive here some time in early January.

While I never expect warehouse sales to ship quickly, and while I never really get anything from WP very quickly, I'm starting to get a little peeved (regarding Smartpost, not WP) because while mine did ship on December 5, it has yet to arrive. It just seems silly that anything should take 8 days (and counting) to get anywhere these days. I think that they should probably change the name of SmartPost to TriparoundtheWorldPost or We'lltakeaslongaswedarnwellpleasePost.
