As much as I'd love to have this hat, I think I'll pass. It sounds like it might be a very small company, possibly even just one person. I really hate to think about how this poor naive, unsuspecting soul is going to get slammed! Thanks for the post though.

I would agree, except that a. She might appreciate the extra interest with people that might actually buy her product and b. I'm sure she has a set amount of samples she's willing to give out and will stop when she stops offering is up to her

Welcome to the board katerose!

My reasoning was that I got the impression from the site that this is a seamstress looking for local business. She mentioned that she would come to your house to take measurements, so I doubt if she was planning to ship thousands of free hats nationwide to people who obviously wouldn't be hiring her. Of course she can just stop when she runs out, provided her site hasn't crashed by then from the thousands of requests that she'll probably be getting!

I don't mind requesting samples of things I know I'll never buy if it's from a big company, but I just feel guilty doing that from small business owners who are probably struggling to stay afloat. JMHO though, and your post was appreciated nonetheless!

This is all true. I did not think of that. I'll be more conscientious with my posts in the future!

You don't have to worry about doing that. Just let everyone make their own decision. We definitely appreciate every opportunity we can get!

I hope you didn't feel like I was lecturing you for posting it because it wasn't that at all. I just was mentioning to others that it looked like it might be a small business in case they felt the same as me and didn't have time to read through her site. Lots of people would have no problem with the request, and that's perfectly okay too. After all, she did offer it!

I didn't take it wrongly at all! You were very courteous in your replies. =]
