In honor of Thanksgiving I would like to sing the praise of a great website that my friend told me about Ugly Sofa. Sure it was too late before I invested $350 on Roman Shades. I got two Pottery Barn Roman Shades for $29.56 after using a web code I saved $4.00. They are similar to the shade that I wanted from Pottery Barn that cost $249 each! Except the ones on the site are 63 inches long vs the Pottery Barn ones that are 64 inches long. Since that is still long enough for my windows I don't mind the one inch difference! I would mind it on a pair of pants since I am tall but not for my window shade!
I have not received the items yet but so far this seems to be a great deal and they were on clearance on the website. They apparently buy unsold/slightly irregular/or already monogrammed items from Brands like Pottery Barn, Land of Nod, Pottery Barn Teens/kids that might be slightly irregular I am guessing. Then they X out the names of the shades. But for under $30 for two roman shades if it does not work out I will not feel so guilty if I have to donate the Roman Shades. However I hope that the Shades work out because I really need some Roman Shades and soon!
They allow returns but it is very narrow here is the policy:
Shipping & Returns
We can ship to virtually any address in the US and Canada. We charge actual shipping costs within the US and Canada. Please allow 2 business days for processing normal orders. UglySak Bean Bags, Ugly-Where Chairs, Idea Desks and Loungers can take a little longer for processing. Allow 5-7 business days for ground shipping. All shipments are automatically insured with the carrier.
Returns must be postmarked within 72 hours of the original shipping arrival date and should be sent prepaid. We will not accept CODs. All merchandise returned must be unused and in perfect condition. Packing slips are required for all returns. Indicate on the back of your return form the reason of your return so we can serve you better in the future. We recommend you to send the package back to us via traceable carrier and to insure the full amount of the merchandise you are sending back to us. We are not responsible for missing packages.
Etsy and EBay are another good resource before purchasing from websites but I did not find any right ones that could be shipped out in a limited time frame. However it is funny because we still have to retouch the paint so we cannot put up the shades yet. It is going to be even more delayed because Jonathan works all weekend/then goes away until Thursday. So Hoping that these shades come quickly! I got a discount of 15% off the Shades Store and it would have cost $800+ for two basic custom Roman Shades. Compared to The Shades Store, Pottery Barn does not seem so bad!
