Re: If you shop at the Q, what's the one item you pass up to buy locally?

PLANTS.  I have tried for 2 years purchasing from QVC and have been disapointed both years.   

 

They're smart in  timing the plant shows in the end of winter when you're so ready for spring - everything they show looks so pretty, you order.

 

Not ever again, I ordered some gerber daisy plants this year, dug out a new garden in the back yard for them.....waited, waited, waited - got an email that unfortunately they would not be able to ship them!  By then, it was too late in the buying season to buy them at a local store.

 

Also, I purchased set of 9 day lillies.  Told they would be blooming constantly the first year - only 1 plant this year had 1 flower.  The rest of the plants look like corn stalks - soooo disappointing.

Jeans.  I used to buy D&C, but they were too inconsistent in size, fabric and quality.  I now buy Lee Riders locally.  My size and style always fits the same.

Clothing for sure ... I need to be able to see if I like the style/fit on me before I buy it!

Jewelry and plants.  I don't buy jewelry or plants anywhere, just not interested.

Re: If you shop at the Q, what's the one item you pass up to buy locally?

I haven bought anything from QVC in three years. I did buy a Dooney last week and cancelled it an hour later because I really didn't love it. And I didn't like the almost $12.00 shipping. I ended up buying one I liked better at the Dooney site with free shipping. 

Never would I buy food, I can get that stuff better and cheaper anywhere. 

No clothes or shoes because I'm sure they would not fit and I'm not fond of the styles. No beds, computers or electronics, yesterday's technology today. No jewelry because I don't wear what I have. No makeup because I can go to Sephora or Ulta. No kitchen gadgets because I have enough and can buy elsewhere with coupons and free shipping.  No plants because they would just die in the heat. I just window show at QVC if that.

Everything! I used to be an avid Q shopper but their no sales, high shipping prices and extremely slow shipping (sits in process for days!) have soured me. I now shop mostly Amazon and only shop locally for my clothing, shoes, etc.
