😡Dennis Basso 60" x 70" Faux Fur Oversized Throw 25th Anniversary😡

WARNING! Heads up! Think twice before spending your money on one of these throws! I made the mistake and purchased 9 of these throws. I watched numerous presentations when it was a TSV and I mistakenly bought in to the hype. The throws I received are nothing like the throws described. They are thin, more scratchy than soft and honestly look cheap. I am angry at myself for having spent $49.47 for shipping and now I have to spend an additional $30.85 to ship the throws back, $80.32 WASTED!  That was an expensive lesson. Based on this experience  I will never purchase anything from Dennis Basso and I will not be doing any of my Christmas shopping at QVC.

Isn't there another thread by you about this same subject?  By the way, lots of favorable reviews.

DB is over priced on many of his items.   I bought one of the throws a few years ago and sent it back,  I bought a leather jacket and the zipper had a tooth missing.  Sent it back

He is over priced in many ways, ornaments, clothes and chaskies

She hasn't calmed down yet.

Yes, I did post a thread yesterday when I received the throws. I posted this today because I am just so aggravated after figuring how much money I wasted in shipping! 

 

I am amazed that there are any positive reviews. It’s hard to believe they are reviewing the same throw. And I honestly hope they enjoy their purchase. 

 

I don’t mean to beat a dead horse but I am just so darn mad at myself for wasting money!

Nope! I figured out how much I wasted in shipping costs and just got fired up again!  😡 I’ll cool off, just needed to let off a little steam. 🙂

I ordered a Dennis Basso throw years ago as a gift for a friend who was having surgery.  It was absolutely beautiful.  I was sorry that I didn't order one for myself and when I went to order they were sold out.  SO -- quite some time later I bought one when it was a TSV.  No comparison to the quality of the first one I bought.  I was very disappointed and returned it.  Lesson learned.

Why $30+ to send it back? I can't imagine.

I bought one of his throws years ago. Really nice and I still have it. I have learned that the more they say how wonderful it is beware of what ever it is. Especially later in the day.
