I love ZipperStop

Have you shopped at ZipperStop.com?? I officially love them. Not only do they have a fantastic selection of everything zipper but they have great service to go along with it. I have ordered from them a few times but I always had a hard time figuring out which color I wanted from the monitor. No more of that guessing crap for me. I bought the color card for $10 so I can match or contrast to my heart's delight. I never realized that they offered quite so many colors. Cool, eh? We do have a local JoAnn's and a local fabric boutique. I buy from them when I need a basic color but they certainly don't have the selection that ZipperStop does.


My girls were oohing and awing over this section. Then they both turned to me and announce, "Pink is myyyyyyy favorite!" Twins can be a bit creepy sometimes.


Here is the boucle I plan to use for the Wardrobe contest. I bought these zipper a long time ago. I don't remember ordering pink but whatever. I think I'll use the dark purple one.


Nice?


Here's the color card all folded up.


I also bought 50 yards of 3/4" elastic. I use quite a bit of this size when I make kid pants. It is rolled up on top of the color card. It's very large. I'll have elastic for a looooong time.

I love Zipperstop. Every zipper I could ever want and no minimum order, so if all I want is one oddly-colored separating zip for a sweater, I can have it.

I'll definitely order that YKK card. Especially for the jacket zipper colors!

Creepy? No, I think it's fun and amazing! Do your girls have their own 'language' too? My nephews definitely did - my brother claimed he understood them sometimes and could talk with them. The twins were also identical; I do think that is a factor in the 'think alike' area!

Umm. I think the purple is okay, but I'd personally use black.

oh, and the pink zipper? I think that was a subconscious request from the twins.... ;)

Cool! I have ordered from them before and guesses at the colors. I should bite the bullet and get the color card. That thing is big! Their service is wonderful, I agree with you.

Dawn, which card did you get? The jacket one?

Kristine said...

Ooh! I need one of those color cards, too! Joann's never has the color I need...

Dana said...

Yea, I'm gettin' one of those color cards too. I've ordered lots from them but the colors are really never what I thought they would be. Not only is it a great company the prices are like 1/3 less than buying at a fabric store (and they never go on sale anymore!).

I hate compromising color on zips. This is a fabulous alternative. I feel a color card coming.

Eeeee! What a fun store. I'm speechless at the color selection. Thanks for the rave.

My color card just came in the mail today - yippee! Can't wait to get home so I can figure out what zippers I need for my fall sewing projects.

I ordered US$208.50 worth of stuff from Zipper Stop and was charged US$40.00 shipping to Australia, via FEDEX.

Unfortunately Jeff Feibusch dispatched it to an Australian address 1300 miles from where I live.

Does he communicate? NO
Is he going to fix it? NO
... and where does that leave me? well ... $208.50 poorer

Hi Lou,
We solved this problem with you. Fed Ex fixed the address and you received your zippers.
Thanks 1 more time.
Merry Christmas.

Oh I want a color card but it is $35 now.
Is it less with purchase?
