Ever wish you could get your hands on a pair of amazing custom drapes at an even more amazing deal? Well, let me let you in on a little secret. Turns out that when leading online custom drapery retailer DrapeStyle is finished using their drapes for catalog photo-shoots, showroom samples or just have overstock fabrics that post those drapes on a part of their website called THE OUTLET. They don’t promote it very often but you can actually buy amazing and unique, often one of a kind custom drapes for 50-70% off retail price. You won’t have all of the flexibility to create your own custom size but if they will work in your home you’ll get an amazing deal. Remember though, these are unique items and they often only have one pair available so, if they work, grab them really fast before they are gone. You’ll get amazing quality and an even more amazing price, keep in mind that these are usually the drapery panels that they are featuring for a catalog!
We thought it might be a good idea, as today is April 15th, to make a short entry regarding the dreaded subject of “Taxation”. Fortunately, for Customers of DrapeStyle and many other Internet Retailers, at least for the time-being, the news is good. As of today, DrapeStyle is only required to collect Sales Tax for online purchases which are being shipped to a California Address. This is because our DrapeStyle Business locations, or Nexus, are all based in California. So if you are lucky enough to be living outside of California, than No Sales Tax for you! For many of our Customers in states with high sales tax rates this can mean you are saving 6-10% on your order. No bad.
Unfortunately for all of us, the good news may not last for long. There are proposals being debated in Congress that, if ratified, would require that Internet Retailers begin collecting sales tax for sales transacted with residents in the States of Maryland and Hawaii. While these “State-Specific” Tax Changes may be the early adopters, the successful passage of such legislation would set the stage for a National Internet Sale Tax in the future.
