We are issuing a warning where travelers should avoid using HOMEAWAY.COM and their extended website of DIRECTSTAY.COM. HOMEAWAY has incorrect listings and appears unable or unwilling to effect any changes. DIRECT STAY is the listing agent on HOMEAWAY where we discovered at least two fraudulent listings. We suspect there are more. THE SPECIFICS: We attempted to book a property in Amsterdam listed on HOMEAWAY for two people for four nights. The listing shows cost to be 45 euro/night/person. So cost for four nights should be 360 euro. DIRECTSTAY, the property manager, responded with a quote of 688 euro! DIRECTSTAY will not respond and HOMEAWAY says it is not their problem! This is a classic BAIT & SWITCH indicating both entities are to be avoided.
Our personalized shopping tour to Japan is what everyone called THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME.
We are pleased to offer clothing patterns which are wonderful for embellishing including quilting. We also offer a wide selection of Japanese textiles including silk, yukata, brocade, kasuri, shibori as well as fabulous shibori haori. For many of these items, we are the only source in the United States or on the internet or both.
For those desiring to create a very special wedding dress, we have a wide selection of light to heavy weight, white silk from Japanese uchikake (wedding kimono) AND we are running a special on this fabric. All have a lovely jacquard while some are embroidered with auspicious symbols including cranes, cherry blossoms, pine boughs and flower carts.
Finally, we offer a large assortment of Japanese dolls, Boy's Day banners, screens, antique textiles, garments plus kimono for children, men and women.
