Help! Need Daltile trim piece but not a whole box..

Hello All,
Well I'm just about done with bathroom #1 and realized I need a 3x3 corner bullnose in one spot. I went back to my dealer and he quoted me $57 for the one piece.. "you're going to have 15 extra, we don't split boxes". I've checked online and found an outfit that will sell me one piece, but they have a $99 minimum shipping charge.
So.. does anyone know where I can get less-than-a-box Daltile? What I need specifically is 3x3 corner bullnose, Scabos ceramic, in SC43 ('Warm Gray') color.
If I need to buy 3 or 4 pieces that's fine, I just don't need a whole box.
Thanks,
bill

Bill - you might try Home Depot - they carry Dal Tile and sell by the pc.

Did you go to Dal, or another tile shop? Try Dal direct if you haven't. The one in San Juan is closest I know of. Depends on where you are in Orange County i guess.

It really sounds like a secondary retailer with an inexperienced salesperson not understanding trim. Call them back and talk to someone else.

I'm with the others, this doesn't sound right. I can see the field tile being sold by the box but not the trim.

Hi guys,
Thanks for the replies...
I'll contact the original guy I worked with at the dealer (I dealt with him on the original order and there didn't seem to be any problem spliting boxes of trim)
Also, there is a Daltile service center right near me (that I didn't know about). Is this for professional/ contractor sales only, or can I (Average Joe Homeowner) walk in an buy tile?
Thanks,
Bill

Some Daltile Service Centers don't care whose money they take. Others will only sell wholesale to contractors and retailers. Check with them and if that is that case, ask for a local retailer having an account with them. Most likely it will be a flooring store.

You can order your trim piece from them. Alternatively, buy it from the retailer for pick-up at the Service Center, saving shipping time that way.
