Don't get me wrong, I love vintage clothes, I don't mind paying what they are worth ---- I love history and I love buying those tiny pieces of time in a cloth! However I just have to vent right now about my ebay frustration!!! I bought 3 dresses on ebay. (no name on seller I will vent on my own blog other places) said combined shipping, 3-4 dol per addt'l item. So I purchased. Now the invoice I get says 25.80 for total shipping for 3 lightweight dresses (not formals, lightweight day dresses) she is overcharging by hmmm almost 9 dollars from what org post said. I've sent emails over a 4 day period now. Requesting correct amount. Or at least tell me you've determined this is it period. Don't just not respond. Seller has many many transactions, vintage seller (granted with many stains etc but I noticed they were noted for the most part on feedback) --- but I CAN'T GET HER TO RESPOND TO MY EMAILS. Zero, zip nada one respond! But I'm not just blithely paying her excessive shipping by her lack of response. I did go back further further on and read in the last six months (now that I have experienced no response) she has gotten that complaint six times (doesn't respond comb shipping not correct) She also updated her existing ebay listings as of today ---- to not show 3-4 dollars on each item combined. just generic combined discount. Hmmmm
So what does one do? Pay the hiefer? Gritch on a blog? I suppose decide how badly i want these dresses (they weren't stupendous they were 70's hippie a theme for me at present time) 50's prom? I'd pay it and shutitup:) Sigh. Very unique? Again with the shutup and pay. But they're fairly generic hippie just what appeared to be a decent price, ones I didnt have. hmmm I answered myself. I'm just not excited about those little suckers now. I don't like being misled. and not responded to.
Most of the sellers I've purchased from on ebay? Wonderful, love vintage, know far more than I and great experiences. Sigh. (PS I just loved the above photo, it's gran and she was a hoot) Wish I had her clothes.
Read read and learn learn.
PS Carol thank you for the blog, it's great I love love seeing the amazing stupendous clothes other are lucky to have!
