horrible ebay




So i was just having a little look around pinterest and i found this lovely little blog - where the lovely things are.


On this blog are cute prints from the Tom Eckersley Archives which reminded me of my horrible ebay experience last week.


I don't use eBay much and now i am very reluctant.... I won/bought a Polaroid camera for my new instant photo needs and possible brewing obsession.  It was $35 and it looked lovely.  I paid.  It arrived two days latter... SMASHED!  So angry.  One little layer of bubble wrap in a plastic, yes plastic satchel.


Apparently its not his problem , Australia post is to blame.  And lodging a claim for damaged goods is not something i feel like doing.  So i think it will go in the bin... So sad. Is it bad that i cant be bothered fighting for $35??  By no means am i wealthy, i would say i live month to month and $35 could be used for a few things, like dog food... 


I just don't have the fight in me.  No more ebay for me.  Its over.  


I think Tom Eckersley had a similar experience to me.  His prints are so lovely.

Thanks for reminding me! I just did the negative feedback thing and i am now feeling somewhat better about the situation.

oh, how sad. It is his fault, a camera should be wrapped in more than just one layer of bubble warp! Am glad you gave him bad feedback.
