On the 18th I sent the seller a message asking, how many items were in the lot in total? Also, what are the sizes? Are they all linen? Do any have any stains, flaws, damage or defects of any kind? And how many are monogrammed? I received no reply so sent another message on the 21st stating that she had not replied and repeating the questions. Still no reply so on the 23rd I sent a third message stating, "I'd love to bid on this if you'd only answer my questions!!!! :-)" Still no reply. Now it's the 25th, the day the auction ends. So I send another message stating:
"I'm sorry that you are unable to answer my questions. However, I would like it noted that if I bid on this item and win that I would like it to be shipped USPS First Class Mail Intl / First Class Package Intl Service rather than Priority Mail.
Thanks so much!"
Finally, I get a message from the seller saying that she was away and that she would answer my questions when she gets home. So I ask,
"Thanks for your response. So do you mean that while you are away, even though you have internet access, you don't reply to buyers' questions? This item ends in less than 9 hours. Will you be home in time to answer my questions?
Then she finally answers some of my questions but not all. I ask again about the size of the items. She says she can't measure them because there in the "original state", meaning there in boxes, I assume. So I ask her to measure the boxes, which she does and provides me with the measurements. I'm happy, I think everything's fine and I go to bid....and I'm blocked!
I realize that tone doesn't always translate well in emails, so I made sure to say thank you and include 's to show I was not angry in any way. But to no avail! Was I considered a "difficult" buyer because I wanted answers to my questions? I would very much appreciate your thoughts!
