Some of the great people I've transacted with on SF: distinctive sartorialism (have purchased multiple times) whusurdadi 330CK frenchy (even though I was a bit uncomfortable sending a check; everything went great) bbhewee prajna12 FStyles NAMOR --- gets special red name because he countered with a lower offer than I PMed him with; Can't imagine that's a common occurrence here at SF B/S. And then my one negative... I had exchanged maybe 15 or so PMs with MiamiRedSkin regarding purchasing one of his two LP cashmere car coats... I had seem them first on SF so I tried to purchase them, but had PMed too late on his auctions. The buyer of one, however, fell through so after seeing it relisted a couple of weeks later, I PMed him and was able to purchase it. All is great (again, there was great communication) but after sending payment, I was told that a housemate had spilled red wine on the coat. I was promptly refunded, and told that I would have a chance to reevaluate my purchase at some sort of discount after MRS got the jacket back from the cleaner. However, I've yet to hear from him regarding post-cleaner pictures and have tried numerous times. He's still logging into SF but is not posting. I'm only out the paypal fees (sent 450, returned about 430 or so) and I'm not certain what SFers typically do in these types of events (as obviously MRS never received the full 450). I'd likely deal with MRS again but I can't help but feel I was maybe misled and/or he found another buyer who was paying more than I was at the last moment.
