• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I sold a cheap t-shirt, got a message that just says, “have you shipped this?” after one day during a global pandemic. Band together, people!

Also, the selling portion of my app looks different (thicker fonts, slightly different colors) yet the App Store says I haven’t updated it. I hope all is well.

That's brutal man. Really hope they can catch it before it goes through. Why are people the way that they are?

Had a crazy older woman in Quebec comment three times pushing me to ship her Poshmark purchase asap. Guess what part of Canada now has the most active cases and the most dismissive attitude to social distancing?

That’s shitty. Order a label maker!

I responded to the dude, and he was really nice about the delay. I think sometimes I just need to remember that digital natives communicate in ways that can seem rude to those who remember the old world of complete thoughts, full sentences.

Oh, I have an inkjet printer at home. (side-note: does anyone on here print US-bound Canada Post labels on a Dymo 4xl or know if it's even possible to do so?) I dropped a bunch of packages at the post office today on my way to stock up on some groceries.

I just thought it was sad that this lady was so desperate for me to ship immediately given everything that's going on around her. I responded to each of her comments politely and shipped when I said I would.

I passive-aggressively thanked her for her patience when I got home. That'll show her!

Used, 100% cotton, and made in China? I seriously wouldn't do more than about $25, if that. Not a big Ralph customer though, so I may be off...
Same company... But, my RRL customers are totally different from my "Ralph" customers.

not here to argue but hand knit = probably at least 20-40 human hours involved in that sweater. $25 ok.

also harder to hand knit cotton than wool

Two weeks ago I won a bunch of ties (15) on Ebay, but the seller refused to send a total / ship them in one shipment, and instead wanted $10 in shipping for EACH tie - so I was stuck with $150 in shipping, for items worth around $20 in total (most of the ties I won with opening $0.99 bid)

I messaged the seller, and explained that I felt we should just cancel the auctions, as the $150 shipping was too high.

The seller then opened up unpaid item cases for each and every item. Today all cases were closed, and I now have 15 unpaid item cases on my record.

Is there anything I can do?
